Summer is here, it's time to embrace the beauty of nature and celebrate the season with a touch of whimsy and charm. This year, one trend that is set to capture the hearts of flower enthusiasts and event planners alike is the wildflower bouquet.
Bursting with vibrant colors, untamed textures, and a carefree spirit, these delightful bouquets bring a sense of natural allure to any occasion. From weddings to casual gatherings, wildflower bouquets are poised to become the go-to choice for those seeking a fresh and enchanting aesthetic. Join us as we show you just how perfect these wildflower bouquets are and how to make your very own.
To create this wildflower wedding bouquet look, we used our Wildflower Wedding DIY Combo Box. The pack contains seven set products- daisy and button feverfew, stock, thistle, veronica, craspedia and bupleurum greens. It also includes "grower's choice" bunches of other wildflower varieties, which are determined by season and farm availability.
Supplies You'll Need:
- 7 stems of craspedia billy balls
- 7 stems of honey bracelet greenery
- 3 stems of thistle
- 5 stems of button feverfew
- 3 stems of apricot stock
- 3 stems of wax flower
- 2 stems of veronica
- 3 stems of cornflower
- Floral tape
- Floral shears
- Yarn or ribbon
- Floral pins
1. Prep Your Wholesale Flowers
Start by preparing your blooms by trimming the ends of the stems and hydrating for at least 12 hours. Most of the contents of this pack are hardy and user-friendly, just the stock and feverfew require a little extra foliage removal to ensure that the blooms hydrate properly. If you receive any flowers in your “grower’s choice” bunches that you’re unfamiliar with, it’s a good idea to search for that product’s page on our website and check to see if there are any additional care tips mentioned.
2. Making the Wildflower Wedding Bouquet
Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of your tallest flowers. Then add a stem of stock on either side to balance out the size. Continue working around in a circle until you have a size you are comfortable with, then secure with floral tape so that this central bundle is secured and won’t slip around as you continue building your bouquet. Work around the outside of this “core” you’ve created, alternating between the other filler flowers (thistle, feverfew, veronica, etc.) to try and evenly space all of the colors throughout. Finish by securing with floral tape.
3. Add Finish Touches
Complete your wildflower wedding bouquet by wrapping with yarn, making sure to cover your floral tape but leaving the ends of the bouquet exposed so you can continue to hydrate your arrangement up until the main event! Cut your coordinating yarn (we chose a subtle green yarn so as not to compete with the multicolored, multi-textured bouquet) to your desired length and secure with floral pins. Use floral shears to cut stems to a uniform length.
This summer, let your floral arrangements embrace the untamed beauty of wildflowers. With their vibrant colors, natural allure, and eco-friendly appeal, wildflower bouquets are poised to be this year's floral trend. Whether you're planning a special event or simply want to add a touch of whimsy to your space, these bouquets offer a perfect blend of charm, versatility, and sustainability. So, go ahead and embrace the wild, and let your summer blossom with the enchanting beauty of wildflower bouquets!
