How to Make a Pink Wedding Bouquet

We have tutorial for you on how to make a pink wedding bouquet using our Blooms Classy Thinkin’ Pink Wildflower Pack! This pack is PERFECT for a romantic outdoor rustic wedding. Shades of pink can be substituted for flowers with different color options.


How gorgeous are these blooms?!


We started with a 3 stem triangular base using one stem of pink larkspur, white stock, and astillbe. The 3 stems with tightly wrapped with a 6 inch piece of stem wrap.


Then we added one stem of hot pink spray roses, hot pink matsumoto asters, and a pompon daisy.


This is our next layer with more additions of each of the bigger bloomed flowers. This will be the center of the bouquet.


Here is the bulk of the bouquet being wrapped. The good thing about wildflower bouquets is they can be formed into a round bouquet shape or they can have the scattered look with different fillers popping out. We did a combination of both shapes with this bouquet.


The bouquet was lined with the astillbe and then with the variegated pittosporum.


Cut the stems at the desired length. Remember- you can always cut them shorter, so start just by making them even.


We used some striped washi tape to cover the floratape and wrap our bouquet.


And there it is! The astillbe sticking up really adds to the look of this wildflower bouquet. Now you’ve learned how to make a pink wedding bouquet! With this wildflower pack you can make 5 of these bouquets or 10-12 medium sized centerpieces. All the guess work is taken out for you and we are here to help with any other questions you may have!

wildflower bouquet 2000

We’ve said it before and we will say it again, wildflowers are SO budget friendly! This tutorial on how to make a wildflower bouquet is your money saving trick for some gorgeous wedding flowers! A bouquet is the perfect floral accent for a boho wedding, a bright outdoor farm wedding, or anything in between.

So here we have some of our favorite novelty bunches! From left to right we have purple statice, orange safflower, purple limonium, billy balls, solidagobupleurum, blue cornflower, thistle, pink sweetheart roses, white sweetheart roses, pink dianthus, and pink astillbe.

We started of by trimming and pruning all the stems. If you’re thinking that it looks like a lot of stems there, you’re right! We did not use all of these stems for the bouquet. About 3 stems of each bunch were used.

Here is our first bunch. We used this as the center of our bouquet and wrapped it in a little bit of floratape stem wrap so we had a base that wasn’t falling apart.

The technique for making a wildflower bouquet is very simple and flexible. It’s just a matter of turning the bunch and adding more stems. Shape is less important in wildflower bouquets, each of the stems are usually poking out at different lengths. With all the different color blooms, make sure there is a nice balance of color in each section.

This is our second bunch after some more additions of bigger and brighter blooms. Another layer of floratape is not necessary, but can be added. The reason it’s not necessary is because you will probably end up pulling out some blooms or adjusting their positions.

how to make a wildflower bouquet - third bunch 1000

Above is our third bunch. Most of the big and bright blooms are added and working to make a triangular shape.

We used fillers and the bupleurum to stick out and line the edges of the bouquet. Then once they were in a good position, the bouquet was wrapped with floratape. For wrapping wildflower bouquets the stem wrap can be very narrow, instead of wrapping the majority of the stems, this allows the stems to stick out in different directions on the bottom.

It’s gorgeous AND so unbelievably inexpensive. One bunch of each of the blooms listed above could give you 4+ of these bouquets. Now that is a deal. Let us know if you have questions on how to make a wildflower bouquet!

How to Make a Boutonniere
Another tutorial to help you have some fun and save some money this prom and wedding season!
Here is a simple photo tutorial on how to make a boutonniere.

How to Make a Boutonniere 1

What you need:
1 flower
1 small piece of greenery
Floral scissors
Stem wrap
Wire (optional)
Corsage stem (optional)
Washi tape (optional)
Boutonniere pins

The Blooms DIY Corsage and Boutonniere Kit has all you need to make dozens of corsages and boutonnieres. That sounds like a fun money-saving pre-prom or pre-wedding prep party, if you ask us. Get the girls together with your kit, a few bunches of flowers, and make your own DIY corsages with matching bouts! How fun?!

In this tutorial on how to make a boutonniere, we used techniques and products to ensure a sturdy finished bout. The corsage stem and wire are not necessary, so if you will not be using either of those, do not cut the stem too short and ignore those steps and just wrap the stem at the length you have.

How to Make a Corsage
Have some fun and save some money this prom and wedding season!
Here is a simple photo tutorial on how to make a corsage for your wrist.

how to make a corsage 1

Here we used: 1 stem Rose Creme de la Creme, 1 stem peach Spray Rose, 1 stem peach Hypericum, and the Blooms DIY Corsage and Boutonniere Kit (includes wristlets, wire, pins, and stem wrap)

how to make a corsage 2

After pruning and cutting each stem, we wrapped the rose and spray roses with the stem wrap to have a more sturdy stem to work with.

We also took off two leaves from the rose stem to use as some extra greenery.

how to make a corsage 4

Now comes the fun. There is no formula to this part. It is just a matter of working with the different shapes of the flowers until you get the look you desire. We started by wrapping the rose and the hypericum together, with the hypericum sticking above the rose to make our piece taller.

Then we placed the spray roses in various directions, working around the shape of the rose so they all positioned in there nicely.

how to make a corsage 8

Because the spray roses were going in different directions, we wired around them around the wrapped rose with the hypericum.

Then we attached two of the leaves in opposite directions to hide some of the wire and tape. (This can be done with a floral adhesive and some kinds of hot glue)

how to make a corsage 10

The wristlet goes against the back of the wired piece.

The four prongs get bent down to form around the wired flower piece.

Now is when you can use ribbon to fill in the rest of the shape and cover a multitude of wrongs. Here we folded a piece of ribbon (about a yard long) multiple times and wired it around the wristlet. Other options are to pin the ribbon to the stems of flowers (that is what we did with the peach ribbon below), glue or tie the ribbon to the wristlet.

how to make a corsage 13

Cut the stems to an appropriate length.

Add the rest of your ribbon or decorative pieces and you are done!

We would recommend making these the morning of or evening prior to the event (prom, wedding, etc.) They can be temporarily stored in the fridge until they need to be worn. We have corsage boxes that are used to store and transport your lovely DIY pieces!
