Maggie asked me if we could try to make the bouquets for her wedding this April. So Saturday, she picked me up and we headed to a local market, my favorite place to buy flowers.

Choosing from the buckets of flowers, we got lucky with some pretty and inexpensive blooms that she liked. There were enough for one practice bouquet. $23.00.

Bundled them up, cinched them with a rubber band, trimmed the stems and got out my roll of burlap webbing. Makes a perfect stem wrap and goes with her overall theme. The whole thing took about 20 minutes. I know the selection will be different in April, but I'm sure I can do this, right? I would make them the day before for Maggie and her four bridesmaids. Any thoughts/advice/cautions are most welcome!
