I’ve honestly never done anything like this. So I’m just trying to help out here but it might not be the correct way. I can’t see the bottom of the bouquet so I’m not sure if this is correct. Maybe they made the flowers and attached them to a sphere shaped floral foam? Then something stuck at the bottom to hold. >.<”’ Just ignore me if that was completely stupid. lol

I looked into this early in my planning process. I believe you get a round topped foam bouquet holder (can get them from Michaels or online).

Then with each flower, while you are making them you glue a long thin wooden dowel into the center of the flower (you can put a button/sequins/bead/etc or some embellishment on the flower end if you like–where the end of the dowel is visible). T

hen you start building a round bouquet with them, keeping them all at the same distance into the foam so it becomes round. There are tons of tutorials on youtube on how to do this with real flowers and the concept is the same.

@Dinnerrabbit:  Welcome to the Hive.  I found WB to be the most helpful site out of all the wedding sites.  The ladies here are very helpful and encouraging.  They are very creative also, have you checked out the DIY section?  Some of their ideas are amazing and well executed. 

Where are you in Alaska, if you don’t mind me asking?  I have tons of family there.

@Dinnerrabbit: yea, that could still work, but it’s harder to get the round shape unless you use high gauge wire so it’s nice and stiff.

I’d love to see how it turns out. Be sure to post the results when you’re finished. The pictuer you posted is gorgeous, if yours is anywhere near that I’d be impressed 🙂

@Dinnerrabbit:  I actually know where that is, just down from Anchorage.  My family is up alittle from anchorage in wasilla, but my cousin bartends at a kareoke bar in Anchorage.

One of the Blogger bees did some of these a while back, I will try and find it for you.

@Dinnerrabbit:  that is actually a pretty cool personal touch.  If you ever can’t find a resource, but you have a picture, use tineye.com.  It is a reverse look up for pictures.  It scours the web for other photos that match the one you have.  Post picture of what you have done, I would love to see your details.  I DIYed most of my wedding and thrilled that did it that way, it had alot of personal touches and saved a ton of money.
