How about something like this? This is not from my wedding but I think the idea is super fun and cute. Try maybe going to Michael’s and do a quick mock up. I am pretty sure they have fake whole lemons for pretty cheap

Personally, I love this. Not sure how formal your wedding is, though.

Hi, your wedding sounds exactly like mine!  We were also in a mansion, yellow and gray, and did everything DIY, including lemon centerpieces.  I used milk glass, which I purchcased from bees and from ebay.  I was able to sell it to other bees for just about what I paid for it all, so I consider that free :)   Here is what we did on half the tables, the other half we used cut lemons (which my  mother in law cut the day before and put in water–they lasted perfectly fine).  I had SOO many compliments on them.

@cekpet86:  I went to a wedding last year that did lemon/lime centerpieces. I don’t have a photo but it looked fab!!!

They had a wide large bowl with whole lemons and limes submerged in water. They then had a mix of beautiful yellow and lime green flowers floating on the top of the bowl. They bought some floating candles in the shape of cut limes and lemons and mixed those in with the flowers. The candles added ambiance and smelt divine too!

 the candles were like this from http://www.candle-boutique.com

I’m doing a lemon and lime wedding and want to have them in my centerpieces.  Target has some pretty realistic fake lemons that we used to see how a centerpiece would look and i really loved it!  We submerged them in water in a tall cylinder vase with white faux flowers mixed in and it was gorgeous.  Only problem was the fake lemons floated, lol
