Budget Series: Romantic Garden Wedding

written by Marina Strong August 24, 2012

Welcome to day two of our Budget Series! If you missed yesterday’s Vintage post, you can see it here… Budget Series: Vintage Wedding. But, today, we are going to show you a Soft and Romantic Garden Wedding. This look is classic and sweet, and can work in any setting, from a formal church to a casual backyard wedding. This inspiration will give you a Bridal Bouquet, 2 Bridesmaids Bouquets, 2 Mini Bouquets, 1 Flower Girl Pomander/Kissing Ball, 5 Boutonnieres, 2 Altar/Ceremony Arrangements, and 8 Centerpieces. And once again, you can make all this for $351 (with the 5% discount that you can ask us for)! Let’s do this!

(Note: This look can be done in White, White & Pink, Yellow, Orange, Red, Peach, Purple/Lavender or Green. Just about any color or combination you can think of! Just choose your favorite colors.)

Bridal Bouquet:

The Bridal Bouquet is a sweet and simple bouquet of 25 Roses. Wrap with a neutral or coordinating ribbon. If you need a tutorial on how to make a bouquet, check out YouTube or the Flower School Video Library for some great videos!

 

Bridesmaids Bouquets:

Romantic Bridesmaids Bouquets

To create two Bridesmaids Bouquets you will use 15 Roses and 3 stems Alstroemeria in each one. Finish with ribbon or fabric of your choice.

For the Men in your life (or Bridal party), you can make 5 Boutonnieres,  for the Groom, 2 Groomsmen, and 2 Dads. Each Boutonniere should contain 1 Rose each. If you want to add a little something to make the Groom stand out, you could add in a sprig of Baby’s Breath or some greenery from the Roses or Alstroemeria.

 

Flower Girl:

This soft and sweet Pomander, also known as a Kissing Ball, would be so cute for a Flower Girl or Junior Bridesmaid. Using a small round wet oasis foam, simply fill in with sprigs of Baby’s Breath. Check out how to create a pomander in this post, DIY Wedding Flower Project: Create Floral Pomander Balls in 5 Steps.

For the Mom’s you can create mini-bouquets. I personally love the mini-bouquets, as they are much easier to create for most DIY Brides. Use 3 stems of Alstroemeria wrapped in a ribbon for each mini bouquet. Simple, sweet and easy.

 

Altar/Ceremony Arrangements:

Romantic Altar Arrangements

For these two Altar or Ceremony Arrangements height is key! Violet’s tip is to use tall ‘French market” style vases or a flaring glass vase to accentuate the cloud-like masses of Baby’s Breath & create drama with height. Use 2 bunches of Baby’s Breath in each arrangement. Baby’s Breath can look very elegant  and romantic when used alone in bunches like this!

 

Centerpieces:

Romantic Centerpieces

You can create 8 centerpieces, but there are two ways you could do this. To create a more modern look, use 3 different sized containers (for each centerpiece) and put each type of flower in one container. Roses in one, Alstroemeria in another , and then Baby’s Breath in the last. Or, to create a more garden like look, use one larger container and mix the flowers. Each centerpiece can contain 10 stems Alstroemeria, 5 Roses, 1/2 bunch Baby’s Breath. Violet says that silver, mercury glass, and bronze/gold containers and vases all work well with this look.

There you have it. A whole Romantic Garden Wedding for around $350!  Stay tuned for more to come in our Budget Series… 🙂
