Wedding Wednesday!

Welcome to another installment of Wedding Wednesday, y'all! 

This first inclusion is a patisserie inspired shoot for a bridal shower via the gals over at Ruffled Blog, The Loveliest Day, etc. Everything about this is phenomenal! Look at that cake! The set-up is exactly what I would like to have one day! (But does French Provincial go with rustic southern barns?! Eep! Not exactly!)

This sweet wedding is brought to you by 100 Layer Cake. How lovely are the tones and huge flowers?! And the bow-ties, too! 

A very sweet proposal sent to me by someone in my FormSpring! 

Want to add a little DIY to your wedding and stay as eco-friendly as possible, all the while still looking chic? Check out this fantastic DIY Eco-Friendly Chandelier via Ruffled Blog!

What you’ll need:

- Triple tier metal Tomato support or staking (Home Depot or Nursery)
- Collection of Thrift store or floral mart vases, wine glasses or cups
- Clear or light metallic thin gauge wire (Home Depot)
- Wire cutters
- Drop in light kits (Ikea or Urban outfitters)
- Power drill
- Metal chain (Home Depot)

Just click "Read More" to read the five simple steps on how to make this masterpiece yourself!


Step 1: Go to all different thrift stores and scour shops for some plastic and glass vases, wine glasses, and other unique cups that add character. Tip: Make sure that you find light-weight items, that is why plastic is best. Also, if you find glass items, make sure that they have a lip or some way you can hang them with the wire.
Step 2: After you have collected enough glasses, start work on your chandelier. Clean all the glass and plastic. Wire all the vases or glasses with the thin wire so they hang nicely. Leave a lot of wire so that you can attach it at the very top of the tomato support and it hangs a few inches below below. With the plastic vases or cups you can drill a hole into the bottom and wire it that way.
Step 3: Next, take the tomato support and hang it from somewhere stable ( we used our the inside of our garage door). We also used the metal chains as a link from the three steaks at the top of the tomato support so that we could hang it later in the tent.
Step 4: Drop the light kits into the support and hang them at different heights for even lighting. In our large chandelier we used three kits. TIP: We forgot to do this step, but I still loved my amazing chandelier! If you want you can spray the tomato support white so that it won’t show when you hang the glasses on.
Step 5: Next, start layering the plastic and glass on the outside of the support. This is the hardest but most fun step! Start with the largest items first and then fill in as you go. Take time to step back and find holes or places that need more coverage. At the end we also added mini lantern lights into the mix to give more lighting to the chandelier because it was so large. We also did a mini chandelier for the entrance of the tent and it is the same process, just without the tomato support.

Well that'll about do it for this week, ladies and gents! Hope you found it to be another inspiring post full of gorgeous marital bliss!
