Planning Your Wedding

How wonderful! He’s popped the question and you’re engaged to be married!

Congratulations as you take your first steps into your happy future together.

You’re going to be busy over the next few months but don’t panic. There are masses of wedding planning tools out there to help you through every step of the way. If you decide to use a professional wedding planner that’s fine but if you’ve got some time, then plan your wedding yourself and make it a day that’s very personal to you.

The most important thing to do before you start is to set a realistic budget. Work out with your fiancé exactly what you can afford, find out if your parents are happy to contribute and go from there. You really don’t want to start off on married life together with credit card debts and a huge loan to pay for your wedding – family and friends come to your wedding because they love you and want to share your special day with you, not because they want to be impressed.

It’s been a little while since we had a DIY wedding post on Wedbits so today I’m going to share with you how to make giant paper flowers – from a fabulous post I discovered on the blog Green Wedding Shoes.

Giant Paper Flowers Are A Great Wedding Day Prop

These outsize flowers will look great decorating your reception venue. You could use them on your wedding chair backs, to create an archway to walk through, as pew decorations or as photographic props for some fun pictures.

You need very little in the way of materials. The flowers in these shots are hot pink, but of course there is nothing to stop you carrying on your wedding theme and remaking them in tangerine orange, yellow or a softer pink – whatever suits your wedding theme.

You’ll find full instructions to make giant paper flowers here on the Green Wedding Shoes blog.
