Hey ladies!!! I am trying to be budget friendly for my wedding, and I am chosing rather expensive beautiful bouquets for my 8 bridesmaids. I will have almost 20 tables so I am wondering if I should use their bouquets on half of my tables and do floating candle centerpieces on the others.
Does anyone have pictures from their wedding of them doing this? I am just curious! Trying to get an idea of it all!!!

I have seen it done several times. Try to avoid a tall skinny vase .It makes it ever so obvious that it is the bouquet. There is nothing wrong with doing that, but a more substantial vase makes the bouquet look more like a normal centerpiece.
I think doing half the tables with candle centerpieces is a great idea.

I have seen the flowers in the bridesmaid bouquets separated and placed in separate vases. It was done with long calalilies.

We did this with the addition of lush flowers and candles spread along our head table. The florist just had vases ready for us to put our bouquets in.

This is a pic I had saved that shows a bouquet used as a centerpiece in a glass vase.

We will be putting our bouquets in mason jars and making them pull double duty. =)

Are you using them for guest tables or just head table and other things? I was thinking about actually using them for guest tables. Its just a little wier that they will be seating and there will be an empty vase for the time being.
