Bottles decorations

I was going to do full on diy projects for centerpieces and invitations. The centerpiece would be simple and used from wine bottles that I drank from the last two years. I also saved up dressing bottles and olive oil jars. Even someone provided some old classic alcohol bottles from the 50s-80s (Not sure date but they look cool) with some awesome designs on the outside.

I felt these would work and I could make a simple bbq decor. The more I try and explain it and practice the decorations I hear the echoes of ‘that seems like a lot of work’, ‘you can only put one flower in that bottle,’ ‘oh don’t do that... it will end up being...,’ and on and on and on.

I understand they are trying to look out for me or they think it’ll look ugly And don’t want me to be disappointed. However I am in need of help of what I can do to MAKE it work and what to avoid a complete Pinterest Wedding fail. Not naysayers.

So I ask you all. How do you overcome all your DIY naysayers and know when to just stop the diy and buy the products?

    I think the diy will be beautiful. I would say gather all of your supplies and generate a trial of what the centerpiece will look like to see if you still love it. As long as you love it, they’ll be able to deal

    I spray painted mine and put our initial on it. And then I put branches in it. Bottles decorations 5

    Oh yeah. It was super easy. I did a lot of DIY and the centerpieces were probably the easiest project i did.

    I am actually working a ton of DIY right now. I have a ton of wine bottles I'm spray painting and using for table numbers. I am sending wood slices for my centerpieces as well. I'm not sure if/when I'll decide to buy stuff instead. I think part of it makes it special for me. I made it by hand, and it makes my wedding extra special. But DIY isn't for everyone. I love doing this stuff. I just re-upholstered a couch for fun. Don't stress about DIY if it's not good for you, don't stress yourself out. But if that's what you want to do, I support you either way.Bottles decorations 6



    I'll attach a rough version of my flowers.

    Honestly, the best way to stop the naysayers is don't share your plans with them. Just pick your design and do your DIY. It's highly unlikely that people will tell you they don't like it AT the wedding, even if they would have told you when you were in the planning stages.
