Wedding DIY: Get your bridal hands dirty

I decided to save hundreds of dollars and make my bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, sprays and button holes myself out of ribbon and glue.

It took me about six months to make but between working and planning the wedding it was quite therapeutic.

For my own bouquet I wrapped the stems in my mother's wedding veil from her wedding as my 'something old'.

I also bought cheap champagne flutes from The Warehouse and personalised them with gems and roses to match my wedding theme.
