My wedding is so soon (10/13!) and I just can not decide on centerpieces. We are having kind of a country(ish) wedding but there are parts of it that are kind of classy and vintage with lace and pearls. My wedding dress is lace and I’m wearing my grandmother’s pearls so I thought it’d be cute to put that in the wedding.
ANYHOW! I digress. It’s peacock themed and we have large mason jars and would like to keep it simple. I’m not sure what to use for the vase fillers. I am wanting to keep it cheaper and we need at least seventeen of the vases filled. That means things like the marbles are out of the question, they are just too pricey. We also aren’t doing real flowers.
I know, I know. Kind of odd sounding but we are on a budge. :/ Any advice would be so helpful! If you have any ideas please let me know. I have a TON of peacock feathers and small cat tails. I was thinking about putting those in the vase but I’m unsure of fillers and what to use to “dress them up”.
Help a sista out! 🙂

rice looks great for fillers or just plain sand. If you want color also look into the fish tank pebbles you can find basic colors fairly cheap and mix them with sand to stretch them. You can also dye rice colors too

This picture has a mason jar with the peacock feather, I think by coloring the jar you don’t need any thing inside them. You can just follow a pinterest pin to diy the color on the mason jars. and you can also make fabris flowers or I suggest making coffee filter ones, do a sor of bush with the feathers, they will really pop off the white. you could also make the wood cake stands and put the jars on them.

I agree with previous poster, white rice is cheep, also those white beans look nice in blue jars, I don’ tknow where you are, but finding smooth river rocks looks beautiful if you can get them.

are water jellies expensive?
otherwise, we spray painted all of our mason jars so we didnt need fillers. we used gold and navy. it was like $10 for 4 spray paint cans and we covered 48 mason jars. (a mixture of regular size & large)
you could paint them and fill them with sand to stick the feathers in so that the base/stick end of the feather has something firm and wont just flop around?

The water pearls are a good filler and you can get them in a large variety of colors for a pretty cheap price
