Give your bridesmaids a fashionable floral accessory that will look fresh long after the wedding day: wrist corsages made with silk ribbon flowers. They can even be tied around a ponytail or worn as brooches. These corsages are easy to make: Tie elastic ribbon around your wrist in a big bow, then pin the bloom to the knot.
This sweet flower-girl accessory is a wonderful option for a youngster who may not be ready to sprinkle petals from a basket. We made gathers in eyelet trim, then coiled it (securing with a few stitches as we went) to create the layered "petals" of a lush bloom; a piece of eyelet trim secures it to her wrist.
Bride and groom, Allison and Jacob wanted to marry their love of dressing up with the tradition of exchanging corsages and boutonnieres by creating a playful and lasting take on an actual flower. Using custom-printed silk from Spoonflower, Etsy vendor BackYardPrims made fabric corsages for the women and boutonnieres for the men. When guests arrived at the ceremony, they selected their accessory from apothecary jars next to a calligraphed sign inviting guests to don a bit of whimsy.
Fawn over the flowers these real brides chose for their bundles.See the Blooms
