So I am planning a romantic valentines sweethearts wedding. My fiance and I had our first date on February 12th so it’s perfect for us. I’m a texas girl and always loved the idea of a wildflower wedding but because of my hopeless romantic side I am planning the ultimate pink feminine wedding. SO CHEESY I KNOW RIGHT?
Well so floating in David Tutera dreamland I would have tables full of beautiful roses but the cold hard facts is I think the bouquets is the only flowers I can afford so thus is the dileama of finding beautiful centerpieces without the aid of lush gorgeous floral arrangements. Excuse me while I cry a little wedding tear, David Tutera would not approve.
So help me out guys what do you like? Do you have any suggestions? Lets brainstorm. Here are the options I am considering so far but have no idea what is good and what will be good together!!!! My location is a revived baptist church with wood floors and some really gorgeous chandeliers. So I am thinking intimate and beautiful.
Centerpiece idea #1
This was my first idea, going with the v-day theme, vintaged valentines on blocks from etsy. I was thinking of doing a stack of blocks for each table and some candles.
I definitely want to have cupid featured in the reception I was thinking of having this statue on the cake table.
Centerpiece option 2.
Lace covered candles.
Centerpiece option number 3.
Sequins in water with 1 or 2 roses. Then a large circle vase with sequins, water and floating cadles.
Vote for your favorite!!!

1. The blocks are very cute but they are only 1.5″ square so they are a bit small to serve as a centerpiece. They would be cute as the base for a votive candle.
2. I prefer the look of the lace covered cylinder vases to the lace covered mason jars,
3. I think this combination would be really pretty. It’s also a bit different from what you commonly see with votive candles surrounding a vase of flowers. I would have 3 of the small vases with flowers surrounding the larger bowl with a candle. Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye.

Thanks so much for your sound advice! I had the same concerns about my first idea that it just wasn’t big enough and that it may be a little to much v-day.
When I saw the sequin and water idea I was so amazed it’s so cool and I know it will be inexpensive! Do you have any pictures of how you see the candle paired with it? I thought like this but with sequins in the water too.

i didnt vote because i couldnt vote for two 😉 I think it wouyld be adorable if you used the cupid blocks with the lace candels for light
Thats adorable its valentines elegant romantic with out going over board with red harts 🙂 the stachue doesnt quite seem right and the sequin rose looks out of place for a wedding

@ErinCC: I think your idea of using a bowl with floating candles will be terrific.
You could use sequins or rose petals in the vase with the candles.
If you used the same color of rose petals as the roses in the small vases, it would link the two parts of the centerpiece together.
I think your third idea is perfect as it is Valentine’s (what could be more Valentine’s than roses?) without being overtly so.

I love everything and if you mix them in different ways, you can come up with 3 different tablescapes and they will all flow together. The blocks are lovely without being to “kitchy” and do add rose petals everywhere in pink, red and white if you can’t afford bouquets. You can also do a single rose in water with the gel beads in inexpensive wine glasses (see below). Also use scatter gems in pink. Great ideas!

I like those blocks alot, but as said in PP…too small for centrepeices by themselves. Why not use them for something else, like to decorate the head table, gift table, or surround the card box?

I like the idea of combining the blocks and the lace candles for centerpieces or using the blocks in another way like PP suggested by the card box!!!
Now I just have to officially decide between my third idea or using the lace candles and blocks together as centerpieces…. hmmm.
