Making a cost-effective bridal bouquet

by webdev

January 18, 2011

When it comes to their big day, many couples may have made an effort to spare no expense. However, it may be best to cut some corners where possible - especially if that means that one can better personalize the wedding.

One way that brides can save is by getting affordable flowers and using them for a do-it-yourself bouquet. Hand-wrapped bundles of flowers are easy to make and will also be a stylish touch to the walk down the aisle. recommends that brides stock up on floral wire, tape, and ribbon and then find the appropriate tools for the task, such as scissors, wire cutters and a glue gun.

After stripping any bulky leaves and buds, one should start with one large, central flower - red roses can be especially suitable as a focal point - then start taping each flower. Layer different sections of flowers accordingly, until one has a beautiful and individual design.

Brides who don't feel inclined to create their own bouquet may instead opt for a spring flowers bouquet, which can be a lively and colorful decoration for anyone on their big day.
