You guys took to the Flickr Pool this week armed with photos of your bouquets and I'm LOVING it. So we're showing a few of those, plus some bonus socks, engagement rings, and save-the-dates. The lovely paper flower bouquet above from Andrea took "all of Firefly and a few replays of Grey's Anatomy." Well worth the effort!

  1. I'm having a dilemma with my paper flowers. What do I do about the empty spaces between the flowers? I have 7 large paper flowers arranged together…but because of their size there are gaps around the flowers that let you see in to the green "stems". Should I just leave it plain, add some kind of filler (if so, what?) or put something inside the bouquet to disquise the stems a little? Thoughts?

    • You can always make smaller flowers to fill in those gaps… or grab live fillers like baby's breath or fern fronds at Trader Joe's or Costco on the day of (or day before).

  2. Does Andrea have a tutorial or source for that AHH-mazing bouquet? Pretty please??? Love it and want to recreate it!

  3. I feel it's worth sharing this shot that shows all the bridesminions (sans socks) because of reasons*.

    *And by reasons I mean, making Ariel squee over the tattoos…

  4. Yay, you featured us again! (I'm Emerald Bride) Thanks so much! Those knitted bouquets really were a hit. 😀 And I have to say a huge thank you to Alex (of the Subterranean Musical Edinburgh wedding fame) for being one of my knitty helpers!
