    Use the orchid that venue provides

    Use the orchid and add some petals and single vase flowers

    Use the BM bouquet as small centerpieces

    If you’re only having 6 tables, you could do half the tables in an orchid and half as your BM’s flowers. That way you havea  little variety and you’re not having to pay anything more.

    msdolphine:  I love orchids so I would totally do a mix of 3 with orchids 3 with BM’s flowers.  I would just maybe put a mirror glass under all the centerpieces and put some candels and maybe get some petals or crystals to throw around the flowers and candles.

    msdolphine:  Personally, I love the simple elegance of the potted orchid, so I’d go with the orchid centerpiece all the way!

    I think doing half and half (as PP sugested) could work, but it would depend on the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets… if they’re similar to the pink & white rose/dahlia pictures above, I’m not 100% sure it would be cohesive… but I could be wrong on this one!

    Use the orchids, tie bows around the pots and add a mirror tile and some crystals and/or 3-4 votive candles 🙂 I think it’ll  be pretty, simply, and not cost you very much at all.

    I would use free orchids in a heartbeat. If you want to change the look, you could simply slip them into a different cachepot.

    I would not tie bows on them.I would  keep it simple and elegant.

    You can use the bridesmaids bouquets on the head or sweetheart table.

    I think the orchids will be okay. If the venue will keep them afterwards, at least you don’t need to worry about finding homes for them.

    I’d definitely want to see them first, as some orchids are not well kept and ensure that they’re real orchids and not plastic ones they just keep in a store room.

    Yes save the money! Theses are really pretty and you can definitely add the mirror and candles and it will look lovely!
