These days every bride is looking for ways to cut back and save money. Well here is one way you can do just that!
You can get square vases at any local craft store. Most places will have a variety of heights so make sure to mix it up. If you want a more abstract look, get vases that are different shapes to intermix.
Next find the section in your craft store that had decorative rocks. In this picture they are a natural look, but again, don't be afraid to mix it up some with colors.
Floating candles you can purchase just about anywhere. This particular item you want to not buy the cheapest ones you can find. You want some that will last through the reception, so splurge a little on that item!
Lastly, the flowers. If you live in a smaller town like I do or near a small town that has a farmers market, that is a great place to get your flowers. Seems like anytime I buy flowers from them they last for a really long time! Roses or orchids are great for this look but the flowers are totally up to you.
Day of wedding:
- Get Vases Ready
- Place rocks in bottom of vase
- Put some water in the vase
- Place flower on the rocks and add water until vase is 2/3rds full
- When placing candle in the water make sure it is low enough that the flame is not above the top of the vase
Whola! Beautiful and simple!
