Lindsey & John Wedding, III

Well, before we wrap up our vintage glam wedding post of the day, I'd like to take a moment and focus on some final details that speak volumes to the style of the entire event!

Carnations, carnations, carnations! Yep, that's right, gorgeous, stunning, enormous carnation arrangements. When trying to cut back on floral, try to focus on flowers that go a long way. Carnations and roses are both perfect examples of floral blooms that give you a lot of bang for your buck. I know you have probably long dreamed of having fabulous peonies and hydrangeas at your affair, however there are still many ways of achieving beautiful arrangements on a scaled back budget.

Tip of the day: If you love the lush, romantic, full look of peonies, try to incorporate large open-bloom roses in place of pricey peonies. You'll have a comparable look that's friendlier on your pocket.

If floral is not in your budget at all, try to come up with creative elements that still create a romantic ambiance for your affair. At the end of the day, your guests will be moved and inspired by the overall personal details that encompass your special day, not the floral alone. Lindsey & John created a whimsical touch to their affair on a minimal budget by bringing in large white balloons and white feather boas.

To keep things classy yet playful when incorporating balloons, be sure to use very large balloons (3 ft) as opposed to the standard sizes.

Thanks Lindsey & John for inspiring us with your ├╝ber glamorous wedding!
