Whether you’re headed down the aisle yourself, or helping your bestie plan her big day, weddings offer the unique opportunity to flex those creative muscles, from the fashion right down to the flowers. If planning a wedding is on your to-do list, look no further, this week we’ll be sharing a few how-to’s to help you get to ‘I do’. And what better place to start than the bride’s bouquet?
While it may seem daunting, creating an eye-catching bouquet is easy as pie, requiring just a few materials, some fabulous flowers, and a little planning. If you’re taking charge of your wedding day blooms, be sure to have your order delivered 48 hours in advance, and carefully follow the instructions that accompany your flowers.
And if you’re feeling festive, why not plan a party around your wedding day bouquet? On the eve before your nuptials grab some champagne, a few sweet treats, and your wedding party, and invite them to whip up their own custom bouquet or boutonniere. Spending an evening surrounded by the ones you love, and creating something beautiful while you’re at it? We can’t think of a better way to usher in your big day!
DIY Bridal Bouquet
Flowers of your choice
Wide satin ribbon
Using your scissors, trip each stem to the desired length.
Once you’ve arranged your flowers, wrap the stems tightly using your florists tape.
Next, wrap the gathered stems tightly with the satin ribbon. You may want to double wrap, depending on the thickness of your ribbon.
Once the stems are wrapped, trim the ribbon at an angle, and secure using the straight pins.

This is great!! One of my best friends is getting married this year and I’ll definitely be showing her this. Thanks!
Great job! I will have to share this DIY with our budget brides! We have lots of tutorials too!
I love it. Simple and beautiful
I don’t remember who said, “Love is a many splendored thing,” but I’m sure the bouquet will win her heart:)!
It looks like they built their own bouquet, Its great flowers but principles are all wrong. Even a hand tied needs depth, and structure. IMO
Could you name the flowers you used in this tutorial? I am looking for ideas 🙂
Hi Allison! The fluffy white flowers are chrysanthemums, the rest are snapdragon, mini daisies and babies breath.
What flowers are used here? I think I see dahlias or chrysanthemums and baby’s breath. I would love to recreate this for my own wedding. Heelp!
hi Chelsea! You’re right, the big white flowers are chrysanthemums, the rest are snapdragon, mini daisies and babies breath.
My cousin is getting married and we were just talking about doing this!!! But our concern is how do we keep them fresh for the wedding day?!
