I am using vintage books, a couple piled on top of eachother, and getting my florist the spray some babys breath gold and put in a vase for me. I made table numbers and used cheap little frames with them. I got candles bulk- soy so they last 10 hours, and they came in their own glass votive. Total price for each table is about $12.00. This is great as we only have 10 tables, so I spent around $120 for all the table decor.

Why do you have so many tables, small tables or just large wedding? What is your overall budget for the table decor?

Ok, but what is your budget for the diy stuff?

Obviously you can see that I had some floral centerpieces. But I also had goblet centerpieces. They were not DIY but they could have been. They were beautiful mercury glass goblets with tea lights that just made the room sparkle. I loved them! and they really helped cut costs.

I had a very small budget for decor ($400 including all of my flowers), so I made these out of upcycled trash (i.e. old pickle jars, disposable salad dressing cups, cardstock scraps, etc).  Less than $2 each.

FutureMrsHouy:  I totally understand.  My florist was going to charge me $80/table so I’m going the DIY route.  These photos aren’t mine, but these are some pins I had that are an easy and affordable DIY project:

I am doing something like this, but with only one vase and no lace (just the rhinestones at the bottom). Each vase will be on a square mirrored tile and then have candy or silk rose petals around it.

I’m doing this.  Paper lanterns, some lights, a couple of flowers.  Simple, inexpensive,  and looks great.

vip0802:  Do you happen to know what type of flowers are in the first pic? I want to do a similiar centerpiece but I’m not sure what flower to order.

MissBridge: I don’t know for sure, but they look like white Cymbidium orchids to me. I’m sure you could use silk ones since they’ll be submerged in water, but I don’t know if silks are more or less expensive than real ones.
