Citrus Inspired Wedding Design {Vendor Challenge}

It’s Wedding Wednesday here with our vendor challenge using citrus as the inspiration! This bright and cheery wedding design comes from Alexandra of Enchanted Events & Design and is beautiful enough for a wedding but would also be great for a bridal shower. One of my favorite things about this design is how the colors all work together, and the stunning paper designs. Check out all the details and read how Alexandra accomplished everything on a budget…

Since weddings are my passion I decided to do a dessert table and table seating in this style. I started my design when I found the yellow and white floral table linen. I used it as an overlay in both instances to save on the cost of having to buy enough fabric to cover an entire table.

After selecting the linen I decided to use a traditional citrus color theme. I focused mainly on white and yellow but threw in a few accents of orange and lime. I wanted the tablescapes to have a light, airy, and cheery feel to them so I decided to create a mirror backdrop. The table was laid out near some big windows and the mirrors were able to reflect all of the light in the room. I picked up these full length mirrors at Target for only $4.99 each and I customized them by adding a frosted citrus image to the 2 end ones and the bride and groom’s monogram and wedding date to the center mirror (see tutorial here), a super easy DIY task!

To keep the cost down on the dessert table I combined home baked items with food I picked up from Wal-Mart! The lemon pies, cupcakes, mini lemon cakes, lemon drop candies, orange gummies, Mr. Goodbars and mints were all bought from the store. I supplemented these with the candy dipped marshmallows and lemon Jell-O jigglers with sprigs of mint leaves. The meringues were bought from Albertsons so everything was purchased cheap and easy! The only big ticket item is the gorgeous cake by Jaqki’s Cake Creations.”

For the seated table I complimented the linens by adding a round lemon yellow placemat. The centerpiece I got from a local florist. I brought in my own white vase and gave the florist general instructions on what I wanted. Instead of bringing in a picture of the centerpiece I wanted or specific flowers to use I told him I was creating a wedding tablescape inspired by citrus. I wanted him to use mainly yellow and white flowers but he could include small touches of orange and green and most importantly I wanted the centerpiece to be around $20 or less.


As I said above, I love the paper designs used here, as well as the overall feel of the decor. I think the mirrored backdrop with the frosted detail is fantastic and a great project for any celebration. If you’re planning your own wedding or a bridal shower, I hope you use some of these tips in your process. Thanks to a great team of vendors!

    Thanks for sharing a beautiful event on a budget! I love when store bought items are fancied-up. It helps those of us who don’t have time for making everything from scratch nor have the budget for restaurant catering. Thanks for sharing what you used and where you got it.
