Are you endeavoring to make your own flowers for your wedding? Well then, you must be nuts. I myself am in that same boat. I've scoured the internet looking for coffee filter flower tutorials. I've found some good ones, and I've sort of combined them all into my own method. Let me tell you how I made these, because I've made about 24,145 of them, and I want you to join me in madness. Here we go…
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of diy bouquet posts.
First we've got midway games, fire performances, and balloon animals. Then there's an underground cold war museum bunker, Fallout-themed decor, and post-apocalyptic catering. It's a fusion of carnival and the apocalypse that we can totally get behind! That doesn't even cover the fabulously redesigned heirloom dress and 3D-printed rings. And just wait until you see what happened with the helicopter ring delivery.
Paper flowers, local friendors, and a love for their hometown make this wedding hit home. Plus, this bride took two vintage dresses and made her own dove grey dream dress with 70 years of history. And we will all learn at least one thing from this wedding: keep the dance floor splits to a minimum or face the crotch consequences!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a vintage dress, a huge homemade Dalek (and mini flower girl Dalek!), and a wedding guide made for us to "not panic!" It's a sci-fi wedding… so say us all!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a pair with a penchant for books, comics, and of course, the 10th Doctor! The groom even wore his signature suit. They both wore Chucks, carried Sonic Screwdrivers, and had a lovely handfasting to boot.
When a crocodile invites himself to the wedding, you pretty much have to show him a good time… or else! And these two totally did that with their South African dishes and Amarula, the bride's awesome gossamer wings, the Harry Potter ring book, and the sweet wine box ceremony. Check out the rest of the wedding and keep an eye out for various fauna that might be on the loose.
The bouquets were made from pages of Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, and Red Riding Hood. The cake topper was a miniature zombie family. The place cards were actual TOE TAGS! And then… in classic horror movie style, all the lights went out during the reception! It wasn't intentional, but that is one way to spook out your guests at a Halloween wedding. Just wait until you see what movie prop they used as a guest book!
These two super gamers embraced Super Mario for a pretty damned super, 8-bit-inspired wedding! We're talking a Mario photo booth complete with props, fire flower bouquets, homemade cupcakes, and even the bride's kick-ass 1-Up nails! Plus, you'll love their card box. Let's just say it involves a piranha plant and some special effect noises.
We love us some rockabilly, and we also love it when there's a chic tulle headpiece, flash tattoo decor, a squee-worthy first dance, and our own Rev. D presiding! And you'll love the traditional Polish-Slovak bridal dance that made the groom prove he will move mountains (of people!) to get to his bride.
Rachel and Rich's photographer, Pilster Photography, described Rachel as "the queen of DIY" so I know some of y'all are going to love this super happy celebration. These two had a limited budget and pulled together a day that radiates sunshine and giggles — complete with having their dog come along for the day.
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got an unexpectedly steampunk wedding with pumpkin wine chillers, kilts, and a fabulous handfasting. Oh, and their favorite moment is one of those that will totally make you say "awww."
