Bouquets, button holes and decorations can feel like a lot to do, but with artificial flowers and greenery you can start ahead of time.

Online tutorials can help get you going, remember, practice makes perfect. Taking a photo of your final designs means you can enlist your friends to help out, simply copy and repeat.

Artificial flowers keep on giving, they last forever so make great gifts and mementos of your day, or reuse them for birthdays and anniversaries.

Make sure you save room for cake!
