Bloom & Wild give their top three styles of DIY wedding table arrangements…
At Bloom & Wild we believe that giving and receiving flowers should be as elegant as the stems we deliver. Our flowers are individually wrapped and posted through the letterbox, allowing you to be your own florist and arrange them at home.
With wedding season coming up, we’ve received plenty of queries from brides who want to arrange their own blooms. It’s a great way to put your own special touch on the wedding and help out your budget (which you can put towards other items on your wedding wish list).
We’ve used our Adele bouquet to show you how to make three types of wedding table arrangements:
For a more modern look, we’ve added some additional greenery to The Adele. We’ve bought guelder rose (which adds a nice draping effect) and dill (for height and interest) from the local market and added these in a criss cross in our vase, ensuring that the heights vary. Then add the large roses and spray roses, crossing their stems and finally fill any gaps with delicate lisianthus.
This look is intended to be imperfect, so don’t worry about making any mistakes! This would suit a non-traditional venue or a city wedding.
Classic and Round
For the third option, we’ve kept it classic. Use a short glass vase with a wide mouth and begin by trimming the roses short and crossing their stems in the vase, ensuring that they show from every side. Do the same with the spray roses and alstroemeria. Fill any gaps with lisianthus and then add in greenbell on each side to soften the look.
This is perfect for the classic bride who wants a more traditional wedding. A round arrangement can be seen and enjoyed from all sides.
A Posy Party
This look couldn’t be simpler. Find small bottles and jars (you can source these in antique stores, flower markets or even online). In each bottle or jar place 3-4 stems in varying heights and then place 3-5 posies on each table.
The short height ensures that guests can see and talk to each other, and the mix of different jars and bottles makes for a more casual look, perfect for a country wedding.
We’d suggest ordering your blooms for delivery 2-3 days prior to your wedding day and placing them in water. This will allow the flowers to open and blooms just in time for the big day. Then you can make the arrangements the night before or morning of the day – be sure to use sharp shears and always remove any leaves that fall below the water line.
