Hello fellow bees!
Here are my mock centerpieces for our rustic/earthy/vintage/romantic wedding. I am hoping to have the entire venue lit up by candles for a romantic feel. We did not want a banquety feel so we are alternating between 3 different centerpieces, but I think they all incorporate a similar feel which will make them ‘blend’ together. Happy Planning!

Big Smiles! Thanks ladies, you know sometimes I second guess myself and I’m like….are these things ugly? Lol, honestly thou the fear is they won’t blend, but I think it’s just a fear and nothing too big to worry bout. It is nice to hear from you all that they look good.
@melissa….thanks! I love em too 🙂

LOVE it- and this helps me out a lot- I’m also trying to do every table a little different- seeing your pictures, I think it’ll be easier if I pick 3 main styles

I like it a lot! It looks very pretty! I’m also doing (semi) mix-matched by using different vases.

@rebwann and happybee, and other bees doing mis matched…
These pieces came together through a bit of research,time, exhausting trips to stores and craigslist sellers! arrh…a lot of time, and then sometimes going back to the drawing board. I am no proffessional so don’t take my advice but 🙂 If I can help you save a few steps, time and money I’d be thrilled. 1. Try and plan/plot out on paper your wedding look including centerpiecs Before you buy items. My look evolved, it didn’t start with the pictures I’ve posted, I ended up with money spent on items that I have no use for. 2. I think if you’re going to do mismatched it can definitely work, just try and have them fit a certain ‘theme’, or style, whatever that is. For us, I think what is really going to help them blend, and be seamless is…the amount of candlelight at each table, all the linens will be the same…wide burlap runner with chiffon runner over that, and each table will have votive holders in either the mercury or copper hue which are in the same tonal family, and the tables with the branch centerpieces witll have both votives. If there is any way to carry over something similar at each table that would help also. 3. Look at a ton of photos from weddings, see what you like, what works, what didn’t work. 4. Finally, say you have 3 or 4 different pieces..put them all on a mock table (similar to your venue) and take Lots of pictures, notice if the agree with one another, you may ditch one, keep em all…or start over. Imagine when guests at your wedding mingle with guests at a different table…they will see different decor, I think that is so cool and speaks volumes about our unique, different styles!
I sure can’t wait to post recaps of all the decor. Above this photo helped me throw the box idea to the curb…I like the box alone, but it was too bulky for the rest of the items.
My flats if me feet hurt from my other flats! Lol, fyi all items including clothes will be for sale after my wedding. Just click on my username to see all the stuff I’ve posted.
oops..this is possible head table stuff…still in early stages, but that long block would be in front of me and FH…looks much better in person.

I love the idea of different centerpieces. I will definitely keep that in mind for my big day.
