Step 1: Collect Supplies. For my wedding bouquets I used fresh flowers, handmade velvet flowers, berry twigs, feather birds, feathers and vintage brooches. I also used some family heirloom ribbon and velvet ribbon that I found the first month we were dating! Choose accents that are personal to you!
Step 2: Start from the center and build the floral base of your bouquet. Work your way out by adding more and more flowers.
Step 3: Wrap the stems with floral tape. Use as much as you need to make it feel secure. The floral tape should go where ever you plan to wrap the ribbon. The ribbon will eventually hide it completely!
Step 4: Add accent piece such as feather birds or feathers.
Step 5: Wrap the base of your stems with a pretty ribbon. I also tied some lace on mine as an accent.
Ta-Da! Here's a finished bouquet.
