1) Make your bouquet in a vase first. This will make it much easier for you to manage and will allow you to step back and see how you’re liking it.
2) Choose a big bloom to make up the majority of your bouquet and then just a few smaller bits to bring some life and personality into the equation. Tree peonies, like the ones we used above, are definitely more expensive and harder to get but they are so amazing on their own that you don’t have to do much of anything else to them to make a beautiful bouquet. They will make your job SO much easier!
