Need some ideas for a bright summer wedding? Here we bring you a bride's testimonial from our trusted wholesale wedding supplier.
Amelia ordered fresh flowers from Fifty Flowers and had fun putting together summer wedding bouquets with her friends and family, using a mix of roses, freesias and ranunculi in a simple posy style.
As she says:
"Arranging the flowers couldn't have been more fun! This was a planned activity with some of my close family and friends. We had a ball! We spent an afternoon doing this before dinner together."
Here's the result:
The fresh rose petals sprinkled down the aisle and on tables also doubled as confetti!
"The rose petals were lovely for the aisle and sprinkled on the tables. And after the wedding people are still talking! I still have comments from people about how beautiful the flowers were."
Make Your Own Bridal Bouquet
As daunting as it may sound to make your own bridal bouquet, it really is worth having a go when you can save up to 75% on the cost of your wedding flowers.
The key is to keep the bridal bouquet design simple - think POSY style as per Amelia's wedding flower pictures - and to practice beforehand.
You can practice using artifical silk flowers or just go and pick some roses or other flowers from a friend's garden to test your flower arranging skills. My best tip is to employ a friend or relative who knows a little about flower arranging or, better still, pop down to your local church and pick the brains of those lovely ladies who do the church flowers every Sunday!
