I am just curious of what all of us bees are paying per centerpiece. Only the flowers or main part not the table numbers or votives. You don’t have to leave a message. Just answer the poll. 🙂
I know that most of us probably have different sizes for different tables so just put an average.
I am in the process of deciding if I want some tall centerpieces mixed in with some shorter ones.

Ours will be less than $10 each. I couldnt imagine spending so much money on something to sit on a table for one day.

Ours are $35 for the flowers and $10 for the fishbowls, so $45 each.

Ours will be $5 a piece. The mint green milk glass vases I had been wanting just happened to go on clearance to $2.60 each and I will be filling them with dyed Baby’s Breath which will only come out to $20. I am so excited that I was able to get exactly what I wanted for so cheap!

@katy13: We plan to use different size arrangements for the different tables: cocktail tables, place card table, sweetheart table, dinner tables, etc. The prices will range from about $35-$150 per table.

Our centerpieces cost $85 for the flowers (and vases). We also paid $8 or so each for tree slice table numbers
They were gorgeous, just what I wanted, and all got taken home by family/guests and kept blooming for a couple weeks, so I think they were worth it 🙂

My friend is gifting me flowers. I might pay for boquet flowers but she’s making them. So for centerpieces the cost is $10 Michaels lanterns. She’s putting flowers around.

I think ours were roughly $50. We had a centre vase with flowers. THey were lovely and everyone took them home afterward so i liked it.

mine would have cost me about $100 if i went with a florist.
instead, we are using one of the groomsman event planning skills. he does corporate events and not weddings but is helping us out at his cost.

@katy13: I got our vases of Craigslist for $10 each (they’re about 2 feet tall), six $1 picture frames (4X6, 5 pictures of us at a location that means a lot to us, and one that has the table name–“The Bahamas”, “Niagara Falls”, etc.)
And I bought $200 worth of flowers, and arranged the centerpieces myself…
So $30-ish a centerpiece?

I painted these for our centerpieces. I used regular copy-type paper and acrylic paint. The vases I got used for $1 each. I also folded 1000 cranes to supplement the arrangement. The flowers are so large, I only need 3-4 per table. For 20-ish tables I’ve spend around $30-35. Not too bad 🙂

Ours were a total of 120 for 40 ish of them, no flowers though just purple water beads, led light, mirror and bubble vase.

Ours will be between $25 and $27 a piece. I was gonna make them, but I’m too lazy so our caterer will be providing them. Real flowers in mason jars with candles and flower petals around them.
