Miss V and I will be getting married at the courthouse next week, and then having a small reception in November.
I didn't like the idea of fresh-cut flowers for my bouquet, so I put on my green, cheap thinking cap and decided recycled paper flowers were the way to go.
I cut the petals from the pages of an old dictionary, and then pieced the flowers together one petal at a time. I tried making some with glue and some without glue (fastening them with floral wire). While the with-glue flowers came out much better (and have less chance of falling apart), both options would work, if you want to give this a try.
The plan is to mix these with some burlap flowers my mom is sewing up for me - I can't wait to see my finished DIY bouquet!
