Add the focus flowers to the bouquet. In this bouquet it is the Dahlias.
Begin to add in the berries and filler flowers. This will give your bouquet texture, shape and color.
Fill in the bouquet with mid-size flower stems.
**Pro Tip** Use small, medium and large size stems to add interest to your design.
For a winter wedding bouquet that sparkles include glittery and metallic stems, like gold berries and pine cones.
