Wholesale Flowers Used:
The Bridal Bouquet contains 3 Protea, 15 Dahlias, and 20 Roses. The protea are pretty big, so are going to be a focal point of the bouquet. For a more structured style, you could use all three as the center of your bouquet and then fill in around them with the dahlias and roses, or you can place the protea in at random for a more free form, less structured style. Wrap your bouquet with pink and/or yellow ribbon and finish with a neat line of floral pins.
The 3 Bridesmaids’ Bouquets would each contain 1 Protea, 5-7 Dahlias, and 12-15 Roses. Use the protea as the center, then fill in with a mix of the dahlias and roses. Finish with ribbon and floral pins. You can choose how you want to wrap the bouquets, you could do the bridal and bridesmaids in both pink and yellow, or you could do your bridal bouquet in one color and the bridesmaids in another… It’s totally up to you!
For your groom, groomsmen, male parents, and VIP’s, you can make 8 boutonnieres. Each boutonniere is made up of 1 rose and you could even add some greenery from the protea for some extra flare.
For your female parents and VIP’s you can make 3 corsages or 3 mini bouquets, each containing 3 roses. Again, you could also add some of the greenery from the protea. Finish with ribbon. If you’re worried about making a corsage, there are some great tutorials online. 🙂
To finish up your bridal party, have your Flower Girl carry a single stem of Protea. Unique and totally cute! I love this idea of flower girls carrying a single stem. Especially if you are in a place that doesn’t allow rose petals!
Next up is a large arrangement that would be great for an entrance piece or a sign-in table. To create this piece, combine 3 Protea with 20-25 Roses. Simple yet Striking!
Last but certainly not least, we jazz up the party (aka reception), with 10 Centerpieces! As always, there are different ways to arrange your centerpieces, but I am loving this eclectic mix of containers, each highlighting a specific flower. To achieve this look, you would need 4 different vases for each table, and we could decorate up to 10 tables. Use a tall narrow vase, think bud vase, wine bottle, etc., to hold a single stem of Protea, then use a small vase, think of those little vases that hold a tea light, to hold a single dahlia head. To finish the look, you would need two more small to medium size vases. I like the 4×4 cubes. You could get two different sizes or shapes for more interest. In one vase, fill with 3 dahlias, and in the other, fill with 9 roses. If you prefer to have one large centerpiece at each table, then just combine the 1 Protea, 9 Roses, and 4 Dahlias.
There you have it! A whole wedding for less than $550! For more ideas and inspiration, check out the other Bouquet Inspirations by Violet, then head to FiftyFlowers to purchase your premium, fresh cut, wholesale flowers!
