{Megan’s Request}
I need the biggest help with my centerpieces. I originally wanted to do a floating candle piece, but I couldn’t find a vase for a decent price and we couldn’t get the right flowers for the right price to float/stay properly. Now I’m collecting wine bottles to put candles in. We’re having about 20 tables so under $10/table is a must. The wedding is in a gorgeous over sized barn with a field of sunflowers in the back, so I want to keep everything very natural with twine, burlap, etc, yet I want it to look very elegant. I want an arrangement idea for the barn (it has a big hay hook in the rafters), but we cant figure out how to incorporate it with the flowers. My favorite flowers are lilies (any kind) and we’re incorporating sunflowers of every color in with everything. our colors are plum and a dark teal green. Thanks much!!!

{Megan’s Centerpiece Details}
Gathering floral containers from home, such as, mason jar, glasses,or vases, is the best way to budget for your wedding centerpieces.  The two creations via the Trendy Bride features a simple collection of Violet~Plum Ranunculus, Scabiosa Buds, Sunflowers, Cream~White Gerbera, and Peacock Feathers.  The second photo is a mixture of glasses, jars and vases wrapped in burlap and filled with Votive Candles.  Votive Candles and a Table Runner are an inexpensive way to illuminate and add elegance to any wedding.   Ideas for decorating the ceiling, are simple twinkling Lights(saved from Christmas), Tulle Streamers, and Sunflower Kissing Balls.  To recreate the inspiration photo below, you can attach flowers to a Twig Garland or make a simple natural Branch frame.  Add Silk Flowers and Greenery and it is complete.  When planning a rustic wedding, mix in natural elements like branches, leaves, thistle and wildflowers to help differ the cost.

  1. Love it! Hadn’t thought of using peacock feathers before – that will definitely help in tying all of the colors together. Thank you so much for explaining how to do the floral arrangement in the hay fork! This will help my mom and I so much with our decorating!!

    1. Megan, I thought the peacock feathers tie your colors together and add elegance to simple flowers. I wish you the best in the rest of your wedding planning and I thank you for letting me be a part of it. Good Luck, Mindy
