How do you feel about these centerpieces?? I was thinking about doing the candle/escort card idea and that way candles get added to the tables. What do you think?
I really like the idea of white (and/or white-ish) flowers in blue-ish vases… have you done something like any of these? know where I can get materials?

Also, do you think it would save money for me to buy the mason jars and give them to the florist to use?

Oh I like the second picture!!! It’s so cute, yet simple 🙂 I think it’s the color combinations.
But I also like the first picture how the flowers are so different from each other!

I like them. You will for sure save money if you get them yourself. Look at swap meets and consignment stores AND on the bee classifieds!

There have also been previous posts here on WeddingBee about how to DIY the blue color to clear glass jars in case you can’t find enough blue ones. Do a search.
Those are really simple centerpieces to DIY if you have some volunteers amongst friends and family and want to save money.

If you don’t care about the color combination – you could change the vertical line and have white milk glass vases (goodwill has them all the time) with blue flowers instead? Just a thought as I know blue jars can be hard to find. Here’s an example of the style of vase (flowers you’ll have to imagine)

Thanks guys! I’m so excited that I finally found what I wanted!! I found some blue mason jars on ebay (I need 12 pints, 18 quarts) for about 5$ each, so hopefully I can find them cheaper if I look harder.. I think the clear ones are cheaper too!

@kingytobe: the clear ones are less expensive (i believe Michael’s craft store sells the clear jars now). Check out local antique stores, thrift shops, and even craigslist (you can post in the wanted section) for the blue jars. The larger the blue jar, the more expensive. The shorty blue shape is so charming. Since you’re not getting married until June 26th, you have plenty of time to score some – ask around and you’ll be surprised how many old ladies will be willing to give up old canning jars for a bride. Post photos when you find them! Good luck in your hunt! 🙂
