Handmade Wedding Décor: Centrepieces

If you’re due to tie the knot then you will have no doubt thought about décor. Whilst there’s not as much hype on wedding décor as there is on the dress, the venue and the food, it’s certainly not an aspect that should be overlooked.Centrepieces can really set off a room, giving it those much needed finishing touches, and a lack of these can leave wedding reception tables looking impersonal. However, sometimes, couples choose to skimp on centrepieces, not out of want but due to cost, but have you ever thought about making your own? Here you can learn how to create gorgeous centrepieces for your big day.

 Now this is really easy, so if you’re worried that you’re not very creative then fear no more. Simply select your favourite flowers and set them adrift in bowls filled with water, along with pretty floating candles.

 

The size of the bowls you use is down to personal preference; perhaps you’d prefer to use large serving bowls to create statement centrepieces or for a minimalist look, use smaller bowls. You’ll have yourself beautiful centrepieces that take barely any time to put together and are not going to dent your bank balance.

 To really put a stamp on your special day, why not etch your initials (bride and groom) onto glass vases? This will not only add a truly personal touch, it’s something different too. Most weddings have flowers in vases but are these vases usually personalised? Probably not. Your wedding guests will absolutely love this unique finish on a plain glass vase.

 

Here’s how you do it:

1. Align scrapbooking letters across the vases and using masking tape, mark off a rectangle around each letter.

2. Etch around each letter following the directions on the etching cream

3. Fill the custom-made vases with stunning flowers
