Fresh Flower Wedding Bouquet

Adding the Outer Roses

I allowed quite a few roses for this bridal bouquet, so I'm going to lengthen some of my outer roses and give a little more shape to the sides.

I want to be sure I don't get carried away and overpower my bride.  Her size and height should always be a consideration when determining the final size of the bridal bouquet.

It's a good idea to keep a full length mirror close to your design area so you can pick up the bouquet occasionally and hold it at your waist to determine the correct size.

The side roses are longer in stem length than the roses in the middle of the design.

I'm going to tuck some in between the lily grass loops - but I don't want to take away from the effect of the grass.

Always step back and take a critical look to see where your next flower should be placed.
