DIY Bridal Ribbon Bouquet
Belles Of Beirut is back! It feels like a part of me is alive again :) If you're wondering, I've been out for good and happy reason, i got married and went away on a long and charming honeymoon to Italy ... And now that this stage of my life is over , i can't wait to show you what I've been up to while preparing for the big day
If you're a bride-to-be or know someone who's engaged to be married, make sure you do something personalized whether big or small , it makes all the difference. I'll be posting some pictures from the wedding once the professional pictures are out to show you how my friends at Cherry On Top Events turned my ideas into reality.
Once we set the date , the first thing i started thinking of was the bouquet. Many brides obsess over the perfect dress and with good reason but a statement bouquet has a aura of its own. I thought of what flower i loved the most and trust me i researched plenty only to realize that i didn't have one . My passion was for ribbons and that's how my bouquet came to be.
Roula , my wedding planner helped me find these ribbons. We went for different fabrics , colors , sizes and for those who know me well, plenty of lace
Lay the ribbons piece by piece and fold them in 2 , they don't have to be even or symmetrical . Let is look as if you just picked up a pile of ribbons
Once done, fix the folds so that the ribbons are not bent then get someone to help you tie them at the neck. Use a thin ribbon to secure and make sure the bouquet is not too heavy!
Your bouquet will last forever
