A white dendrobium orchid corsage is absolutely pure elegance. This version is bedecked with tiny, sparkling diamond accents and a sheer ribbon corsage. It can be worn on as a wrist corsage or on the wearer's left shoulder. Don't forget to use the unopened buds at the tip of the orchid for each end of the corsage.
For the same look, you'll need the following fresh flowers and florist supplies:
I always (again and again) tell every designer to start with correct processing techniques. It's important for someone working out of their home to take care upon the arrival of wholesale flowers, as you may not have the advantage of a professional florist cooler. Flower coolers are designed to put moisture INTO the air, while home refrigerators take moisture OUT of the air. So read through the step by step directions, use the recommended products and your flowers will stay fresh and beautiful up to and throughout your wedding day!
White dendrobium orchid petals are delicate, so wash your hands to remove skin oils and mist your fingers lightly with Finishing Touch to prevent bruising. If you need a more detailed tutorial, check out the beginning Corsage Galleries or follow the Quick Design Links at the bottom of this page.
Always end with misting of Finishing Touch or Crowning Glory, allow to dry and refrigerate if possible (especially your cut flower designs that have no water source).
