Beaded bouquets are not only beautiful but they also add a touch of class and elegance to the bridal ensemble. To add beads to the flowers you can simply glue them on using clear drying glue. If you choose to add beads to the bouquet, you can use bead pins or pearl-headed pins. You just stick the pin in the holder wherever you want them. To liven up the pearl pins add a few sprinkles of glitter.

Strings of crystal beads can also be intertwined in the bouquet. These strings of beads come in a large assortment of colors. You can mix and match colors or stick with one color. If you are able to find strings that have multi colors they are even better especially if your bouquets have more than one color flower in them.

  1. Nice read. However though paper flowers are an alternative, fresh cut flowers are the best. They bring life to any wedding and they are not necessarily expensive. DIY wedding flowers packages saves money and time.
