Holiday/Christmas is a wonderful time of year to purchase your decorations. Take those silver bells and transform them into wedding bells. Garland now comes in a plethora of colors and can brighten up banisters or alters. Will you be working with church pews? If so, the holidays are one of the only times you can find wreath hangers which fit perfectly over most pews. Remember, many churches will not allow tape, sticky tack, or thumb tacks to keep your decorations in place.


Wedding cakes are elegant and delicious, however they can be expensive. Have a small wedding cake made for the "cutting" of the cake and then use a sheet cake to serve to your guests. Keep in mind that you want the color scheme and any design to be cohesive between the wedding cake and the sheet cake.

Cake, is only one piece of the pie. Try a dessert table filled with brownies, lemon bars, cheesecake squares, and fruit pies. If your caterer is not hosting the dessert bar consider hiring The Innovative Bride to assist with monitoring the buffet.

Last but not least, think about featuring a different dessert altogether. Try an ice cream or cheesecake bar. Let guests decide what toppings they would like on their dessert.    


Flowers bring brightness to any room, but for weddings there is so much more a DIY bride can do. Think about using seasonal items such as pumpkins and gourds in the fall, snowflakes or bells in the winter time, watering cans for spring, and paper tissue decorations for summer. Curly willow branches are always in season and add flair to a ceremony space.
