These where mine I brought the birdcage myself from the range and hired the wood logs, then found someone who did artificial flowers and got individual Rose's and brought the candles from home bargains.

I used Bridebook app to help me keep everything organized and they have a good range of suppliers on there too, it's a free app so definitely at least worth trying out

We were getting married in July and we're having our reception at The Beeches and with our surname it seemed natural to have a beach theme. We had mini specials from the chip shop and donuts for main reception. Then a buffet one evening and hired a sweet Cart and sourced our own sweets, mini donuts etc. Made our own centre pieces using jars, sand, shells and lights etc. Everyone was amazed with our wedding and thought we'd spent a lot more than we did

Have a look at my page Stems from Paper. I make paper flowers, and have done centrepieces before. I can do things to suit any budget. Good luck! Xx

Depends on What Theme you got in mind, Yeah, Pinterest is a great website to look That's where I got my idea, we decided on Autumn Fall Wedding, so my invites were Autumn design, and my centerpieces were from the Range, our wedding cake were designed of Autum with fall leaves around it, if you want a cake topper to go with your theme also look at Etsy, but start now, you wouldn't believe how stressful to put the planning all together, even at the last minute, and look for your wedding dress now, Happy Planning,

I decided to make my own centre pieces, using origami paper cranes. I thought they were a bit different, and everyone loved them! Just took quite a long time to make!

Bridebook is your friend! Get the app for free it really helps me get organised. I first thought about what dresses and styles I liked. Then colour schemes. Then once I bought my dress I looked more into BM dresses and the Groom’s side of clothing. Now I’m thinking of hair and centre pieces and stuff. We’ve chosen a band for entertainment and we’re going to think of nice personal touches to add to involve the guests. Good luck. It’ll all come together eventually x

Our centerpieces were cheap. £10 for the mirror, old jam jars covered with scraps of ribbon and net curtain filled with fresh flowers, battery operated string lights off eBay, 6 gin bottles instead of table numbers and mini gin, malibu and vodka for the adult favours and Choc bars for the kids!

My venue provided centrepieces as an optional extra, I just told them the colour theme, my BM dresses were from Amazon and entertainment was DJ recommended by venue
