If you are a DIY bride who loves sunflowers, putting together a DIY sunflower wedding bouquet is a quick and easy task.
Simply follow the steps in this video presentation by the folks at Blooms By The Box.
It walks you through how to make a sunflower wedding bouquet, even if you have never worked with sunflowers before.
I thought it was absolutely worth sharing. Watch it…I think you’ll agree!
I hope you enjoyed the video. As you can see, making a DIY sunflower wedding bouquet is not really that difficult, is it?
Here’s a couple of sunflower bouquets I recently did for a small, informal outdoor wedding.
I accented the sunflowers with some dark green pittosporum and tree fern, but you can use whatever greenery you like.
I tied it together with natural raffia and finished it off with a simple, shoelace-type bow. it doesn’t get much easier than that.
Choosing Sunflowers For a Wedding Bouquet
Personally, when I make any bouquets using a single flower, I like to use different flower sizes to provide a more natural look.
In the bridal bouquet pictured above, I used both large and mini-sunflowers. In the attendant’s bouquet, I just used two large blooms.
Large sunflowers are packed in 5 stem bunches, while smaller sunflowers (medium and mini) are packed in 10 stem bunches.
To make these bouquets, all I needed was one bunch of large sunflowers and one bunch of mini-sunflowers, a total of 15 stems. I also made 2 boutonnieres with the remaining mini-sunflowers.
Commercially-grown flowers are more carefully graded to provide more consistency in each bunch. In my opinion, they are your best option for wedding and floral design work.
Where the Best Place to Buy Sunflowers
If you don’t need a minimum of 25 large sunflowers, or 50 mini-sunflowers flowers, I would source them locally. Check with a reputable local florist for their price.
If you do need more than a handful of sunflowers, they are widely available online,
The sunflowers used in the video can be purchased at BloomsbytheBox (It is their video).
There are others that look really good too, but I’m afraid I’ve never dealt with them.
One quick bit of advice, if I may. If you do use silk sunflowers, I suggest mixing in fresh foliage and filler flowers whenever possible, to keep your wedding bouquets looking more lifelike.
This pretty much applies to any type of silk flowers you work with, not just sunflowers.

What’s My Experience In The Flower Business
Let me give you a little information about my background in the flower business. My name is Greg Johnson. I’m the voice behind this site as well as a retail florist and shop owner for more than forty years.
I’ve assembled some pretty informative floral design videos for you here.
Many are focused on ideas you can do yourself. That’s really my purpose with this website.
There’s a “but” though…
Before anything else, I’ve got an admission to make. Honestly, building this site was, if I’m being totally honest, a selfish act on my part.
I honestly just wanted a place where I could share videos that answer these questions. I also wanted to add my own thoughts as well, all under one roof.
Of course, I do see this as something of an opportunity, as well.
I enjoy earning a bit of sponsorship revenue from the side, as I share these floral design videos with you. Hopefully, you’re okay with that.
It’s a wonderful world we’re living in where we can get paid for sharing our passions. I like to take full advantage. But don’t get me wrong here… in no way is it my intention to sell you anything.
If you see a product or service on this site that you think will help, perfect! But if not, it’s still all good. It’s just really great to have you here.
Income or no, I just want to share useful floral design information with good people like you!
So that’s why this site exists. It’s just a floral design enthusiast’s home for some really cool videos. If that sounds like something you can appreciate, then I’d love to see you again.
Keep yourself updated
I will continue to share floral design videos here that I think are helpful, and chipping in my “two cents worth” based on my own personal experience.
