If you're currently in the throes of planning your wedding, you know all too well how difficult it can be to strike the balance between quality and affordability. Unfortunately, some of the best items are also the ones that wind up costing you the most.
Instead of shelling out for a lavish floral arrangement, we recommend putting on your thinking cap and creating with your own centerpiece. You may be surprised at just how many ideas you're able to brainstorm.
In the meantime, here are two centerpiece suggestions for those with a green thumb.
Are you an expert when it comes to flowers? If so, all you have to do is research which species are going to be in season and start planting. By the time your wedding rolls around, you'll hopefully be swarmed with gorgeous blooms. Place them inside a porcelain vase and you'll be good to go. Just make sure you save the best ones for the bridal table!
Spice it up
Another option is to start growing fresh herbs in early spring. They're quite easy to take care of and look great when placed in the middle of a table. Place them inside miniature flower pots and encourage your guests to season their dishes as they like. Let's face it - there are few things better than fresh basil on top of a delicious pasta dish.
If your wallet is begging you for a break, tapping into your creative side could be all you need to give your wedding that extra special personal touch you've been longing. Start with the centerpiece and see where your thoughts take you.
