Making homemade decorations is not only a great way to save money, but it also looks much more personal.
Be it your own wedding or someone else, these tips will help you create a great atmosphere at the wedding.
One of the best decorations for a wedding are candles. They are easy to find, cheap, and they have a great romantic atmosphere. The small lights will look especially beautiful in the evening. Candles that float on the water are truly wonderful and have a magical aura.
You can use various sized and colored candles to decorate the tables and the room. Candles together with potpourri, flowers or leaves make a perfect centerpiece.
Bows are also very beautiful and often used at weddings. They are usually made of satin ribbons and then placed on the door, tables, windows, and even added to centerpieces.
Centerpieces are very important, but they are usually very expensive. They represent the main decorations on the table and guest will surely admire them. Make your own centerpieces with flowers, candles, and bows! They will look lovely and much more natural than the ones you can buy in wedding shops. Wrap some flowers around the candle and put a bow on it. It’s that simple and it will look truly beautiful.
Flowers are usually great for decorating anything, not just for the centerpieces. Make sure you pick flowers that don’t wither too fast. There are seasonal flowers that look beautiful for many hours before they wither. You can always add a little bit of green to the flowers, or make small bouquets. Also remember to think about the color before: you can choose representative colors like pink or blue, or just go with your imagination. Use to same color to decorate everything and make sure the color of the centerpieces fit with the rest of the decorations.
