Adding Snapdragons

Wedding Flower Step-by-Step Tutorials

Adding snapdragons is the next step in our bridal bouquet design. A member of the Figwort family (funny name, huh?), the snapdragon is a standard favorite with florists.

This gorgeous flower has a natural bend at the top, and the individual florets actually "snap" when gently squeezed. Most have a gentle, sweet fragrance and are very desirable as a line flower. They are available in pinks, white, yellow, purple and orange.

I begin inserting snapdragons around the outside diameter of the bouquet holder, thus establishing the shape and size of the final bouquet.

Please try to always insert your stems ONCE. Pushing and pulling stems in and out of the Oasis causes a breaking down of the foam.

Complete inserting these flowers all around. The snapdragon at the bottom should be longer, emphasizing the length of the cascade.
