Step aside blush pink, today’s it’s all about this ultra violet wedding bouquet in honor of Pantone’s color of the year. I’ve enlisted some purple flower sweethearts such as anemones (always a fave), wisteria (hello!) and my personal love, allium, and together as a team, they formed the prettiest DIY bouquet if I say so myself. Best part? These don’t wilt! I’ve got the full bouquet recipe waiting for you below from Afloral:

I am no floral designer in any shape or form, but I found it was easier to start with the focal flowers first so starting from the center-ish and work my way to the edges. I started with the purple anemones, alternating the peach and pink flowers to soften the transition of colors. I then added the wisteria last on the side of the bouquet.
Once the bouquet is ready, I used a piece of shipping tape to hold it all in place — one of the awesome perks of silk flowers is how easy it is to handle the stems — think and sturdy, you can’t mess it up! Then I used a piece of white and gold striped ribbon over the tape.
Once the wedding is over and you don’t need a bouquet anymore, decorate your home with it! I used this zinc metal vase, and added a couple of coral peonies to fill up the arrangement.
