My Wedding - Flowers & Pom Poms

Now that my wedding is all finished {sad face}, there's nothing I like more than helping other brides with their wedding details and wedding ideas. I can remember oh so clearly how important every little detail can feel. For me, our wedding decorations were really important, and I was really keen to have truly beautiful flowers. The only problem was our budget, which was seriously tight, and didn't allow for big, extravagant displays. I was also worried about the flower containers, and I became obsessed with vintage, galvanised watering cans. I seriously considered buying about 30, until I realised it would end up costing about £900. Then, while in a florist, I spotted their old galvanised flower cans, and I had my stroke of genius! I'd forgotten about this detail, until I got this lovely email from a Before the Big Day reader {see below}. If you'd like to get in touch, do send me an email, or leave a comment below this posting.

Hi Georgia,

Having fairly recently got engaged, I stumbled across your blog, and I have to say I am now hooked! If you don't mind, I had a couple of questions about your own wedding, some of the details are gorgeous! Firstly, the baby's breath in the ceremony room looks so good - where did you get those holders from (the metal ones with a handle)? And secondly, I love the pom pom idea (and the idea of getting my boy to do it!) What material did you use for yours and how did you find out how to do it? Hope you don't mind me getting in touch, Kate x


Hi Kate! Lovely to hear from you! I'm so pleased you're enjoying the blog!

The metal containers for the baby's breath are standard florists vases - the types that they have in the shops. I actually borrowed them from our French florist, but you can buy them in the UK. If you search for wholesale galvanised florist vases, they usually come up. Here's one example. The only thing is that they're often a bit shiny and new, so if you're going to buy them, it might be worth buying them early, and then leaving them outside, for the vintage look.

The pom pom idea is one of my favourites! We recently did black ones for our Halloween party, which worked out really well. They're surprisingly effective. Here's a link on how to make them! They ended up in nearly every picture!

Good luck with all your wedding planning - do stay in touch! xGeorgia
