So you aren’t a fan of flowers…
More and more brides are cutting flowers out of their planning. Whether it is to cut costs, they don’t want flower arrangements to represent their main decor, or it just doesn’t fit their theme & overall style. Whatever the reason might be, we have a solution for you! Below are pictures for different ideas that don’t include an ounce of {real} flowers…Pay attention to adding texture, dimension, coordinating colors and out of the box materials for your wedding decor.

Adding glass bottles in different sizes, colors, shapes and texture will add a lot of dimension to your overall decor! http://www.unitedwithlove.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DIY-Vintage-Inspired-Maryland-Wedding-Glass-Bottle-Centerpiece.png

Paper or fabric flowers tied onto twigs or manzanita branches are very rustic and Anthropologie-esque! http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/darcy-martha-stewart-wedding-idea-of-the-day?sDate=20110117
