We’re meeting with a florist next weekend and I’m still not sure how to minimize the cost of flowers. I was hoping you guys have pictures of centerpieces that don’t break the bank. We’re a crafty bunch my family/friends and I so feel free give me a DIY project.
I heart flowers soooo much but I also like saving money… sacrifices…..

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
For her wedding, my sister did a three glass vessels — the sorta looked like extra large, square-shaped wine glasses — with a floating flower in each on HALF of the tables, and the same vessels with candles in them on the other half. Beautiful and affordable!

we toyed w/ the idea of using little plants in terracotta pots that could double as favors but a lot of our guests are oot and wouldn’t have been able to take them along. we also liked the idea of a terrarium but those are surprisingly expensive to buy. if you’re handy w/ plants, i don’t think it would be that difficult to make your own.
my friend did a low glass bowl with floating candles and some flowers at the bottom (she used silk ones) and scattered petals and tea lights around.

Yeah, I’m thinking I can do something simple and still make it nice. I saw a picture, in passing but it stuck in my head. It’s a white box, with a light purple ribbon around it and it had purple hydrangeas in it… which would be PERFECT for me. If I bought the flowers and the ribbon wholesale, bought some wooden boxes from anywhere then I’d be good to go! I have plenty of time to actually stick with a centerpiece, I just want to know that there are some things I can do in the event that the florists want to charge me more than I’d like to pay for the centerpieces.

there are websites where you can buy simple glass vases, similar to what the florists use, in bulk (10 or more). lots of websites for DIY flowers (or your local costco). if you’re willing to do that, there are plenty of options. you could also use gerber daisies the same way you’re thinking of your hydrangeas.

Initially we had planned to use willow branches that I painted a bronze color and then glued orchids on. I got 10 bundles for like $30 at Hobby Lobby.
