I need some help on centerpieces. My fiance and I will have approximately 30 tables and we’re going to do three different centerpieces.
Centerpiece #1 will look like this with yellow and white flowers and candles with gray and yellow ribbon
Centerpiece #2 will look like this with yellow flowers and white candles with gray and yellow ribbon
Now, the centerpiece #3 is where I’m stuck. I LOVE the look of curly willows, but I also love the look of this other one. I like the idea of the curly willows adding some height, since the other two are so low. Here are some pictures. The curly willows would have three hanging votives and then votives on the table. The ribbon on the vase would be gray, with yellow on top. With the submurged one, the flower would be a yellow daisy or yellow rose, no ribbon.
Would love some input!!

With an October wedding I love the willows with the flowers attached. I am thinking you could also use the submerged ones and one of the short ones that would give you a tall, medium, and short.

I think the submerged flowers one matches the other two choices better.

I wouldn’t change the third one to the hanging votives/curly willows myself, because it seems to fit with the other two so well. Once they share the same color scheme I think they will look absolutely beautiful together in your setting. Great choices!

Have the curly willos, and put candles around them or hang candles on it like in the picture.
Would you consider having all 4 of your faves instead of 3?

@NYshoppingirl: having all 4 is actually a good idea. Do you think it would be too busy?
I’m having such a hard time deciding. I love the idea of the curly willows, because like a post above I think curly willows would look great for an October wedding.
Any ideas of how I could make the curly willows fit more with the first two centerpieces? I’m thinking the ribbon will make all three match and also the votives. For the curly willows I would do candles hanging on the curly willows and candles on the tables. What if I had a small amount of white baby’s breath in the first centerpiece and then a little bit of baby’s breath with the curly willows. I wonder what that would look like. I’m so bad at imaging these designs in my head.

wow i guess i like things organized and their is no way i could handle more than one type of centerpiece. lol if you like things looking different all over then they are all nice pieces. But, if i had to pick one and not look at my budget i like the tree with hanging candles, but with my budget, im doing something similar to the submerged flower.

I think the submerged flowers go better with the other two, thus giving your centerpieces a common thread.

Go for the curly willow. Skip attaching anything to it and let it just be tall on its own. It will give the room some height (look at other brides who all have low arrangements and you’ll get my drift).
If you want to try to tie it in with arrangement one, you could add two short curly willow sticks to #1. Curly Willow is easy to ship and easy to resell.
Skip anything that takes a lot of time and remember to fill water onsite, not before you load the car. (and learn from my mistake helping a friend, measure boxes for delivery – i had too much for the van).
Avoid manzanita like the plague. Difficult to load, expensive, and a nightmare to ship if you resell.

I voted for the submerged flowers because I think it ties in a little better with the rest of your centerpieces. If you really want height, then definitely go with curly willow/manzanita branches. I love the look them and will most likely be incorporating curly willow into my own centerpieces.
