Vintage Glam Satin Fabric Wedding Bouquets

Today I delivered this order for satin fabric wedding bouquets for a Great Gatsby / Vintage Glam themed wedding next year! 

This was a challenging custom order, as I had never worked with the satin flowers like this and had to learn a new skill. It took several samples and trial and error, till we created the desired look of the bouquets. Each petal is cut out by hand, treated to prevent fraying and shape the petals, then sewn together. This process took an average of 10 minutes per flower, before the bouquet assembly ever started. At one time, I counted up the flowers I still needed to make and it was about 16 hours of work, before I could begin to create the bridesmaid bouquets. It was a labor intensive order, but I'm so glad that I could learn a new technique and will be able to offer this style to other brides in the future! 

The bridesmaid bouquets had wine, champagne, ivory, and rose gold satin flowers, with lace tucked among the flowers. Rhinestone and pearl clusters accented the center of the flowers. The handle of the bouquet holder was wrapped in wine satin and accented with gold rhinestone style ribbon.

 The boutonnieres were made from smaller satin flowers, a tuft of lace, and rhinestones. The groom will have a white flower, the groomsmen and ushers will have wine, while the minister, father of bride and father of groom will have a champagne boutonniere.

I delivered the bridal bouquet before Thanksgiving, so the bride would have it for her bridal portraits. That is one benefit for the fabric bouquets - the same bouquet can be used for bridal portraits and for the actual wedding. The pictures don't do the bridal bouquet justice!

The mother of the bride provided the fabric and some of the jewels for the bouquets,  (therefore exact reproductions are not be available, as some of the colors of fabric were very hard to find.) I will be happy to offer this style of bouquet to future brides! I am building up my inventory of satin fabric and will be creating some new bouquets for my shop in the coming weeks. 

I'm looking forward to helping create your dream wedding!
