A lovely bride just held this while walking down the aisle this afternoon.
boutonnieres and bridal bouquet crocheted. I even think it's the first time a bride will be holding a full crocheted bouquet in the Philippines :p I'm glad they liked it. Good thing about this bouquet is, it won't wither!
The idea of crocheting a bridal bouquet was unfathomable for me. I mean, it's not just some crocheted bouquet. It's the bride's. It's that bouquet she will be holding when everyone's attention is focused on her while walking down the aisle.
I was asked to use coral-toned colors - in line with the wedding's theme. I also added pops of other colors to make it more "alive." I didn't shy away from crocheting different kinds of flowers. I think the variety added character to the bouquet.
I couldn't make it to the wedding, unfortunately. I'm really looking forward to the official wedding pictures!
Now I'm wondering what my next crochet challenge will be :p I think by now I can say, I'm up for anything!
