    Lovely design but demanding to do on the day of the wedding!

      Thank you for your feedback Isabel. Providing a deep enough container is used to house the chicken wire, it could be filled with water allowing the design to be made the day before. Store it in a cool, dark environment and monitor the water levels. A light misting is also beneficial.
      Although not Eco-friendly, you could use floral foam if preferred, again allowing for the design to be made before the day.
