Alright guys, today I want to talk about something VERY important.
We all know that planning a wedding is stressful, whether you’ve just started, are at the finish line, or are no where near even getting engaged, we all get it.
I think that this is very important and is when you should be paying very careful attention to how your fiance reacts to this stress.
The perfect example of this is the movie Bride Wars. Instead of focusing on the main plot and the two women, focus on their grooms.
Your future spouse should not feel as if they don’t know you - when you are stressed, you are still you. No matter how out-of-character you act or what you do, it’s still a version of yourself that will come out often during life. Stress is a part of life. If someone can’t accept you in this state then they don’t deserve you!
Just had to comment on my favorite aspect of that movie. And brag a little that my fiance is the sweetest when it comes to my stress and my breakdowns. We’ve been engaged for a little over two months and I’ve already had 3 breakdowns. But he’s always there and it doesn’t faze him! That’s how it should be!
Hi guys! Time for me to post my first DIY! This is something I’m planning on doing for my wedding! This is what it will look like:
For my wedding I’m going to do all white feathers, but there are tons of colors you can do.
Approx. 28 feathers per centerpiece
1 bouquet holder per centerpiece
1 Glass Effiel Tower vase per centerpiece
The feathers can get REALLY pricey. I would suggest trying Ebay if you have enough time, or Amazon.
I’d also suggest getting different sizes of feathers. But the longer ones will be more expensive. I’d suggest getting some 8-10 inch feathers and some 10-12 inch feathers for the best bang for your buck.
For the bouquet holders, the best prices I’ve seen are at save-on-crafts.com. They are 12 for about $30 including shipping. Most places want about $3-4 each.
For the vases, the best prices I’ve seen are at Amazon. You can get them in different colors, I’d suggest staying away from clear unless you have a way to cover up the stem of the bouquet holder inside the vase.
Making the centerpieces is pretty much the easiest part.
Put the bouquet holders inside the of the vases, if you want you can wrap the stems in tape to keep them sturdy.
Begin at the bottom of the bouquet holder and stick a row of the shortest feathers around the bottom. Work your way up in rows, using the longest feathers at the top.
Put them together a day or two in advance so the feathers have time to settle.
And that’s it! Beautiful centerpieces!
