Or you could choose to skip real flowers all together. My friend just got married this past September and she went sans flowers. They put little candles everywhere for lighting and instead sprinkled petals down the center of the tables. It was beautiful and we will probably do the same for our wedding.

This was one of my table centerpieces.  Another had a small bird cage and a candle holder. Here are a few other pics i got off the Internet.  I love the candle look.

I love this! You could use less flowers or you could do a giant eclectic mix in the centre with tea cups and pots on a stand.

We arent using any flowers since the wedding is in december, and flowers are crazy $$$. Our theme is a love story… I used books i found at good will (buy the pound) very cheap and distressed them(minding the titles to avoid anything that would be inappropriate as a centerpeice for a wedding EX: hilters life story).



I put a ribbon around them with a paper heart i painted with chalk board paint for the table number.

I also plan on using ALOT of votive candles. I found 210 on craiglist for 50$, some were used but I tok the wax out and replaced it.

Also plan on doing some Book page hearts scattered down as a table runner.

pinkksnow:  I think your idea is headed in the right direction for a brunch. The tea cups are also adorable!

You can never go wrong with candles. They are inexpensive and add romantic ambience to any setting.

tiffany7:  First of all, I love, love your wedding theme. It will be so lovely!

I had a brunch wedding and did family style food service, so we just had small arrangements on the tables. Some had pillar candles in glass vases and then 2 bud vases with a garden rose or hydrangea. It was minimal arranging work so we could diy and pretty affordable. The big flowers have a large impact with less work.

But, keep in mind the non-floral stuff can add up, too. I spend more than I’d like to admit on candles and vases.

These were mind – themed obviously. (We also didn’t have those ugly table numbers haha!). 

I find the mirrors and the candles work really well. I don’t really like flowers so I found another centrepiece and these were so popular among guests which is weird for a centrepiece!
