need DIY help..hanging orchids

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can anyone help me find a link on how to make floating flowers from the ceremony arch? I can't seem to find it, I thought there was one.

 

I would really appreciate it!

 

TIA!

I think Courtney aka Agape Gems made hers for her wedding at ROR.

 

I thought about doing it but ran out of time.

 

You use fishing line and silk blossoms. I think you just pop the centers out, thread the flower onto the line, then put the center back in with some hot glue.

I don't know if anyone has suggested this, but for packing purposes, I would wind each strand around a toilet paper or paper towel tube so they don't get all jumbled together.

Hi! I am also planning on doing a hanging flower curtain for my huppah. I bought faux white lillies (they didn't have any orchids...but I like the look of the lillies anyway) by the stem from Walmart, and also transparent fishing line and fishing line weights. I haven't made the hanging curtain yet...but when I do...I will cut/pop off each individual lilly from the stem. Take the finishing line and wire it through the middle of each flower (the middle part pops off and you can just stick it right back in). I'm making mine about 8 feet tall...and each line will be about 1 ft apart from the next. I think I'm going to space the actual flowers about 6 inches to a foot apart from the one above/below it. Anyway...we got fishing line weights to add to the bottom (once they are completed) so that it rests in the sand and they won't blow all over the place in the wind. To transport them, we are getting pieces of cardboard, and wrapping each line around it.

 

Hope that helps! grouphug.gif

What color are the fishing line weights you got?

 

We made ours this week, to save time you can actually thread the fishing line with a needle and we were able to get up through the middle. They came out great.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
