One easy way to save big on your wedding day or any special occasion is to make your own bouquets. For my wedding day I order my flowers from Costco.com. The flowers arrived on time and in perfect shape. The morning of the wedding a brides maid and I arranged the bouquets. It came out perfect! Here are the steps and materials needed.
THINGS YOU’LL NEED
Floral shears, floral tape, bouquet pins, and the bouquet wrap of your choice (we used white ribbon). And your wedding flowers, of course
1. PREP FLOWERS:
Remove thorns, foliage, dead leaves
2. CHOOSE 2-4 FLOWERS TO START THE “BASE” OF YOUR BOUQUET
3. START BUILDING YOUR BOUQUET BY ADDING FLOWERS AROUND YOUR BASE FLOWERS
4. WRAP YOUR BOUQUET WITH FLORAL TAPE
5. WRAP BOUQUET TITLE WITH RIBBON
My bridesmaids bouquets were wrapped with ribbon only. On my bouquet I add a string of pearl and and accent peace. I also place floral diamond pins into the head of the roses to make it pop!
The finished product will look similar to this:
