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