Click on the photos to enlarge their size. All these bouquets were designed and made by our students during wedding flower lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. Arrangements were made under the instruction of our floral arrangement teacher. After completing these bouquets, we took pictures of bouquets that were held by our students in the classroom. Since the photos were taken during lessons by our staff (or other student), preparation of clothing and the background were not professionally made comparing with other schools' or studios' photographs. However we hope you can feel real real classroom atmosphere during lessons.
By the present time, we find that the term of "wedding flower" reminds most people of a bridal bouquet. Bouquet always comes first as an image of wedding flowers. Actually many florists and also floral design instructors teach how to make bridal bouquets for wedding flower lessons. Floral shops have no difficulties of selling bouquets compared with a larger size of wedding flowers such as head table arrangements etc.
How about other wearable wedding flowers such as pomanders and corsages ? Compared with bouquets, they are not popular items that can be sold at floral shops seemingly because pomanders are not so well known among people who are not familiar with wedding flowers and not so suitable for table decorations. As for corsage, this is quite popular as a wearable floral decoration. Again however it does not fit with a design displayed at home. Bouquets are mainly used as a hand-tied flower. However it can be well used as a decoration placed in a vase on the table.
Compared with ordinary floral arrangements such as centerpieces, making bouquets is a time consuming project. Unless a student is well experienced in flower arrangements, it usually takes almost two hours to make one piece of bouquet using fresh flowers. However all students are quite happy and feel like their efforts are paid off when they successfully complete a bouquet. As bouquet is a quite popular and important wedding decoration, some of curriculum of our standard flower arranging courses include lessons of bouquets.
However some students want to learn only bouquets and they do not have a keen interest in learning other wedding flowers. On top of that the lesson fees for lengthy courses are little bit expensive. In order to help students who would like to focus on learning bouquets and minimize a lesson fee, California Flower Art Academy
