Learn the art and science (that’s right, science people!) behind creating beautiful, fresh, effortless-looking wedding flowers in our Floral Arranging: Weddings course. This 4-week class builds on our incredibly popular Floral Arranging course. You’ll create a cohesive plan for your wedding flowers that includes styling them to match your wedding look, estimating quantities, keeping the flowers fresh for the big day, how to price and contract with florists and more.

I took Chelsea's flower arranging class to gain skills to be able to do my own wedding flowers. My wedding flowers turned out amazing, but the class ended up being such an incredibly fun creative exercise beyond that purpose! I loved every minute of it. -Kate

We’ll teach you techniques for making large scale arrangements, garlands, beautiful garden-inspired modern corsages, boutonnières, hair florals, and a wild, organic bridal bouquet. We’ll also cover design techniques for centerpieces and cake flowers! It’s a total floral overload in the best way possible.

Please note that you will need to have certain supplies to fully participate in this course:
— Fresh flowers each week to practice and complete homework assignments.
— Clippers
— Camera (of any kind) to photograph your assignments to upload to the student gallery for Chelsea’s feedback
— Florist wire
— A low, wide vase
— A tall bucket or urn
