How To Make A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet

How To Make A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet
Duh dum duh dum!

The flowers a bride holds while walking down the aisle are incredibly special and making them yourself (or assigning the task to a crafty loved one) can add a personal touch to your ceremony.

In honor of wedding season, I teamed up with Greta from Glasswing Floral to show you how to create a beautiful bridal bouquet. It’s easier than you may think  – just watch our video and follow the four simple steps.

DIY: How To Make A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet

1. SELECT YOUR FLOWERS: Use 2 types of large, 2 types of medium, 2 fillers & 1 green.

2. CLEAN THE STEMS: Cut away leaves.

3. BUILD BOUQUET: Start with the largest at the center, work around the center in a spiral direction. Alternate between sizes, colors and textures then finish with the greens. Bonus: add feathers, brooches or anything else special to you.

4. FASTEN: Tie the bouquet with a rubber band, then cut the stems (leaving about 2 fists long). Wrap base with floral tape, leaving approximately 1-2″ of stems exposed. Then wrap with ribbon and secure with pins.
