Are you a bride on a budget? Take a peek at my own DIY wedding centerpieces. The brown bottle vases pictured are recycled beer bottles. The groom helped by simply continuing to drink his favorite beers, and soaking them in hot water to remove the labels. The result: free wedding centerpieces! Is this a win-win or what!?
Helpful hint: The narrower the opening of the bottles – the better. This helps the flowers to stand up on their own. I wanted small bottles to accommodate dainty florals at my wedding. Luckily, dainty florals also saves on budget.
The tiny jars of baby’s breath are my favorite! They blend with the lace table runners to create an element of feminine charm.
The florals were designed by Unique Floral Designs out of Simi Valley, California. This mother and daughter duo (Laurie + Heather) brought our Pinterest dreams to life! They also helped us stick to a budget and even provided tips to make our florals more affordable. Talk about genuine & nice people! It was a privilege to collaborate with them.
The rentals were provided by A Rental Connection, serving Los Angeles and surrounding areas. ARC provided almost everything: tables + chairs + place settings + lighting + etc. They have tons of choices and warehouses of great inventory from rustic to modern to everything-in-between. They listened closely and brought all our visions to life… & then some!
