- Wedding: June 2012
I meant to add that there will be real lights pink cymbidium orchids, more than 2, on the actual wedding day. The vases will have floating candles.
I would love to do something like this! Where did you get the wood??
This is cute. simple but elegant. I think the pink flowers will add much needed color. Love the vases. did you use the illusion ribbon? bc it looks fantastic.
I’m also curious about the bling. Is it real rhinestones, or the bling mesh that sparkles like rhinestones??
I ordered the mesh in White & it does not sparkle at all. I called the company I bought it from & the rep acted like I must be crazy because they can hardly keep the mesh in stock, but I’ve also recently heard that only the silver color actually sparkles…
I did use the illusion ribbon. Love that ribbon! I’m also going to make napkin rings out of it and our chairs are light wood color with a white leather seat so it should pull everything together.
I got the wood at wholesale fower suplly for $17. However, I was originally going to order it from http://www.save-on-crafts.com…
It’s the bling mesh. I think that the silver and or the black/silver are the only two that actually look like real rhinestones with sparkle from a distance. I was able to see the colors in person at the flower supply store and I agree that the white and other colors dont really sparkle. I personally would exchange it for the silver. I think you will be much happier.
I paid $8.10 for 2 yards and I cut the ribbon rows smaller so that I could get a lot more use out of it. I’ve used it for 8 vases plus quite a few votive candles. I’m going to buy one more pack for napkin rings and I’m pretty sure I could get about 100 out of it. Great way to save $.
