Wedding Flower Bouquets

Wiring Xerographica Leaves

A xerographica (commonly referred to as Tillandsia air plants) have both interesting leaves and colors and look stunning in bridal bouquets.

I would insert a Gauge 24 or 26 florist wire in a "stitch" pattern and then carefully bend down on both sides.  

Fold the two sides together and carefully tape down, creating a "stem" to insert into the bouquet holder foam.

This florist seems to skip the wire and simply folds the leaf over

pinches it tightly 

and twirls the leave to create a "florist tape tail" that 

she inserts into the bouquet holder.  Every designer is different.  I would use wire and then tape.
