Hmmmm… my suggestion would be pick a theme of some sort.  something that you can use for a basis to build off of. 

As for table decorations, you could get glasses (wine, goblet, shot glasses, etc) and fill them with candy or gems or beaded necklaces (think mardi-gras type necklaces).  I’d go with candy or gems, personally… you get a cut centerpiece AND the guests can nibble. not to mention you can use ’em later.  Or go with bowls filled with paper flowers or fabric flowers (you can usually get tissue paper cheap as well as fabric on sale for $1/yd)

You could use wildflowers that you pick from fields or along the roads prior to the wedding (take the wedding party of a flower-picking outing!) and use salsa/jam/food jars or glasses.  Or even bottles of some sort.

You could use flower blooms (again, wildflowers) and scatter them around the candles.  Or even leaves and/or branches/boughs from evergreen trees/bushes.

hope this helps!!!  good luck!!!

maybe you’re right and you should just take a break from planning and wedding magazines.  clear your head and just let inspiration come to you.  like they say…sometimes you find it when you’re not looking.

I don’t know the feeling of what your wedding is to be like, but maybe this would help?

If you have (white?) pillar candles?? What about putting a ribbon around them, or a “belly band”? 

Something like this??


here’s some instruction for similar with paper strips and ribbon?

My first thought was for your centerpieces –

You said green was one of your colors?  You could fill hurricane vases with water and sliced limes like this:

You can get hydrangeas really cheap at a wholesale flower place or don’t use a flower at all and use floating tea lights on top.  Surround the vase with votives in canning jars (20 pint size canning jars are $20 at walmart) and scatter some wooden/dried florals like this

These are sola wood flowers from Save-On-Crafts.com and they’re 12 for 3.99


How’s that?
