Flower accessories for a wedding

I made pretty wrist corsages for three girls aged 8, 9 and 10. I wired the spray roses and gypsophila to a bracelet I made out of coloured aluminium wire. It's ideal for small wrists as it's malleable and can be manipulated to fit around the wrist securely.

For the adults, I made a thistle and heather buttonhole, a white carnation buttonhole, and a hair corsage made with lime green chrysanthemums, a small headed pink rose and purple statice. It's important with hair accessories that you use flowers that do not wilt quickly as a lot of body heat is lost through the head. The hair corsage was wired to a butterfly clip provided by the client.
