We went to one of my good friends weddings on Saturday. It was the last wedding before our own in November and all the more poignant for it. When we danced, we imagined dancing at our own wedding and when the bride walked into the church, I imagined all the nerves and excitement of walking up the aisle.

At the end of the night the bride came up to me and gave me her bouquet as I was the next to get married. I was very touched.

This wedding featured on Martha Stewart Weddings has many adorable details including this butterfly bouquet which the bride made from silk and feather creatures secured on thin wires so that they float and flutter realistically.

If you want to create your own here’s some instructions:

Tools and Materials
Assorted floral butterflies
White floral-wire stems
White floral tape

Butterfly Bouquet How-To
Floral butterflies come on wires, making this project super simple. Tape the wires close to the butterfly bodies with white floral tape to cover them and create a uniform appearance. Then gather together a few butterflies and tape their wires together using white floral tape. Stagger the spacing, or tape the wires only at the ends so you’ll have lots of wire to bend.

If the wires are short, or if you want the butterflies to be able to be bent farther apart, attach individual butterflies or clusters of butterflies to floral-wire stems (lay the wire from a butterfly alongside a wire stem with a 1- or 2-inch overlap, and tape the two together). Make several clusters, and tape them together to create the desired shape. Finish the stem by wrapping it in ribbon.

Walking into a accessories shop to buy something for a friends wedding I found a flower headband thats exactly the colour we’ve been trying to describe! So I bought it so when people ask what about our wedding colours instead of ummm-ing and er-ing I can just show them the flower

Its the colour we plan to use as a highlight in bridesmaids flowers and table centrepieces.
