Video: Late Summer Bridesmaid Bouquet

In this video you'll hear how Kelly approaches bridesmaid bouquets. Typically, the bridesmaid bouquet is a scaled back, smaller version of the bride’s more intricate bouquet. While often times the bridesmaid bouquet uses many of the same ingredients as the bridal bouquet, there are instances where the bridesmaids only utilize greenery so that the bride’s flowers pop even more. Ultimately, that decision is up to you - the designer!

For a loose, hand-tied bouquet, it is important that you maintain a loose and relaxed grip on the stems in your hand. Balance is key in designing a bouquet, so for every action you make, remember there must be an opposite and equal reaction. As you’re adding flowers, it’s good to continue spinning the bouquet from front to back so that neither side is neglected.
