Hi! I am Margaret Flis from Gathered Stems in McLean, Virginia. I am a Master Floral Designer and I have been working in the flower business for over 15 years. Today I am going to show you how to make an easy wedding bouquet. You might want to review this tape a few times and try making this bouquet a few times before the day of your wedding. It takes a little bit of practice, but its very easy to do once you get the hang of it.
The tools that you will need are floral snips, a nice pair of floral shears, a knife, wire cutters, a roll of wax string, corsage tape or floral tape, pearl topped corsage pins and pearl topped boutonniere pins. So these are the tools that you are going to need to make your bouquet; next step will be choosing your flowers and preparing your flowers.
