Beautiful Memories with Memory Flowers
Turn a piece of your wedding dress into a beautiful corsage or boutonniere, or include a rose bud made from a loved one’s neck tie in your wedding bouquet to make the memory of that loved one part of your special day.
We currently offer Petal Roses in single-stem flowers or in corsages and boutonnieres and gathered rosette corsages.
Memory Flowers are a special order item. If you want a memory flower item, please fill out the contact form below and I will contact you to let you know how to order.
Petal roses are made by individually cutting each petal. Although these are beautiful roses, they need a fabric that has some stiffness to it. Fabrics like Satin and Silk and many of the lining fabrics found in wedding dresses are great fabrics for these roses. Just about any Neck Tie will also work. Loose fabrics with lots of drape (like chiffon and organza) and stretchy fabrics (like t-shirt fabrics) do not work well. For those fabrics, look at our gathered rosette option below.
Rose Bud $35
A single rose bud that can be displayed in a bud vase or incorporated into another floral element. Each bud is hand cut and assembled with two leaves. They are approximately 11″ tall.
Full Rose in Bloom $55
A single rose in full bloom. Just like our rose buds, each rose is hand cut and assembled with two leaves. They are approximately 11″ tall.
Our petal rose boutonniere includes a couple of leaves and some wired pearl beads. A lovely way to have a little of Mom’s wedding dress at that special occasion or Grandpa’s neck tie for Dad to wear at the christening of a first child.
- Rose bud w/ two leaves and beads= $52
Let us put our imagination to work in making a full corsage from your heirloom fabric. Offered as a wrist corsage or a pin corsage, each piece is hand made with one full rose and one rose bud.
Gathered Rosette Corsage $75
Gathered rosettes have been used for generations by fashion designers. Each rosette is made by gathering and twisting strips of fabric to make the appearance of leaves. Gathered rosettes do best with thin, loose fabrics and stretchy fabrics like chiffon, organza and even t-shirt materials can be used. Different fabrics give a very different outcome. We try to use some of the bead work or lace from any wedding dress when making a corsage-. Neck ties aren’t really good for making a gathered rosette.

Bouquet Sash or wrap $35
A little something old to wrap around the bride’s flora bouquet. We can create a lovely bouquet sash from your wedding dress or any other heirloom that has special significance to the bride
Neck Ties: We can get up to four petal rose buds or two buds and one full petal rose from a standard neck tie. Neck ties don’t work well for gathered rosettes. Wedding dress: We can get 30-40 floral elements from a standard wedding dress depending on what we are making. When using wedding dresses, we try to incorporate any lace or bead work elements, even netting. Blouse or shirt: We can get about a dozen floral elements from a blouse or shirt. Scarf: We can get 3-6 floral elements from a satin or silk scarf.
