Hi my name is Becky Sosa with and I'd like to talk to you about making outdoor wedding centerpieces. When you're considering outdoor wedding centerpieces, you've got to consider the wind. You're going to want to avoid tall centerpieces that are easily going to be knocked over when the win gusts come through. Inevitably there's always wind. Candles are great outside but you do have to also consider if they're going to get blown out. Make sure your candles are in a container with sides that come up around them. Also make sure your containers are weighted down. A fun way to do this that I like to do is to take natural elements. Anytime you're doing an outside wedding and incorporate them. Here we've got split peas put into the bottom of the candle holders. Holds them in place, gives us the green color for the wedding but a fun country feel to it. We've tied them off with raffia, kept it short so it won't catch on fire but at the same time it's just a fun cute little thing. You can group them together or you can use different size jars to give it a little bit different feel. Over here I've taken dried lentils and dried black beans and I've put our green candles in these. There's just enough of an edge on here that the wind is not going to blow these candles out and at the same time it's very easy to clean up afterwards when you can take the candle out, throw the black beans and the lentils away. Still have the vases that are good to use in your home later. These are ways to make outdoor wedding centerpieces.
