Did you manage to make the flowers or did you have the by them? Either way it's beautiful.
I bought a box of roses from GSA and colored them with petal dust. I did manage to make 5 of the roses my self, I'm super proud of them and managed to work them in on the cake. I'm really glad I didn't try to make all of them though, I don't think I could have managed to do so, I was out of town for a week and a half prior to the wedding and started prepping for the wedding on Wednesday afternoon. I know that may seem like plenty of time... but I was stressed.

I would agree. I almost quit this project due to comments such as "your going to make news" or "you'll end up on e-bay" ect. Thank goodness for my husband who was there to reassure me. I think it is one thing to offer realistic advice, but completely different to attack someone and belittle them. I knew I had the skills to do this, I wanted advice on what brand of this and that to buy and also advice on what support system to use. I am grateful to the ones who were kind and offered advice, and to all of the people who sent me private messages with help and words of encouragement. This forum has some talented people who were very generous with their time and information. Much of what I did was directly related to the people who helped me.
And again, thanks for all of the recent compliments! I'm relieved that this project is over... but anxiously awaiting a new (hopefully smaller) project!
EDIT - I'm also blow away by the amount of views and comments this topic has received!
