I think ours are $17 each. They are tall candelabras with big Plumes of white feathers at the top, old Hollywood style.

@Aquaria:  $17!

 

$16 centerpieces plus $1 in tealight candles (4/each).

 

But I resold them after and made all but the money for our candles back 😀

We did half floral centerpieces, and for the other half, I scoured thrift stores for hurricane vases, ordered bulk acorns online, and bought a bunch of pillar candles on sale. I put the candles in the vases and filled them about 1/3 way with acorns, then clustered them in groups on tables.

I think most of the glassware was between 0.50 and 1.50 each, the candles were maybe $2 each, and the acorns were…cheap, I don’t remember how much. You could use any filler depending on your wedding theme and colors…pebbles, jewels, marbles, or just candles by themselves.

I paid $40/each for floral centerpieces and I supplied the vases.  They were 5″ square vases with hydrangeas and either lilies, roses, or peonies.  The smaller arrangements for the cocktail space were a little bit cheaper.

I love love love flowers (we got married in a garden and had the reception in a greenhouse) so floral boquets and centerpieces were high on my priority list.  🙂  I spent $800 total on them.

Wow- You are all amazing at keeping costs down.  Mine are a lot more than that!  OP if you can even keep it under $20 you are doing really well

@Aquaria:  ours ended up being a little more expensive than I wanted at $20 per table, but I was also very picky. I didn’t want real flowers and I couldn’t have real flames because our venue is an old wooden barn. I found metal wire, antique looking birdcages in different finishes and styles at $10 a piece (discounted 50%), along with LED pillar candles for $4-6 each, and a burlap square to sit beneath the cage. We also found some artificial flower heads on sale that we are going to use as filler in the bottom of the cages around the candles.

Commenting to see other ideas! I too, have centerpieces low on the totem pole… I also don’t have a creative bone in my body and don’t know if e.g. 1 medium sized hurricane vase is “enough” to fill the center of the table!

Im planning on spending about $40 per centerpiece but I’m a flower nut and do event flowers out of my house on the side!

ive done weddings for $200 (my cousins gift) And they’be come out beautifully. Look at stock, wax flower (hardy, pretty, and smell soooo good; beware of the woody stems you’ll need a good knife!). Any questions, feel free to ask!

if any MI or nearby brides are looking for advice or flowers for weddings or showers, graduations, rehearsals etc, feel free to message me too.

pic is my cousins bouquet. Sorry it’s huge cant resize on my phone 🙁

Mine were about $5 for round tables & about $10 for rectangular tables.

Do you have a Dollar Tree?  I got stones, vases, mirrors, etc. there. Flowers were cut from big bunches at Michaels & candles were from Quick Candles (online bulk candles.)

My benefit were the free books – belong to my parents, me, and my grandmother.
