DIY Rehearsal Bouquet

Super Simple DIY Rehearsal Bouquet - you can still have a bouquet at the rehearsal, while sticking to your wedding budget!

One aspect of a wedding that’s easy to overlook is the rehearsal. Yes, everyone knows to show up, and realizes that they are going to have to pay attention for just a moment. But, for the most part, those in attendance of a wedding rehearsal are mainly looking forward to the dinner. This isn’t wholly unreasonable – the rehearsal itself is mostly just for timing, and determining who stands where. Not the biggest deal.

Of course, if you’re the bride, or the maid of honor (or, the groom and best man), there are a few more responsibilities. The bouquet hand-off, for instance. When does this happen? How will you know? Many brides choose to have a rehearsal bouquet so that they can nail down the timing of the hand-offs with the maid of honor. At my best friend’s recent (gorgeous) wedding, we actually had a rehearsal bouquet, and it really did clear things up.

So, how do you avoid spending an arm and a leg on a bouquet that will only be used for about a half hour, and won’t even be photographed? Silk flowers! You may remember my previously-mentioned enthusiasm for DIY silk bouquets, and here’s another instance where they can be so useful.

 

We made the bouquet a little more complicated, by ordering a few of these pre-made ones and mixing them together (for fun, mostly). But, there are so many pre-made ones online, that it would be silly to buy actual flowers. Plus, I now have this beauty in a vase in my kitchen. It’s a fun reminder of this awesome weekend that won’t wilt.
