Wow! It’s amazing how creative you ladies are! My first time on the board.
I’m getting married in November. I’m having an outdoor wedding and I’m stumped on what to use for centrepieces…there’s so many ideas..but I don’t know where to start. The whole feel I’m going for is natural..relaxing yet pretty.
Any ideas would be great. Colours are green and white with some yellow.
I’m loving the pomander balls idea but not sure if its the right feel.

Oh! Forgot to add that it’s a morning wedding…

My aunt was married in a state park and wanted a natural, earthy environment for her reception. She is a landscaper and had pots of all shapes and sizes in which she planted moss, grass, lavender, herbs, decorative greens and blooming plants. She planted everything a few months before the wedding and by the wedding they were beautiful, organic looking centerpeices and decorations that filled her wedding tent. If you have the space, I would highly recommend that type of easy DIY decor. She also had an arbor of grape vines in which she put hydrangias and other dryable flowers. Using birch bark, pine cones, white candles and local produce as part of the decor could really add to the look you are going for!

Look at Mrs. Espresso’s blog. She had an outdoor wedding with mason jars with some great flowers. I think she used green and white but you could easily mix it up to use yellow.

We’re having white tablecloths with periwinkle organza circles that I got off craigslist. In the middle will be a single vase (also craigslist) with yellow snapdragons that some friends a bringing because they’re invasive weeds in the mountains here (free!). I love the green/white submerged orchids in a single vase as a centerpiece. Simple and elegant. Potted violets would be pretty. We’re avoiding bits of things like bark and moss to avoid mess.

I had an outdoor November wedding, but it was in the evening. We went with different centerpieces for different tables. I mixed rectangle tables and circle tables to get the most out of our small space.
I had white hydrangea from Sam’s (which tend to have a slightly green tint that I loved) and the other tables had birch branches and luneria. I tied the whole thing together by having every vase (hydrangea, birch centerpiece and floating candles) half filled with river rock. It looked very natural, nice and glowy, without necessarily matching.

This is my table top inspiration. We’re having an outdoor wedding in September.
I love the barnboard and the antique teapots (I’m already doing weekly trips to local thrift shops buying them up!). Today I’m going to get the glass votive holders from another super generous Bee who had some leftover from her wedding.

We are using curly willow branches… I got one from our florist and kept it in water.. it started buding after one week! It is beautifull, it has green leafs growing (which is an accent colour of ours). We were originally just going to use the branches but I think we will do up the centre pieces a little over a week early just to be able to have them buding. We are putting them in tall square vases with stones in the bottom & hanging tea lights with wire off the branches.
Hope this helps.
