By Sophia Rodriguez
If you are looking to make your own wedding flowers, count your lucky stars that you live in this modern age of floral design. In the past, wedding florists had a very difficult life. They had to wire each flower individually! Every rose, every piece of foliage and every carnation had to be wired in order to compose wedding bouquets. All bouquets had to be made in vases or other containers and had to be pretty much self supporting. Can you imagine making floral arrangements, pew markers, bouquets and cake flowers with nothing but wire and tape on your side!

Luckily, in 1954, floral foam was invented! You know, those green blocks of water absorbing foam used for putting together floral arrangements. This invention has revolutionarized the way wedding flowers are made and made life much easier for the florists and for do it yourselfers like your who take the beauty of their wedding into their own hands. Not only does floral foam make life easier, it also keeps flowers fresher longer. For you, that means you can make your bouquets days in advance and still walk down the aisle with flowers that look like they were freshly picked.
