Incorporate your favourite flowers into your big day with a gorgeous boutonniere, bouquet, and centrepiece. Here are some of our favourite DIY spring and summer wedding floral arrangements that are perfect for any theme.
Step 1: Secure your tulip and stem of white lilac together with some floral wire. Wrap the wire from beneath the blooms, working your way down for about an inch. This will ensure the tulip and lilac remain upright.
Step 2: Cover the wire with floral tape to even out the surface. Then trim the stems down to boutonniere size (roughly 2.5 inches long).
Step 3: Cover the floral tape with baker’s twine. An uneven coverage adds a great texture that suits a rustic or bohemian wedding perfectly.
Step 4: Secure the baker’s twine with a bridal pin.
The Final Result:
Look #2 – Light and Airy Wedding Bouquet
What You’ll Need:
Peach tulips and white lilac (we used 7 tulips and 3 stems of lilac)
Raw muslin ribbon
2 bridal pins
Step 1: Remove any excess, bulky leaves from your tulips and then bunch your blooms together. We aimed for a light bouquet, so we used 7 tulips.
Step 2: Behind your tulips, add your stems of lilac like a backing. Hold your stems tightly together as you work.
Step 3: Use floral wire to tie everything together—tie it high enough along the stems that everything is held in place.
Step 4: Cover the wire with floral tape to even out the surface. Then trim the stems down to the size you prefer (try and keep it in proportion with your body).
Step 5: Wrap your raw muslin ribbon around your bouquet stems and secure with bridal pins—one from the top of the wrap, and one from the bottom.
