I am not a huge flower person and really can’t justify spending that much money on something that will die in a few days, which is why I decided to do three different size candles with votives around them. However, my mom (who is paying for the wedding) would rather see more flowers. How common is it to see just candle centerpieces at a wedding? I was also thinking of maybe doing candles on the tables and a flower centerpiece on the cocktail tables?

How about some sort of compromise and have flower centerpieces on the bride and groom’s parents’ tables? And candles on the guest tables?

idk if your still looking but since you dont want real flowers have you looked at fake ones? if you dont want them after the wedding you can sell them or give them to the guests. I’m not allowed candles at my venue were doing a single blue rose floating in small square vases with little multi blue gems in the bottom. And then were sprinkling blue and white rose petals around them. This is the closest I could find to it but all in blue and our flowers are fake. Then for the bridal table were just going to line up our bouquets. I have 4 bridesmaids so have my big one in the middle in front of us and the other 4 littler ones out to the sides.

We had both glass candle holders filled with artificial tealights and vases filled with artificial flowers.
We had 8 tables, and I’m going to say I paid no more than $50 for fake flowers – I made my own bouquet, the bouttonierres and provided flowers for all of the tables on that budget.

@Southerngirl4234: Do a little of both. Your flowers can be faux, and then they won’t be that expensive, AND you will have them for the rest of your life.

i agree with ceebree, do both
flowers are pricy but look more elegant. you can have candles as centerpieces and use little flowers to decorate it. it would lower ur cost.

I feel like just using candles as the centerpices can be quite beautiful, simplistic, and elegant 🙂 Go with what you want!
