Wedding theme ideas: Tips and advice for incorporating a daisy theme
Tips on a planning a beautiful, inexpensive daisy themed wedding.
Nowadays, couples are striving to have the perfect wedding, while adding a unique touch to keep guests entertained. Fortunately, you can have a beautiful daisy themed wedding without starting your marriage with enormous debt. All it takes is a little bit of time, an open imagination, and a lot of trips to the craft store!
Start giving your guests a feel of your theme with your invitations. Many reputable companies have daisies on the invitations. If you choose to make them yourself, they can be very affordable and elegant. Most craft stores and even discount retail chains sell invitation paper. Find a picture of a daisy or an outline of one, position one in each corner of the invitation, and write your information in the center. You’ve suggested the daisy theme while still keeping an elegant invitation.
Your attire can also reflect the daisy theme of your wedding. Of course the bride’s dress is the focal point of guests’ attention. The veil, though, is often an afterthought of brides. This can be easily made to subtly show your love for this wildflower. Buy or make an inexpensive veil from a craft store. A plain veil can usually be found in the wedding section for around twenty dollars. Buy some small daisy appliqués. Sometimes there is a sequin or rhinestone in the center of each flower; this will bring attention to your veil. Simply iron or hot glue the daisies randomly on the plain veil. The result is beautiful!
Of course, daisies and other wildflowers should be used as bouquets and decorations. A suggestion is for the bride’s bouquet to be all white, with the bridesmaids’ being a mixture of colored gerbera daisies. You can even have white daisies dyed to match the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses. A simple white candle can be easily decorated with silk flowers to make a beautiful unity candle for very little cost. The same can be done with toasting flutes and cake serving sets.
At the reception, your place cards can also go along with the daisy theme. These can be made using simple cardstock and a rubber stamp, both available at any craft store. If you are doing most of the receptions work yourself rather than renting a catered facility, daisy shower curtain rings make simple napkin holders. For centerpieces, bouquets of daisies and assorted wildflower fillers can be bought rather inexpensively from most grocery stores. The guests will have the pleasant smells of fresh flowers, and you will have the extra money that is saved from buying traditional centerpieces from a florist. You can save even more money by just using the flowers from the ceremony site. Just ask a friend or loved one to move them for you. Many will be glad to extend the newlywed couple a favor.
In today’s society, there is no such thing as a normal wedding cake. All are different, ranging from traditional all white styles to brightly colored confections. Talk with your baker to pick a style that is right for you. Once the style is picked, gum paste flowers can be added to reflect both your daisy theme and your wedding colors. The result is a beautiful cake that has edible decorations. Guests will be impressed.
The key to a tasteful daisy themed wedding is a lot of attention to detail. Without overdoing it, you can show your guests your love for this simple flower. Enjoy the planning and have fun with it. You don’t have to break your budget to have an elegant wedding.
