(Posted under DIY, but thought I’d post it under flowers as well 🙂
This is my first post so please bear with me. I will be marrying my high school sweetheart of 8, going on 9 years, in the summer of 2011. We’re working on setting a date right now, but it is estimated to be mid-July. We’re both South Asian (Bangladeshi, to be exact), and the wedding will be a traditional one.
The color pallette will include the traditional wedding colors of red, gold, and ivory. I would love to add a touch of teal here and there. My decor will consist of the “stage” for the bride and groom and the centerpieces.
I am attaching pictures as EXAMPLES of a wedding outfit, a stage, and centerpieces that I have considered so far. I will be a DIY bride and would love to stay within a total of $200-$250 for my centerpieces. I would also love to have some height with my centerpieces.
Any suggestions, ideas, pictures, would be grrrreatly appreciated! 🙂

Here are two tall centerpeices that will be easy to DIY & will be very budget friendly! Good Luck!

You could do centerpieces made with manzanita branches (or other local branches, which would likely be less expensive) and add red flowers. These could be silk and done ahead of time, or real and added at the last minute.
Like this-only red:

You can find pillars at a thirft store that have some hieght to them. Then you will just have to decide on the flowers you want and colors you choose. Although you can do all the colors it would propbally be a good idea to keep it to only two or three colors. You do not want too much going on or your ceinterpeices to over power you, especially with such a beautiful dress. Also I am not sure if you want to do the flowers or if the cost of the flowers is the issue. I was born into the floral industry and now me and my mother own or own flower shop, so the best advice I can give you is shop around for quotes of different florist in your area and let them do the flowers. I say this not because I am noe of them but because this is one of the most speacial days of your life, if not the most special. You should be able to enjoy it, not have to worry about setting up everything and getting ready. Good Luck!
