One thing I learned throughout the wedding planning process is even if the vendor (florist, photograher, etc.) doesn't work out you can still learn something during the meeting. I got a great idea from a florist to fill the tall church window sills with ivy pots.
DIY has a whole new meaning after planning my wedding!
I went shopping with my mom for ivy pots for the church window sills and they were so pricey! About 10-20$ each, which added up with 10 church window sills.
DIY Ivy Pot
Step 1: Purchased 5 inch clay pots, light green Apple Barrel paint and a paint brush from Michael's Craft Store a.
Step 2: Paint the pots lightly. One paint stroke should do, especially if you want the washed antique look.
Step 3: Once the pots have dried, glue diamond rhinestones from Koyal Wholesale near the top of the pot.
Step 4: Buy soil and Ivy.
I bought some ivy from Pickering Valley Feed and Farm in Lionville, PA (you can buy ivy at any garden store).
Step 5: Plant the Ivy. You don't need too much in each pot, it will grow and spread.
Step 6: Care for your ivy!! Water them 2-4 x a week.
Step 7: Add embellishments.
When we were decorating the church the day before the wedding my sister and grandma added some crystal leaves purchased from Koyal Wholesale to jazz them up a bit! They look so pretty!
