Step 2: Begin adding flowers to this bundle, working in a circle around the bouquet.  Mix colors, styles and shapes as you work.  Keep similar flowers on opposite sides of the bouquet, and avoid putting two flowers of the same color next to each other.

Step 3: Because these flowers have a wire stem you can slightly bend them when you get toward the outside of the bouquet. Continue adding flowers to the bouquet until you like how it looks.

Step 4: When you are pleased with your arrangement, wrap the stems together with floral tape to secure.  At this time you may want to trim the wire stems so they are even.  Leave enough stem for you to hold the bouquet. Cover the tape with a decorative ribbon or bouquet wrap to finish.

You have now created your own bridal bouquet!  With silk flowers you can make your bouquet months before your wedding day and it will stay forever fresh. Place upright in a vase and cover to keep it from getting dusty.
