Local Garden Centers

To date, these are probably the cutest and most effective way of decorating your ceremony site yourself. Wrought iron triple hangers as shown here are a perfect way to mark the alter area for your ceremony. Use flowers that have been pre-made or pretty seasonal hanging baskets and you've got the perfect eye-catching area for your nuptials.

Pulling greenery and flowers from your local floral shops, stores and wholesalers is another way of creating simple arrangements that can be placed around your wedding reception. Place small flowering plants in burlap or fabric wraps to go with your wedding theme and you've got something that will double up as favors and/or gifts as well.

Walking through your DIY stores like Lowes or Home Depot, you're sure to find great ideas in the garden section. Garden Centers and Nurseries are full of wrought ironware, trellises, garden urns and ornaments this time of year. You're also sure to find the most gorgeous flowering plants throughout the seasons. Gardenias, Hydrangeas and Rose Bushes are in full abundance right now and all can be replanted into your own home. I like to think that plants that are used during the wedding, should be planted where you can watch it grow with marriage. When you move, you can take clippings or saplings along with you to each location.
