When planning and paying for a wedding, every little thing adds up. That’s why it is a great idea to make your own centerpieces.
Making your own centerpieces is an excellent idea and a way to bond with all of the special women in your life. You can hold a centerpiece-making party and have all the ladies you love come over for food and drink and to help out. In no time at all, you’ll have beautiful wedding centerpieces that won’t break your budget.
Before you start, begin gathering ideas from wedding shows and magazines. Consider the level of detail you will be able to pay attention to and the skills and abilities of you and your helpers. Be realistic. Many of the bouquets and floral arrangements in wedding magazines are designed by professionals. Ensure that you have a relaxed and open attitude so that making your floral centerpieces is more fun than frustrating. If you are afraid to do it from scratch, check out some of the do-it-yourself floral centerpieces you can purchase.
The next thing to do is to get all of your ideas into one place. Find the look that you want and then keep all of your materials together so that your concept can come together. Then, once you’ve found items you like then look for a color scheme that pleases your eye. These colors should be consistent throughout your wedding décor. Sometimes this can be your favorite color and other times it can be a trendy new color that brides everywhere are raving about. It’s all up to you.
Budget for your centerpieces:
The next thing to consider, before you meet with your florist, is to set your flower budget for your centerpieces. Flowers are the best kind of centerpiece because they set the tone, add color and fragrance and they are one of the things guests will really notice and remember. Some women have tried making floral centerpieces out of balloons and have been delighted with the results.
Next, consult with your florist and determine the type of flowers you would like. Think of roses, carnations, orchids or iris. The flowers you will be able to get will depend on where you live, the weather and season. Making spring floral centerpieces from your garden will save you money and your centerpieces will be gorgeous. Then, when you’re ready to make the floral centerpieces a day before the wedding, get your gang together and get the job done. If you enjoyed making your own centerpieces, you’ll find it is easy to make a floral and candle centerpiece as well.
