DIY Bouquet: Sweet Southern Bouquet

written by Thalia Basulto April 3, 2018

Get inspired with this sweet and simple bridal bouquet featuring year-round flowers! This bouquet consists of lush hydrangeas, which added just the right amount of fullness, petite spray roses and clusters of white asters. A bouquet such as this would be perfect for a rustic-chic wedding. Whether you chose to have your celebration indoors or outdoors, this bouquet will look beautiful in both settings. Check out the step-by-step instructions below to recreate your own!


How-To Steps:

Step 1: Prepare

Prepare your blooms by trimming all stems upon arrival, removing any foliage that will fall below the water level, and hydrating for at least 12 hours in cool, clean water.

Step 2: Making the Bouquet

Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of focal flowers. In this case, we used the 3 Hydrangeas as the base. Then carefully weave the Spray Roses and Asters between the “sprays” of the Hydrangeas for an even distribution of flowers. You can also add a few stems of Spray Roses and Asters to the outside of the bouquet to round out the overall shape. Secure with floral tape.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

Finish the bouquet by wrapping your stems with ribbon and tie in a bow or decorative knot. Make sure to cover the floral tape but leave the ends of the bouquet exposed so you can continue to hydrate the flowers before you walk down the aisle! Cut ribbon to desired length, then use floral shears to cut stems to desired length.
