Think Outside of the Box
I had a conversation with a bride at a recent bridal show and during the course of the conversation the question of her color choices came up. She began telling me that she originally had her heart set on a blue, white and silver winter wedding but couldn’t find blue flowers that were in season in January. Reluctantly she was thinking of changing to red and black. WHAT!!! Well that’s just not right. I took her to see the booth of Jill Cole at Southern Event. I had run into Jill the day before and I knew she had a beautiful vignette with mirrored vases and silver curly willow. I told the bride, “Add blue linen and you have your colors!! Do you have to have flowers?” You could see the light bulb go off in her head.
If you are a bride on a budget you have to think outside the box. The picture aboveis a centerpiece I put together recently.
I rented the tray, paid a dollar for the vase, a dollar for the candle holders and bought the rocks at Home Depot, add ONE flower and TaDa…zen magic. Each centerpiece was under $8 and they weren’t floating candles surrounded by rose petals.
Nothing says that your wedding has to look like every other wedding you have seen. This is a day to show your uniqueness. Look for inspiration in places besides bridal magazines. Look at fashion and home décor magazines. There is inspiration everywhere you look. I would love to know where you found your inspiration. Post a comment and let the world know how creative you are.
