Felt Flowers

My FH has never been super thrilled about the idea of a floral boutonniere, especially since I've been planning on using gerbera daisies for pretty much all of our flowers, and so I was looking up pictures of button boutonnieres. While googling for ideas, I ran across pictures of felt bouquets, corsages and bouts. I think I might be in love! Has anyone else thought about doing bouquets or other traditionally floral elements out of things other than flowers? What are your opinions of non-traditional flowers? Tacky or fun?
This is where I got the idea, but I would make my own. Time consuming, but I think it will be unique, fun and save some money!

Hello! Your bouquets are part of the atmosphere of your wedding, and since you are thinking of using gerbera daisies as your flowers, it sounds like you want a fun, bright, happy wedding. This being said, you can go with quirky elements for your bouquets and boutonnieres. I've seen in a magazine that an eco-chic bride chose a bouquet of butterflies, just butterflies that you can buy at a craft shop. It was pretty cool. Don't feel the need to do just flowers or just buttons. Mix it up. Gerberas will be great with buttons! Martha Stewart did a spread of paper flowers mixed in with real ones at a reception. If your FH doesn't want flowers at all for his boutonniere, you can use herbs and greenery instead... along with the other fun things you've found! Good luck!

I ♥ Princess Laserton! LOL I think that making your own felt bouquets and boutonnieres is a great idea. I don't think that it's tacky at all.

At first I was really against them, but I love them now! I hope my guests don't think they're tacky becase I love that they are handmade and will last forever (or at least a long time).
This is what I'm using in my wedding... http://www.etsy.com/listing/35161734/sophistication-bridal-bouquet
So I say go for it!
