The Lazy Girls Guide To Wedding Decor

So, say you have this wedding. Weddings are awesome. There are many fabulous things about weddings. The dress! The invitations! The flowers! Oh, yes, the man.

Problem with weddings is… well, they are a sh*t ton of work. It is like a second job planning a wedding. Hell, for many others, it is a job. Never mind that you have to deal with great-aunt Mildred that won’t come to your wedding because it is in Mexico, and people get shot over there because of drugs and stuff and could you please change the venue to something more accommodating please, like, oh I don’t know, the chapel down the road from her.

You would like decorations. You would rather not spend a million dollars on flowers and your DIY projects look like a five-year-old made it. What is a girl to do? Go to your nearest J Crew or Anthropologie store and ask them if they would be willing to give you their window displays when they are done. Dead serious. J Crew has some fantastic ones in their window right now in a beautiful aquamarine and coral. They kind of look like this.

of course, if you would like to go ahead and make them yourself, the instructions are right here.

    I like your cost saving ideas and for a DIY idea I never thought to ask a retailer to purchase their window dressings. I am sure that a lot of brides will be happy to get this information. I like the instructions that you included and will make sure that I introduce this to my brides as a sway to personalize their event and make it unique.

    I agree. What a great idea I would have never, ever thought about. I wonder if you’ve had much success asking to buy the window dressings? I know it can’t hurt to ask! Thanks for the great idea. I need ideas such as this because I am really struggling visualizing my wedding decor and accents.
