From the photographers and floral designers, Sweet Root Village:

White and green is always a timeless look for a bridal bouquet. Such a neutral palette allows you to showcase texture and shape in so many different forms! We started our bouquet by trimming some flowy bits of wild smilax vine and flat fern to create a base for the flowers.

When you begin to place flowers in the bouquet, it is helpful to start with some of the big fluffy focal flowers like peonies, garden roses, and even spray roses! This will create a nice shape so you can add your more delicate blooms in such as ranunculus and fringe tulips.

After you bind the stems together, it’s important to give them a fresh cut with sharp pruners so they can start drinking water. Place the bouquet in fresh room-temperature water immediately after pruning the stems and keep the bouquet in a cool place out of direct sunlight until it’s time to walk down the aisle!
