Planning your dream wedding on a very real budget? You’re not alone. Cutting back on the pricey parts of your wedding is never easy, but if you have even an ounce of “do-it-yourself” spirit, you might find some of the tasks you had planned to pass off to a pro are kind of fun to DIY.
Case in point: the flowers. While we think no one can take the place of one of our Certified By The Guide floral designers, you may find that someone you know and love may indeed have to take a pro’s place: your mother or sister, perhaps. But before you send Mom to the flower market with a handful of color swatches and good intentions, she may need a little professional guidance.
With that goal in mind, East Bay floral designer Patricia Gibbons is holding a Design Your Own Wedding Flowers workshop. The March 22nd event will demonstrate how to create bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres. You’ll learn lots of helpful tips on how to keep the flowers fresh and beautiful, and how to properly use color to make your flowers look amazing.
