My wedding is about 35 days away and I’m planning on doing my own flowers through Sams as well. I looked at your post for a how-to and I feel more confident now. Also, I saw they types of stems you ordered; were the leaves in your bouquet just some that you left on the upper part of the flowers or did you order some to insert? I also have seen people recommending getting them in a day before you make them and letting them soak up some water, then after making the bouquets they refrigerated — did you do this or just leave them in vases? ALSO I was planning on buying my bridesmaids scarves like the purple ones you have in the pictures. Where did you get them? I wanted to order white ones online for them but didn’t know if I could trust the quality. It’s going to be a cold outdoor photoshoot! PLEASE tell me where you got them.. Thanks!
