Do It Yourself Wedding Flowers
Are You Looking to Learn to Make a Wedding Bouquet?

Helping brides with do it yourself wedding flowers has to be one of the main reasons I write this site! Learning to make a wedding bouquet, centerpiece and all my other diy wedding flowers was one of the highlights of my wedding planning. I love flowers and for me, learning a new skill and saving myself money at the same time was a real treat.

Looking back, I think I may have been a little obsessive about my flowers! They turned out great and I was so happy with them but the fact that the making of the flowers was a key feature in both my Father and Husband's speech after the meal tells you that they were more than aware of all the work that went into them!

I took classes in flowers, I read books and magazines and I browsed online to learn how to make my bouquet. Our house was full of homemade centerpieces for months! I have since found a great resource that I wish had been available to me at the time, it would have saved so much stress and guess work!

Create your own wedding flowers is a new book, written by a professional florist but aimed at brides to be just like you and me, who plan on working with flowers for the first time.

It contains step by step instructions and photographs to make three different styles of bouquet as well as boutonnieres and centerpieces. They include essential tips such as how to hold your bouquet and how to pin a boutonniere. The flowers she has chosen to feature are right on trend and include orchid boutonnieres and over arm calla lily wedding bouquets.

These are flowers you might not be able to afford if you had a florist arrange them for you but with these simple step by step instructions, it's now something you can do yourself!
