I am trying to figure out how to best stretch my floral budget and was looking for ways to use the flowers from my outdoor ceremony indoors.
Anyone tried this??
I was thinking:
Pomanders that can be converted to centerpieces??
I am going have 20 tables, so I may have to have half low centerpieces (reused from ceremony) and half tall centerpieces. Any thoughts???
If I want to get vases for the bridesmaids to put their bouquets(as well as mine) what is a good size?

I think pomanders would be lovely centerpieces. You could do a shallow bowl like Miss Lovebug to set them in or maybe a candlestick with a skewer to hold it up (depending on the weight/size).
If you put your bridemaid’s flowers in vases, make sure they know that they need to put them in there before the reception. Maybe your day-of could do the transfer. A cousin did this for her wedding, but the bridesmaids’ bouquets kind of just ended up where ever because she forgot to tell them.

how long do pomanders stay fresh if we wanted to make them in advance? and how difficult is it??

Oh gosh, I don’t know…I’m not a florist, just a coordinator. 🙂 I did work at a wedding show with a florist last month though, and as long as she kept the green foam moist with a turkey baster, most of the flowers made it the whole weekend.

My florist is transferring some of my ceremony flowers to the reception, but here is the thing-you need to leave some flowers, or most of, in the santuary/ceremony venue if you are doing any pictures there afterwards. You also don’t want to depend on those as your main florals for the reception bc your guests will get there before you will and you don’t want undecorated tables, etc.
Um, just read that this post was FOREVER ago-disregard! Sorry bees!
