    Well it’s really hard to tell from this one distant picture what you’re going for.  From what I can see the ceterpiece is submerged flowers.  Those tend to be a popular, money saving idea that can be done many ways.

    I’m not a fan of the lighting patterns however.  I think it looks more like a bat mitzvah than a wedding.

    @NewlyEngaged77: well since you asked I’ll be honest.  Personally I’m not a fan of the submerged flower centerpieces.  I think they are very common and don’t really do much to add to the decor or feel of the room.  I think there are other centerpiece ideas that can be just as inexpensive, (non floral), but have a bigger impact.  For example this is from a  recent wedding my co-worker attended.  Only one flower so it’s not pricey.  yet it’s different and really sets a tone for the wedding.


    That being said, I should give the disclaimer that I actually DO care about centerpieces and the decor for a reception.  I DO remember those things from different weddings.  I think a nicely decorated room and thus nice centerpieces totally set the mood for the wedding.  How casual it is or how formal, etc.

    I always remember the centerpieces at weddings. People have to stare at them for like two hours while they are eating dinner, so they definitely get noticed. I agree with a PP; I think the lighting looks like something at a bar mitzvah.

    Sorry not a fan. There are many cute and inexpensive ideas out there. I would keep looking. Who says they all have to match even? Variety adds more visual interest. Like PP said people have to stare at them a long time. One of my BM’s decorated her whole wedding with stuff she found from thrift stores/yardsales, added ivy and candles and it was too cute. I would keep looking.

    @NewlyEngaged77: Instead of asking us what we like, why don’t you tell us what you like? What is the feel you want for your wedding? Do you like bright, vibrant colors or a more muted soft look? Is there an era of decor that you like? Is your wedding going to be very formal? Or less so?

    One thing I think we all need to remember is that most people in the real world don’t follow wedding blogs or forums and have never seen the vast majority of the ideas we look at every day. Just because we have seen a certain idea done time and time again on the web, doesn’t mean that it is old hat where an individual bride lives.
