You can these beautiful spring flowers from gum paste which is a combination of egg whites, powdered sugar, tylose powder and shortening or you can buy a two pound container of ready made gum paste on Amazon. for about $15.

5 Wedding Veils Less than $35!

Originally I found these five wedding veils on Amazon for less than $35.  Some had great reviews and others not so much. As I update this post in the summer of 2017, all are still available except for the first. It's hard to believe you could buy a cathedral length veil with Swarovski crystal accents for less than twenty five dollars (third from top), but most of the brides who did so far, were extremely pleased with the quality of their purchase.

Memorial Wedding Bouquet Charm

I absolutely adore this memorial wedding bouquet charm. Thoughtful memorials to parents and grandparents almost always make me cry. A great way to honor the man or woman who applauded longer at the second most important day of your life. Not at your stand-up debut on Comedy Central or your guest appearance on "The View." I'm talking about the day you made a perfect pirouette in baggy black tights and a homemade pink tutu. Grandma was the first one there - your biggest fan. This elegant memorial bouquet charm sells for $25 and is available in antique copper as show below.

Tulip wedding bouquets - a simple but sweet bouquet of flowers so adored even Persian poets of long ago dreamed of a garden paradise with "the murmur of a cool stream / bird song, ripe fruit in plenty / bright multicoloured tulips and fragrant roses." Speaks to every beautiful thing I love about springtime and so do these tulips in shades of creamy white, bold red, dramatic purple and orange, and oh so charming cotton candy pink. Tulips are one of the most affordable wedding flowers at about $1.02 per stem in quantities of 100 (including assorted colors) available online at Sam's Club.
