The bubbles are the chlorine gas the municipality adds to the water, coming out of solution. If you set the water you plan to use for the centerpieces out overnight, all the bubbles should come out, then you can add them to your vases without any more forming. Adding an aquarium airstone to the water will speed the de-gassing process.

I also heard that you can use distilled water.

We did our’s the night before and there were still bubbles. They didn’t bother me though. The distilled water sounds like a good idea. I suggest doing a test at home with distilled water.

Just a really cool suggestion if you’re doing gemrocks on the bottom! I bought submersible lights that last up to at least 10 hours so if you have someone helping you put them out on the tables, have them do it at the last minute and the lights would be sure to last. Or you can rent those vase lights that sit under your vases so every things glows. I think it adds so much more to the submerged centerpieces because when the lights go down, all you’ll see is the flower glowing on the tables :o)

 I am actually doing the centerpeices myself because roses are really easy to work with.

Good info to know!  I was wondering about this too since I went to wedding recently with tons of bubbles in the centerpiece.  Unagi!
