Wedding Backdrop With White Chiffon and Fairy Lights

This video is going to be about making a beautiful wedding backdrop! Let's start with making the floral wreaths. I used wood hoops. I had one large one, and then I went down a size, and I got two of those. Here are some of the flowers I chose, very soft pink.

Look at this one; I found one with pearls inside, and some of the petals were tulle. Here we have some lamb's ear, some eucalyptus, and then what I really loved was the pearl and gold stems. This will add some elegance and bling to the design.

So you want to take the hoops apart and just use the inside of the hoop. Now, I'm ready to add the eucalyptus. That's the first thing I'm gonna do, and this one came in a bundle. So, I'm gonna snip just a few of them off and begin adding them to the hoop.

Boxwood Hedge Wedding Backdrop

I recently did an artificial boxwood hedge wedding backdrop using these amazing panels that I got from amazon - I love the way that they came packaged & absolutely loved this greenery faux wall!

I'm gonna show you guys how to DIY it so let's get started! The first thing you want to do is to remove them from the boxes in order to let them regain their original shapes.

I used these zip ties that were included in the boxes to zip tie all of the individual panels together and this was super simple - you just lay out the shape that you want & the height the, width that you want and then once you get that you just flip the panels over where they are and just simply zip tie them together!

Today we are making these fun paper flowers! I'm so excited to share this tutorial with you because it is perfect for decorating, especially if you want to make your own wedding backdrop.

I will teach you all of my tips and tricks on how to hang them on the wall to make them look beautiful, and I'll even share what type of materials you'll need to get started!

In this tutorial, I'm going to be showing you two different flowers. First off, you have this oversized rose with the closed bed, and I'll also be showing you how to make this open Center. It's made from the exact same pattern piece, but the technique is just a little bit different.

For this tutorial, you'll need glitter, card stock, a stack of regular card stock, a printed pattern, a dowel, a pen or pencil, a hot glue gun, wire, a cake plate, a pair of wire cutters, hot glue sticks and a pair of scissors!

I love the idea. However, I'm not doing a wedding, mine was in 2010, but what I am doing is coming up with table top ideas for my son's graduation party in May. We decided to move his party closer, to where his old friends and most of our family live, so we are holding his party in a park shelter, holds 100. There is horseshoe, volleyball, a playground, and places for children to play...

Thought I would give this great article a share since June, the wedding month, will soon be here. Voted up.

Thanks for visiting Au fait, great ideas , and what a creative family you have. Yes it is a shame when people have to pay a lot of money for weddings, especially when there are so many ideas out there to be creative and frugal !

You might have to go to the antique shop for film and pay dearly because it's antique! Everything's digital nowadays and it's usually more convenient. Set up a place online where guests can post/share photos from your wedding.

Love these ideas you have. I think if I had to pay 27,000 to get married I wouldn't do it! That's a good down payment on an offspring's college education. But I think making one's own decorations, and doing as much of the other work involved in preparations, as possible etc., is very sensible.

My sister made her own dress, the bridesmaid's dresses, the mother of the bride's dress, my dress, and my other sister made the bridesmaid's head pieces, etc. Flowers for church and table bouquets came from my mother's garden as did some of the vegetables at the dinner. One of my aunts along with my mother and sisters, cousins, and myself prepared veggies for salads. It was a large wedding and a lot of people pitched in to hold down the cost.

My sister has made many wedding and prom dresses so it wasn't a big deal for her at the time. I have made prom dresses, too. They're not all that difficult and you can save 10s or hundreds of dollars if you can sew a simple seam.

Thanks Mary , wow you sound very creative , I also love working shells , they are beautiful !

Mary Hyatt from Florida on November 17, 2014:

One of my daughters got married a year ago, and was on a very limited budget. She loves the beach, so I made favors and table dec. from seashells, etc.

This is a great Hub to help folks save money! Voted UP, and shared.
