How to decorate a bridal bodice
For this original and unusual decoration, high quality silk flowers are needed and to be chosen in pastel shades, suitable for a ceremony. For example, you can opt for orchids, peonies or white lilies. You will also need small leaves, rose or fern petals and a few meters of fine lace. You start by taking a small calla lily and adding more fake filler flowers on each side of the main flower, which must be positioned exactly in the center of the bodice. A few small leaves will then be placed behind the calla, taking care not to make them protrude beyond it, in order to maintain the focal point. The excess stems must be adjusted with the help of the nippers, taking care to leave about 2 cm of stem under the lower part of the calla. Subsequently, a piece of floral tape 10 cm long will be obtained, so that it is sufficient to cover the stems of each floral element. Holding the bodice still, the floral ribbon will be wrapped around the stems, proceeding downwards and with extreme delicacy. If desired, the flowers on the back of the bodice can be stopped with a pair of pins of the same color.
