If you're just joining us, check out Part 1
and Part 2
of Irina and Ryan's Utah wedding!
Three things I love about this featured wedding's centerpieces.
- They're DIY.
- They put a family member's talents to good use.
- They prove that you don't need extravagant flower arrangements to make a statement.
I love the idea of asking guests for their wishes or advice and the idea has become quite common at welcome tables. Our bride, Irina, used the same concept but made it more personal by creating a centerpiece around the idea.From the bride: "My sister-in-law, Stephanie Long, said she would help with our centerpieces, so I didn't worry about them at all. At the time, she was living in California and working for a design firm as their Creative Director. Our centrepieces were beautiful and unique and the wishes that all our guests wrote out are going to be cherished forever."
