Black and white wedding themes present a classic, elegant impression. Pictured are several ideas for black & white bridal bouquets. Adding simple black accents like black beading, black ribbon, can create a fantastic look and not that hard to do. Hopefully I can inspire you with some of my own ideas when designing your own black and white bridal bouquet. You can find the Black beaded garland in the wedding section at Michaels Arts & Crafts. It was wonderful to use and can be used for many applications in bridal fashion. For the rose bouquet pictured I used 3 bushes of silk white roses. I cut them all down to single stems and put them together to make a bouquet making sure all the stems were cut at the same length. The next step would be to wrap the stems with black satin ribbon, (I always start at the bottom and work my way up). Making a small bow tie like bow with white ribbon I attached it to the top of the handle part. Because the handle is black, adding a row of crystal diamonds were added to give some sparkle and add some interest. You can find these diamond Sticker gems at (Michaels Arts & Crafts), they are flat and will not be uncomfortable as your holding on to your bouquet, they will stick right on the ribbon without having to stitch them on. You are now ready to cut off sections of the black beaded garland and hot glue them into the bouquet in between the roses. You can also make earings out of this garland or sew it on to the neck line of your dress to add black accents. I literally went crazy with this garland it’s great. Below are pictured two calla lily bouquets. the one to the left was made up of calla lilies surrounding roses to resemble a large flower. Green ting grass was painted black and added to the bottom of the bouquet as a spray. The second one to the right was made up of five calla lilies wrapped in white satin ribbon with a band of black satin ribbon including a black satin rose for an accent.
A black satin rose was attached to the white satin ribbon to make this very classy bouquet. (Featured on first page of post)
If you take an all white bouquet, using all of one kind of flower like roses, or white hydrangeas or even combining them together you set your base for creating your bouquet. Once you’ve accomplished that you are now ready to add your black accents. The bouquet shown below was made up of both white hydrangeas and white roses. Clipping off sections of one black floral stem of miniture black flowers I was able to incorporate them into the bouquet just enough to create a very cute chic bouquet, not to heavy with the black yet keeps the theme flowing and very impressionable.
