You may even ask your customer what she wants beforehand and work according to her own theme.

You will need to start looking online for ideas for creative handmade wedding invitations, wedding décor, table décor or even bridal and bridal party bouquets. There are numerous ideas that you can try and experiment with until you have perfected a few of the designs.

In addition to that, you could make plastic flowers or even paper designed flowers that you can make in to a bouquets. It would be useful to explain on your social media pages why having a handmade bouquet is so much more useful that having a fresh flower bouquet because fresh flowers wilt.

Marketing your new business
After you have completed all of your samples, you will want to create social media pages for your business. You will need to have a Facebook page, a Twitter account and most importantly an Instagram account to upload pictures of all of your samples. You will need to ask all of your friends and relatives to share your sample images in order to let your potential customers know that your business exists. In fact, you can even have a competition or two in the first month or two that would ask your fans to share and win the image you post where the winner would receive a free gift from your company.
