  2. Paper flowers mean never having to worry about your blooms wilting! You can use these as table decorations or as your entourage’s floral arrangements.

I made them for my sister’s wedding shower (mostly because I was broke) and I still enjoy them on my desk to this day! ? Learn how to make them yourself!

7. Strings of lights, yards of white cloth, and floral accents enhance the mood of an outdoor wedding.

One more snap from yesterday’s rustic wedding scene – less is definitely more when you’re in nature! The talented wedding party DIY’d all floral arrangements, and our team successfully “man-handled” this bolt of cloth purchased by the mother of the bride onto the rustic wood arbor for a romantic ceremony setup! ??Hooray for S&G!!
