I want to do a submerged flower centerpiece at our reception tables, but I need some ideas. I’m planning on just having one cylindrical vase filled with water with one or two flowers inside. Which flowers look the best or last the longest? Show me pics of yours if you have any.

@mrscali13: Im doing something similar to this with roses, candles and little illuminators they put in the water. I think all flowers would be ok . What’s in your bouquets ?

We aren’t doing submerged flowers, but I think it looks awesome! I was watching some wedding show on TV, and they had baby’s breath submerged in a vase and it looked suuuuper cool! Kinda made me want to do it! But whatever you choose, I think it will look awesome! I’ve also seen it done with calla lilies, but I’m not a fan of calla lilies so I liked the baby’s breath MUCH better. :]

The second image is kinda blurry-sorry. I used a fake calla lilly submerged in water beads. The waterbeads allow the flower to “float in place”. The beads are really a great option to keep objects in place. Also, I added a small submergable tea light at the top for an awesome light reflection on the tables.

Wow, these all look so great! Our colors are purple and green, so I’m thinking either those colors, or white. I haven’t picked the rest of my flowers yet :/ I’m either going to completely DIY or get them from a grocery store.

What did you all find works best, (nice) fake flowers or real? What’s the drawback for either?

I’m planning on using fake orchids in long cylindrical vases. Not sure which color yet. But I think it’s silly to use real flowers with something submerged, no one will (hopefully) be able to tell they’re fake.
