How to make this simple modern wedding centerpiece

For the centerpieces, simply cut the calla lilies to your desired length for the vase. You want the top of the calla lily to be about ¾ of the way to the top. Then use the flower adhesive to glue the stem to the bottom of the vase. Hold until sturdy and add the acrylic ice around the base of the stem. Then add water to the desired height in the vase. Repeat on other vases!

For the bouquet, you will want to tape 2-3 stems together and repeat until you reach your desired look and fullness. This bouquet pictured features 8 stems total.

For the Boutonniere:

Use one mini calla lily and cut the stem to about 3-inches. Then use two pieces of lily grass and looped them around the top of the calla lily using floral tape to secure everything together and cover the stem. Easy peasy!

Tips for Simple, Affordable Wedding Decor:

How to Make Your Modern Wedding Look Luxe
  • Keep your decor simple and cost-effective by sticking with fresh white and black to contrast the creamy whites and greens of the Calla Lilies.
  • Going for a minimalist look gives a sleek and chic effect that looks totally modern rather than sparse!
  • A signature drink is an easy way to enhance the vibe at your event, especially if you’re opting to do a cash bar or limiting the menu to beer and wine. Create a sip station with a pretty pitcher and tray of styled cocktails!
