You could probably do them the night before if you keep it in the fridge.

@lanalnoco:  This looks really beautiful but the only thing is that orchids are very finicky flowers. Have you thought about using real touch flowers? I’m having a destination wedding and my bouquet has orchids in it that are real touch and they look super real. Here is a picture of my bouquet…you cant even tell they are fake!! This might be a better route unless you plan to stay up all night the day before your wedding making this and who knows if they would still look as nice the next day.

@lanalnoco: Do you have a good flower market close by? If so, I would go there and buy cut orchids and experiment – how to string them, how long will they last, colour combinations etc…

@lanalnoco: I know all about that – the logistics behind a DW!

Preserved orchids, like dry?

@lanalnoco: Thank you for the link! I’ve wanted to get dried lavender instead of paper confetti; if I can’t get enough from our garden, I’ll definitely buy some from this site.

 

Good luck with your garlands!
