DIY Wedding Getaway Garland

I recently asked some of my favorite southern ladies to pull together a series of DIY posts centered around beautiful, floral decorations easily recreated at home. We received such a great response from the car garlands in the fall wedding colors  and elegant ranch wedding ideas features, I asked Ginny and Holly to create a tutorial on how to design something similar for your own getaway car. I love how it turned out!





Greenery Garland – We suggest buying a pre made garland like this one from Fifty Flowers for ease.
Floral Oasis


1. Cut Garland to desired length

2. Attach soaked oasis to the ends of the garland floral wire

3. Insert greenery or longer stemmed flowers to the base of the oasis

4. Insert larger blooms on the top part of the oasis

5. Covering the oasis with the flowers entirely

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
