Don’t let allergies stop you from having your favourite flowers on your wedding day. Beaded flowers can be made to resemble almost any real flower seen in nature, or can be total fantasy and unique. They can even be made in to different sizes to that seen in nature. But being made of wire and beads, there is no pollen to be allergic to. There’ll be none of the sneezing, itchy eyes, or asthma attacks to spoil your special day.

Beaded flowers can be made from many different types of weaves. The most common ones are either the French Beading method, or the Victorian Beaded method. Both use wire for assembling the petals, but Victorian is usually made with horizontal rows of beads, whereas French is made with the rows going vertically around the central vertical row. Both methods are then joined to a wire stem, and is then carefully wrapped in florists tape.

The flowers can be made into anything from table arrangements and centrepieces, to bridal bouquets and bridesmaids bouquets, and even made as wedding favours.

The other great thing about beaded flowers, is that they can last a lifetime. Making them a lasting keepsake in memory of your wedding day.
