DIY: Wedding Edible Arrangements

Welcome to the year of DIY weddings!  So many brides this year are having DIY weddings where almost everything at the wedding is handmade.  If you have the free time to make many of the details of the wedding, you can end up saving lots of money.  If you don’t have endless amounts of time, you may need to pick and choose which items you will make versus which items to buy.  One easy way to save money is to make your own table centerpieces for the reception. An easy, yet creative, DIY centerpiece involves using edible materials.  Here are some edible arrangements I can’t wait to hear your opinion on!

One of the most common edible arrangements involve using fruit. A simple bowl full of lemons, apples or pears can add some color to the tables at a fraction of the cost of fresh flowers.

Who knew using grapes as a table centerpiece could look so beautiful paired with a few fresh flowers?

Or consider using vegetables!  Use asparagus, string beans and artichokes as candle holders for a simple, elegant look.

For a rustic wedding, I love the idea of using fresh herbs as table centerpieces!

 If you are a baker at heart, you can make mini cakes, pies or cookies to use as table centerpieces!

For a casual wedding you can even think about using candy!  Put colorful candy in glass jars or make candy or lollipop topiary’s!  I’m not sure about the candy centerpiece idea but for the right bride this might be the perfect idea!
