The rustic wedding look is not hard to achieve. Here are a couple guidelines to follow so that you can recreate rustic DIY Wedding Flower looks!

1. Use Burlap. Burlap screams rustic, it is reminiscent of the outdoors and adds a perfect neutral background that make the bright wildflowers really pop. Burlap is rustic and sweet in all wedding details. Use burlap string around the boutonnieres and bouquets to tie the theme in with the rest of the wedding.

2. Use a combination of vases such as mason jars, bud vases, and wooden vases. Different sizes and shapes create a vintage texture. Rustic wedding looks really focus on the beauty of nature. This means focusing different sizes and texture that make your look seem just as unpredictable as nature.

 3. Always include Daisies or monte casino asters (the mini spray daisies)! They really do make the wildflower look. The little yellow center and soft petals can be found gracing beautiful natural fields. This specific flower triggers a wild naturalistic memory for anyone who has experienced nature at its finest.

4. Use lots of fillers and greens, Solidago and Queen Anne’s Lace especially. Fillers and greens are very important because they help you stay in budget and contribute the the rustic and natural theme.

5. Mix roses in with wildflowers! They formalize the wildflowers for a wedding and also soften the look. Peaches, pinks, yellow, and white roses are the most rustic looking.

Some flowers have hollow stems or are not as sturdy as we would like them to be. In order to give them the stamina to hold up in a bouquet these flowers should be wired.  Some flowers have a heavy head and need a strong stem, some have hollow stems that curl that need to be straight, some just need support, and some need a longer stem. Wiring flowers is a simple process that will makes a big difference.

Some flowers that need to be wired in bouquets:
1. Lisianthus (ex: flower in this post)
2. Ranunculus: They have hollow stems and tend to bend over
3. Orchids: Orchids are removed from a stem with many blooms, they have an extremely short stem and need to be lengthened.

You will need: A flower that needs to be wired, 1 strand floral wire, and floral tape.

Put the wire horizontally through the top of the flower stem

Pull the wire through so there is equal wire on each side of the flower. Fold the wire down the sides of the stem.

Wrap floral tape around the very top of the stem and continue all the way to the bottom.

Continue wrapping the sticky floral tape all the way down to the bottom. Once you get to the bottom rip the floral tape and tightly wrap the end until it is fully flush to the stem.

If you are doing all your wedding flowers we highly suggest that you only use flowers that need to be wired in moderation as you do not want to take up too much time wiring flowers. You can always go without wiring the flowers to create a more wildflower look!
