Bridal Talk Tuesday - Ceremony Decor Inspiration

Life with Elizabeth


Happy Tuesday lovelies! Lately, I've been perusing theknot.com for ceremony decor inspiration. I have no idea what type of altar floral arrangements I want to do yet - usually couples at our church do two smaller ones to the sides of the altar but I also like the idea of a larger arrangement as well.

My mom is an awesome wreath maker so she could do these for us without having to order from a florist and save lots of money!

  2. I need to steer clear of the knot until I'm actually engaged. I could be on that website planning my not real wedding (yet) for hours! I love the idea of doing the initials like that! SO CUTE!

  5. I love the wreaths idea! I think that the wreaths or monograms would both be beautiful no matter which one you go with :)
