What are your centerpieces going to look like? I think you may need something tall (over 20 in) and skinny like a tall skinny vase with flowers? You can’t maybe squeeze 8 to a table? How big is your table? 25 tables sounds a bit extreme

@TwoStatesBride:  If you find a great buy on cylinder vases, I would order the larger number. They will be easy to sell after the wedding to recoup some of your costs. If you don’t need all the florals for your centerpieces, you can always make arrangements to place on the bar, guestbook table etc.

In all honesty since you have to order the stuff for your centerpeices I would accomodate for 25… just to be on the safe side.

Uh oh.. we did 10 @ a table and are having family style.. our centerpieces look like this:

 

With 15 days to go, I have no time to change and I’m just going with it. If it’s squishy at the table, sorry.. but they’ll survive.

Sorry I have no real advise.. but I do think 6 per table isn’t many — but it also depends how big the tables are.

@TwoStatesBride:  I figured the orchids would be silk if you are buying them ahead of time.

Dollar Tree has 7″ cylinder vases for $1 if you want 2 different heights.

Advertise on your local Craigslist Board.

@TwoStatesBride:  Yeah it seems like you’ll have more stuff on the table than we will.. as far as silverware serving dishes go.
