Five Rules for Choosing Your Premade Wedding Bouquet

1. Order Samples

If I’m being honest, our products are actually pretty true to the way they’re pictured online. But sometimes, a photo might not clearly represent how the wedding bouquet looks in person. That is why we always, ALWAYS recommend ordering one or two samples before you place your entire order.

2. Know Your Ideal Size

Do you want a lush, full wedding bouquet or a simple, understated bouquet? Once you get your samples, bunch  2-3 bouquets together so you know how big you want your bridal bouquet to be. Sometimes, our brides will use three premade bouquets for their wedding bouquet and one for the bridesmaid bouquets, but it’s all up to you and your preference. Once you’ve figured this out, make sure you order accordingly.

3. Finish with Decorative Bouquet Wrap

If you’re ordering one of our premade wedding bouquets, chances are it is held together with green wrap or wire, but it doesn’t come with decorative ribbon around it. (Some of them do, but generally speaking, most do not). In your sample order, make sure you also pick out one or two different decorative ribbons to use for bouquet wrap. Test out each one, and when you’ve picked which one you like best, you can feel free to return the one you didn’t use, as long as it wasn’t cut.

The black and white striped ribbon is my absolute favorite, so simple and trendy :)

4. Don’t Forget Your Flower Girl

Sometimes our brides get so caught up in ordering bouquets for themselves and the bridesmaids, they forget to order something small for the flower girl. If she’s throwing petals, don’t forget to add some of our colorful rose petals to your cart. If she isn’t throwing petals, we recommend ordering a kissing ball for her to carry down the aisle.

These bright pink petals are so cheery, perfect for a summer wedding.

5. Fluff It

Finally, don’t forget ladies, these are faux flowers. When you pull them out of the box, there is a chance that they might be slightly bent, and will need some love. Position the flower head outward, and pull the stems a bit more towards you. This is what we call “fluffing” :)

Just a fair warning, it does require a hefty amount of wedding flowers, but let me tell you, it’s totally worth it!

This bold summer wedding bouquet is perfect for a casual backyard wedding.

How to Make an Orange Rose Succulent Bouquet

If you haven’t been able to guess by now, I love featuring wedding bouquets that are a little bit out of the ordinary. I am obsessed with bridal bouquets that go above and beyond the flower call of duty. Don’t get me wrong, a simple pink peony bouquet is gorgeous, but so not my style.

So this week, I wanted to show you ladies how to recreate this lovely wedding bouquet I found on WeddingChicks.com.

PURCHASE ALL THE STEMS YOU NEED HERE

With just a handful of affordable stems, you can recreate a similar look for half the price.

First, take five orange roses and three yellow billy buttons, and gather them together in a small bunch.

Next, take two stems of lamb’s ear, use it to surround the roses and billy buttons.

The greenery should serve as an accent.

After that, take three succulents, and position them in a triangular fashion around the wedding bouquet.

Take your lily of the valley, and as you did with the greenery, use it to accent the outside of the bouquet. We recommend using three to four stems.

Next, take three to four billy buttons, and scatter them around the outside of your bouquet.

Finally, finish the bouquet with a couple orange dahlias, two to three roses, and two more lamb’s ear.

Keep in mind this is just a variation, and you can add more or less, depending on how full you want your wedding bouquet.

How to Make a Rustic Wedding Bouquet

When  I hear the phrase “rustic wedding bouquet” I think of a green and cream wildflower bouquet – definitely not my style. I like bold colors, modern accents, and new takes on old ideas. So, I did some research on Pinterest to see if I could find something that identified as “rustic”, but still had some fresh, modern flavor.

Let me tell you, in two minutes flat, I found the PERFECT wedding bouquet from Knotsvilla.com. This bridal bouquet is the perfect pop of color, mixed with new wedding trends, while still maintaining the traditional rustic flair.
