Gather the necessary equipment
Once you have settled on the style you want, get the necessary equipment to help you through the process. You will need ribbons, floral tape, scissors, pins etc. You can always improvise with the items you have and you don’t necessarily need the ones mentioned here. The important thing is to get the items that can get the job done very well.
Shop around for thematic orchids
Pick the orchids you want depending on your wedding theme and personality. Ask for professional help if you must, it will help speed things along.
Handle with care
When you get the orchids you plan to use for the bouquet, there are a few things you will need to know about them. The first thing you need to know is how to handle them to prevent any damages. Orchids are very fragile and you need to be gentle and patient with them. You will also need to cut them using sharp shears so as not to break any. Manda Orchids will take you through the basics of caring for your orchids before the big day.
Have a trial test
After putting them together into a bouquet, you will need to do some sort of a trial test to ensure everything works out fine. This is important since you are not a professional and anything can go wrong. This is the time to correct any mistakes and the good thing is that you can redo the whole process if you do not like the end result.
