I bought lots and lots of colored glassware and lanterns from antique stores. I am growing most of the flowers in my backyard and greenhouse..these are only mock-ups. We are having a shabby/chic wedding and our colors are jewel tones. Bridesmaid dresses are violet. 🙂

Mine aren’t really “fall-y”. I bought three large vases and three 9 hr burning floating candles. There is scatter and pink rose petals around. The first pic is one we took at home without the scatter. The second one was a mock up at our venue. The cloth under our centrepieces will be brown (the pic has red). And our napkins will be brown aswell.
I also am looking into buying voltive candles and taking away the coffee cups from the tables because it looks way too busy!

We’re alternating floral and non-floral. The floral will be hollowed out large white gourds (which I always thought were pumpkins until like a week ago) with a fall floral arrangement inside surrounded by votives…

 

And the non-floral will be various glassware with candles, leaves & fake berries. Each will be a variation of this pic…

I am going to do two different centerpieces. One, I am doing tissue paper flowers and putting into a styrofoam wreath and then it will surround a vase that will be filled with water and a tea light on top. not sure about my other one just yet. I may do a topiary with a tissue paper pomander or maybe do something with mason jars and some blooms. i am going for simple.

@UpstateCait: I really like the flowers in the pumpkin! I think that is such a neat look and perfect for your fall theme wedding.

simple, modern, 10″ black lanterns. I’m also doing orange tissue pom-pom napkin rings at each place setting, and silver chair sashes to complete the look.

I’m going to be pretty simple…

the venue provides a mirror and candle in a hurricane vase. I’m going to use that for about half the tables, and sprinkle petals on the mirror for some color. For the other tables, I’m going to use the mirror, and put a vase with a small sunflower (from the ceremony decorations,) in water.

this is what we’ll be doing, except i think we’re going to have red mokara with or instead of the berries (hopefully with) and the peonies will be garden roses and dahlias. red tea leaves will hide the stems as well.

These are the inspiration photos that my florist is working off of. We are using a single loooooong table to seat everyone, so we are using 3′ long mirrors as a continuous runner down the center of the table with 75+ candles of varying heights and 8-10 all white floral displays on top of the mirror runner.

Our wedding is two days from Halloween, so we’re simply trucking up to a pumpkin farm a few days before the wedding, buying cute small pumpkins and gourds, and using an array of those as centerpieces. Dead easy.

We are doing curly willow tree branches in a vase from Dollar Tree.  We are putting black stones at the bottom of the vase and tying a ribbon around the vase.  The centerpiece will be on a square mirror with votive candles surrounding it.  I will post pics once I have one made up!
