Since I started this blog, I've dedicated a few posts to showing some love for the mostly unloved, unappreciated carnations. They may not be flashy or exotic like some of their flower friends but carnations are pretty & affordable. I used carnations for our wedding because I stuck to a very strict, tight flower budget. It seems I'm not the only one as I'm seeing carnations used stylishly & beautifully in weddings more & more. Keep an open mind & take a look!

Carnation pomadors hanging from lovely ribbons are the perfect touch for another outdoor ceremony. The poms would be just as pretty decorating the aisle of a church:
Small & simple, this darling carnation centerpiece is well-sized for a cocktail table. Just make it a little larger if you have bigger tables:
A creative, overflowing centerpiece of carnations in shades of peaches & pinks:
Budget-friendly Brides, you can see it's easy to make inexpensive carnations into great wedding looks. Give carnations a chance!
