DIY Centerpieces by Event Jubilee

A while back, we asked all of you to let us know what you'd like to see more of in 2009. One of the most requested ideas was DIY! So, with my forever quest  to feature DIY projects that are stylish, chic and affordable, I recruited the help of some of our Little Black Book event planners and florist.

We've collected a fabulous bunch of gorgeous and totally easy DIY centerpiece ideas that we are so excited...

Today's featured Little Black Book Photographer is Amanda Kraft, an amazing talent in Pennsylvania. But as you all know, amazing photographers almost ALWAYS have the itch to travel ... pretty much anywhere! Seriously, always keep that in the back of your mind. If you see a photographer's work (or a cinematographer or pretty much any other wedding professional mentioned...

I know that there are brides who are trying so hard to reconcile their love of chic, beautiful details with their thinning budgets. So I thought this would be a great idea! Well, we got a couple of really beautiful ideas for DIY centerpieces that I had to share with you! This...

Wedding Centerpieces, VII

I've been to so many weddings where the flowers take center stage. And to be honest, it's pretty great to see gorgeous blooms tucked in every corner, dripping off every detail. BUT, that type of decor isn't always in the budget, especially these days. So today, we are chatting about centerpieces that are gorgeous, but in just about every example, they are also largely affordable or DIY-able.

One way to really trim your budget is to hop on the teeny-tiny vases trend. Tons of perfect...

Another really great way to bring textures, colors and even prints into your wedding style is to use a box to house your flowers. Whether it's a great old wooden box that you scored at a flea market or paper boxes covered in your favorite fabric, a box will add an unexpected touch to your decor that will really go a long way...

Wedding Centerpieces, V

One of my very favorite ways to add a punch of color to your decor is through fabulously chic, colored vases. Whether they are rich in golds and silvers or they are a bit more funky in teal blues and pinks, this collection of colored containers should inspire you to think creatively when designing your centerpieces...

Whites. There is something so beautiful about an all white palette. It just screams elegance and sophistication. Bring in some natural greens and a sweet feminine approach and the result is, well...fabulous.

Wedding Centerpieces

People always ask me how I choose the weddings and ideas that I write about on Style Me Pretty. The truth is, it happens way more organically than many people realize. I usually start thinking about the next day's posts at night, though I don't solidify anything until the morning that it goes live. And oftentimes, I don't have anything at all planned for the day when I wake up in the morning.

Which was exactly the case today. I am still playing catch-up from being away and real...

DIY From Around the Blogs, IV

If you are at all crafty, you probably love everything about the blog How About Orange. I would say that I am one part crafty, one part totally antsy...love the idea of DIY, but I don't always have the patience to create every project. So, what I love about these vases on How About Orange is that you wouldn't have to create 200 of them to make an impact. Just 3-4 for each table would be completely perfect!

I'm always thinking about what a Hatch Inspired table would look like. While I could come up with 100 different designs, my first of many Hatch inspired tables began by using elements we like to consider Hatch signature elements.  From mini nests, moss and tree...

Real Wedding: Karrie & Brian

There are three reasons why I am completely obsessed with today's real wedding feature. First, the photographer is one of my favorite Little Black Book members, Amy Squires...her work is so pretty, I just love to brag on her behalf.

The second reason is that the bride, Karrie, is launching a new custom invitation business, called...

Color Palettes Questions – Peach or Orange?

Another reader question....I’m getting married in April 2009 and wanted to use orange and white for my wedding. However, after changing from a white dress to a different colored dress — the official name of the color is shell — I’m wondering if the bright orange is still a good choice. I was thinking perhaps a peach color might work better but I’m at a loss. Any ideas?

Here is a pic of the dress that this reader has chosen...

What do you think...does orange...

Do-It-Yourself Wedding Projects

I am so excited to feature these DIY projects. These flowers are absolutely amazing and so professional... To Make the Flower Arrangements... I purchased most of our flowers from Costco. The centerpieces were created using large square vases purchased at IKEA. The space between the stems and the vases were filled with limes, then with pink, green and white flowers. We made the centerpieces the night before then placed them outside in the shade. To Make the Pink Table Runners...
