A gorgeous bouquet adds a wow factor to the bride - enhancing the dress, shoes, jewelry, hair, makeup, and every other detail that she has chosen for her special day. Making a unique and dramatic garden-style bouquet isn't as difficult as one might think, and I decided to show you exactly that in this post! Note: Stand in front of a mirror when building a bouquet - it will allow you to see the bouquet from multiple angles without having to constantly stop and examine.
Flowers: pineapple lily, garden rose, parrot tulip, hellebore, lambs ear
Begin with the pineapple lilies, and then surround them with the tulips to create a drooping base for building upon.
Add the hellebore to the "top" (closest to you) of the bouquet. Don't worry, this is an asymmetrical bouquet and will look different from every angle.
Now, add the garden roses and make sure that the flowers are not placed too tightly next to each other so that all of the flowers are visible.
Add the lambs ear, and then tie it. Some florists use green floral tape, but I find that tying them with cotton string usually works better for me. You can secure the bouquet in any manner that works for you.
Trim the stems so that they are all the same length (but be careful not to trim too much).
There are many, many ways to wrap a bouquet, from ribbon to burlap, and everything in between. For this bouquet, I wanted a very simple wrap, and just used a lacy ribbon around the original tie point.
