They look awesome!  I don’t think that 8,100 is reasonable, unless you are having super dramatic centerpieces!  That is crazy!

WoW great job on the centerpieces and cost!! they are beautiful…

i was considering doing my flowers myself too but did not want my friends/family to be working or me worrying about things getting done on time ect ect….  My florist gave me a great quote I think.  This is  everything I’m asking for:  1 bride bouquet, 5 maids bouquet, 2 jr maids bouquet, flower girl basket w/ pedal and couple flower with ribbon tied to one side, ring bearer moss pillow with ribbon and flower . groom and 6 groomsmen boutonnieres,  8 boutonnieres for other men, 8 corsages for other women, 2 big urns plus 8 pews of flowers/ greens and rose petals for the ceremony, set of 3 med size flower arrangement (vase included so my guest can take it home!) for 10 tables,  head table arrangement, cake table arrangement with flower cake topper, guestbook (jar) table arrangement, birdcage card holder arrangement and a few flower on the escort card table along with father’s memorial arrangement all for about 3K- price includes delivery and set up….  Flowers I’m using: garden roses, Akito white roses, Ranunculus, spray roses, white bouvardia, jasmine, green ivy, eucalyptus and maidenhair fern.  I think this is a great deal and i dont have to do a thing.

good job!

would you mind share a breakdown on the materials you used for your centerpiece?  I am trying to do my own here too.

Thanks!

I think they look great. The one thing I don’t like is the vase used for the hydrangeas. It leaves too much space to see the stems, and the stems look kind of…spindley and blah. The proportion is a little off but I love the look otherwise.
