I’m having a dome of red roses on each table, low enough so everyone can see each other

 

I have always loved red roses, I was born a June babe so red rose is my flower for June and it signifies romance; that’s just me even if its overdone or cliche I think red roses are the most beautiful flowers; I’m doing my own for $150 total (flowers, bouquets and vases)

@NoviaScotiaBride… I am also having the same issue. I have seen soooo many ideas that I haven’t been able to gather my thoughts and come up with one that I want.

 Good luck and keep us updated on what you end up doing!

I am having the same issue, but am trying to keep it simple, elegant, and economical! I look forward to seeing suggestions here.

I just wrote about this on my blog yesterday…I am so indecisive that I get overwhelmed, so I found 5 or 6 that I liked and my fiance and I are going to choose from them.  I am not letting myself look at any more centerpieces!  Right now we’re leaning towards bare branches (I’m picking them from my yard, so they’ll be free) spraypainted black with paper cherry blossoms in the branches.  We’ll set them in ceramic vases and maybe hang some candles in them.  Easy, cheap, and unique.

I actually picked pretty fast… All I knew was that I didn’t want to spend a crap ton on something that would die, never be used again, or be taken home with someone other than me.  So I began to think about unique ideas that fit me and my FI and came up with fish.  We got small fishbowls at walmart for $2each and we are going to get gravel/stones in our wedding colors and then a fish or two for each bowl. 

I picked this all out based on the facts that me and my FI love fish.  We have a pretty setup in our livingroom that cost a pretty penny and love going to the store just to look at fish.  It is cost effective.  Fish aren’t that expensive. And if we end up with them we will add them to our current aquerium.  If people take them home, oh well, they got a fish…

I am doing DIY edible centerpieces. There will be red and orange fruit, some dipped with white chocolate and there will also be silk flowers so it doesn’t look totally naked after the fruit is eaten.

Hopefully this will work, I need to do a sample to make sure. If not, I’ll have to think of something else.
