It all started with a Christmas gift exchange, when Wendi Lee wanted to make her mom a unique, handmade gift. Now three years later, she's the owner of Louella Rose (named after her grandmother) where she creates an alternative floral experience for your wedding. Bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, boutonnieres — you name it, she can make it out of ties or scarves. "No water required, and they don't die," Wendi added. She notes that you can also provide vintage articles that used to belong to loved ones as a special tribute.
