Your wedding theme represents the vibe, mood and experience that you want your wedding day to be. It could be anything from classic, boho, vintage, rustic, to modern, and even dark and romantic.
To make it easier for you, our dear brides-to-be, we have come up with unique color assortments that work well with any theme you have in mind. For this tutorial, we are using a combination of two of our favorite assortments, the Colors of the Wind and Sunday Morning.
Floral Supplies and Tools Needed
- Colors of the Wind Sola Wood Assortment
- Sunday Morning Sola Wood Assortment
- Dried Star Flowers
- Cutting Shear
- Glue Gun
- Floral Tape
- Floral Wire
- Bouquet Grass
- Burlap Twine
STEP 1: Stem the Sola Wood Flowers
Apply hot glue to the tip for the floral wire then carefully push into the base of the flower. You may also squeeze a dab of glue to the underside of the bloom then poke through using wire. Let the glue dry and make sure the flower is firmly attached to the stem.
Stem all the needed flowers before starting to make the arrangement. You may keep excess stemmed flowers for future use.

STEP 2: Start Arranging the Bouquet
Pick three or four blooms to form the base of your bouquet and add stems to this focal point.
Add more flowers around the original blooms.
Turn the bouquet as you add stems to it so you build one layer at a time from the center out. Continue adding more layers until you are happy with the size and look of your bridal bouquet.
Wrap with floral tape as you go for added support and stability.
STEP 4: Insert Accents and Fillers
Insert dried star flowers to fill in the spaces in the arrangement.
Insert lavender sprigs and cover all visible open spots in the bouquet.
Once you have all the flowers in place and you have achieved a desirable size, tightly wrap the stems several times with floral tape to secure the bouquet.
STEP 5: Finish the Handle with Bouquet Grass
Surround the handle with bouquet grass for a more natural look. Secure it with floral tape.
STEP 6: Cut the excess stems
Trim any unruly ends with a cutter to make the bottom even. The handle should be comfortable to carry, not too long and not too short either.
STEP 7: Wrap the Handle with Burlap Twine
Apply glue at the topmost part of the floral tape. Stick the burlap twine then twist and wrap until the handle is fully covered. Secure the ends with hot glue.
