Silk flowers, floral tape: Afloral.com
Pearl pins: Hobby Lobby
Silk Ribbon: Joann Fabric
Boutonniere flower: Michaels, one bunch of orchids that matched my gerbera daisy colors

This was super easy, and my total floral cost was under $50. My bouquet is not pictured because I am still trying to find a bouquet photo frame charm for my handle.

Those are awesome!! Please post pics of your bouquet after you get done! I am anxious to see what it looks like, I was trying to decide between making my own bouquets with real flowers or silk, and I think this made my mind up!! They look great!

I finished my bouquet tonight; I made a separate post in the DIY forum for it.
Thanks for the compliments! Silk flowers are the way to go. I could not even imagine paying so much for something that lasts a day or 2. And in the end, NO ONE will care whether your flowers were real or not :)

Hello!
I love you bouquets and I know you ordered from Afloral.com. I am wondering if you remember what stock # those flowers are?? I am also using gerbera daisies for my wedding and my accent color is pink. I love the pinks that you have choosen and I would like to order samples from Afloral to check them out myself. If you could help me out that would be great!
Thanks!
PS.
You did a great job!
