Australian Themed wedding
An Australian themed wedding is great, because you can get most things for next to nothing. Later I will show you Australian themed wedding invitations. In the picture above, I've done a centrepiece with the only cost being the candle. If you wanted you could add gold ribbon around it to pretty it up more. All I did was find some bark and gum leaves at the park. I think it's very effective.
Another great idea is putting the candle on a white platter and scattering gum nuts on the platter. Or you could scatter gum nuts on the table and not have a platter.
One brilliant thing about an Australian themed wedding is the place settings are free. Simply get a gum leaf and a gold pen and writing peoples name on it. Placed next above or on the plates.
Painting gum nuts gold will give an nice effect also. Sticks in a glass vase, either natural or painted is great also.
All I did was walk around our neighbor hood, and I found plenty of leaves and gum nuts, along with lots of native flowers. You could easily decorate any hall or church, make a bouquet for free. Lots of people have natives in their gardens and from my experience, people are more than happy to share.
