We’ve got a beautiful new site design in the works (eeek! we’re so excited!), so while we’re getting all of that ready to launch, we’re taking a break from posting for a couple weeks to focus on making sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.
Don’t worry – until then we’ll be sharing some of our all-time favorites from the archives (ferris wheel wedding? check! picnic wedding? yup!). And in the meantime you can still find us on social media, so if you miss us between now and then, come see us over on Instagram.
We can’t wait to share our new look with you! Have a great couple of weeks and we’ll see you soon!
Step 1: Take galvanized steel wire and hand form the letter you want to make. (Tip: Some letters like “C” are going to be easy, while others like “A” may require you to join two pieces of wire together. For our “K” we used the thinner gauge floral wire to join 2 pieces.)
Step 2: Prep your flower material. Cut wax flower blooms with your floral shears into roughly 3″ lengths.
Step 3: Gather 2- 3 stems of cut wax flower and make a little bundle in your hand. Take the floral tape and and wrap the blooms onto the wire letter while pulling the tape tightly around the wire and back onto itself. You can leave a small portion of the stems sticking out below the tape.
Step 4: Repeat Step 3 until you’ve covered the length of your wire letters. Each bundle should overlap so that you cover the previous bundles stems.
Step 5: Getting it ready to hang. Make a loop with your green floral wire and attach it in the center of your letter. String a beautiful coordinating ribbon through your loop and hang on a chair back, on a door, or wall! (Tip: Some letters will require more finesse than others to hang straight, so make sure you think about gravity and where makes most sense to place your loop.)

Talk about timing! I scheduled this fun feature, only to learn that the venue had abruptly closed its doors, leaving hundreds of couples out of their deposits – or for some the full balance! – and without a venue. What a wedding nightmare! My heart just breaks for all of those couples who are affected, and I was reminded of my sister’s and friend‘s respective weddings that were impacted by the flooding in Colorado last year, and I know that wedding vendors really rallied and helped to save tons of weddings in those weeks. Looking at my Twitter feed, it’s obvious that the same is happening here, with incredibly generous and talented people offering their services at hugely discounted rates to the couples left in the lurch by reBar’s sudden closing.
In an effort to help, we’ll be updating this post with the names and contact info of those vendors here, and if there’s anyone I missed, please leave your info in the comments. And if you aren’t a vendor but you still want to help, there’s an Indiegogo campaignset up to help couples afford a new wedding, as well as a Give Forward page to help the employees of reBar who are left without a paycheck.
