This gentle and awesome bridal bouquet will be absolutely perfect for any wedding from country or rustic to modern or traditional ones. You will need 30 stems of lilac, 15 stems of spirea, string, flower clippers and ribbon or cloth tape. First condition flowers overnight. You need to cut the stems and cut a slit upwards in each stem to allow it to drink water. Sit them in lukewarm water in a cool place away from drafts and heat. Now strip most of the leaves off the lilacs. Usually the stems are long so trim them to around 12″ each. Make sure there is one stem per large blossom. If there are two stems, trim one off. Then make bunches of each type and color. Read here next steps of the tutorial.
