This guest blog is courtesy of our featured vendor, Blooms by the Box – a fabulous resource for DIY flower projects. Diana from Blooms by the Box has been kind enough to provide this lovely DIY tutorial for an elegant wedding centerpiece with a how-to video, too!
Here is the exclusive how-to video, just for DIY Bride readers: Elegant DIY Wedding Centerpiece
Many brides think that they need to be some kind of professional to pull of this elegant wedding look. The truth is, you can do this yourself, even if you are not “artsy” or the “DIY it all” type. The fact is buying wholesale flowers to DIY can save you money so you can splurge in other areas. Maybe you get a wedding video made, add extra guests, or splurge on a honeymoon with the savings you can incur by doing-it-yourself!
Flowers in this arrangement:
- Vendela Roses
- Cream Spray Roses
- Dendrobium Orchids Bombay
- Dendrobium Orchids (White)
- Snap Dragons (White)
- Wax Flower (White)
- Israeli Ruscus
- Tree Fern
The vase is a white plastic urn. This urn looks classic and expensive but in fact is very inexpensive and can be purchased in bulk.
Watch the video to learn how you can make this look all your very own! Use your creativity by using a different color scheme with the same basic flowers or add some interesting textures! To save money on a look like this eliminate orchids and purchase more snap dragons, larkspur, or stock to contribute to the height of the arrangement. Another way to cut the cost of is to fill with greenery that will still give you the full look you need with less
I hope the video has been helpful in teaching you how to make your own elegant yet unique centerpieces!
