I wanted the ceremony site to be decorated very simply. We had one large flower centerpiece surrounded by 2 large ferns and 2 small ferns. There were also 2 larger Boston ferns near the stairs.
For the aisle markers I decided (thanks H for the suggestion!) to make tissue paper pom-poms. I used Martha Stewart's Online DIY (which can be found here). They are SUPER easy to make and really cute to hang for any occasion! A friend of mine made lots of them to decorate at her own wedding and I really enjoyed them!!
3. Take floral wire (or really strong string) and place it in the center of the folds and twist/tie it together tightly.
4. Trim the ends of the paper however you want: round or pointed (arrow-like).
5. Place the folds where you can see all of them and pull the end corners toward the center. Then separate each sheet individually to give the pom-pom it's shape.
6. And ta-da! The pom-pom is finished! Use fishing line (or whatever string you want) and tie it around the center for hanging.
The 8 small white ones in the front were the ones that I made for the Aisle Markers:
They would be great decorations for a birthday party, shower, or just for fun!!
Last, but not least, today marks the one month anniversary of marriage to my wonderful husband!!!
I love you dear!
