Making your own wedding corsage is a beautiful way to keep your costs down, you could have all of your bridesmaids wearing them on their wrists and your Moms wearing them pinned to their outfits.
If you use silk flowers for your corsage you will be able to make them before the wedding, if you are using fresh flowers then buy the best you can afford the day before and keep in the fridge until you are ready to create! To ensure the flowers are at their best when you come to use them make sure they have had enough water! Cut the end of the stems and place them in tepid water at least 3 hours before you are going to create with them.

To keep your corsages looking beautiful once they are made pop them into a plastic bag and put them in the fridge.
Corsages are now becoming more popular for brides to wear! They save you a fortune on a traditional wedding bouquet and they can be tied to your wrist so you don't damage your wedding dress. Another plus factor for wearing a corsage as a bride is that you don't have that awkward moment when you don't know what to do with your bouquet!
And your corsage doesn't have to be with lots of flowers, you could instead use just one big flower instead.
