Bouquet Handle Treatments
Bridesmaids carry bunches of snowberries in pink, their woody stems adorned with wide, mauve taffeta ribbon secured with pearl-headed pins.
Handkerchief Bouquet Wrap
Ribbon isn't the only way to dress a bouquet. A handkerchief embroidered with your wedding date makes a lovely and sentimental decoration.
A white rose bouquet is made casual with wild grasses and bamboos, along with clematis and green lady's mantle and a gingham ribbon.
To create blooms in a variety of textures, sizes, and shapes, use ribbons and rickrack in different widths and weaves. The folds of each flower are clustered around artificial stamens; stems are individually wrapped in floral tape before all are bundled together and bound in wide white grosgrain.
Long-stemmed tulips and calla lilies in shades of orange and tangerine need no more than a satin ribbon to bind them together.
Wide and narrow-striped grosgrain ribbons with a pinned-on vintage button tie the tailored mix.
An eyelet wrap provides a sweet finish to this bouquet.

An attractive initial is easily added to a ribbon-wrapped bouquet using humble map tacks. Find a letter style you like, and trace it onto tissue paper. Lay the tissue paper over the wrapped stems, and place the tacks along the outline. Carefully tear the tissue paper away, and you're done.
