plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Today wraps up my feature of Grace’s wedding.  You can check out the previous posts here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.

In creating the tables scapes and floral arrangements, Grace was looking for something simple and laid back, just like her. She found a planner, Tricia Huddas, who used the team at Garden on the Square to create her simple floral arrangements. Each of the arrangements were placed into jars and bottles from The Paris Market and then laid out on each of the reception tables.

I’m a huge fan of somehow finding a way to reuse the bridesmaids bouquets.  One way to do that is to have empty vases filled with water on the head table.  This allows the girls to place their bouquets in the vases once they arrive to the reception, and voila! You have an instant floral arrangement.

Grace took this to a new level by having her bridesmaids bouquets placed around the base of her wedding cake, an idea that I l-o-v-e, love.

    Love the effect of the bottles. At my brother’s wedding we went around to thrift stores buying the most unique glass bowls we could find to float candles in. It created such interest having the variety around.
