Learn the art to mesmerize people with flowers!

Flowers are one of the prettiest aspects of a wedding that add colors, fragrances, and glamour in a wedding ceremony and when it is about a bridal bouquet the sensation gets double. Cascading wedding bouquet extends the beauty of bridal flowers.

Cascading is a gorgeous floral trend for wedding flowers with a strong impact. This kind of bouquet is especially for those brides who are passionate about their bridal bouquet and want something to create a statement. This style of bridal bouquet can be extended with a waterfall or overflowing style of floral arrangements.

Why do you need to make your own bouquet?

Being a DIY bride is not about saving money, but you may have so many other reasons to create your own bridal bouquet:

  • Brides have their particular way of imagining their bridal bouquet that they cannot explain properly to a florist.
  • For destination weddings sometimes it is not possible to explain your dream bouquet to the florist there and you want to avoid disappointment which could actually spoil your big day.
  • Many times it is about showing your artistic sense, understanding of styles, and displaying their DIY-ABILITIES.

DIY Cascading Bridal Bouquet:

Ok, let’s accept that making a hand-tied bouquet doesn’t seem a difficult task to handle, but DIY your cascade bridal bouquet can surely be a disaster. With the right tools, it is possible to create your own cascade bouquet of fresh, silk, or sola wood blooms.

Get high-quality sola wood flowers:

The best way to improve the looks of your cascade bouquet is the selection of high-quality wood flowers. Careful selection of foliage can maximize the overall looks of your bouquet. Some silk foliage really does look fake. Clearly, the back is plastic and not quite the same color as the front. Don't use foliage of this nature. Choosing wood flowers is the best option for wedding blooms

  • Material A bouquet holder
  • A holder for the bouquet holder
  • Sola wood flowers and foliage
  • Ribbon
  • Wire cutters or secateurs

Follow these golden rules while working with wood flowers

  • It’s a fact that plastic stems are straight, but there are rarely straight natural roots. Take warm hands and bend the stems if you want your bouquet to look normal, maybe a little to the left, then a little to the right. Gentle bends will make your bouquet look much more like the real thing with your sola wood floral stems and flowers.
  • Be careful with one-flower, one-colored faux floral bouquets as they're going to be similar because the flowers are fake, and this is going to be really clear. But this is not the situation with sola wood flower bouquets.
  • Wood flowers are hand-made and require no complicated tools. This handmade appearance provides every single wooden bloom a unique customized look. Sola wood flowers are undoubtedly ‘true touch’ blooms. These look convincingly natural so try to use sola wood flowers instead of silk or any other type of faux blooms to make your bouquet look more convincing.
  • Consider painting your sola wood flowers and take a look at some genuine roses. You will find that within a bloom, within a bush, and even within a petal, the color also varies. You can replicate this by painting sola wood ivory flowers with different proportions of paint. It will provide your wood flowers a glamorous appearance.

How to craft your sola wood bouquet?

The entire process can be made much easier by using a bouquet holder or you can use a vase with a very narrow top or a wine bottle that also fits well. Placing the bouquet in the holder keeps it stable.

Step 1: Foliage arrangement

Start to work the foliage out. In order to create the shape of the bouquet, you can need it. To give you the cascade, you'll usually need long, trailing foliage or flowers, but just as in the picture at the top of this post, you can use ribbon trails or wire trails, or even bead trails; it's really up to you.

Step 2: Work in harmony with the bouquet holder

Consider the bouquet holder as a clock's face. There are numbers 1 to 5 to the right, with 6 at the bottom. 7 to 11 are going up on the left, and 12 are at the top on the right. Decide the total height of your bouquet and cut two pieces of foil of the same length. To define the height, cut one slightly shorter and one longer, which will define the length. Until you insert them, note to make the stems appear more natural if you are dealing with wood flowers.

Step 3: Start adding flowers and filler to the holder

At 3 and 9 o'clock, add both stems of the same size to the holder. Add at 12 o'clock the shorter stem, and at 6 o'clock the longer, trailing stem. To build a sort of frame for the essential flowers, add filler flowers between the foliage you've already used and add a bit more foliage.

Choose color options wisely

For your flowers, the colors you select are important. Spend a lot of your time on it. A lot of information about the colors of the flowers are published by most online wholesale floral stores. A whole-white or all-ivory scheme is preferred by many brides. Don't forget about foliage, if that's what appeals to you. Leaves are the natural backdrop for flowers; against your white dress, they will help your white flowers be seen.

Be sure to include some flowers that are naturally cascading where blooms occur along a stem's length. It is perfectly possible to use individual flowers to form a cascade, but it requires wiring and taping. Monochromatic bouquets are very common with brides, where the flowers are all one color but you can choose different colors, shapes, and textures.

If you're looking for an odd combination of colors, say yellow and black, adding something artificial in black color, such as wire, ribbon, or mega bead, is always more successful than looking for a black flower. This is particularly true where blue accents are required; there are very few blue flowers that are genuine.

Bring a Cascade look to your bouquet

Be sure to include some flowers that are naturally cascading where blooms occur along a stem's length. It is perfectly possible to use individual flowers (freesias are popular) to form a cascade, but it requires wiring and taping. Orchids are especially useful for cascades, choosing from dendrobiums, oncidium orchids, orchids of mokara or aranthera, all of which have several blooms along a single stem.

An alternative is to make the foliage cascade completely and add in some long-stalked flowers. Delphiniums are ideal for white, blue, and violet bouquets.
