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 Cascading Bouquet to carry on your big day!
Make your own cascading wedding bouquet
There is a common misconception that you cannot have elegance on a budget, but allow us to prove that line of thinking wrong. You really can have your cake and eat it too by purchasing wholesale flowers and making your own wedding bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, and boutonnières.
Below is a step-by-step video to help you put together your very own cascading bouquet. This does not require too many flowers and can certainly be made on a budget! Cascading bouquets make a statement, and are a great choice for a bride who wants to have a stunning wedding bouquet.
For this bouquet tutorial, we used a combination of roses, orchids, hypericum berries, and greenery!
✂️ Supplies You’ll Need:
🌹 Flowers Used in this Tutorial:
- 15 stems rose vendela
- 3 stems cream spray roses
- 3 stems hypericum
- 3 stems dendrobian orchids
- 2 stems aspidistra (greenery)
- 3 stems Israeli ruscus (greenery)
- 3 stems bear grass (Greenery)
Keep in mind all these flowers can also be used to make other arrangements, bridesmaids’ bouquets, corsages, boutonnières and more.
Total Cost to make 8-10 Bouquets: $256.80
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 when you can actually spend less than $300.00 and make elegant wedding arrangements.
Making your own wedding flower arrangements helps you in other areas of expenses. Use that money you saved to invite a couple of 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!

The great thing about cascading bouquets, is that they look perfectly undone. You can’t mess them up, because they are generally loose. The example in this video is very classic and elegant, but you can easily customize the design to suit your wedding style.
If you’re having a rustic bohemian wedding, consider using king proteas or peonies combined with sweet pea and chic cascading greenery. Seek out more cascading wedding bouquets for inspiration on Pinterest!
