Monthly Archives: July 2012

If you are one of those brides that are really picky and want everything to be different and unique at your wedding then you need to arm yourself with patience. You will need patience in order to browse different stores and talk to different vendors and see what you can find for your wedding décor. Your centerpieces should always be based on your overall wedding concept. Make sure that once you’ve chosen the theme you also choose the color pallet so you know what color your decorations should be.

Instead of using typical flower arrangements you could go for arrangements made out of cupcakes that also resemble flowers. These edible arrangements can look like any type of flowers and they need to be ordered from a bakery. You can choose to add multicolored cupcakes or two color combinations so that these decorations stand out more. Another idea would be to put together some unique adornments made out of candles and mirrors.

Use mirrors underneath the candles and then scatter either rhinestones, confetti, rose petals, leaves and so on next to the candles. The candles can be really unique due to their shape and colors. They can be shaped as butterflies, birds, stars or whatever other symbols you think are suitable for your wedding theme. You can also use picture frames and arrange them on some logs for instance. The pictures frames should also be made out of wood if you are having a rustic theme. For a more elegant note choose some silver frames which you can add in the middle of your table area and next to them add some candles or some paper flowers.

Pumpkins are the perfect centerpieces for a fall concept. You can do lots of things with these decorative pieces such as create some bouquets or maybe even add in some candy. If you like the idea of using flowers then you should opt for some fall ones. They are much more affordable during this time of year and you will not have to spend more than you originally planned on flowers unless you want really fancy and exotic ones. Make sure that you scoop out the seed from the pumpkins before adding the flowers and then include some greenery or maybe some dried branches as well.

This will make your bouquets look very sophisticated. You can also use some simple branches inside the pumpkins or use the pumpkins on their own. They can be carved with many comical or spooky faces. If you want to go with a Halloween theme then go with the spooky aspect. Inside the pumpkins add a bunch of colorful candy bars and even some lollipops. The lollipops can match the pumpkins in terms of colors or they can be multicolored ones.
