A Beautiful DIY Wedding!!!

Regardless of a wedding’s budget, you can always have a beautiful wedding.  Such is the case with Ashley & Jon.

Starting with the personal flowers, the bride and her bridesmaids had a little Bouquet making Party.  Ashley purchased flowers from a wholesale flower outlet and then with instructions from the provider and us, they made the bouquets, boutonnieres and mothers flowers.  They turned out so nicely and offered a substantial cost savings. 

Ashley set her wedding theme as Winter Wonderland ~ which for a Florida wedding is unique in any case.  Her color palette was royal blue, silver and white.  Because she was going to provide all of the decor herself, Ashley began searching for items that would fit into her theme a year in advance.  She found adorable candle stands and small blue and silver ornaments.  To give the idea of snow, she used white sparkly material which was placed in the center of the family style tables on top of which the candelabra and ornaments were placed.  She used blue table cloths for linens.  To enhance the look of the cake and Sweetheart Tables, we provided gorgeous linens from Chair Covers and Linens.  These linens added an extra  special touch to the room and pulled the look together.

The room was further enhanced with blue and silver garland and silver snowflakes!  We even had a Christmas Tree decorated in the same color pattern!  Even though it was 80 degrees outside, guests could get the sense of being in a Winter Wonderland when they entered the reception.

To involve the guests and create a lasting memory, a “photo booth” was set-up where guests could don fun items or just be themself while a photo was taken that will be placed in the Guest Book next to their personal message. 

The guests feasted on pork loin, roasted red potatoes, green beans, macaroni and cheese, rolls and several other items. 

Boxes of candy mints were placed at each guests seat as favors while bowls of M&M’s were on each table for guests to enjoy throughout the reception.

The Matron of Honor and one of the groomsmen offered meaningful toasts to the couple. 

When the time came for the specialty dances, the bride and groom took the floor dancing to “From this Moment” by Shania Twain.  For a sweet twist, the bride then had a dance with her mom to “Mama’s Song” by Carrie Underwood.  The groom and his mom entered the same song half-way through.  To get the crowd on their feet, the Wedding Party was asked to get on the dance floor while the “Theme from Friends” played as all guests were then invited to join in the party.

The couple departed through a path of their family and friends blowing bubbles to wish them well.  As they drove away, they were still smiling after being surrounded by all of the love of those who celebrated their special day with them.

We wish Ashley & Jon a lifetime of Happiness!!!!
