Take your bridal bouquet from faux to show
By Meghan Russell
Creating your own floral arrangements for the big day can save big bucks. A traditional, hand-tied fake-flower bouquet alone could save you $80 to $100, says crafty floral expert Marc Andrzjewski of Upstate New York. “It’s cheaper and you can control exactly what you want,” he says. “And you can’t break them.”
This wedding season, Andrzjewski walks brides step-by-step through one of his favorite DIY projects: using fake flowers to bring your bridal bouquet to life.
Step 1. Gather the materials.
Step 2. Start building.
Step 3. Tape it off.
Step 4. Apply extras.
Bonus step: Now try your hand at smaller, matching bridesmaids’ bouquets!
