Here are the roses after prepping them:
After sitting for a day they opened up nicely, making the following:
So here's some things that will be different:
1. The roses will be a hot pink to match my color scheme (these where only available for the trial)
2. The ribbon around the vase will be at the bottom, not the top like pictured, this way the stems won't show.
3. We will use 15 roses for the actual centerpiece to make it more lush, this was done with only 10 roses (all that was available)
OKAY HONESTLY MOTOWNETS I NEED YOUR HELP..YAY OR NAY FOR DIY'ING MY FLOWERS
*Note: I'm not worried about not having enough time to do them as my mom's and bm's have agreed to help arrange them; btw I timed my trial and it took 10 mins to do the bouquet (it was actually harder to wrap the ribbon haha) and my DOC (day of coordinator) will set them all up at the reception.
