Is anyone making their own table decorations? any tips grateful please? thanks in advance :)
Keep them simple and use your bridesmaid colours :)
I made mine i had a fishbowl with glitter in. Pine cones. My flowers and love heart fairy lights xxx
I was going to but found it was going to cost more. I saved on money and time by just hiring a venue dresser. Plus I didnt have the hassle of taking home a load of stuff I'm never going to use again xx
Yes I’m making mine! I’ve got loads of jam jars from Hobbycraft and loads of lace and ribbon that’s matching my bridesmaids and table runners and then just little candles. I’m also asking a tree surgeon very nicely if he’ll be able to help out for the rustic feel!
We have had a tree cut down in our garden so going to cut that in to discs and been collecting old jam jars so we will just be paying for the lace to stick to the jars. Our florist is then putting flowers in the jam jars costing £12 a table
We're getting married by the sea and are using large sea shells with air plants in them. The nice thing is that you can make them up well in advance saving the extra stress closer to the day :)
Yes! We're going to have a travel theme so some miniature models from various places, paper flowers made from old maps in gin bottles recycled from someone else's wedding, and probably some more stuff still to be decided! Doesn't need to be too complicated or full on to look good
eBay is your friend if you have time, my wedding is 2020 and I’m already ordering foam flowers from China 🙂
We are doubling up some sweet treats with centre pieces.... this is the idea behind it... going to have the ribbon in our wedding colours

Flowers and bouquets from paper
Depends on what you want, im trying not to use anything we wouldn’t use again and as we spend so much time in our garden im decorating terracotta plant pots planting up some flowers and will use them as my centre pieces, along the idea pf this x
Depends what your after decoration wise but here's a few im trying for my wedding x
I made my own last year simple but pretty. Vases and tea light holders from ikea and rest from eBay.
I got bottles from.local pub sprayed them silver put 2 roses in colour of bridesmaid dresses cost me less than 10.00 for 12 tables
Am makin my own centrepieces for my wedding in sept 2020 x
Keep simple. We collected glass jars for about 6 months. And had some flowers in. Some floating candles in another and some like scrabble letters for a crossword left on the table. My MIL sorted it for us basically as she likes crafty things like that. Also had some organza runners and a couple of bunting banners.
I am making mine, small fish bowls with beads and floating candle cheap but effective x
We are using empty gin bottles with paper flowers made from our favourite books xx
Ikea lanterns and some wood slabs
I've made my own. made different jars like this.
