Did you want the short ones or the tall ones?  The short ones you can buy everything at the dollar tree for, even the flowers if you wanted (but they only have white or ivory for a few months in the spring).  The tall ones you can get those vases at Hobby Lobby fairly reasonable when they have their half off sales every few months, then you can sell them after and recoup some of the costs.  You can also buy bulk flowers online or through costco really cheap, if you want real ones.

I would check out the local Dollar Tree, they even have the little sprays.  If you want the water balls they have them at Hobby Lobby or you could use glass balls.

I am a little confused as to exactly what it is you chose as a center piece.  

Is it some mums in a vase?

 

DIY, doesn’t always make things cheaper (and is definitely a more stressful option) and at $25 a centerpiece that sounds like a pretty good price!  Plus you don’t have to worry about buying everything, making it, and transport. I also always prefer real/natural flowers to silk for any type of decoration.

But if you are not happy keep looking!!  You still have plenty of time and there are so many options out there!

Do you have any centerpiece picture that you have seen and just loved?

@ Ivlanie – if you click on the green “this” in the original post, a picture of her inspiration will open.

I really think that after DIYing the small one you have pictured (the vase, roses? foam water balls, the sprays) you will be spending very close to around $20ish each, therefore for your florist quote of $25, I would go with them and save the time 🙂

And this is coming from the girl who DIY almost everything!

i’m not quite sure i understand your original centerpiece idea — is it the mirror, candle, and 1 8″ mum in a vase?

It may not be cheaper at first. However, some of the supplies you buy (ie vases, silk flowers, etc) can be sold after your wedding in order to recoop some of the expense on such site like this or craigslist. Where as you won’t be able to if you go with the florist. Once you figure out what DIY will cost what you really need to think about is “Is the stress of DIYing worth it for the amount of money I will save?”.
