Custom Nightmare Before Christmas Wedding Pins & Bouquets

Recently, I was contacted for a special custom order for a wedding. The theme, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’. The color palette consisted of black, white, grey, and purple. I never realized these buttons even existed. How cool are they? They’re in the Disney line by Dress It Up button embellishments.

I started with boutonnieres for the groom and best man. Wire wrapped buttons and beads.

Next were the smaller bouquets of cut strips of double sided cardstock. Each strip of paper is punched by hand prior to shaping into flowers. I’ve never made these for a wedding before so it was an interesting experience tracking down paper in the appropriate colors.

The flowers were given a button center and arranged on floral wire stems.

Bouquet twinning!

The bridal bouquet was made with mulberry paper flowers. The bride requested Jack and Sally for the focal point in the center of the bouquet.

I love the look of everything, and most importantly the bride is happy.
