Step 1
This sweet, white bridal bouquet is the perfect accompaniment for a beautiful bride (that’s you!) as she walks down the aisle at her traditional wedding. Read below and we’ll show you how to build your own pretty posy, full of lovely peonies and roses, just like this one.   Project Note: As you build this bouquet, we suggest you hold it in one hand, then add flowers with the other. Make sure you have all your floral elements within reach as you begin! Step 1 To make your bouquet, begin with your bush of peonies and then add small bundles of roses. Arrange them into a round, symmetrical shape. TIP: Keep in mind that all of these floral elements have bendable stems. As you work, curve and angle the stems to give them the kind of bend or droop that you’d see in nature. Step 2 Once you’re happy with your arrangement, wrap floral wire tightly around the stems, close to the flowers, to hold your bouquet’s shape. Step 3 Next, use your floral cutters to trim the stems evenly, so that all of them are about 8" long (or the length you are comfortable holding in your hand). Step 4 Next, cover the wire with floral tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap it, to release its wax adhesive coating, which allows it to stick to itself. Step 5 Almost done! Finish the bouquet by wrapping over the floral tape and wire with Ivory ribbon. Use a dab or two of hot glue to hold the ribbon in place. Don’t trim the ribbon ends, though; allow long tails to drape at different lengths.
