Are you saving the majority of your wedding flowerbudget for the reception decor? Well, you can still walk a stylish aisle with gorgeous DIY floral accents that add a little something special and don’t cost much. Check out these three DIY designs that anyone can create: Project #1: Bridal Bouquet

Playing off the pink hues and sparkle in the absolutely beautiful custom linen created by Kirby Rentals we chose a range of pink and green to achieve a romantic wedding look accented with a touch of bling. The focal flower is a bright pink Peony Rose Yves Piaget chosen for its likeness to classic Peony and its much friendlier price-point. The accent flower is a Light Pink Spray Garden Rose for texture and contrasting color. Unique greenery including variegated leaves and basket-woven grass complete the look.

DIY Materials: • White Ribbon • White Pearl DIY flower pins (available in 30+ colors) for the handle • Floral Shears Project #2: Rose Petal Aisle

And for the patterned aisle, we selected our own mix of colors for the rose petals. Again taking inspiration from the linen, we sketched out a pattern on a sheet of notebook paper and began placing petals! In minutes you too can create a stunning ceremony aisle. You just need a little imagination and some rose petals to play with. A rose petal aisle is the one DIY wedding project that everyone can do!

DIY Materials: • Craft Vinyl from a fabric store, cut to the length of your aisle Project #3: Ceremony Altar Arrangement

A bright and dramatic wedding centerpiece is the perfect focal point for your ceremony backdrop. Using the remaining peony roses, we created a professional looking design using simple floral supplies. Use a needle and thread to create a strand of petals and then attach it to the center of a DIY flower arranger. Place over the mouth of the vase to create a floating affect for the strand of petals.

To create the floral topper, insert cut flower stems into a half-round of wet foam and mount on top of the DIY flower arranger to finish.

DIY Materials: • Beaded DIY flower arranging tool • 6-inch clear glass vase • Fishing wire • Sewing Needle • Half Round Styrofoam

To get the best prices shop online for wholesale flowers and remember to ask about ready-to-go floral products such as garland, wreaths, rose petals, leis, corsages, centerpiece bouquets and more that make it super easy to DIY.
