hi, I did my own flowers, mine and all my bridesmaids! (with my mom ) I love them and they came out beautiful! I bought them at Micheals crafts,

I had a hard time I went to the flower district in NYC and they had crap there! So when we came home my mother went to micheals and they also have nice walmart! If I can figure out how to post it, I will!

I too am doing silk flowers I bought mine on afloral.com, spent about $70 for about 75 flowers. Fast shipping, and they look great. I also ordered the wrong color accidentally (was totally my fault) and had no problems with returning/exchangeing as well.

I just checked the Hobby Lobby ad & it says 50% off floral. Not sure if this is just a local thing or at every Hobby Lobby though.

Thanks so much ladies! I think I'm going to stop there tonight when I get home from work! I know I have plenty of time but I just want to see what I can find! I figure the more I can get done now the less I need to stress later!

Oh and I finished my proto-type welcome bag last night. It came out smaller than I had planned so I'll have to adjust the pattern a bit! no problem though! Hopefully I can get a decent pic of it and post it tonight when I get home!

I've been e-mailing back and forth with Barbara from Affordable Elegance, and her bouquets look beautiful on her website. She's also an e-bay seller, and has a very high feedback! She'll custom design anything for you, and she's affordable!
