by - June 15, 2018

Hello, welcome again!

Now, when it comes to the decorations you can buy them or you can make them all depending on what you want. In  my case I did a DIY wedding, the centerpieces, the welcome message, the photo spot, and everything I need it to decorate.  I'm going to share with you now the things that I did to planning my wedding. First of all I did an extensive list with all the things that I needed to start making the decorations but first I visualize and put all my thoughts together so I could know what I need to buy. Here is a wedding notebook:


Once I wrote and draw everything, I start to delegate task to make sure everything was covered. Like I said in the Part A of the post, we need the help of other people if we want that everything be perfect. Lets start with the decorations, I separate the decoration by sections and tables. 


A. Ceremony

1. tablecloth
2. Documents

1. Lights

1. Rocks
2. Petals

The venue of my wedding was a restaurant in the beach, the ceremony was on the beach part and the reception was in the dinner area. For the ceremony we used a arch, the restaurant already had lights decorating the area so I just used them and put some more lights in the arch and put the curtains and flowers (when I said "I", mean my sister haha). The flower arrangement was made with artificial flowers. My sister use a carton board to make the form of the arrangement and the use glue to put them together. Here is the one I used on my wedding and a variety of flowers arch that you can use:
