Hello Married Bees!
It seems I will have to up my floral budget due to more tables and FI mentioning that he does not want daisies or chrysanthemums. I am thinking of changing my per table centerpiece budget to $40, $45 or $50 (max). I have a florist that will work with my budget so really, anything goes, minus the flowers FI does not like. o.O
Please help me by posting a photo of your centerpieces and how much. Thank you!!

mostly just tagging here so I can see other ideas:) but we are simpler, our idea so far is:
small vases, -one or two per table: $1 each (dollar store)
lilacs from the backyard and hydrangeas from the front yard (free-yeah!)
maybe a small picture frame for table #, also will be purchased from the $1 store.
heres my inspiration pic

My quote from the florist was too high for my budget.. so we are going with something else.
This was quoted at $75 per table for FLOWERS only. Birdcages would be provided by me. (So it would end up like… $120 per table. Not happening with my budget)

@lealorali: So elegant! That candle holder is beautiful!
@babbot: I love those colors! I like how the napkins pop too! Great look!
@MLDoddie: The look is great! 120? Ouch. I hope you find something similar!
Thank you for all your replies ladies! It’s giving me vision. 🙂

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I know my venue package covered $60 of my personalized centerpieces per table (6 tables), and I have to pay an additional $60 for upgrades I made. So $120 total per centerpiece, and the candlebras are rented through the florist. My centerpieces will be very close to this arrangement (without the flowers at the bottom), which is an arrangement the florist did for a previous wedding this past summer that I just fell in love with.

Mine are quoted to be $85 each, and that’s just for low floral arrangements. The price is on the lower end of what I was quoted (one florist told me $150 each!). I’m in DC though, where everything is expensive.

I spent a total of 300-350 on one very long estate table that had 5 mid-large size arrangements and then they had 5 smaller arrangements….they were grouped together. I had candles and petals in vases as well. Mine was for the entire table as well including votives. I supplied my runner going down the center of the table as well. I had a DW in St Thomas and the table sat 25 people.

My centerpieces cost me $50 each. The tables alternated between tall branch centerpieces and an array of submerged flower centerpieces. Sorry these are the best pics I have right now. I don’t have my pro pics back yet.

Mine were 65 for hydrangeas and tulips. I provide the pink votive holders and the candles. The wedding was supposed to be outside so I wanted something low, but I still think it worked. Man flowers get pricey! Here is a slightly hilarious pic where you can see the tabletop

@weddingbound: LOOOOOVE the vibrant colors!! Just gorgeous!!
@sweets35: Wow! Those are amazing centerpieces! Very grand!
@mrs_zamacal: LOL!! What is Mr. Pink Tie doing?! 🙂 I like how the flowers give dimension by being at different levels. It looks really pretty with the candles!
