For a long time I planned on carrying a very simple bouquet of orange calla lilies but have recently started reconsidering the idea. The flowers are out of season and not very environmental, which is important to me. My mother carried a bible when she married and being the lit geek that I am, I kind of like the idea of carrying a book (just not necessarily a bible).So then I thought, why not turn my book into a purse of sorts! If I carve out the middle of an old book, stick a flower on and ribbon around it, would that work as a bouquet?
I could even make one for my Maid of Honour and a corsage for the moen with a book theme to it (thinking of an old page of text behind a simple flower...) I like it, so I'm going to give it a try. Will update later with results.
