I’ll just go through and tell you how I feel about each picture.

Picture 1 – It’s cute, but I’m guessing you’re having guests sit around each angle of the table, therefore each guest wont be able to appreciate the beauty of the centerpiece.

Picture 2 – My favorite, I would personally go with this one. It’s very eyecatching, offers dimension and it just plain out lovely!

Picture 3 – This would be lovely, but the vase looks very empty at the bottom.. maybe add some hanging beads or something in the inside? or even the outside? Or colored water or led lights? There are many options, but the bottom looks very plain and thats the first thing I noticed.

Picture 4 – Just going to go ahead and skip to your last picture since the next 2 pictures are the same as #3. This is lovely, but once again, empty bottle. needs something in it!

@WilliamsGirl0720:  You can tell your flowers fake, but they look great! Obviously, fake flowers will always look fake, unless they are real touch, which are just as expensive as real flowers. The colors you are using for your flowers looks wonderful and helps hide the fact that they are fake. I think they look lovely.

Now that I know you plan to do waterbeads & lights, I think they will look fab, I would go with white led lights because that would be ALOT of purple for your centerpiece [im guessing you are going to have purple sashes and things too, or at least other accents].

With the wine bottle one, I think that would look really cute if you spray paint it white

Use feal flowers even if you use fewer. What is your floral budget & how many guests/tables? Not knowing that, I would say Google wholesale flowers or look at Farmer’s markets. If you are doing hydrangeas, you can do Real flowers & buy online. Also, try Koyal wholesale for any candles. I bought 288 10 hr. votives and clear holders for about $190- less than you can rent them for. Be creative with “vases.” you can find things for $5 even at your local grocery store.

OK mercury glass awesome! 

If you do opt for real I have found Same Club to be the cheapest, even half as much as Costco.

So it sounds like you will have 13-15 tables or so. I don’t know Philly, but I did price out flowers in LA (Santa Barbara really as that is where I am getting married) and DIY is a good option if budget is an issue. Have you thought about your local Farmer’s market? I would talk to the florists from there if you are nervous re: ordering online. is that possible? Will send you a link to another site I found with inexpensive vases, etc. In the a.m. Hitting the hay for now & dreaming of flowers!

I really like the 2nd set up with the tall vase, you could also add drop tealight candle holders if you’re looking for something extra or mini orbs.
