Okay our colors are Ivory, black and apple red, the ceremony is during the day. I was thinking of using the natural light of our venue as much as possible but I want it to look elegant without breaking the bank.
Here are pictures of the venue, where our reception and ceremony will be held

I glued my centerpieces together from vases from dollar tree and michaels, there’s a tutorial on here somewhere! It ended up being about $10 per set of three “vases”:

@foreverli14: I’d like to show you hisnightowls tables….she is another bee on here. She did her tables for 11.00 per table! Do you have a dollar tree in your area? She got all her supplies there and this is what hers looked like!
See the link below to follow to her original post in the gallery! I think she did a fab job!

We cut ling branches from alder bushes (not sure if they’re in your area) and spray painted them dark brown. We put them in 10″ glass vases that I got at the dollar store and filled them with sand. You could use rocks as well.
Sand box sand is pretty inexpensive and you don’t need very much, just make sure the branches are stable.
What about votives in glasses or on mirrors with some diamond confetti or glitter.

We got out centerpiece vases from a second hand store. Some of the interior pieces are coming from there as well. I would suggest looking around a second hand store for vases ect that can go together. A lot of brides in my area drop them off after they are done. Also, fabric is expensive, but you can find nice dresses/shirts/pants ect in your color from a second hand store and turn those into pieces for your centerpieces as well. Mix and match is a great way to save money, and will bring a lot of depth to your decor!

@foreverli14: Use ivory tablecloths with a black runner. That leaves red for flowers or even non floral centerpieces. You can get cylinder vases from Dollar Tree for $1, red stones for $1, add some water and a floating candle.
Or just do red floating candles
You can check out all the usual suspects to buy linens and re-sell then after to recoup 1/2 your costs.
Remember to also check AdHuntr for used linens. You can save even more. For example, these ads -ivory cloths for $5 each.
You can filter the results by geographical area to save on shipping.

Hi ! I’ve made a variety of budget conscious centerpieces, with or without lighting, for both my clients and for myself. Here’s a few pics, sorry they aren’t the best quality. The better photos are at home on my laptop:-)
There are lots of materials at DollarTree that can take you where you want to be!!!
