The bouquet must be done the day before the wedding or in the morning of the wedding day.
The stems of all flowers must be cleaned of excess greenery. Since there are many leaves left from the stems of Dusty Miller, I can also use them. Dusty Miller is a rather whimsical plant with respect to moisture and can wilt if it gets dehydrated, so I put a small piece of wet cotton wool at the base of the bunch of leaves and wrap everything first with wire and then with floral tape. I will do the same with pieces of hydrangea, since the flowers of panicle hydrangea are very large and it is not convenient and wasteful to use them entirely. Thus, using cotton wool and ribbon, I will prepare additional flowers for the bouquet and additionally save floral material.
When everything is ready, I start assembling. Garden style bouquet doesn’t have to be even and perfectly shaped. Light asymmetry is quite acceptable. At the beginning, I need to decide on the size of the bouquet, the larger the planned diameter, the lower it is necessary to start gripping, and vice versa, the smaller the final planned diameter, the higher the grip point should be placed. This is a simple floristic trick and perhaps the most common mistake a beginner makes. If you make the initial grip immediately high, then later it will be very difficult to arrange a bouquet of large diameter. You don’t need to grip the stems too tightly in your hand. I hold the hand of relaxation, otherwise it will be difficult to collect the bouquet. And the stems can be broken if the base is firmly squeezed. In the center, as a rule, following the rules of floral design , the largest and most attractive flowers are placed, this is called “focal point” and means that when people examine the composition, their gaze most of all lingers and focuses on these flowers. “Focal point” flowers do not have to be located in the very center; they can also be in a circle close to the center. Between the dahlias and for the filling effect, I use hydrangea. Hydrangea fills the space surprisingly well and as a pillow supports and cushions the entire composition. We must not forget about the color balance, evenly mixing flowers of different shades. When large flowers are in their places, I begin to arrange small zinnia flowers. A brighter pink shade of zinnia will complement the color scheme making the bouquet more attractive. When the hand fills up and the stems become difficult to hold together, I resort to using sticky floral tape. Lightly, just one or two turns will help keep the flower stems together and help me finish the bouquet. Using floral tape also easy to secure my flowers on the wire with a tape, because they do not have a stem as such and they can easily jump out or fell out of the bouquet. And to complete the composition around the circle, I fill in the remaining gaps with amaranth and ivy. These flowers will add volume, airiness and style to the finished composition. When the bouquet is assembled, I critically examine it, correct it from all sides, only after that I begin to tighten the flower stems with a ribbon, not earlier. If this is done when the bouquet is already assembled, the contraction does not significantly affect the final diameter of the bouquet, since the outermost flowers still remain at an angle. When the handle of the bouquet is pulled together all the stems and the wire stems are fixed, without cutting off the tape, I turn it out with the sticky side and wrap the handle so that the sticky part is up. I do this so that when I wrap the handle of the bouquet with a satin ribbon, the slippery ribbon will not move along the handle and will not peel off, will not slip at the most inopportune moment. I’ve seen this many times right at the wedding, so this is not a tricky trick to avoid this trouble. If the bouquet is prepared the day before the wedding, then the open stems of flowers can be dipped in water in a vase and placed in a refrigerator or cold room overnight.
