My fiance and I are having our wedidng at the end of October next year. We’re having a plum, pale pink, sage, and ivory color scheme. Given the season, we thought these would be a cute centerpiece for half of our tables:
(excuse the bad picture – phone screenshot)
and this for the other half of our tables:
We definitely like the wine glass idea, but we’re kind of iffy on the pumpkins. We’re having a semi formal (read: cocktail attire) evening wedding. We don’t want things to look too casual. We thought about maybe dipping the bottoms of the cream pumpkins in gold metallic paint as an accet to match the gold chiavari chairs we will have. The ceremony will be taking place outdoors adjacent to the reception space. For reference, our venue is the Piedmont Garden Tent in Atlanta, GA.
Do you all think the pumpkins will make things too casual? Thanks for the feedback!
TLDR: Do you think the cream pumpkins (especially if dipped in a gold metallic paint) with floral coming out the top will be too casual for an evening, coctail attire wedding?

Coctail attire really doesn’t mean anything but don’t wear jeans so I think that you can do whatever centerpieces you like! I love the pumpkin center pieces and with some metallic paint it’ll make it look more festive! Please come back and share the end result

I brought that same wine glass picture to my venue coordinator and they said no because its not sturdy. One little bump of the table and the votives will fall off.

I love the pumpkins! I could see them at a semi formal to formal wedding easily!

stmartinpartyof2: I think the pumpkins can look very glam. It depends on how they are used. Placing them on top of the books looks more casual to me. Elevated in a compote or on a stand of some sort- more elegant. Adding some metallic also increases the glam factor.
There are lots of examples on Pinterest.

Love it, check pinterest!
I saw a Facebook thing going around warning people to be careful about spray painting pumpkins because they can explode.

If youre going for similar florar arrangements, i wouldnt bother with the spray paint. I think the white looks so clean & nice, especially with the beautiful lavender flowers. only issue is, are you going to carve out how ever many pumpkins you need a few days before, or are you going to have that done? just a thought. ekk, keep in mind what PinkPearls: said.

Hey fellow GA bride!! My friend got married at Park Tavern a couple of years ago!
I think the pumpkins would look amazing and not too casual!
We’re getting married in Hawaii and are actually doing the same thing, but with pineapples! A mixture of vases and whole gold pineapples!
