Simple Touch

The simplest of touches can an amazing impact to your wedding decor. Display lovely bouquets in vases around your venue instead of large floral arrangements like the one pictured here. Make sure to put in extra attention to detail for each arrangement to give off a more simple and sophisticated look that larger costlier arrangements won’t be able to rival.

For a simple yet breathtaking altar, craft an arch with bountiful hydrangeas and long barren branches. Add touches of green with some foliage, and for a little extra pizazz you can tie some ribbon to the base of the vase in soft pastel colored tulle.
