    vanessa1359:  even if they dont include vases, if you go with a big group to Hobby Lobby or Michaels, and have each person use the weekly 40% coupon you can buy a massive tall vase for like, $10 !! I am all about saving money haha

    But yeah I find feathers so glamorous, and you get more bang for your buck!! I’ve seen so many receptions use them and the centerpieces are just to dieee for. I used 37 feathers in my pic, but I am uping it to 50/centerpiece for more fullness lol.

    Footballwife:  FYI, these look amazeballs! Gives me motivation for the DIY route which I’m hesitating due to feeling like flowers die quickly on me…specially roses. Would you mind communicating with me on pricing and different typeso flower you used and quantities. Did you find that you ordered enough? maybe I can PM you on this one? OKThnxbai. 🙂

    vanessa1359:  thank you so much!!! I watched some how to videos online and practiced using cheap random grocery store flowers just to feet a feel for it! It actually wasnt hard. It was quicker to make 30 aragements than it was to make and print oor programs!!

    hazelrogue:  we spent over $900 on 30 arrangements and we had WAY more than we needed but we planned for extra so we knew we would have a ton left. I will PM you when I get home from work 🙂 cost is a lot lower if you plan for just what you need.

    vanessa1359:  We don’t really have a theme. We just want to keep things very classic and romantic. We’re having a big downtown bash and we are trying to keep things very romantic and timeless.

    We don’t have our mock up with our florist until April but these are photos from my first meeting with him.

    These are the colors we are using for the centerpieces. The florist sent me home with the flowers!

    These are the vases we are using, and we are going with the same general shape. (We’re using the tall ones in the front. Not the ones in the back with the rounded roses. Those are someone else’s flowers LOL.) Obviously different flowers though that match the photo above. We’re going to do candles on the tables as well, and if you can see it, we are doing little mercury class votives filled with 3 roses under each centerpiece. There’s a small one in the photo but there will be more flowers in our centerpieces.

    Footballwife:  that’s so funny that you mention that, I just bought $300 worth of mercury glass votives from TjMaxx and saw some great vases too! if it took you a year to find yours I may have to go back and scoop the good ones up before they’re gone!

    This is a mock up of my centerpiece. But the stems sticking out will be gone, and the purple flowers will be replaced with maybe white roses. There will be orchids inside the vases and a floating candle.

    I unfortunately don’t have any pictures that do our centerpieces justice. They were driftwood with inset tealights and had succulents, rope, feathers, moss, etc to suit our wedding but they can be dressed up pretty much any way you want. I loved the texture and variety of shapes we ended up with. They were really inexpensive because we picked up the driftwood from the bush, drilled holes for the tealights and ‘borrowed’ fake succulents and such from DH’s family’s greenhouse. There are tons of examples if you look up driftwood centerpieces.

    missoptimism:  it was crazy! We could only find like 3-6 of each type at each place! So everytime I found something I like I literally purchased all that they had. Some items I returned if I found they didn’t go with the rest, I ended up with 5 styles used for 30 total centerpieces. I got our gold votives for $1 each at consumer crafts.
