Learn how to create a bridal bouquet, such as the one we’re featuring below, by following our step-by-step instructions!
Supplies You Will Need:
- 7 stems of mini variegated pittosporum
- 5 stems of soft pink Spray roses
- 5 stems of white with a hint of blush anemones
- 8 stems of pink ranunculus
- 3 stems of ivory white hydrangea
- 4 stems of blackberry malima scabiosa
- Floral Tape
- Floral Shears
1. Process Your Wholesale Flowers
First, prepare your blooms by trimming the ends of the stems and hydrating for at least 12 hours. Spray roses may need additional prep of removing thorns and any guard petals (the outer 3-5 petals of the rose), and you’ll want to remove some excess leaves from the hydrangeas.
2. Making the Bouquet
Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of your central flowers. In this case, we used one each of the hydrangeas, spray rose and anemones. Then, begin adding additional stems of flowers, working around in a circle until you have a size you are comfortable with. Because the spray roses and the variegated pittosporum feature “sprays” of flowers/greenery, you can nestle other flowers between them to help break up the blooms. Secure with floral tape when finished.
3. Adding the Finishing Touches
Finish the bouquet by wrapping with ribbon, making sure to cover the floral tape but leaving the ends of the bouquet exposed so you can continue to hydrate the flowers before you walk down the aisle! Secure ribbon with floral pins, then use floral shears to cut stems to an even length.
