Shop Story

There’s no rule that says you have to decorate your wedding tables with tidy tea roses in charming vases, nor must you shell out the big bucks for a slew of extravagant floral arrangements. That may be a tradition, but the modern bride has broken so many rules that even the traditional centerpiece is no longer a requirement. The fact of the matter is, you can do whatever you want, and there are plenty of unique and lovely alternatives from which to choose. Whether you decide to dress up your wedding tables with ostrich feathers, sailboats, coral, lanterns or some other chic objet d’art, online shops like Etsy (US), World Market, Walmart and more have got you covered.
