Vintage Rustic Wedding Floral + Decor

As mentioned earlier in the week, the inspiration this week focuses around a Vintage Rustic affair.
I like the Vintage Rustic aesthetic because to me, it romanticizes normal rustic decor…giving it a boost of loveliness for a wedding. I assembled some centerpiece + decor ideas + inspiration below.

I will highlight a few:
- looking for a centerpiece but not keen on traditional favors? The idea is not new but is a lovely one: use mini potted plants + min floral arrangements for place cards and/or favors. When grouped together, they can make a cute little centerpiece.

- for a more rustic ring bearer pillow, see this one from Luckey U.

- I spotted this DIY rustic cake stand on from Once Wed via Simply Natural.

- to fill that space if you are going light on the flowers, look into Lanterns like those below from Pottery Barn or even mini lanterns + mini centerpieces like in this photo taken by from Mel Barlow.

Inspiration of the Week: Beautiful Centerpieces

This week’s inspiration [of the week] ideas focus on beautiful centerpieces-  centerpieces in different trendsetting colors schemes. There will be no all-white arrangements here…

Today: coral and green. I love that this color has been big this year because that was my color scheme almost 2 years ago! Oh, how time flies. Needless to say, I love it when done right. I think it is also important to add a tertiary color as well. Many florists will agree for reception centerpieces, to add depth like in the lovely third and fourth centerpieces. But are these first two centerpieces great or what?

Today: Out of the Box Centerpieces…

So, it may not be a surprise that I love centerpieces. For my wedding, centerpieces were definitely the thing I was most wishy-washy on because of the endless possibilities. I decided on low centerpieces to allow people to better talk to one another and see each other – that was important to me. Centerpieces don’t have to be tall or large to grab the attention of your guests…

Check out today’s out of the box centerpiece inspiration via my guest blog post at the Wishpot Wedding Blog.

Here’s a teaser:

Because I Love Fonts + This Design….

Wow. Talk about out of the box design…
Instead of using typical centerpieces for a gala celebrating the Metropolitan Opera’s 125th year anniversary, David Stark Design and Production decorated the space using various graphics + fonts and look at the result…
