| Preserving a wedding bouquet
There are several different styles of Wedding bouquets to choose from. You may specify your color and kinds of flowers. All Wedding are made from silk flowers. Flowers can be scented for realism. I choose only high quality silks. All Wedding bouquets can be made larger or smaller.

Cascade Wedding Bouquet
Cascading Wedding Bouquets have been used for many years. The following instructions will show step by step inserting roses and lily's, but remember you can use these instructions and apply with other flowers.
Start by soaking your Wedding Holder in
water. Place in large vase with stuffing (paper towels) to hold bouquet in
place while working.
I have cut two of the ivy stems to make pieces to insert into the top and sides of this bouquet. Longer stems are used at the bottom.
Take roses and cut to size. Then insert in S shape into the bouquet holder. We have left sections to add lily stems.
Next step is to wire three of the roses. After wiring, you will then add ivy to each stem and wire together like a corsage.
This shows after wiring like corsage. Each flower is at different lengths as this is how you will create the cascading effect with flowers.
Each of these photos can be enlarged by clicking on the picture and you will need to click on this picture to tell what we are doing here. The bridle holder has two openings. You will take the end of your stair stepped roses from above and thread through the front of the holder. Bring tapped wire down and twist wires together.
We have cut the lily stems to length and placed the lily's in between the roses and filled small ivy in any holes that may not be covered by your flowers. We also have added ivy to the back of this arrangement to cover the mechanics.

You can have the wedding of your dreams
and you can have it at any location imaginable - when you carefully plan and select your wedding flowers and lighting. The beauty and fragrance of flowers in combination with the use of natural light, candle light and lighting fixtures sets or enhances your wedding theme. If you've always planned to be married in a romantic paradise, set the scene with soft lighting and warm or pastel shades of pink, lilac, creamy white, gold-tones in the lights, flowers, and ribbons.
If you have your heart set on a lively, party, wedding-celebration, use bright lighting, and brilliant splashes of golds, oranges, cobalt blues, hot pinks, purples and reds in your flowers and accessories.
If you can dream it, you and your florist can build it.
Planning for floral arrangements should begin several months in advance and you should have initial contact with your florist at least one month prior to your wedding.
If you require a large number of arrangements or elaborate designs, your florist may need to start preparation a full week before the wedding. Color-matched ribbons and unique flowers as well as other floral accessories can take time for the florist to special order - often a week (sometimes longer).
If you feel overwhelmed at your first visit, remember, flowers and arrangements are the florist's specialty.
Your florist will be able to offer suggestions and provide you with examples of his or her previous work with flowers, styles, color coordination, accessories and decorations.
When you visit your florist, take a picture of your dress, your bridesmaids' dresses and your groom's clothing. Also take swatches of fabrics including your gown (unless it's pure white) and any pictures from magazines of wedding bouquets, bridal bouquets or flowers that are appealing to you.
