This white rose corsage is accented with variegated ivy and sheer ribbon. Don't feel like your roses have to be white, as you can substitute any color. A traditional favorite, this design features open roses in the center tapering down to smaller rose buds on each end.
To create this lovely corsage, you'll need the following fresh flowers and florist supplies:
I always start by urging my brides to read through the steps of processing wholesale flowers. Take the time to set up your work space ahead of time and be ready to open those flowers and treat them correctly immediately upon arrival. Caring for your flowers as a professional would is the assurance that your flowers will stay healthy and gorgeous for your wedding day!
Be sure to check out the step by step flower tutorials at the beginning Corsage Gallery. You can learn several different methods, including the traditional wire and tape and the newer, glued method that uses Oasis Floral Adhesive. You can find the links to both in the Quick Design Links down at the bottom of this page.
Always finish with a misting of a flower sealant such as Finishing Touch or Crowning Glory. If you can, store your cut flower arrangements (such as wrist and shoulder corsages) in your refrigerator, as they do not have a constant water source.
