I’m visualizing something like branches with cherry blossoms, or something that looks like cherry blossoms. You could use long branches to take up more space, and then you’d have a simple, clean, and elegant look.

This has been a Beluga Visualization, TM.

does your venue provide anything? sometimes venues will provide mirrors and votives and even hurricane glasses so all you would need are flowers.

If you don’t want to go with vases, you could find grey/silver candelabras and use pink flowers!

Do you know what you are going to use for table linens? Flowers can be expensive so sometimes it is less costly to bring in color with your linens.

Do you have any ability to grow your own flowers or have someone grow them for you? That can cut the cost of flowers dramatically. If not, do you have farmer’s markets where you live? Meet with the growers ahead of time-i.e now. Let them know what your needs are and they can plan to have what you need available.

A centerpiece like this can be inexpensive if you can get the flowers at a reasonable cost.

You can take inexpensive vases from the dollar store, and cover them with anaglypta wall paper painted grey. Anaglypta paper is just a heavy textured wallpaper. You can use dusty miller for the grey leaves. It is an annual that you can also grow yourself from bedding plants.

This is what Beluga’s suggestion brought to mind:

Grey Wedding Centerpieces

You could do a variation of this centerpiece using any container that you like and can get at a reasonable cost. Use pale pink or grey river rock to stabilize the branch and hot glue pink crystals to the branches in lieu of blossoms.

You could also hot glue silk flowers onto the branches:

Depending on the feel of your wedding, you could use succulents and only a few flowers

@Beluga: I am loving your thread comments today… you kill me:) 

I have seen pictures of the “branches and flowers” where the couple spray painted or bought gray/silver branches and had colored blossoms…. I think that would actually look beautiful with a soft pink or even a vibrant pink. 

What kind of a “feel” will your wedding have? I see it is a summer wedding but are you wanting something romantic or edgy or modern, etc etc etc.  Once we get a feel for how the rest of the wedding will be I’m sure we can find good pics online for you:)

Baby’s breath is VERY inexpensive and you could do a silver or grey stand with the pink as a pop of color where the brown ribbon is on this pic.

We are grey and pink too!  Charcoal grey with a light peony pink.  The rectangular tables will have pint sized silver paint cans filled with pink peonies.  And the round tables will have a pink tulip submerged in a large vase fitted with a white lampshade kinda like this:  Our linens are all grey.  And of course lots of votives too.

I don’t think your centerpieces need to scream your color scheme, just hint at it. 🙂  Good luck!

@baletrina: are you buying or renting the lampshades? How much are the costing you?

@ash:Well, I’m not the craftiest of crafty people, but I think clear vases would look very nice. You could use rocks to hold the branches in place. I’ve seen that before and it looked good! And rocks are free! Free, I tell you! Plus, rocks are, I believe, gray. So you’re on theme lady! You’re on theme!
