I am in a pickle. I need to dramatically cut my budget in the floral section to afford this awesome photographer…
My wedding is being held in a museum so I am not allowed to have any candles.
Any suggestions on how to save money on centerpieces for 10 tables, and 1 head table???

Sorry that this reply is so late, but depending on the venue/ theeme/ feel of your wedding, I recently went to one that had long grasses in vases in the centerpieces. They were native grasses cut that day literally from the field outside their house. It was a low cost, causal feel type of thing. Maybe this helps?

Maybe some low centerpieces of more green elements such as river rocks, stones, wheatgrass, etc. Do you have pics of your venue so we can see what you are working with? You could also just do a small vase with floating flowers, something simple but pretty.

PS, I hope you dont mind, I moved this to the Flowers board, hopefully more people will see it and help you out!

Any sort of hurricane vase with saturated flowers (they can be silk!) or stones at the bottom would be nice! And very simple!

Depending on your colors, fruit (apples, limes, oranges) can add a great pop of color. Vases are cheap at Michaels, especially with the weekly coupon they send out:)

Well… I guess it depends on what you want to spend per table. Are we talking inexpensive like you don’t want to go over $5 per table, or inexpensive like you want to keep it to under $50 per table?

I like the idea of using vases with different fillers–either rocks, veggies, fruit, etc.
What’s your color scheme?

Since your wedding is in a library, why not use books as part of your centepeice? I love this image from theknot.com. Just add a simple vase with a few color coordinating flowers, and voila!

I LOVE Amber McBride’s suggestion. Perfect for a library and can be done with silk flowers to cut down on costs. You can get vases from IKEA or Target for cheap.

I am in LOVE with centerpiece using fruit and/or fruit slices! Buying the fruit in bulk at Costco, Winco, or Walmart was helpful in saving money, and it also creates a unique, bold look for your wedding! here is a How-To guide on making these centerpieces, and a picture of my wedding centerpiece! Good luck!

I love the look of tightly packed carnations (like in AmberMcBrides inspiration pic). They are so cheap, but once they’re made into a tight arrangement they have an extremely high impact.
