Since we eloped, it is very important to us to find ways to include & honor friends and family members that would have had a part in the ceremony otherwise. One small, but special detail will be making boutonnieres and corsages.
While using fresh flowers is lovely, I have decided that creating something extra special that will last is more important. That way honorees can hold on to a memento, but I also think taking the time to make it myself will add an extra degree of meaning.

These are all beautiful tutorials found on pinterest (but linked to the original sources). I will definitely be trying #2 start to finish as I think it's totally easy and fitting. I'd love to experiment a bit and perhaps include elements from the others as well.
The next four images are from etsy:

I really appreciate the palette and woodsiness of #6 & #7. I think either of these would totally convey the sophisticated style I'm going for. Just look at that ribbon rose though in #5- love it. And #8 is a collection of shabby fabric roses I already bought to do a bit of messing around with.
So as you can see, I've got my work cut out for me. I think I just need to hit up a few craft stores and just play around with materials for a bit. Hopefully I'll have a finished product & maybe even a tutorial for you soon!
Today I'm linking up with Random Creative's Friday Finds.
