I decorated for a wedding last year that I was apart of,
I made the centerpieces out of antique coke bottles, filled them with sand to weigh them down, inserted choke cherry branches and dried peonies both from my backyard.
I made paper airplanes to string between the branches out of book pages
(The wedding reception was held in an airplane hangar.)
I also had pink and clear crystals that I hung from the branches!
Most of the center pieces look similar!
I also made burlap bows with ribbon and added paper flowers from the same book pages,
with a cricut! I used the Large flower cartridge.
they can be seen here on the card box,
And the pews,
And on another card box,
I lent them the use of four of my cake stands from the Wilton brand,
put tulle and a string of white roses on the table!
It gave the tables a beautiful texture!
And of course the chalkboard for the ceremony of course:
I also made all the bridesmaids necklaces and earrings, I even hand embroidered a beautiful necklace for the bride as a gift.
I also gave them a window with their initial and happily ever after on the bottom as another gift.
For pretty cheap I was able to throw most of this together by myself and within a short period of time.
Also I did some hair for the bridesmaids.
Oh and I paid half of the mother of the bride dress because they couldn't afford it.
My biggest mistake is that I did all of this thinking it would be appreciated.
My biggest mistake is doing nice things for people who don't think nice things about me.
You live, you learn!
