In the last day or so my wedding plans completely changed. We were originally going to be getting married in Bermuda with a handful of people there, now we are having a traditional wedding state side with about 80 guests. I hadnt put any thought into centerpieces because I wasn’t going to need them but now that I do, I have no clue.
Heres a little about the wedding:
We will be getting married in my aunt and uncles back yard. Its stunning with a large pool, lush gardens, a pool house that matches the home and tons of entertaining area. We are going to have a continuos cocktail and stationed selections party to save a couple bucks so the centerpieces need not be extravagant. I would like to stay away from fresh flowers as they are simply just too expensive. I am all about DIY so I certainly dont mind getting my hands dirty.
Any cool ideas for centerpieces that I can do without breaking the bank?

In that kind of environment, I think simple but interesting is the way to go. These are some thoughts:

I’m doing a variety of potted plants with different color flowers. I unfortunately don’t have any inspiration pictures for what I’m specifically trying to achieve, but you may want to consider something like this

I really like the first set you have with the candles and clear glass bead! We have some glass jars that we put blue hydrangeas (fake) in and added these little blue lights (they are the size of a small christmas light bulb but light up when you twist them and aren’t attached to a wire) so when it is dark it lights up and you can barely tell they are fake flowers! I don’t have a pic of it but i’ll see if i can get one!

Is the date still in November?A poolside wedding could be a bit of a challenge, given that the average temperature in Sarasota in November is 41-54 degrees.
Here are some ideas:
tissue paper covered candles:
wheatgrass or moss in a birch bark squarelike the one on this inspiration board:
lanterns like this:

Nope, no longer November. We are now getting married 9/10/11. Does anyone know how to change the wedding date on here? I searched and searched but to no avail.

lanterns/candles all the way, loving those tissue paper fall colored ones. they are cheap and easy:
wrap cylinder vases in transparent paper or vellum, or a lacy, see-through fabric or ribbon.
insert candle, light.
soak up the beautiful ambience and praise!
