We made ours and did just as PP did, misted them and put them in the fridge overnight.

They’re fairly simple. I did a trial run to make sure I could do it!

I agree with everyone on this post.  I made 14 in total for a wedding…all the day before.  Misted them with water then placed in a ziplock then and stored in the fridge.  They were awesome.  However, just make sure you have the time to do them.  :). Goodluck and post pics if you do them!!!

There was a crew of three or four people going on our b’s and c’s. My sister DIYed them, but she has taken professional floral arrangement classes so she knew how to handle them. There were some hints I picked up from here, maybe they’ll help. If the flowers you buy need to open up a bit more you can put them in a sink of warm water – a warm humid place. Cutting the stems fresh and putting them in sugar water really does help keep them alive if you have to buy them a bit before making them. She stripped off the extra leaves right away too. She did all the flowers in our basement with the window open in the winter (feb wedding) as it is very important to keep them cold for them to last. Like others said, when done, ziploc bags, spray bottle, fridge. She bought some fancy magnets rather than using pins to attach (from the wholesaler) which worked out great, made them super easy to put on people, and everybody loved them. She had people helping her who had never touched floral arrangements before in their lives and it worked out great. Didn’t help out myself or I’d give better pointers. Hope some of this is useful!

@msfuturea:  You also still have plenty of time to practice. Get some inexpensive flowers, floral tape and any accent pieces you are going to use and have a few trial runs. I wouldn’t wait till the day before the wedding to learn how to be a florist.
