Flowers are an essential part of a wedding. The bride has a bouquet of flowers, and many people in the wedding party wear corsages. But there is a lot more to the flower part of a wedding. There are also lots of ways to make the flower decorations yourself. Here are some great wedding flower crafts that you can do for your wedding.
For a centerpiece, you can make a flower arrangement with candles. They can be tall or short candles. Use flowers that you love and are part of the theme for the wedding. You can also include flowers that are in your bridal bouquet. It will help tie everything in together. If you decide to use candles, make sure that you are allowed to light them. Many reception centers won’t allow you to light candles. If you can’t, just don’t light them, and the centerpiece will still look great.
Another great classic centerpiece is to have a bowl of water with flowers floating in them. Use tea lights as well and have them floating in the water. Remember to light the candles after you make sure it is ok to use them. You can either use whole tops of flowers or just the petals. Either way looks wonderful.
