Wedding Arrangement Ideas: Floral Wedding Wreaths, Centerpieces, Themes, and Head Wreaths
Your summer wedding should have a centerpiece that represents you. Just by looking at
your table settings, your guests should know they are at the right wedding. If you like the country cottage look, the contrast of black and white, and reusable items, then here are 10 simple arrangement ideas that will make your guests feel right at home.
Country Cottage Wedding
Have a country cottage wedding with natural elements such as twigs, wood, and flowers. Place a lantern in the center of a floral wreath. If you do not have a lantern, use a cluster of pillar candles. Instead of using flowers, try twigs, vines, herbs, or grasses. Preassembled or artificial wreaths can be personalized by adding ribbons, acorns, or pinecones. The options are endless. Watch this YouTube.com tutorial to learn how to make your own wreath.
To save money on flowers, try making a ribbon wreath by wrapping ribbon around a Styrofoam wreath ring. You can find Styrofoam wreath rings at most craft stores or online. For a different look, cover your wreath ring with fabric. Try using a bright color, such as yellow, pink, or floral fabric. Wrap vases with natural fabrics, such as burlap, sisal, or jute. Add homemade candles to your table. Here is a YouTube.com video on how to make homemade candles. Another idea is to take a large wooden bowl and stack vegetables and fruit in it for a "green" country-wedding centerpiece.
Black and White Wedding
Create at black and white themed wedding by having everything in black and white. Use
black & white floral arrangements, table settings, and wedding favors. Have black & white bridesmaiddresses with matching head wreaths. This YouTube.com tutorial will show you how to create a head wreath. Remember to use black ribbon with your white flowers. If
