lovely!  we’re using lemons in our centerpiece design as well, but are leaving them whole – just piling them in a very low blue & white floral bowl.  we’ll use small bright pink blossoms sprinkled on the lemons to make them pop.  i love the look of cut lemons, though.

perhaps you could try oranges and/or kumkuats instead of lemons for your wedding (more of a match with mango)?

I’ve always wondered what a lemon centerpiece looked like, every since watching The Breakup!

ANISTON: You got three lemons.
VAUGHN: What my baby wants my baby gets, you know that.
ANISTON: Yeah, but I wanted 12. Baby wanted 12.
VAUGHN: Why would you want 12 lemons?
ANISTON: Because I’m making a 12 lemon centerpiece.
VAUGHN: So no one’s even eating them, they’re just — they’re show lemons?
ANISTON: Yeah. They’re just show lemons. Shown in the center of the table. Glad you find that amusing. But I cannot fill a vase with only three.
VAUGHN: Well, can’t you use like a drinking glass?
ANISTON: I can’t use a drinking…
VAUGHN: We could have a smaller version of a centerpiece.
ANISTON: I’m not going to use a drinking glass for our centerpiece.
VAUGHN: You know what. I’ve got an idea. Why don’t we go ahead and scratch the centerpiece idea altogether because the chicken, that burnt my mouth, could maybe use a little bit of lemon on top of it. Guess what? Now we made a better meal versus something visually nice to look at.

ooo, i love the idea of using oranges to match your colors! perhaps if the vases are different, and the fruit is different, it’ll look unique enough that your family won’t care too much. good job!! i love them. 🙂 i too made my own centerpieces… and i’m very glad i did! it’s just so much cheaper, and not that hard.

very cute! i’m planning on doing something similar with limes (my colors are black, white, and green). how much would you say that each centerpiece cost?

Very well done. Beautiful and economical. You should try to use some other type of fruits or maybe even vegetables for your wedding centerpieces. If it aint broke, why fix it?!
