Chicago DIY Wedding: Use your local market!

Centerpieces from your local market

A Chicago wedding can be under $15,000. And to help prove the point here is a great idea for your centerpieces. The colors of this wedding, which was held at The Green Dolphin Street, were fuchsia and  chartreuse. The jazz infused music and vibrant colors choices immediately lead me  to bright, fresh and colorful centerpieces. Let nature do the work for you. Check your local produce market or farmers market to see what is in season. Flowers aren’t the only natural flavor to help add color and life to your tables. Experiment!

Chicago is so lucky to have Stanley’s Fruit & Vegetables on the corner of North and Elston. I literally spent $100 and walked away with lush green apples, bright orange peppers and deep green asparagus. Really! Add a fun twist the the traditional centerpiece, and why not? The guests are there to have fun, just as much as you are. Show off your unique, quirky and romantic side with a little sweet, sour and spice.
