I think they look really nice. Could you do something similar but not identical for the 12th centerpiece? I don’t think anyone (except you) would notice if they weren’t all identical. It would be a shame to waste all your hard work and that money!

Those are gorgeous!!! Please don’t scrap all of your hard work. Is it possible that the 12th centerpeice could be different because it’s at the table you and the groom are sitting at?? Absolutely no one would question why it is different. If that doesn’t work, I would get as close as possible. Those are so beautiful, don’t give up hope that you can find something that will work!!

If it’s the vase (and not the bottom part), maybe you could scour ebay or antique stores and find other nice vases, and only switch out some. Like, every third table has a different set of vases. That way you aren’t breaking the bank with replacing all of them?

If it’s just the vase, I’m sure you could find a similar vase and no one will notice. . . especially if it’s only one out of 12!

I don’t think it’s a sign not to use them at all!! They’re beautiful, and I definitely think you wouldn’t need an identical vase!! I would look at goodwill, salvation army, etc. to look for a similar (but no need) identical vase: all my vases are from consignment shops and they don’t match exactly but none of my guests will notice and they’re going to look great! Trust me, your centerpieces are beautiful!

I honestly don’t think people will compare centrepieces on different tables – you’ll notice, but the guests wont i promise!! (i barely remember any centrepieces from the weddings i went to previously) just get replacement vases as close as possible.

dont stress- they look lovely =)

Have you checked your local thrift stores? I see those vases there all the time. I agree with PPs, though, you could easily use similar vases on one centerpiece, and no one would notice.

@csteen85:  awwwe I think they look great!

Yeah I agree with PP. why don’t you make your parent’s table a special centerpiece? Or whatever table has your bridal party at, just have a vase for all the BM’s flowers?

I like your hardwork and love that has gone into these and I think they are very elegant! I was SUPER surprised when I read they were DIY! Great job!

@csteen85:  You could try scouring HomeGoods, Marshalls, TJMaxx or Ross or similar stores for a similar!
