I’m also doing a November wheat wedding!! However, I will be using tea stainded babys breath in place of the lavendar. I love the idea of filling the vases with some small fall item and hving the wheat and lavendar coming out from the top. Maybe use seeds or hazelnuts or even lavendar colored beads or something. Here are some insporation pics for you 🙂

MrsGement: How many centerpieces do you need? You could do a combination of high and low by using the vases to hold your bridesmaids bouquets on some tables. You could cluster some of the remaining vases on the gift and guestbook tables with arrangements of wheat and lavender, or you could insert branches to which you can hot glue silk flowers. You would then use a simple low arrangement of wheat and lavender on the remaining tables.

If you have the storage space, you could create a dried arrangement using baby’s breath, lavender and wheat.  All of them dry well. A tiered arrangement like the one on the bottom right would look great.

If you do default to pomanders , you can avoid the high cost of styrofoam balls by cutting dry floral foam into the shape you need.

MrsGement:  I wouldn’t bring in too many elements. If you do the large baby’s breath arrangements, you could  fill the vase with lavender buds and do a collar of wheat or vice versa.

MrsGement:  Aww thanks 🙂 I love that idea!!

It sounds similar to what I want to do for bouts ^^ (obviously on a larger scale lol)

I know what you mean about having tacky fall decorations. It’s hard to draw the line between a fall themed wedding and a wedding that takes place in fall! Also, wheat is soooo inexpensive it’s hard not to utilize it as much as you can! What about using lavender buds as the filler?

We did babies breath centerpieces for our June 21st wedding 🙂 It looked beautiful and was very inexpensive compared to regular flowers!

I would be careful with baby’s breath, I know people who get sick from it when there is a lot And if it is a centerpiece they can’t escape it.
