helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Our friends and sponsors from Blooms by the Box are back with another amazing tutorial for you all today! Hope you enjoy learning how to make a DIY

The common misconception that you cannot have elegance and budget flowers can be expelled from your mind! You really can have your cake and eat it too by purchasing wholesale flowers and doing your own wedding bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, and boutonnières.

This step-by-step video will help you put together your very own cascading bouquet. This does not require too many flowers and can certainly be made on a budget.

What You Need:

1. Floral Scissors
2. Floral Tape
3. 15 stems rose vendela
4. 3 stems cream spray roses
5. 3 stems hypericum
6. 3 stems dendrobian orchids
7. 2 stems aspidistra (greenery)
8. 3 stems isreali ruscus (greenery)
9. 3 stems bear grass (Greenery)
10. Ribbon and Corsage Pins (bouquet sleeve optional)

Keep in mind all these flowers can also be used to make other arrangements, bridesmaids’ bouquets, corsages, boutonnières and more. When I added all of these flowers up in quantities that would make you 8-10 arrangements I came out with a total of $256.80! That’s right, a florist may have quoted you in the thousands ($$$$$ ahhh) when you can actually spend less than $300.00 and make elegant wedding arrangements. Making your own inexpensive wedding flowers helps you in other areas of expenses. Use that money you saved to invite a couple extra people to the wedding or purchase flight tickets for your honeymoon! Really it is all up to you. If you feel overwhelmed with doing all your arrangements hire a florist to do just the centerpieces and you can still save a pretty buck by making your own bouquets and boutonnières!

This video shows you how to make the cascading part of the bouquet. We also have videos that show you How to Make a Wedding Bouquet. This way you can learn how to make your wedding arrangements in less than 30 minutes! We understand that in the wedding planning process your time is precious! Videos are a great resource for DIY budget brides. Especially when it comes to make a cascading bouquet!
