Weddings

I  love weddings, but they are turning into the most expensive occasion ever! I'm wondering if that is why the tradition of throwing the bridal bouquet seems to be dying out? I mean, the flowers are so so expensive and beautiful that I am sure the bride wants to keep them! My tag portrays a bouquet being caught by a pair of hands, so someone is in luck!

Yes the flowerss are upside down, as they hurtle through the air into the waiting hands. I watercoloured some images of flowers and decoupaged them onto a lace printed tag. then I stamped the hands and drew the ribbbons at the top

I topped the tag with some lace ribbon and added crystals on white ribbon at the bottom. I chose pink as my wedding bouquet was made up of pink roses.
This theme has made you produce some stunning tags, I'm loving them all. Thank you for your kind comments, I'll be back after work to leave some for you! x

  2. Great take on the theme! Nowadays brides usually have a smaller bouquet to throw and keep the one they carry. My nine-year-old caught one at a wedding last fall. Hmm...

  9. Great idea - one aspect of weddings which is a lot of fun, but have heard where catching the bouquet resembled a contact sport!

  10. Such a pretty tag and a great idea. I didn't throw my bouquet as I wanted to place it on my grandpa's memorial stone. Carolyn xx
