We make an original wedding bouquet by our own hands
Preparation for the wedding beginsahead of time. The future bride thinks out all the elements of the festive decoration to the smallest detail, because this is one of the most significant days in her life. Perhaps the most carefully selected outfit, accessories and, of course, a bouquet, which is an integral part of its image. In its modern form, a bouquet of the bride appeared relatively recently, at the end of the XIX century. However, ancient wedding ceremonies were always accompanied by decoration of living plants and flowers, which symbolized the unity of man and nature, its fundamental "maternal" essence. In the refined 18th century, the language of flowers was invented, where it was possible to tell about the most intimate feelings and experiences with the help of color, form and plant variety. So, the tender pink rose speaks of happiness, the tea - about eternal love, the red one - about passion, the white one - about purity and purity, the orchid will tell about beauty, love and charm, and the peony - about the desire for a long and happy life in marriage, chamomile - about deep feelings and devotion.
When choosing a bouquet, it is necessary to take into account some factors,related to this accessory. Firstly, it is important that it is well suited to the side and successfully complemented the image, and secondly, it should be small and light, so that it is convenient, in keeping with tradition, to throw it over the head to unmarried friends, finally, an original, exclusive composition of flowers will adequately emphasize the style, charm and beauty of the bride.
You can not resort to expensive flower salons, butmake a wedding bouquet with their own hands, embodying in it their own ideas about beauty, happiness and celebration. On the eve of the wedding, order in the flower salon the flowers and leaves of ornamental plants necessary for the bouquet, and also in accordance with the idea, select the decor. This can be weaving from vines, dried cones, moss, peacock feathers, etc.
Consider two simple and original ways,how to make a bouquet of the bride. The first, more traditional, will consist of pink and green roses, wide elongated leaves of the aspidistra, twigs with berries (white or green), two rounded elements woven from a vine, a floristic mat and cord. Each rose is covered with aspidistra leaves, wrapping them with a loop so that the bouquet is more voluminous and more magnificent, collecting a part of the composition, inserting twigs with berries for greater decorativeness and two elements from the vine symmetrically on both sides. We add some more roses from the sides. Then along the edge of the bouquet we frame the leaves of the aspidistra, also bending them with a loop. A stapler is used to hold the loop. All the stems are pulled at the base with a thin rope, the ends of the stems are neatly aligned along a single line. Then we wrap them from the base of the bouquet to the edge with a floristic mat and fix it with a twisted ornamental cord, making a small bow and letting the ends go. Green leaves of a flower composition can be sprinkled with protective wax to make them more shiny. Wedding bouquet, collected by hand, ready. His options: instead of aspidistra leaves you can use ivy stems, which are very beautifully combined with roses. With short stems, draw a bouquet along the edge, and from long weave the cascade and release it from one edge. A bouquet made of peonies does not need additional green leaves, these flowers are very lush and voluminous in themselves. Join them in a rounded composition, align the stems and wind with a delicate satin ribbon or a piece of brocade.
Another way is to make a wedding bouquet yourHands in the form of a ball on a satin ribbon, which you can hang on your arm. Such an original composition is composed of any colors of close or contrasting color. The main thing is that the dimensions of the heads are approximately the same, which will help keep the even shape of the ball. So, from the floral sponge, cut out a small ball with a knife. At its center, we make a through hole and insert a loop from the satin ribbon, fixing it to the bottom of the ball with a knot. Further all is simple. Wedding bouquet of our own make up of multi-colored flower heads with cut short stems, inserting them tightly to each other along the entire circumference of the sponge. Gradually collect the flower ball. Heads of flowers can be combined with light air feathers, the main thing is not to overdo it with the decor.
Doing a wedding bouquet with your own hands, notuse cellophane, multi-colored wrapping paper - it will look cheap and vulgar. Just wrap the stems with satin, brocade or gentle silk and decorate with tape or cord. Large pretentious bouquets are also not in vogue now. Exquisite simplicity and tenderness - that's what is the basis of the stylistics of flower arrangement. Original and exclusive wedding bouquets, made by themselves, will certainly be able to complement the image of the bride, highlighting her personality and delicate taste.
