What is your wedding like?  Formal?  Rustic?  Modern?  What are your colors? 

 

My wedding is going to be semi-formal and I have sort of an elegent, rustic, picnic thing going.  My colors are blue and gold, so I am using sunflowers in watering cans for 1 of my centerpieces and then lemons and limes in metal pails for the other (all DIY with the containers from IKEA and bulk flowers from Costco)

I like the carnation idea. That should work and will be fairly inexpensive.

Have you Googled- “cheap centerpieces” in your colors? That should give you some ideas.

Another idea, would be to use your bouquet and BM bouquets as centerpieces after the wedding. You could have vases already on the tables to drop the bouquets into. This works really well on the reserved tables especially. Also have you thought about doing candle centerpieces instead of flowers?

I think the carnation ball is a great idea! It looks so good when put togeather! I went and got a 4 or 5 inch ball at the craft store then went to dollar tree and got the carnations. When they are put all over the ball they look great! I also had a string of crystals handing from it and its sitting on a vase! Put some candles around it and I think it looks nice! I used these pic for ideas!

Hi,

JulieLynn said she got her carnations at DollarTree.  That’s where I’d look too.  Either that or at Walmart or HobbyLobby-but I found great things at DollarTree, including stuff for favors, vases, candles, glass marbles.  You could play around a bit while you are there, and see what you like?  Good luck.

Sam’s has great prices on flowers, our roses are going to be 82 cents/stem!  Their carnations are even cheaper.  If you don’t have a Sam’s near you, maybe you have a Costco?  I’d also google wholesale flower shops/markets near you. 

By the way, my grandparents lived in South Jacksonville and St. Augustine most of my life, and I’ve spent so many summers there, such a great place!

It looks really good! Did it fit the budget you were looking to spend? I did submerged roses for mine and they were amazing!!!

Really cute but I don’t like the pink rocks in the bottom.

Im using Black Moroccan lanterns, three per table, with tea light inside. and between them two small tea light holders with two red carnations in it. im using rectangular tables and it will look one lantern one tea light holder and so on. i love the look. each lantern was only 5 dollars in ikea and the look beautiful on person. 

i you like the carnation idea you can look in the dollar tree store. i bought red carnations to do my daughters pomander ball and it came out beutiful. nobody can say the flowers are from the dollar store.

an other option is to make pomanders with tissue paper flowers… good luck!
