10. Fasten securely with push pins. We used pearl topped pins because we thought they looked really pretty. You need to be really careful at this step to make sure no pins come out the other side, that could make for a very messy wedding. Because of the wire underneath this step takes a little time to make sure you get the pins in correctly. I’ve found it to work best when I push them in slightly and then up or down. We used three pins on each bouquet to secure them really tightly.
Practice, practice, practice: No matter how simple your plan or how confident you might feel, plan to do at least one (preferably two) practice run. Purchase the flowers you've selected to construct one centerpiece and one bouquet and put them together. Keep track of how long it takes to prepare that one, then multiply the time by how many you'll need to make. This will give you a great idea of how much time you'll need to dedicate to the flowers when the big day arrives. You might find that you've bought more flowers than you need or that you need a fuller bow, requiring more ribbon. This is a better time to realize these things than on the wedding day.
Ultimately, there simply is no better flower for a garden wedding celebration than the tulip. Pick soft pastel shades to produce a springtime wedding, and after that integrate them with lots of downy plant, white linen and also adoring looks!

When in doubt, ask your florist for some insight. According to event planner Kristine Cholakian Cooke, owner of Simply Charming Socials, your florist should be able to give you some great alternatives that meet your expectations visually and are also more accessible for your date. "We always find that brides who are more open-minded going into initial floral meetings can truly learn about flowers and options they didn't know existed," says Cooke. "In the end, the results can be beautiful and unexpected."


For a much more casual event-such as a beach wedding-use sissies to make your guests really feel cheery and in the house. You can connect them with pretty bows that match the other shades in your wedding's design, and then mix them with lots of baby's breath.
As I’ve mentioned on here before Josh and I are planning this wedding on a seriously small budget. We’re both still in school and while we will be graduated by the time we get married neither one of us will have started our careers and we do not want to start out our lives together by going into debt for a wedding. That said, we still want a beautiful, fantastic day. I don’t think that a wedding has to cost a lot of money to look amazing. If you’re willing to take on some of the tasks yourself you can really save money. After getting quotes for flowers from local florists and realizing that my dream peony bouquet was not only not feasible but not possible in July, Josh and I decided to make our own flowers and use silk ones so that we wouldn’t have to worry about them being fragile or potentially dying before the ceremony.

Flowers for the fitting: Plan to make one of your practice bouquets for the day you'll have your wedding gown fitting. Take the bouquet with you and critically evaluate the size, shape, length of stems, colors, and the style of your dress. Get the bridesmaids together at the same time. Make a note of the changes required to make them perfect. If some of the flowers don't look right (such as daisies with a silk beaded gown), make note of the changes needed. Confirm size, shape, and colors, too.

Ivy is perfect for accessorizing and can be added to anything from floral headdresses to table centerpieces. The leaves of ivy are unique in their triangular shape. The leaves cascade down its branches, making it ideal for wrapping around wreaths and adding flow to floral baskets. Ivy has a longer lifespan than most types of greenery; it lasts for months or even years, so it works great for home decor during holiday months or celebrations.
