Couture Shoot Prep: Crazy is as Crazy Does

Why yes, I WAS up until 1:30 hot-gluing props. Famous quote of the night: “It’s amazing what you can do with a hot glue gun. OWE!!!” Klutziness + hot instrument = burned fingertips. But I can’t NOT do it. I’m obsessed with making my own funky props for my creative shoots, and I am going to finish this nutty bouquet, no matter how many times I burn myself!

I know … in this pic of the bouquet in process it looks a little “craft project.” Don’t worry, I was watching Project Runway while making it, so I was sure to “make it work.”

Paper bouquets

A little sneaky peeky of the almost-finished product…

If you’d like to order a paper bouquet for your wedding, too bad. I swear I’ll never make one of these things again. Contact Unique Boutiques to place a special order from one of our fab artists.

And here’s what my office looks like while planning a shoot. There’s actually a lot more stuff in there. The chairs are covered with tulle that will soon become a skirt to finish off the bridal look.

Stay tuned for some behind the scene shots on Sunday night, and the final product next week! I’m super excited about this one!
