Love In A Bottle

Photo from Threadsence
Looking for a way to decorate a wall for your ceremony or reception? Try this six foot long Botanical Garden Bottle Garland.  It has twelve small bottles attached to a galvanized wire that you can attach to a wall or hang over your head, and fill with the flowers of your choice. Each flower is like a little bit of love in each bottle. Mix up the colors or use all the same color, it's all up to you.

It's probably easiest to fill these tiny two inch bottles with silks so you don't need to worry about water. Sometimes a delicate addition shows to a better advantage than huge showy displays. What do you think? Drape one or two on the wall behind you or overhead. So pretty!
Just be sure you realize just how tiny these bottles are. Only 2", which is why I suggest using more than one for a more dramatic look.

Oudoor Wedding Project? To Do Or Not?

Photo courtesy of Turtle Pond, posted on Pinterest
Are you planning an outdoor wedding? While the photo above might be taking it a little over the top if you are trying to keep expenses down, it certainly is a good place to start thinking. 
Chandeliers are very popular recently and you might be able to find some that aren't real but that would give you 'the look.'
The 'altar' is a perfect starting point for someone who is out checking garage sales for 'just the right piece' to use at their wedding. The bonus? It will be perfect in your new home as well!
The draping is basically huge curtains hung high to give the illusion of a cathedral. All of this you can do yourself.
The flowers I admit, I'd call a good florist for, some projects are easier for a professional to do!
All in all I thought this was a great photo to inspire you to start thinking about how you want your outdoor wedding area to look. What do you think? Could you pull this together?
