For sunflowers I would go with hand-tied. I’m not sure they would even fit in a holder. Holders remind me of the 80’s for some reason. LOL. Who know why! Anyway, sunflowers have a very organic look, so a hand tied bouquet would look just right! Good Luck!

I agree with KateMW….hand tied 🙂 I am really thinking about using sunflowers also (Labor Day weekend wedding in 2010) because I’m from Kansas and I love the connection. Plus, I think tied bouquets just look better with either the wrap on the stems or the exposed ones on bottom. Have you thought about hand tied with a pretty ribbon hanging? I have this photo below saved in my files…it’s from Martha Stewart Weddings. I love the big bow! Go to the website and read more about the wedding and to see more photos of the bouquet if you’d like. And just yesterday I was searching for sunflower bouquets and found the one with roses added and L-O-V-E-D it! I highly suggest you check out this website for more sunflower inspiration!! Good luck 😀

I think hand-tied looks so much more romantic…

You’re welcome! I love that bouquet you found. What if you used brown fabric to wrap the stems and then wrapped lace over the brown? That way you get both! I would just make sure the lace doesn’t wrap more then once, it may cover up the brown underneath too much. Secure the lace with some pretty pearl headed pins?
