Not much. I don’t have pictues but basically I just went to Kroger and order flowers and placed them in vases. Not fancy.

Centerpieces can cost $10-300 . Sometimes more. To save money, you can get a florist from a craft store, someone who works out of the home.

If you want something simple, then do it yourself. They have books, instruction on the internet.

I would never spend over $20 on a center piece. I’m not engaged yet, but as far as I’m concerned, I don’t see the point in spending oodles of money on things to aestetically please the guests for a few hours. I guess I see weddings being about 2 people joining for the rest of their lives in marriage, more than I see it being about a fancy “event”.

To Add: I DON’T, however, look down or feel peeved by couples to do spend lots of money to make the wedding everything they have dreamed of.

We are only planning on spending about five dollars on each one- lol! We are doing mason jars wrapped in antique hankies. In the mason jars will be daisies.

This is one of the costs that really got away from us.  I wanted to sepnd no more than $30… but, I couldn’t figure anything out that wouldn’t be too stressful or time consuming… expecially since I am not crafty.  We ended up spending $50 on floral centerpieces, and about $100 total for candles.  And, as PP said, it makes me kind of sick thinking about it, but oh well ๐Ÿ™

Including everything ($23 for flowers, $2 for vase, $5 for doily) it was $30 each, and I loved them so worth every penny. I got the flowers whole sale, the vases were thrift store finds, and the doilies from an antique store.

These large ones were $50 x 13 tables and the small ones were $12.50x 12 tables

So it averages to $26 per table.

i think mine were between $20 to $25 when i average everything out. the heart candle holder was $12, then i had five tealights which the holders were $1 each from Target. the candles themselves were a few dollars and two packages of flower petals were $12, but i only used a handful per table.

$30 from a local farmers market/grocery store.  I wanted fresh flowers, but a substantial arrangement that didnt look puny and didnt care for tall centerpieces.  Even the submerged flowers was starting to add up to almost $30 after vases and flowers, so this was the perfect find.  I pick them up just like that and set them out, no moving 60 vases, filling, etc etc…

Mine are about $8.50 per.  I bought a lot of the “ingredients” at the dollar store and a few of them at Joann fabrics.

We’re doing alternating floral and non-floral centerpieces. The floral centerpieces are $55 each for full arrangements in hollowed out pumpkins (6 tables). 

And the non-floral will end up costing around $20 each for an almost exact replica of the pic below (5 tables). I’m still trying to find the orange tinted votive holders. 

ETA: Sorry the pics are ginormous.
