    Commenting to follow this. Our florist quoted $70/centerpiece for about 6 flowers in a little container. It seemed way too expensive so we’re going to DIY with flowers from the grocery store or farmer’s market in either mason jars or thrifted bottles. Curious to see what others’ costs are though

    Mine came out to about $28/table. Mirror, 3 Libbey vases, silk hyacinths, 3 submersible LEDs per table, floating candles, and glass beads. Most of my materials had to be ordered so there were shipping costs (included in cost per table cost). I hope I can make some of the money back by selling some items after the wedding but I am not counting on it.

    The cell phone pics don’t do them justice but lighting is our big decor item so these will look awesome in a dim room with dramatic uplighting. Can’t wait for pro pics.

    All said and done, I figure my centerpieces will be about $25 a table.

    On the guest tables we are doing tall tealight holders w/ led candles, taper candle holders w/ candles, & bundles or carnations. Scattered petals as well. A water pitcher, wine buckets & there will also be a cupcake holder w/ cupcake at each place setting. [also each place setting will have 1 water glass, and 1 champagne glass].

    The head table will be like the guest tables, except there will also be 11″ martini glass centerpieces topped with carnations & submersible led lights.

    We spent $650 total for all of the flowers for our wedding day. This price included a bridal and Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet, boutonierres for Darling Husband and best man, petals for the flower girl, ceremony flowers (mums and baby’s breath), and 7 centerpieces.

    Here are some centerpiece photos…

    @NAvery:  Question about your centerpieces.  How many lights did you use in each cyclinder?  And where did you buy them?  I’m debating how many I need per cylinder and if I can just use the standard 1 bulb LEDs or if I need to buy the 3 bulb to put off enough light.  Also, the beads — are they the water beads?  And about how many did you use per cylinder since they expand?  Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @olsobri:  One LED light per cylinder. I bought them from a mix of Amazon and eFavorMart. I think the ones I got from Amazon are nicer, although they both worked just fine. One is DEFINITELY plenty unless your vases are huge.

    The beads are just those glass stones, not the expanding water bead things. I just put in enough to cover the LED.

    Here are some updated photos from the actual wedding (non-pro). They looked phenomenal at the wedding and I’d definitely recommend them to anyone. Thanks for all your kind words. I stole the idea myself from another poster on here so I hope this helps you!

    @NAvery:  Perfect!  Thanks so much!  I will definitely be passing along the idea to another bee and family/friends as well.  Thanks again! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It cost us $30 per centerpiece, but we sold our candle pedestals & recouped $15 back on each centerpiece because of that, & now we are giving away our dried lilac petals to another bee on the hive. Plus, the candles we used we still burn at home ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it was fabulous!

    My centerpieces were about $2. This includes 2 tealights in tall borrowed glasses, 2 short votive candles, citronela candle in a mason jar with packing sting wrapped around and tied in a heart shaped knot, and a recycled glass jar painted on the inside with a small bouquet of DIY paper flowers. And the whole thing sat on 2 music books that were 100 years old and got for fre from my church.
