A Step-by-Step Guide:

You take your biggest blooms and put them together to form your shape in the middle. Spiral your remaining blooms around it clockwise. Fill the space created between the blooms. You can adjust the flowers until you are 100% happy.

Make sure to not squash the blooms when arranging and remember that the bouquet should not be too bulky. A wedding bouquet should be able to be held in one hand and not be too heavy.

Tie the stems together with an elastic and secure the elastic with a tight knot. Cut a section of the ribbon you will be using to wrap around the stems. Sear the edge of the ribbon lightly with the lighter to make sure it looks neat and doesn’t unravel.

Use a safety pin to secure the ribbon to the bouquet. Wrap the stems tightly with the ribbon and cover the elastic completely with the ribbon to hide it. Make sure to take your time to ensure perfection.
