    Hello

    have spent a good load of yesterday sowing seeds for our wedding. We have a limited budget and I love to do craft things so thought I would try to do my own.

    Is anyone else going for this - and if so any tips?

    Im doing my own flowers but im a florist and would be a complete nightmare if i had another florist doing my flowers.
    My advice would be to use artificial flowers as they are cheaper and can be reused if youmake any mistakes.

    Hi,
    My advice would be to do your own table flowers the day before but let someone else do your bouquets.
    Your wedding morning will just fly past so its best not to be in a flap about your flowers!
    Hope that helps

    Doing your own table flowers is fine the day before.
    If you get your flowers from a florists they will have been conditioned already when you buy them, so you have no need to fuss too much.When you order them, just ask your florist if they will have conditioned them already.
    What sort of seeds have you sown for yourself. Some garden flowers need good conditioning or will wilt very quickly. Ivy needs a good long drink or goes very floppy, and wildflowers will keel over as soon as picked.
    I did my own flowers as well, but my bouquet was in silks, as were my large displays. The table displays were all done the day before and put into cool storage overnight.
    Please dont put flowers in the fridge, most domestic fridges are too cold.
    Hope all goes well,
    Bernie
