So my fiance and I are trying to cut the flower costs and do some nonfloral centerpieces as well. We are thinking of something that has a photograph of us, flower petals, and candles…Any ideas? Our colors are blush pink, gold, ivory, and we are adding in darker pinks to add a little ombre effect!. Please post any ideas that you may have..we are open to anything that is cost effective!!!

I think the pics you posted are awesome ideas! You can always find cheap picture frames at places like Target, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Burlington, Michael’s, Pat Catans, etc. And they don’t necissarily have to match on every table. Make one table pink, another gold, etc.
Flower petals are also much more affordable than full blown arrangements. And I personally see nothing wrong with artificial flowers, especially if you’re just doing petals. You can probably find bulk petals online if you google it.
Or have you considered not doing anything floral with the centerpieces? You could just use tea lights for ambiance and maybe try some acrylic “sprinkle” to help dress up the tables.
Try quickcandles.com, candles4less.com, or koyalwholesale.com for bulk candles.
orientaltrading.com has the “sprinkle” I was talking about (they call it “ice.”). They also may have candles and fake petals.
efavortmart.com and papermart.com are also good websites where you can buy things in bulk for cheap.

I know IKEA has picture frames for like a dollar. They’re unfinished wood, but if you’re doing a rustic thing, it might be perfect!
Also, baby’s breath. It’s cheaper than good artificial, and when you put a bunch of it together, all by itself, it looks great!

@FtrMrsAMH: This is an idea from Martha Stewart, you could just change the colors in Photoshop to match yours.
Here’s what I made using her idea as an inspiration

I’ve seen the first pic done before. They took cheap frames from the dollar store, glued them together, stuck the photo to the glass but kept off the backing, and put a candle in the middle to illuminate the photos.
