Brides often must think about many aspects of their special day. The dress, cake, food, matching color schemes, and the bouquet. It’s becoming more and more popular to craft your wedding bouquet. Tackling this task can be a bit overwhelming.
First, the decision between real or fake flowers need to be made. There are pros and cons to both. Real flowers give off floral scents and they photograph a little bit better. While real flowers die, the heads of the flowers can be pressed, and the petals can be dried to keep. Fake flowers can be kept for years and still look the same as they did on the day of the wedding. They don’t have scents and depending on the material, they can look overly shiny in photos.
Once a type of flower is chosen it would be time to move on to color schemes and flower types. You want to choose colors that match the wedding. Not every type of flower needs to be the same but, they need to be able to mesh without making the bouquet look “busy”. Textures and sizes need to be thought of before affixing the flower and greenery together.
Taking a ribbon or twine and wrapping it around the stems of the flowers a couple of times helps with the structure of the bouquet. The bouquet must stay together so that the flowers stay in place. Play around with the colors and flower types! Don’t be afraid to try out different floral arrangements. A bouquet is just an accessory. You are the star of the show!
