Always felt like a frustrated florist…? Knowing those creative skills lie hidden somewhere within…?

Or maybe being green-fingered isn’t exactly your forte, but hell, you’re willing to give some Wedding DIY a go with your trusty Maids in tow!

Whichever floral camp you find yourself in, help is most definitely at hand for those fancying a little bit of DIY & design when it comes to their own wedding flowers.

Shoreditch-based florist Columbia Creative has announced the launch of its 2015 DIY Wedding Workshops. Offering creative guidance and expert tutorials on creating bouquets, buttonholes, centrepieces and general wedding floral design, Columbia Creative’s new DIY wedding flower workshops will help budding Brides- to-be learn the skills required to design beautiful floral displays.

As well as being an interactive and interesting experience that can be shared with the bridal party, the workshops {held at their Boxpark site} allow Brides to retain creative control over their desired wedding decor and keep costs down. To ensure minimal hassle in the days before the wedding, Columbia Creative also offers the option to source the necessary wholesale flowers at reasonable prices, allowing Brides to collect their freshly bloomed flowers from the store at a convenient time.

So, for those Brides & Grooms celebrating within a ‘dry’ hire venue or looking to keep their budget within sight this is a fab idea! So if you like the sound of it, or think it would make a great bonding tip with your bridal party then you can find the full delicious details for each workshop below!

DIY Wedding Flowers Consultation

During a 45-minute private consultation, Columbia Creative defines the exact floral requirements and designs a plan to best fulfill them, discussing an extensive range of flower options as well as quantities to maximise effect and minimise waste for couples looking to create their own flower arrangements. Following insights from the workshops on the desired floral look and level of professional involvement required, Columbia Creative provides a menu of services to support couples – from simply ordering the flowers to adding the finishing touches at the venue. Where sundries are required, Columbia Creative can provide these at very competitive prices, saving on costly bulk purchases at the market.

Price: £25 for 45-minute consultation.

All materials are included in the price. Brides looking to book two or more workshops will receive a complimentary 45-minute private wedding flowers consultation.
