    Re: help

    Get her to wear the garland.
    The means that someone must convince (or force?) her to wear it.

    Is that what you meant?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The part in bold is not grammatical and I can't understand what you mean for it to say. Can you try to use other words to say it?

    One person is going to put garland on other person's neck.

    Re: help

    Are you dressing someone who is not capable of dressing herself?

    Put her shoes on her.
    Put her jacket on her.

    This implies a baby or perhaps someone paralyzed who needs someone else to dress them.
