"For that kind of bouquet I usually create face designs, which are wide but not deep, and flat on the back… What I mean by saying “not deep” is if you look at the bouquet from the top, you want to be able to insert all the stems in a rectangle shape, not a square one. One good test to make sure it is fine is to try to carry the bouquet over your arm, just like if you were holding a baby (see below/Anna Tereshina Photography)… And flat on the back is important, it is easier for the bride to lay it somewhere when she is tired of carrying it without damaging it."
