DIY Wedding Wednesday: Centerpiece How-To

centerpiece how to

When the idea for this post came up, truth be told, I panicked a little. Although I love flowers (I mean, what girl doesn’t?!) and have pulled together many arrangements in my day, I always advise (where budget allows) to never DIY your florals. But let’s face it, when budgets are factored in not everyone has the luxury of working with a floral designer. So to all you ladies feeling brave and looking to stretch your dollar without compromising an ounce of pretty, this blog’s for you!

The Supplies

centerpiece supplies

  • good pair of shears
  • floral foam (to fit whatever vase you decide to use)
  • flowers, in order of appearance: lisianthus, astilbe, queen anne’s lace, spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and sedum

The Step by Step

centerpiece how to - step 1

Step 1: saturate your floral foam with water and place into your vase. Begin to build your floral arrangement creating a starting point for your two front facing corners. Make one over flowing with eucalyptus and the other tighter to the center with queen anne’s lace.

Step 2: continue to build your arrangement by adding another overflow on the opposite corner to the original and begin to fill out your middle with a blend of sedum and lisianthus.

Step 3: continue to fill in your arrangement, adding in astilbe. Start to concentrate on your arrangement as a whole, paying attention to all angles.

Step 4: add in spray roses. as you work on filling your arrangement make sure to fill all gaps and keep a mix of flowers throughout the whole.

The End Result

You could stop right here but for a fuller table arrangement (and some added decor), finish off the look with a couple of votive holders filled with a few floral stems, as well as some candlelight.

Mismatched with Style – A Vintage Wedding Photoshoot

Photobucket

It is not too often that I receive a submission with a staged photoshoot, and less often that I will accept them. However this particular one is so incredibly stunning, there wasn’t a chance I was going to deprive all our fabulous readers!

This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”

Sarah & Phil: Love Letters and Family

Every wedding should have at least one thing that is extra special and unique. A little something that comes straight from the heart and makes you realize how in love the Bride and Groom really are.

In this sweet wedding it was the vows, letters that spoke of first meetings, hope for the future and in the Groom’s case; his delight that not only would this wedding give him the woman he loved for his Bride, but also her daughter, Isabella, for his own.
