DIY Wedding Flowers

On Friday my mom and I worked on flowers for my brother's wedding in a few weeks.  We made the bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids' bouquets, the boutonnieres, and corsages.  We used the waxy artificial flowers from Hobby Lobby and I think they turned out beautiful, especially considering two amateurs put them together.  

Here is what we did for the bouquets!

Artificial flowers
Wire cutters that are actually sharp (our wire cutters were not sharp)
Florist tape
Florist wire

1.  Cut flowers to desired length with wire cutters that are actually sharp.  Arrange flowers together.
2.  Wrap wire around flowers at top and bottom of bouquet.  
3.  Wrap florist tape around the wire. (We learned this is an important step.)
4.  Wrap ribbon around bouquet.  Use the video found here.  It's a super easy technique!  When wrapping the ribbon I had my mom hold the bouquet while I wrapped.  It was much easier this way.

With the bridal bouquet we used satin ribbon and added some pearls between the ribbon.  I am not posting a picture of it, yet, because the bride wants it to be a surprise!  

the boutonnieres for the groom and his little guys...all we did was use a rose, a leaf, and little white sprigs and wrap with floral tape...super easy!
