So that you can have your pick from the most popular wedding dress styles available, the tips and tricks below are just for you.
There’s more to wine bottles than meets the eye. Besides serving delicious wine, they can also be repurposed into charming vases for fresh flowers or used as stands for tapered candles and placed in the center of your outdoor dining furniture as centerpieces.
A popular idea for upcycling bottles is to spray them with metallic paint. Such as rose gold or silver. Or you could add some glitz and glam to your table by covering each bottle head to toe in glitter. Experiment with a few empty bottles, and find out what fits your wedding theme.
The perfect way to light up your wedding ceremony or evening party is by creating tin can lanterns.
It’s likely you or people you know dispose of tin cans a lot. So why not ask your friends to keep hold of them and begin practicing and creating designs to use them as decor around the garden.
To create tin lanterns, you need to do the following.
- Wash the cans and think of designs you want to add.
- Pop your tins filled with water into the freeze.
- Once frozen, take them out of the freezer, and add your stenciled drawing (like stars, a letter per can, reading ‘Love’ etc.).
- Put something supportive under your tin can, like a towel, and hammer small holes with a nail along the stencil.
- Rinse the ice block out with hot water and add your tea light.
You can add some paint or glitter to the outside too if you like!
To transform your garden space into a wedding venue and create a romantic setting for you and your partner to wed, why not decorate a garden arch.
Ask your family or friends if they may have one you can use and decorate. If it’s not already dressed in flowers, you’ll have the freedom to drape it with the decor of your choosing.
You could weave faux flowers and greenery and add lights to the frame if you wish. Upcycling a garden arch is an inexpensive yet beautiful piece of decor to add to your backyard wedding.
If you love repurposing things you own, or otherwise stuff that would usually go to waste. Or if you enjoy putting your creativity to use. Repurposing and creating decor for your wedding is a fun and affordable way to jazz up your big day. While also leaving more money in the wedding budget for you to buy the dress of your dreams.
