We’re having our wedding at Bartle Hall in Preston and have candelabra included in the package. The problem is that we’re unsure whether to get flowers for the candelabra as we don’t want to go overboard on florist costs!
We have thought of various other DIY centrepieces like fishbowls and floating arrangements etc but i really like the thought of the candelabras.
Does anyone know of anywhere that does flowers for candelabra or has anyone had flowers done and know the price for this kind of thing?

@alhambra: Haven’t done it and don’t know anyone who has. I think they look amazing, but imagine them to be expensive. Could you get a photo and show your florist to give you an idea of the cost?

I think that will be what we may have to do.
I would love them to be on the tables! Would really add to the fairytale!

We were quoted for balls of gypsophilia on the candelabras… £120 each!!!!
Id say DIY it with fake flowers. Or skip them, candelabras are beautiful and dont need flowers necessarily!

I love candlabra, but they are so expensive and flowers for them would blow my budget up. If was going to go with them, I’d skip the flowers and just do candles and maybe a small arrangements at the base of the candlabra. Atleast with them at the bottom, your guests can smell the very expensive flowers you bought. 🙂

Ours are £100 each. Needless to say we went for bigger/fewer tables…! It’s still costing us £700 and that doesn’t cover the head table decoration either…
