DAR­ING TO GO DIY?

New Zealand Weddings Planner - - Flowers -

If you’re plan­ning to get stuck in and do it your­self, you’ll want to take note of these top tips to help per­fect your blooms.

✤ Go for some­thing sim­ple – per­haps all fo­liage, or one or two blooms en masse – you can’t go wrong with a sim­ple de­sign.

✤ Get scout­ing. You can find so much great fo­liage all around you and in your own back­yard. Go forth and for­age!

✤ You’ll need hands, and lots of them. Grab a few peo­ple to give you some DIY help.

✤ Ar­range a cool, dry place to store the flow­ers be­fore the day so they don’t wilt.

✤ Get the tools of the trade – kitchen scis­sors are not go­ing to do the job. Grab a hardy pair of gar­den clip­pers, flo­ral tape and lots of pretty rib­bon or twine.

✤ There is po­ten­tial to save on your blooms by buy­ing flow­ers from whole­salers.
