- Wedding: July 2014
I am a new bee and need some serious advise. We’re getting married in Ocho Rios, Jamaica July 12, 2014 (so I have some time to figure this thing out). My dilemma is- the flowers will have to be imported to Jamaica and they are extremely expensive. For example, just do do one centerpiece with candles, flowers and votives is $650. Although I am only bringing 30 family members with me, that’s alot of money for a simple tablescape. So I want to bring some cheaper options from home. What do you think about putting a few silk flowers in a 15″ cylinder vase with purple gel beads on the botton and a floating candle on top? I was also thinking about burying a small white LED light in the purple gel beads.
I don’t want my guests to be able to tell that the flowers are silk flowers. Any ideas where I can get some nice looking silk flowers that look realistic? I was thinking of the following colors: purple, lavender and white. Also, I like bling, bling and more bling. Any ideas and/or pictures you can share would be wonderful!!!
