Wedding Flowers

These days there are so many options when it comes to picking out flowers for your wedding. Silk, fabric, paper, and even items like button bouquets or egg carton flowers are becoming popular. Of course, you can always go with the real deal too.

Ryan and I are pretty sure we'll use real flowers for the ceremony, but are looking at more cost-effective options for the reception and centerpieces. I love the idea of making our own centerpieces and flowers, it's just a matter of choosing which to make. Here are some of the options "we're" (I think Ryan's just seen the egg carton ones...) looking at:

  1. Egg carton flowers at the Intimate Wedding Blog

2. Oragami flowers at Style Me Pretty

3. Button flowers at Getting Married
What ones do you like the best? Any other good ideas?


  1. WOW!
    I really like your post you done a great jobs . Thanks for sharing valuable information.flowers

  2. Thanks, I'm glad you found the info helpful!

  3. How cool! I adore both the button and egg carton flowers!

  4. I love all of them but especially the origami ones. If it is more cost effective, I would TOTALLY go that route. Truthfully, I think flowers are the biggest waste of money as they die so fast. These will last a lot longer and the guests can even bring them home as a keepsake rather than them just getting pitched.

  5. leave it to you to find something crafty and awesome! i like the egg carton and origami ones!

  6. what are your colors? i like the first ones, i think they are the egg carton ones!

  7. Thanks for everyone's opinion, I need to do a test run and see which is the fastest and cutest. :)

  8. Wow, I love the button flowers. And I agree with Debbi, I think the guests would appreciate seeing something different and fun! And would love to have one as a keepsake.

    Great finds!

  9. Thanks Eve, I think I'm leaning towards the button ones myself...just need to see how complicated they are to put together!!

  10. New to your blog - but bookmarking it! I like all the options, so good luck choosing!

    Fabric is time consuming, but can be cheap if you go 2nd hand! Plus, definitely earth friendly.
