A mad rush to get ready has been worth it for three Wellington women, who are planning a blooming good time at the sevens dressed as flowers.

Hayley Goodman , 25, her sister Jade, 23, and Amanda Gardiner, 26, were putting the final touches on their lily outfits yesterday.

''It's going to be such a great day,'' legal assistant Hayley Goodman said.

''It's been a big rush this year, but we found this costumes on Trade Me and they're great. We wanted to get something we'd never seen before.''

In previous years the trio have gone as flight attendants, ringmasters and jailbirds.
Jade Goodman said they tried to bring the level up each year. ''The competition is pretty intense.

''It's the one party of the year where you're guaranteed to have a great time. And it's not just at the sevens, it's all over town.''

The three are planning to take things quietly today, before heading to the stadium a little later, and making sure they're in good shape for Saturday. ''That's when you really cut loose,'' Jade said.

The trio weren't planning to get too carried away with drinking, however. ''You spend all this money, so you want to remember it.''

Are more speed cameras good for Wellington's roads?

Yes - if people go slower, they'll drive safer.

Only if they set them up in problem areas, not speed traps.

No - they're a revenue gaining tool only.

Blowed if I know.
