Rhinestone/Crystal Bouquet Stem Cover

Has anyone actually had a bouquet stem cover in rhinestones or crystals and if so, how much and was it worth it???  I love the look, but want to know if it is practical. Thanks!

I was offered one of these by the florist but after I held it in my hands I didn't like it. So even though it was included in the package I didn't use it. It's very uncomfortable to hold if it is really covered all the way around. Plus it was heavy. I've seen ones where the pearls or crystals are just accents and they seem much better. But you should try it out first at the florist to see if it bothers you when you're holding it.

I just met with my florist and decided to do a deep red bouquet with red roses, red calalilies and red peonies.... I love crystals but instead of having them on the stem Im having them glue swaroski crystals in the calalilies! It is going to look amazing!

Yeah the crystals in the bouquet look really nice. They can always do a special ribbon wrap or something on the stem if you want.

I like the satin covered stems with the jewel accents to!!!  But I'm covering my stems with the same material from my dress then covering that with my Rosary.


The  Bouquet stem covers are cool But if you can't find that there are tons of other alternatives.  They seem a bit much to me also.

I'm using satin to wrap the stems and then crystal-headed pins lined up the center.

I had the stems of my bouquet and all the bridesmaids bouquets covered with rhinestone wraps.  They were absolutely beautiful and I did not feel that they were heavy or uncomfortable to hold at all.  If you like the look and want some sparkle, go for it.  I don't recall the price, but I can probably find out from my florist.

The rhinestone wrap I used came in 1 1/2 inch sections.  The wholesale cost was about $12 per piece.  My bouquet used 5 of them.  Another cheap way to do this is to look in Claires and other jewelry stores for the rhinestone cuff/band bracelets.... those would work too and are probably the cheapest route.
