Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 10, 2009
Brides are increasingly looking to do-it-yourself (DIY) projects to save money and the flowers are often on the checklist. The FlowerDIYvas - Dawn Hansen and Christine Saunders - are seasoned wedding floral design professionals in Southern California who show potential DIY brides the behind-the-scenes work it really takes to do their own wedding flowers. After watching FlowerDIYvas: Sarah's Wedding, available at FlowerDIYvas.com for $29.95, and practicing along with easy-to-follow instructions, brides will have all of the tools they need for a successful DIY flower experience - or know before their wedding day if they should hire a pro.
FlowerDIYvas: Sarah's Wedding is an interactive, fun and educational hands-on workshop video where Dawn and Christine take viewers on the journey of Sarah, the FlowerDIYvas bride. The audience goes on a shopping trip to the Los Angeles Flower District, learns to design all of the pieces for Sarah's wedding in the workshop, and joins her friends while they set up her ceremony and reception. Through the course of the video, Dawn and Christine share priceless insider tips and tricks that they have learned from the hundreds of weddings they have designed in their respective careers.
"The FlowerDIYvas video gives a realistic idea of how much effort, time and work is required to DIY" says David, a groom whose bride is eager to design their wedding flowers. Julie, his fiancée, was surprised that it would take at least 14 hours to assemble the flowers as shown in the video. "The decision to DIY will depend on if I want to - or can - put in the time, and if it's possible to be set up on the wedding day by my team". Her bridesmaid Melissa was less daunted. "There is a lot of work to do, but once you divide the time among plenty of helpers, it can be very do-able and doesn't seem so scary."
Though engaged couples like David and Julie may be strapped for cash this wedding season, they're not waiting for the economy to improve to begin their happily ever after. DIY wedding projects are gaining popularity, but designing flowers may not be for everyone. With the help of the FlowerDIYvas, brides will be able to make an informed decision well in advance of their weddings to DIY or hire a professional.
Christine Saunders and Dawn Hansen are professional floral designers for weddings and events in Southern California. Together they have created FlowerDIYvas for brides with a modest budget or who are crafty and want creative control of their wedding flowers.
