I originally wrote this post for another website, but they ultimately decided they couldn't use it, so here we go!
While the movie set was indeed over-the-top and dramatic, it’s still a look that can be re-created in your own back yard. If you’re planning a DIY wedding at home and wish to take inspiration from the Twilight Movie – here are a few ideas to get the ball rolling [click on images for links to vendor sites]:
Metal Garden Arbor: A beautiful arbor covered with greens and flowers is a mainstay of many outdoor weddings.
DIY Garden Arbor: Hire a contractor or make it yourself! The enchantment of your big day will be with you always with a custom built garden arbor.
Five-foot Metal Flower Stand from Save On Crafts: Fill these tall flower holders with natural or faux flowers and greens. This is a perfect accent piece for the beginning of the long walk down the aisle.
Wisteria Garland Strings: If your garden cannot grow fast enough to cover your arbor in time for the big day, it’s time to go faux! These strings of wired faux wisteria in light purple will fill in the spaces.
Moss covered pots, bowls and fillers from Save On Crafts: This collection of natural moss covered pieces truly captures the rustic natural elements of the Twilight wedding. Can be used to create centerpieces for the tables or chair decorations.
Chair Covers by Wildflower Linens: These rental chair covers will turn even the most mundane rental chair into a beautiful seat fit for a bride. Mix and match for a more natural, woodland feel.
Ivy Topiary from Balsam Hill: Reusable year after year, these faux Ivy Topiary trees come pre-lit with fairy lights to cast a glow over the wedding proceedings.
Twilight Dishes Set by Carmona New York & Co.: Carmona is designer Tammy Polatsek’s own branded line of dishes. The Twilight set was created for the movie and is now being sold to the public. While not a budget item, these porcelain dishes would make lovely china for any newly married couple. The sets are packaged in sets of two which include salad, dinner, soup bowls and cups and saucers.
And finally, just for fun, here is an outdoor wedding design I created using Olioboard and many of the items above.
