Can we help in any way? We did diy centerpiece (mock ups came out good) inspired from Martha Stewart magazine and for I’d say a decent price.

Can you use candles? What is your ideal budget? Are you having a romantic feel or any other kind of feel? My gears are turning. Oh and what kind of tables and linens?

My Fiance and I decided to make our favors our centerpieces….mainly because I can’t see spending $$$ on centerpieces that will be thrown away. I would rather spend more $ than I planned on making awesome favors (Chocolate dipped fortune cookies with personalized messages will run us about $340, paper, boxes, labels, and the plates and bowls will bring the cost up to about $600-$700 for centerpieces AND favors combined!)

I am making my own cake stands by using apoxy to glue plates ontop of upside down bowls (plates 1.99, bowls .99 at Christmas Tree Shop)

Then I am going to put a ribbon around where the two meet to fancy it up a bit.

Favors are white 3x3x3 boxes filled with cookies that I will wrap with decorative paper that matches the theme.

Honestly I never notice the centrepieces for more than 2 minutes unless they are hideous and/or freakin huge and I can’t see any of the good stuff -like dances, entrances, speeches.

Are you doing favours? Can they be your centrepiece?

Luna Bazaar has cut colored vintage style vases and bottles. Choose a few in your colors, of varying heights and styles and use only one or a few flowers per vase. No expertise needed.

I love ikea vases with candles and wrapped with ribbon of your colors. Costco has well priced hydrangeas in vases that you can paint in your colors.

Here is a Turquoise/plum centerpiece idea I had saved on my computer.  Not sure what kind of look you are going for but I though this was pretty.
