DIY Underwater Wedding Flora Arrangement – a step by step guide

I can’t say enough about the newest trend in wedding centerpiece – the underwater floral arrangement. It’s trendy, it’s dramatic, and it doesn’t seem too hard to make. Being naturally curious about things in general, I had to learn more about how those underwater floral arrangements are done. Hope this information save you or someone you know a buck or two on wedding centerpiece.

DIY Underwater Floral Arrangement
Almost any flower can be used in underwater floral arrangement, so experiment with different kinds of flowers. The nice thing about this is that it doesn’t use that many flowers for each.

  1. The most difficult part about the underwater arrangement is to keep the flowers underwater. To achieve this, it’s best to use a weighted frog. Alternatively, you could push floral pins through sticky poster tape to hold things in place.
  2. Once the weight is done, press floral foam into the weight. You could cover the floral foam by wrapping it with large foliage and pin it in place, or cover the bottom of the vase with pebbles.
  3. Arrange flowers of your choosing on the floral foam. A stem of orchid or 2-3 calla lilies would look great with a tall cylinder. For smaller vase, push a single gerbera daisy into the foam, or use a group of 3-5 roses to form a ball around the foam. Add foliage as needed.
  4. Just add water, and perhaps a floating candle, and viola!

More DIY Wedding Decorations – The Floating | Underwater Arrangement

If you have been involved in planning a wedding these days, chances are you have noticed the new trend in floral centerpiece – the floating floral arrangements. Basically you would have flowers of your choice floating in tall cylinder vases filled with water, rocks at the bottom. They look amazing, easy enough to do it yourself, and much cheaper as you won’t need as many flowers.

I really like how the candles look transparent, it makes the vase look like a big candle, so seamless, neat and elegant. You can find these at The Wedding Bella. Just search under “water candles”
