I'm floral designer, gardener and your flower bouquet coach. I'm so glad you're here. Let's enrich your bouquet skills together! Read my story
When creating unique bouquets such as triangle bouquets, corsages, hairpieces, or other small decorations, the wiring method is often used to attach hoops, frames, or small bases. For wiring, flowers with sturdy stems that are not too delicate are ideal because they are naturally not hydrated in water.
I will share 42 beautiful cut flowers that are suitable for wiring for corsages, wedding bouquets, head pieces or hair crown, and you can easily source them.
I personally love to use small-sized dahlias, roses, ranunculus, orchids, calla lilies, and some berries, depending on the season and the desired color palette. These flowers offer a wide variety of colors that can suit any season and occasion.
Some flowers, like Hydrangeas, can withstand being out of water for wiring, depending on their stage and intended use. However, it’s important to consider whether they’ll be used mainly indoors or outdoors for an extended period of time. If you plan to use them for wiring for the first time, it’s a good idea to practice in advance to ensure that they’ll hold up well, especially if they’re intended for a wedding or other important event.
For greens, there are many varieties of greens that are suitable for wiring. Thick and hardy leaves tend to hold up well in arrangements. Popular options include Eucalyptus, Italian ruscus and Ivy, but you might also find unique leaves in your garden!
