The time has finally arrived, I am getting married today!
In 7 hours exactly I will be walking down the aisle and marrying my best friend. To be honest, it feels absolutely surreal. We’ve been planning this wedding for almost 2 years and it just never felt like this day would actually come. As we organized our event we quickly realized that to stay within budget we’d have to DIY almost all of our decor. So, for today’s Fall Fun post, I figured I’d give you a little sneak peek of our centerpieces!
Anyone that has ever planned a wedding or another event knows how expensive flowers can be. To get around that cost, I decided to use an artificial Autumnal candle wreath from Hobby Lobby that would sit at the base of a vase. I ended up thrifting the vases for 25 cents each! Being a candle enthusiast, I knew I had to put an LED pillar inside but wasn’t sure how to elevate it. I wanted the overall look to be natural and did a lot of trial and error with a variety of fillers. The end result was actually using a bag of dry beans that matched the leaves perfectly.
To give the centerpiece a little more texture, I tied a bit of twine around the top of the vase which helped make it feel slightly more rustic too. Overall, these DIY centerpieces only cost $8 each to make! Personally, I think a simple fall DIY like this would look beautiful in anybody’s home and I can’t wait to use them in my dining room after today!

Color me impressed Michelle. I was one of those who paid exorbitantly for real flower centerpieces and would have likely had a breakdown if I attempted to make my own, well done on these. They are rustic, lovely, warm, timeless and perfect, just as I’m sure the entire design and day was for you. Congrats and best wishes on a lifetime of happiness:) <3<3
Congratulations, Michelle! I hope your special day was everything that the two of you hoped it would be! I love what you did with your centerpieces. I dig the rustic, cozy vibe of them, and of course the pillar. Thanks for sharing the DIY.
Congratulations!! I hope your wedding was everything you wanted and more but most of all a beautiful joining of two lives. I love your centerpieces! The glass shape is very cool… reminds me of an old time milk jug. <3
Beautiful! I hope you had a wonderful day and are off enjoying a fabulous honeymoon right now. 🙂
