The Look for Less: Valentine's Day Wedding

Valentine's Day is around the corner. Hopefully you get more than a box of chocolates and flowers this Valentine's Day. Something sparkly, like an engagement ring:) If so, and you wish to recreate the memory of that special day by having a Valentine's Wedding Theme you came to the right place.  When you think Valentine's Day, you usually think of roses. While I'm not a huge fan of roses mostly because they are overpriced and eventually whither away, I was inspired by them to create your Look for Less: Valentine's Day Reception Decor.

Love all these DIY projects. Before you get attached and obsessed with these decorations, I must warn you they are labor intense...confession from the bride herself. But if you have the time or enough friends to take advantage of, I would definitely go for this. Makes such a dramatic statment.

Absolutely love the roses hanging from the tree. You can spray paint a bunch of branches white to recreate this look. Remember to save money use silk roses. You can use your choice of flower if you  prefer not to use roses.

I featured a tutorial on creating the look for less for floral topiaries on a previous post: DIY floral topiaries. So in search of an affordable way to create the romantic scenery of hanging roses, I took notice that you can create the Look for Less by following this tutorial to make your roses or you can always buy at the Dollar store, Oriental Trading ($5.00/dozen)or Amazon. Head on over to the House of the Smiths where this awesome step by step tutorial is featured, along with other DIY projects. Warning: the DIY section of this site is very addicting:)
