No matter what your wedding theme, modern, industrial, country, or beach themed , you can make your own affordable and simple wedding centerpieces that look anything but cheap. Just follow these step by step instructions to make your centerpiece arrangements quickly and at a very low-cost.

  1. Find a suitable base to place in the center of your table.  It should be made from a material that best suits your style of wedding; anything from wood to glass. In this example, let’s use some tall silver candle holders.
  2. Next put a Styrofoam sphere on top of the chosen base.
  3. The image shown in this DIY is made from artificial flowers which should be cut at the stem.
  4. Stick the flowers together with white glue very tightly so that they remain in place. You can also use real flowers when assembling this wedding centerpiece. If you wish, cut the stems close to the bulb and attach the bulb with a florist wire so that it better grips the Styrofoam sphere.

Elegant stripes and bold poppies cake. This cake definitely makes a statement.

Choosing wedding cakes is not a simple task. When we start looking for the traditional dessert for our wedding, we discover that there is a huge variety of wedding cakes. They vary not only in number of tiers, but also in decoration and style. Selecting one is a tough decision when there are so many and they are all so beautiful! Let’s see if I can help you pick yours! 🙂

Single-Tier Elegant Wedding Cakes: The Latest Wedding Trend

If you are planning an intimate wedding, you’ll love these cakes. If you are looking for something original and for what’s hot right now, you fall in love with them. And as wedding cakes do not need to be huge to make an impression, these single-tier cakes will stand out for their simplicity and elegance.

These elegant wedding cakes are not ostentatious and therefore allow you to play with texture to turn them into magnificent wedding decor. Translating these works of art into a traditional three-tiered cake would cost you a small fortune. So, splurge and decorate away, it’s only one tier!

These cakes can fit any wedding theme: from bucolic to industrial, from vintage or boho to shabby chic. They will even fit a beach-themed wedding!

Moreover, as the dessert tables and coffee bars trend keeps on growing, wedding cakes are being left uneaten. Such a waste! A single-tier cake will look amazing and I can assure you there will be no crumbs left!

The Whimsical Elegance of The 2-Tiered Wedding Cakes

If you don’t want to bet on the traditional and have a few more guests to feed, go for the 2-tiered wedding cake.

These cakes allow for a range of geometric combinations. For example, you can have a round tier atop a square or hexagonal one, or tiers of different heights with the same or different patterns.

Pull off an elegant industrial or a rustic glam look by mixing metallics and thin layers of buttercream.

Classic and Elegant Wedding Cakes: Three Tiers Of Flavor!

I promise that in one of my next articles, I will tell you the why wedding cakes usually have three tiers – but for now, let’s take a look at some three-tier confection masterpieces.

Are you looking for a glam look? Elevate your frosting from simple to simply elegant with shimmery silver or gold sequins. If your wedding theme is industrial, then cover one of the tiers with metallic accents. For a rustic look, go with a half-dressed or semi-frosted cake with a thin layer of American buttercream. Or cover it with edible pearls, fondant or sugar roses for a vintage look.

50+ Trendiest Gold Wedding Ideas

Nothing says elegance, luxury and glam like a gold wedding. Sprinkle a little glitz or go all the way. Transform your reception into a night to remember with these outstanding gold wedding ideas.

Glam gold wedding: Elegant place settings with red and gold. Deep red and gold embolden the classics. These rich tones will imbue your wedding with a regal air.

Glam gold wedding: Elegant place settings with red and gold.

Metallics and gold in particular have become increasingly popular in weddings. From a single showpiece to an entire gold-themed wedding, gold is easy to combine with different wedding styles. Gold weddings allow you to try different accent colors.

Metallics have made an entrance on the wedding circle and show no signs of leaving anytime soon. Gold will reign over the Parisian-themed wedding, which is back in 2017! French elegance and traditions will inspire you with touches of this timeless color!

Read on and discover the best tips to decorate your wedding with gold.

Glorious gold weddings

According to Bourn Creative, “The color gold is cousin to the color yellow and the color brown, and is also associated with illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic, and wisdom. Gold is a precious metal that is associated with wealth, grandeur, and prosperity, as well as sparkle, glitz, and glamour.”

Although you may be tempted to go overboard with gold, its inclusion in the decoration should be handled with care. The theme and style of the wedding are essential in determining if you can go bonkers with this color, or if you should reduce its use to just a few details.

A Gatsby theme, filled with glitz, glamour, and opulence translates well into white or black and gold weddings. The same applies to an ultra glam wedding. On the other hand, a shabby chic or a rustic wedding could benefit from a few accents in rose gold or peach blush gold, or a dab of gold against teal or green.

Glam ideas for gold wedding decorations: Show off your tablescaping skills!

Gold can be included in the smallest details of your wedding reception. And given that tablescapes are vital to the aesthetics of your wedding, indulge and capture your guests’ attention with a sparkling table decor. Here are some ideas for tablescaping your gold wedding.

Add some dinnerware with gold-colored dye designs. Tablescaping for gold weddings does not have to be about gold charger dishes alone. Spritz some gold on the wedding china patterns or on the glassware rims. For a romantic, modern, and elegant wedding, use white china and gilded tablecloth or table runners.

Without a doubt, centerpieces are the focal point of every wedding. The combination of flowers and their design truly impact the receptions’ decor. Give your centerpieces a golden touch with flowers, vases or by adding bottles of wine painted in gold. Mix in some gold and pink for a softer, high-end look. Go tall for an elegant feel or go low surrounded by candles for a romantic setting. Tuscan-style centerpieces are perfect for a gold wedding. Black candles on golden candlesticks can be a hit.

Gold weddings lend themselves to amazing color combinations

Gold is quite easy to combine. Like we mentioned earlier, gold can be used as a wildcard or as the main attraction in combination with other colors. Gold goes well with navy, lilac, mint, pink, teal, emerald, green, ruby red, black or white. Your chosen combination will depend on your wedding style.

For a spring wedding, choose warm tones like corals and peach to complement your golden wedding decor. Glam things up with purple with touches of green or gold, ruby red and black. Generous, deep colors such as plum and carmine red flourish with metallic accents of gold, brass and copper. Ornamental ensembles and shimmering, classy materials are eye-catching. Superb, rich colors like plum and crimson abound with metallic gold elements.

Latte brown, peach, white and gold are perfect for a fall wedding. Gold and navy are a classic that denotes elegance. Pink and gold or rose gold will give your wedding a delicate, upscale and chic look. The absolute latest trend is to go 100% metallic as it makes for a very easy combination of different golden and copper tones.

Planning Barn Weddings: Tips & Facts That’ll Keep You Up At Night

If we look at the forecasting trends, barn weddings are totally “in” for next year and the next. Discover all you need to know to host a barn wedding and be inspired by these 45+ deliciously lavish barn wedding ideas.

Barn Weddings: All you need to know

Barn Weddings

There is something about barn weddings. It’s not just that they are so country and rustic but they offer a lofty space to throw a bash that can go from simple to the most extravagant.

A barn’s vaulted ceilings and wooden beams tempt us to add lights, chandeliers and hanging centerpieces. Decorating barn weddings can be a dream come true, but fool yourself not, barn weddings are expensive.

Barn Weddings: What to take into consideration

So it’s not all rosy on the barn wedding’s front. The first thing to consider when thinking about hosting one is that, contrary to popular belief, barn weddings are expensive.

If your wedding venue utilizes an authentic barn, not one built for weddings and events where they take care of everything (and I mean everything), it may lack some of the bare necessities. These can be an unforeseen additional expense typical of these wedding venues. Here are some examples.

Electricity

First of all, your caterer, the band or DJ and your lights will need access to electrical outlets. You will need three dedicated circuits, as to not blow out the power for the entire reception. Make sure the barn is wired for the occasion or rent a generator.

Heating and Cooling

Next, you will probably want keep your guests cool or warm depending on when you host your wedding. It’s best to host barn weddings in the spring or the fall months as barns may not have heat or air conditioning. Therefore, the rental of the needed equipment is another expense to consider.

Ensure the roof doesn’t have any leaks, wood is not rotting, etc. Keep an eye out for any items in need of general repair or attention. Ensure these will be taken care of way prior to the wedding date.

Bathroom accommodations

Unless your wedding venue comes facility ready, and if you don’t want your abuela using the outhouse, start making some calls to porta-potty vendors. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the options they can offer, some even have sinks! If you are feeling fancy, you can rent a tent that covers the bathrooms so they blend with the barn. Maybe hire a bathroom attendant for toilet paper refills, soap and to keep everything clean. What’s a few more items to add to the wedding budget, right? 😉

Legal stuff

Next, depending on the barn, you may need a license and insurance to be open to the public. You should also look into sound ordinances. Even though the barn may be remote, sound ordinances do apply. They will affect your music volume and the wedding schedule.

Guest transportation

As it is usual in the countryside, parking is a long ways from the barn. Think about special transportation arrangements from the parking to the venue for your guests.

Finally, if you took the high road and booked a barn that generally hosts weddings, their owners may have the necessary rentals handy and a list of what else you’ll need. If not, your best bet is to work with a wedding planner who specializes in barn weddings.

Barn wedding ideas that will make you say yes to them once over

It’s mistakenly understood that barn weddings can only be rustic or country themed. Most wedding themes go well with a barn. Go minimalistic or go vintage. You can even go rustic glam, boho chic or extremely whimsical!

Consider holding the reception outdoors. Place the tables outside the barn and the dance floor and bar inside of it. Therefore, when it gets cool outside, your guests have a warmer place where to have fun.

Another idea to consider is celebrating the religious ceremony inside of the barn. Then you can eat outside and party again inside. This will give you enough time to remove the chairs from the ceremony and redecorate this unique space.

Will the White Wedding Dress Tradition continue?

Dreamy beachy boho white wedding dress

Dreamy beachy boho white wedding dress.

Did you know that the white wedding dress as a symbol of the bride’s chastity and purity is barely 100 years old? Reviewing the history of the wedding dress may help you decide which side you are on.  While we do so, let’s get inspired by gorgeous white wedding dress designs and non-white but equally divine ones! 😉

Weddings today are a unique expression of the couple’s personalities. As such, brides must decide in favor of or against the famous white wedding dress tradition. A tradition that started in the 1920s when brides began to choose a white wedding gown as a symbol of purity and chastity. Before this, marriage was a business transaction, the union of two families, two fortunes; sometimes powerful, sometimes not powerful at all. The bride’s dress represented the whole family and sometimes entire countries and as such, it needed to show their wealth. The richer the family, the more fabric and more colors (or the whiter) the wedding dress had to be. Hand dyed fabrics meant that the family had the means to afford them. Also, in those days, the process of bleaching fabric was tremendously expensive and, therefore, there was no way to keep it clean. The dress could only be worn once. All of this represented wealth and power.

The meaning of purity for the white wedding dress started as a tradition barely 100 years ago. Despite being the color of choice for most brides, brides also choose different shades of white such as ivory, ecru, eggshell and others that are more favorable to the female figure. Nowadays, designers incorporate color in their collections and brides have started to add a pop of color in the details, shoes and accessories to accompany the traditional white wedding dress. I am certain that in five to seven years, wedding dresses in colors other than white will be seen not as an act of rebellion but as an everyday occurrence. And then brides shall be free to choose their dresses in their favorite color, whatever it might be.

The Interesting Story of the White Wedding Dress

In 1559, Mary Queen of Scots dressed in white for her wedding to Francis Dauphin of France, not because it symbolized purity, but because white is the color of mourning in France. It was a way for her to show how she felt about the union.

In 1840, Queen Victoria married in a white wedding dress because she wanted to use her favorite piece of white lace on it. Her “selfie” of the time, her portrait, became famous and a symbol of what’s fashionable. From then on all brides wanted to wear a white wedding dress to mimic the Queen’s display of wealth. Let’s remember that in those days a white wedding dress was impossible to keep clean and could be used once, which made them extremely expensive. Only the very rich could marry in a white wedding dress.

In the 1920s, the white wedding dress started to be seen as a symbol of purity and chastity.

Using another color, was considered bold and rebellious. Examples of this are the purple wedding gown designed by Vivienne Westwood Dita Von Teese, the famous burlesque dancer worn at her wedding with Marilyn Manson, or Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon who married in pink. Every year, more and more designers, like Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang, add non-traditional bride dresses to their collections, marking a radical movement in the conservative industry of wedding gowns.

But what’s really important to keep in mind is that equality and respect are what really matter in a marriage and not what you wear at your wedding. So, feel free to choose the wedding dress that pleases you the most and that best represents you for who you are!
