Planning a wedding takes a lot of budgeting. This much for the hall, the photographer...and so on. The florist can take up a huge chunk of a wedding budget if you're going with centerpieces, bouquets, flowers for the ceremony and for the guys. Although they're beautiful, they only last so long. I went a little less traditional for my wedding and opted for a button bouquet. This meant searching for some pictures and some trial and error arts and crafts time! I realized that they are actually simple to make, very easy to customize to your colour and style, and last forever. It was also pretty inexpensive to make by purchasing a lot of buttons on ebay. The only downside is you may want to get a cheap toss bouquet for the ceremony because they are a bit heavy and I don't think they'd do well being thrown!

I am a lover of all things vintage and restorable! My love of vintage started with playing dress up as a little girl. Over the years I learned dressmaking, couture sewing, pattern making and even did upholstery work restoring classic cars. I live my dream of restoring vintage clothing and creating one of a kind dresses made for the offbeat crowd!
