Marie Huss’s talent and eye for color makes weddings far more than blissful.  She knows flowers very well, as she has done over 300 weddings! She knows that fresh flowers are needed to make the most breath taking weddings! Marie Huss trusted with her very specifically needed garden roses, also known as cottage roses.

The best news is that you can do this too! Cottage roses are full, fluffy and perfect for all types of wedding arrangements. You can put them in bouquets, table arrangements, or decorative pew arrangements!. They can be used to make an arrangement by themselves (like the first picture) or you can pair them will roses, chrysanthemums, peonies, and other full flowers (like the second picture)!

Okay brides to be, here is proof that anyone can be there own wedding florist. I have never made a floral arrangement in my life! I made these arrangement after a little prepping,  I watched videos from Blooms Workshop and read blogs to teach myself how to create wedding arrangements.  I documented the whole experience as proof to all the brides out there that are afraid to be their own florist. I used  my very own camera and set up in the office kitchen. You can check those videos out at to learn how I made the arrangements in this post. I think you will find that doing your own wedding flowers is fun, less expensive, and still edgy!

Here is how it turned out (for a step by step video on how to make these arrangements check out our YouTube Channel)

I order flowers and started putting together! Here is what you need and how to get started:

1. Peach Versilia Roses, Pink Spray Roses, Gysophilia Million Star, Hypericum Green and Carnations.

2. I also got Clear Lomey 2″ Diamante Pins,3″ sphere oasis floral foam, O’bowl container, floral foam block.

3. I cut the flowers and put them in water, let the flowers open up and hydrate overnight, picked off all of the guard petals on the roses, and started to arrange.
