This time of year it’s always fun to look back at the last season and think about everything that happened, and all of the wedding trends we loved! Last year we blogged a “Faves of 08” series, and I loved reflecting on everything so much, that it’s going to be a yearly tradition on the blog—so welcome to “Faves of 09!” We’ll be recapping our favorites of 2009 over the next few weeks!

Simple Floral Centerpieces

This year we had a lot of brides that embraced simple and clean designs for their centerpieces. Some utilized a simple gathering of wildflowers, others used several large blooms such as hydrangea, and even a clustering of 3 different flowers can make a simple, stunning and affordable option for centerpieces.

A green wedding tip: Re-use your flowers! If you’re using flowers on your pews, put them in vases for your cocktail table, to dress up your gift table, or add them to your centerpieces.  Use left over altar arrangements to dress up the bar at your reception. You’ll get more bang for your buck and will lower your impact on the environment by using less stems!
