    Love the ideas… if the first picture is out of range, i think the second photo is just as beautiful! I personally love option 2 for center pieces, and probably be less expensive!

    vip0802:  I like the lantern centerpiece. The submerged flowers are pretty, but if you cluster several tall vases like that, it does make it difficult to carry on a conversation with someone across the table.

    Cylinder vases from the dollar store are inexpensive, but they are not very tall. Taller ones can add up $$ wise.

    You can get lanterns at a very reasonabe price. You can still have some green by adding a green flower at the base of the pillar candle.

    vip0802:  absolutely. Both are beautiful. I have seen the hurricane vase done and it looks great. Love how the candle light gleams off the water to create a further effect. THe only thing that was an issue is the center pieces were being knocked over. Howver, this wedding had a bit rowdier crowd then i thnk “normal”

    If you like the look of both why not alternate the two centerpieces? It’ll make the room more visually interesting to have the two centerpieces alternating between tables.

    If you do the orchids you should check out the cost of ordering real stems from your local grocery store because they really shouldn’t cost much and, unlike most flowers, will stay submerged in water. It’s not easy to get fake flowers to stay submerged & the fake orchid stems are really pricey. I tried to do a similar thing for our engagement party & I wish I just ordered real flowers because it would have been cheaper.
