Caring for Fresh Wedding Flowers

  • First make sure you take the morning or afternoon off so you are at home when your fresh wedding flowers are delivered.

    It's critical to get them into water straightaway as the last thing you want is to come home to a bucketful of limp, drooping blooms!

  • Before your gorgeous flowers arrive, make sure you have several buckets ready. Clean and scrub your buckets with bleach to remove any trace of bacteria which could harm your flowers and accelerate the natural ageing process.

  • Make sure you cut your flowers UNDER water so that no air bubbles can travel up the stem and cause your flowers to keel over.

  • Before arranging, use a product like Quick Dip to dip your flower roots and once your flowers are designed and ready, make sure you keep them fresh by applying a spray like Finishing Touch.

DIY brides can have lots of fun using the excellent wedding supply products that are available on the market today.

Take a look at the Oasis website which has colorful foam in all shapes and sizes plus colored sand to put in glass jar/flower arrangements and funky metallic wire to wrap flower stems together.
