Great Centerpieces for your Wedding

One of the must have decorations for a wedding is the centerpieces. Centerpieces tie your decorations and colors all together. They are one of the main items that can help you pull your theme together. They are also one of the main items that your guests sees and notices. I added some great ideas for centerpieces. I hope this helps for all you brides!

Boxes and containers containing floral is great for a simple and yet sophisticated wedding. You can have a simple opaque box or container of one color and add a ribbon as an accent. If you are feeling creative and want to have something more unique, you can use containers that have a design or pattern on it.

Candles are wonderful to have at a wedding. They can be very romantic and simple. If you are a bride that wants your wedding theme to be romantic, than this is it! What is great about it is you can make the centerpieces yourself.

Cherry Blossoms are beautiful and what a great place occasion to use them. Cherry blossoms are very sweet and can easily make your wedding theme look absolutely pretty! You can simply hang candles, cards, and/or crystals on the branches to add a fun touch.

Many people think that centerpieces need to be floral and traditional, but not today’s modern-day! You can pull off a wedding with some head turning details. There are some really pretty fishes that can help you with decorating your centerpieces! They can swim in a simple fishbowl or they can swim in a vase with petals, flowers, or even candles.

Metallic is not seen in too many weddings. Many brides go with a matte color for their wedding day, but if you want some glowing accents to your wedding theme, add some metallic! You can find many different colors for metallic, so why not accent your decor by using them on vases or placement cards.

When people think about a calm scene/theme, they usually think about the beach. If you want to incorporate the beach into your wedding, you can add shells and corals into your centerpieces! A simple bouquet of corals and sea floral looks fabulous while a seashell or two on a candle is beautiful.

For brides whom either do not know what to do for wedding favors or want to save money, take-away centerpieces are a great idea! A few simple vase with a flower or two in them is wonderful for your guests to take home at the end of the reception, plus you create two uses for one price!


DIY Non Floral Boutonniere

Today’s weddings seem to have at least one element that is a DIY, whether it is the invitations, bouquet, or even centerpieces. It is a wonderful way to have something different or unique for your wedding day. I mean, who says you have to pay someone or a company to do every detail of your wedding day for you? This is a first post and a start of some DIY ideas you can consider. DIY are great if you want something custom and they also great for if you have a budget. Beware, you do not want to overwhelm yourself with a lot of DIY since it does take a lot of work and time.

Today’s post is about how to make your own boutonnieres. Boutonnieres do not have to always be the traditional floral. In fact, they can be fun! You can create them to go with your theme by using the colors or the actual objects. Below are some cool boutonnieres for you to see. They range in different fabrics, ribbons, feathers, paper, etc.

This image (below) is pretty funny. I have never seen any boutonnieres made out of action figures, but someone actually created them! I guess they really love action figures and comics! See what I mean by you can create your own boutonnieres with literally anything?

Materials needed:

1 hot glue gun

ribbon(s), string(s), floral tape(s)-the reason why I give you the option of one or more of these, is because you can choose what you want to do depending on how you want to create your boutonnieres.

object(s)-you can choose anything from flowers made of ribbons, sea shells, twigs, paper, etc…basically anything that you want to go with your theme.

Create your boutonniere by gluing the pieces or putting together the pieces you want together. The making part is literally all up to you and what you want to create.

If you are thinking of how to attach your boutonniere with, you can either use the traditional pin, or you can hot glue gun or attach a safety-pin to it (this way, it acts like a brooch-which is a lot easier to put on).
