@phillybride87:  Is there any way you could post a picture? And describe other details about your wedding or attach pictures of your venue, dress, etc or is it just not what you had envisioned?

And I’m sure this doesn’t make you feel better right now, but I, even as a planning bride-to-be, don’t remember the centerpieces for the last weddings I’ve gone to. The only one I remember is the one that I helped make. I’ve been to five weddings this past year, and remember only one of the centerpieces…

This is hard.  I also hate them.  But I also agree with your fiance – this is ultimately your fault.  Your cousin is doing a favor for you that you put her in charge of and didn’t check in enough to make sure she was on the right track.  You have to try really hard not to hurt her feelings.  Can you say something like you love the vase thing, but want to see it without the initials and with different flowers?

Could you just put those somewhere else, and make your own centerpieces? that way you still use hers, like….in the bathroom or something lol.

Eeeeek, that’s a tricky situation. I guess you have to decide on how upset your cousin will be if you ask her to make a few changes?

@phillybride87:  I can definitely understand you not loving them. Are the colors/theme completely set at this point? I know it’s getting pretty close, but I was just thinking maybe you could try to say something like you’re so sorry, but you’ve been so wishy-washy lately and even though she did a great job, now you think you want to try something a little different and make a few adjustments?

Perhaps you could try to put it on you changing your mind about what you want and then you could offer to make the changes since she’s already done so much for you? This might be one of those tricky situations where a little white lie might be the best option to keep from hurting her feelings…

I really love the vase thing tbh, everything else is too much though… The vase immediately reminded me of a pintrest picture where they have tons of baby’s breath at the top. Maybe you could ask her to try that, tell her that you decided you wanted to add some flowers and if she would consider doing that. You could keep the glitter branches but take the red poinsetta leavesm the candles and the initials.

Do you have any pics of an inspirational centerpiece that you liked? The bees are an amazing resource on how to fix things like this. Don’t worry, I’m positive they can be fixed.
