helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

This is part 2 in our series of flower alternatives. There are so many different materials you can use to make centerpieces and bouquets other than fresh flowers, which can be terribly expensive. If you have a little DIY skill or just want to buy something that lasts longer than a few days, feathers are a lovely option. Ribbons, feathers and hot glue and i think you’d be set! :)

These lovely examples are all from Emplume.
