Searching for DIY, wildflower bouquet inspiration? Well, look no further! This wildflower wedding bouquet design is simple and carefree so if you’re a DIY’er, this look is highly attainable!
Most of the flowers we used are available year-round, except for the blue cornflowers which are available April-November. For a hint of blue, you could instead substitute the blue cornflowers with blue thistle. Blue thistle has a distinctive, spikey, snowflake-shaped bloom with a cone-like center. Be sure to check out the instructions below to learn how to DIY this wildflower bouquet!

1. Process and Hydrate Your Wholesale Flowers
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.
2. Making the Wildflower Wedding Bouquet
Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of larkspur, blue cornflowers, and lavender-blue scabiosa. Continue working around in a circle until you have a size you are comfortable with, then, secure with floral tape, so the central bundle is secure and won’t slip around as you continue building your DIY wildflower bouquet. Workaround the outside of this “core” you’ve created, alternating between the other filler flowers (Queen Anne’s lace, English lavender, mint, etc.) to try and evenly space all of the colors throughout.
3. Add the Finishing Touches
Once you’re happy with the shape and size of your bouquet, finish the arrangement by tying with ribbon, making sure to cover the floral tape, but leaving the ends of the bouquet exposed. Leaving the stems exposed will make it easier for the flowers to hydrate in water before you walk down the aisle! We chose to tie the ribbon in a simple knot and left the ends long and flowing. Use floral shears to cut stems to the desired length.
