My maids of honor and I decided we would do the bouquets (for 5 bridesmaids and myself), boutonnieres (for 5 groomsmen, groom, 3 ring bearers, pastor, 2 dads, 5 grandfathers) and the corsages (2 mothers, 4 grandmothers and one sister). Quite an undertaking, I tell you! After a couple hours of shopping and three nights working for five hours, we were done!

The lovely lady holding a bridesmaids' bouquet in the above photo is Savanna, a life-long friend.
The equally lovely lady 'hiding' behind my bouquet is my wonderful friend, Heather. It is hard to see, but I also added some stickels to the dots randomly in the large circle.
The ribbon running along the bottom of the pages (gold) and the ribbon used in the bow are leftovers from our bouquets. The purple is Offray brand 1/2 inch and the gold is Big Lots Holiday Gold Wired Ribbon. Fun Fact: The Easter Lillys in the bouquets were white and the gals colored them with fabric spray paint (they said it was fun~I wasn't there).
You can't have flowers without butterflies! The butterfly and the scalloped circles are from the Stamping Cricut Cartridge. The Cala Lily digi stamps (there are 3 total) are from Shell at Silly Shells Digital Creations (she has loads of free digis!)
The sentiment that worked so nicely with our creating of bouquets is from Ann at Sentimental Sundays. I colored it with pastels and added some stickles. Below you can see the lily again.
The sketch for this layout can be found at Creative Scrapbook Divas (I entered this in a challenge there). It really pushed me to be percise (all the photo sizes were designated), and to be creative in adding the details (hence the lilies, rather than the dots).
