I have NO idea what I want my centerpieces to look like. I think I like birdcages but really have no idea. So can I see yours? We’re meeting with florists next month so I’d like to have a general idea of what I want, but I’m lost. Help me pleaseee! 🙂 Also, I don’t want them to look cheap, but I don’t want to spend too much money on them either. I’m up for some DIY projects, but don’t want to spend a lot on flowers that will probably be trashed at the end of the night anyway.
(The Knot’s budget planner has alotted $1500 for centerpieces, but I’d like to do it for half of that, if not much much cheaper, I’m already wayyy over their budget with my dress and photographer, so I need to cut corners elsewhere!)

Found this on Pinterest, but it’s exactly what I’m looking for and plan to do:)

Well I don’t think mine fall within your budget suggestion of $1,500 but I’m sure a scaled back or DIY version would.

these were our centeripeces. I didn’t want to fork over the money for flowers either and I was able to sell my centerpieces afterwards here on the bee! I think they ran me around $25/per candelabra for roughly 15 tables and then 5 dollars per table square.

@Treejewel19: I love your tables SO MUCH!
@jrzvol: I think a DIY option is doable for Treejewel’s centerpieces. You will have to find pretty table linens online and pretty candlabras that will hold a bouquet. And, if real flowers are too expensive, considering real touch flowers that are cheaper and last forever! You can find votives and tealights online, as well.

We’re doing mismatched lanterns on each table, with white candles, moss, and rocks (as shown below). I’ll also add some votive candles in clear glass holders around the whole centerpiece, and sprinkle a few lavender/purple flowers around for some color.
Aside: we’re having an outdoor ceremony and reception (evening) at a private estate, and we’re going for a rustic/elegant look.

@futuremrsk18: Thanks so much! And yes I do agree that a DIY option is entirely doable and would look great.
@Miss Mauverick: I really love these!

This is mine. It’s a birch vase, a few birch candles and a few plain glass candles, grapevine that I spraypainted gold, Spanish moss, a few succulents, and gold birds on a birch stump. Haha it sounds like a lot when I type it all out but I’ve collected it from different places and found good deals so it’s not that expensive. The flowers in the vase will be white ranunculus and some dusty miller. It’s just setup on an end table at my house now, but I’ll have dark gray linens and gold chargers at the wedding.

I asked my florist if she can only charge me for flowers and arrangement the day of. I will provide vases, ribbon and candles separately to save money. She agreed and this is what we came up with….
8 x 4 x 4 Square Vase paid $7 each
Ivory Satin Ribbon around vase from Michaels
10 hour votive white unscented candles 72 candles for $15
