Learn how to wrap a bouquet in three ways with this simple wedding tutorial. After you watch this video you will be able to do a Formal Wrap, a Layered Wrap and a Romantic Bow.  This How To is perfect for any bride-to-be looking to make her own wedding bouquets.

 The Formal WrapHow To Wrap A Bouquet

Materials: 
Double Faced Satin Ribbon
Pearl Headed Pins

Step 1: Cut approximately two feet of ribbon from the spool.  

Step 2: Where the flowers meet the stems, pin the end of the ribbon into the stems.  Pushing the pins through the floral tape for support.

Step 3: Wrap the ribbon around the stems, completely covering the floral tape.

Step 4: Fold over the end of the ribbon and lay the neat end along the bottom of the wrapped stems.  Push the pins into a row along the end of the ribbon to secure. 

The Romantic Bow
How To Wrap A Bouquet

Materials: 
Silk Ribbon

Step 1: For a dramatic, loopy bow cut many feet of silk ribbon from the spool.

Step 2: Fold the ribbon in half and lay the bouquet stems in the center of the fold.

Step 3: Wrap the ribbon evenly around the stems, hiding the stemwrap.  Tie a knot and a beautiful bow in the center of the wrap.  Let the ribbon ends hang freely for a natural, romantic touch. 

The Layered WrapHow To Wrap A Bouquet

Step 1: Wrap the stems with the thicker of the ribbons in a same style as The Formal Wrap, only this time work from the bottom of the stems to the base of the flowers.  Secure the ribbon with a single pin or glue the end of the ribbon to the wrap for a cleaner look. 

Step 2: Cut two 2' pieces of the thinner ribbon.  Hold the ribbons together and fold them in half. Lay the bouquet stems in the center. 

Step 3: Pull the ends of the ribbons to the top of the bouquet and twist them around one-another several times. Pull tightly.

Step 4: Lay the twist flat on the stem wrap and pull the ribbons ends to the back of the stems.  Tie the ribbons together in a knot to secure and let the ribbons hang freely.
