You don't need any prior flower arranging experience to create these simple but stunning centerpieces. The best part: You can make them a few days in advance.

You can use fake flowers since a) sunflowers are convincing and b) they'll be hanging from the ceiling so they're less likely to be seen up close. All you need are fake sunflowers and styrofoam balls from the craft store.

Hang them over the chairs by the aisle. Small daisies, babies breath, and lavender look best and don't require any professional flower arranging knowledge.

This is also a great way for guests to include any photos or Polaroids of themselves.

Instead of a photobooth, set up an impromptu iPad photobooth at the guestbook station. You can easily set up a self-explanatory photo station using an iPad and an Airprint-enabled printer. You can even use the app Pocketbooth to print out photobooth style photos.
