Update: I DIY'ed My Mom's Wedding Flowers with the Bridal Bouquet Builder App

Title: "Making Bouquets with Bridal Bouquet Builder" with a purple and gold watercolor texture background.

A boutonniere made of one small red rose, some greenery, two white daisies with brown middles, and some white beads.

I wrote a short post a few weeks ago about testing out the new version of Bridal Bouquet Builder on my mom's wedding flowers. Well, the big day is coming up in just a couple weeks, so my mom and I had to sit down and make the tough decisions about the bouquets, boutonnieres, and decorations.

Although the test version of BBB didn't have the exact flower types that my mom wanted in her bouquet, the models we made with the app informed what bloom sizes and colors we put where in the bouquets. Following Sandy's advice for designing wedding flowers, we started by designing the bridal bouquet (pictured below) and then moved to the bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnières. The wreath was the last to be put together since it wasn't a necessity, but rather just decoration. You can see more photos of these arrangements and the inspiration photos on our Pinterest.

These floral arrangements are made from Dollar Store flowers my mom has been collecting for the last few months. We had a limited supply of each flower, so we had to be careful to portion out each flower we wanted in the bouquets so we didn't run out.

There isn't much more to say about these arrangements, but I'd say test #1 of the app was a success! My mom is so impressed with what we were able to accomplish and loves how the bouquets turned out. Thanks for tuning in and feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments!
