Wildflowers are often associated with either the summertime or the countryside, which is why bouquets of these flowers frequently accompany weddings and events. With so many varieties of wildflowers available, a bright, colourful and lively bouquet can be made easily. Whether it is for a bride, a bridesmaid, to be placed in a vase for table decoration or given as a gift to someone special, a bouquet of wildflowers can brighten up a mood or atmosphere.
Familiarise yourself with the different types of wildflowers either by colour, by type of habitat, by region or by types. Wildflowers can be white, yellow, orange, pink, red, purple, blue or multicoloured. If you happen to come across wildflowers growing in a field, pick out several varieties and form them into a customised, handmade bouquet. Due to the numerous types of wildflowers at your disposal, you can easily make a bouquet by yourself. Follow a certain colour theme, such as reds and oranges, or pick wildflowers in a range of colours, such as blue, yellow, red and orange. Choose a few big flowers and some small flowers. Forming a handmade bouquet while on the side of the road allows you to choose desired flowers fresh from the ground. You can always pick a bunch of wildflowers randomly and decide on the bouquet later.
Choose popular varieties of wildflowers for bouquets. This way, these varieties of wildflowers will be easy to locate now and in the future, and will be recognised by many people. According to All Wedding Ideas, popular types of wildflowers include poppies, cornflowers, Queen Anne's lace, butterfly weed, tall ironweed, thimbleweed, Canada lily, Carolina spring beauty, New England Aster, everlasting pea, Indian blanket, tall bellflower, Turk's cap lily, European Columbine and true forget-me-not, among many other varieties.
Making a Bouquet
Select different varieties of wildflowers in different colours. Wild flower bouquets look natural when they are created from a vibrant, unique mix of colours. Think about the goal you want to achieve with this bouquet, whether it is to accentuate a wedding or simply decorate a house for Spring. Will it be held by a bride or bridesmaid or will it be in a vase? Do you want it small or large? Things to remember when forming a bouquet include the colour scheme, style (loose-tied or cascade) and the shape and size.
Start by laying different varieties of cleaned wildflowers on a flat surface. Select one or more varieties and start forming a bouquet in your hand. Don't bunch one type of wild flower together but rather spread it out so the bouquet looks natural and colourful. Cut the stems in the end depending on what length you want. Tie the ends together with a colourful ribbon or stick the bouquet into a water-filled vase.
