Is a casual bouquet of wildflowers more your style than a fussy florist bouquet? Here are some tips and instructions for making your own! 

 

 

 

For our bouquet we used:

  • Clover
  • Chamomile
  • Fennel
  • Sweet woodruff 
  • Yarrow 
  • Buttercup
  • Dandelion

Instructions:

1. We gathered them early in the morning and let them sit in cool water for several hours. If you don't happen to have a wildflower meadow, nearby, many of these flowers and herbs can be ordered from your local florist or nursery.

2. Gather all the greens in your hand, add the larger flowers at the bottom and the delicate flowers like, chamomile, last. We used flowers that had just bloomed and some that were at the end of their lifespan. It makes the bouquet interesting and dramatic.

3. We took many of the leaves off the stems but left some on, to give it that wild, casual feel. Tie the bouquet with twine and then a ribbon of your choosing (we used vintage French ribbon).

Wildflowers can be very sensitive, so you may want to make two bouquets and keep one in a cooler or fridge and have your best friend grab you a fresh one if need be. Then again, a few wilted flowers adds to the charm and unpretentious feel of your day!
