Going into wedding planning, I was totally oblivious to costs of things. I had no idea flowers cost so much money. I initally wanted my venue to literally drip with beautiful peonies, garden roses, dahlias, magnolias and ranunculus. I come to realize now that in order to pull this off, we would literally be dripping in debt after the wedding, so I made a compromise and now here are my official wedding centerpiece’s (hopefully crossing my fingers!)
We are having 12 guest tables, on 6 of the tables we’ll have black linens with 2 fuschia runners (actually chair sashes) with the circle mirror, eiffel vases and a large round bunch of pink hydrangeas with crystals hanging from them. Kind of like this but with different flowers.
The other six tables will also have the black linens, not sure if I want to do the runners or an overlay yet, but instead of flowers, they will have the circle centerpiece mirror, diamond scatter, votives and a 5 light candelabra, like this but with hot pink petals.
What do you think? Be honest (but not brutal!). By The Way our theme is Vintage Hollywood Glam and our main colors are fuschia (more pink than purple) and pewter. The Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing pewter with fuschia sash and brooches. Not sure about the Groomsmen and Fiance yet.
I know so long winded, I’m sorry. But do you know where I can get these for cheap? I’m in the DC area.

I was on the classifieds section and now I have to give a major shout out to csbenson. The candelabra picture above is from her reception. I’m even more excited, that she’s selling the candelabra’s too!
Must be destiny!

the candelabra are from JAF Gifts – but they don’t have the 5 arm ones any more. You can get the 3 arm ones from them.

I think that is a great idea! Mixing up the centerpieces sounds like a great way to save some money on florals while still getting that awesome drama.
