I spend my evenings (and far too much of my working days, if I’m honest!) poring over the most amazing flowers on Instagram. I’d love to create the arrangements I see there, but I know there’s tons more to floral design than meets the eye…

Today’s feature is especially for brides and grooms (and mothers of brides!) who would love to save money on wedding flowers without sacrificing quality. Ruth from Natural Favours, who has recently launched a DIY flower service, is here to share 7 super tips with you – I think they’re brilliant!

“The cost of your big day floristry can creep up to around 10% of the entire budget which can be a significant chunk when the average cost of a wedding can be upwards of £20k.  Here at Natural Favours HQ we are strong believers that it is perfectly possible to have the day of your dreams without the hefty price tag.  If you’re feeling a little bit creative and a lot savvy, then DIY flowers could be the way to go!
