Hello October 2011 Brides!
Just wondering what flowers you are using and what will your centerpieces look like?
I have so many ideas but haven’t talked to a florist or anything. I am hoping to do it myself but I guess I’ll have to see.

Here are some pics of my centerpieces at my September wedding. I did highs & lows…used red roses & china mums….2 of my favorites!

Well I started a thread asking the same question about flowers and got the attached bouquet.
we are having two centerpieces.
10 tables will have 3 foot clear vases with river rock in the bottom, Ribbon in my three colors wrapped around the top of the vase, branches coming out with some flowers scattered around the top and three lanterns hanging from each centerpeice… I attached a couple of pictures to give you an idea.
10 tables will have clear vases with the flowers floating in them and the same ribbon as the others — and I am going to have some of the clear vases have branches twirled up them instead of flowers.

@klb2748: i really love the submurged flower look. Do you know about how much these centre pieces are costing? Are you diy or getting someone else to do them?

@tranquility: I do not know the cost for those, I hope to DIY, but I am not very well educated on flowers and when they are available, or where.
I think both would be super cheap considering I am only incorporating a handful of flowers rather than an entire vase full of them.

None! My venue provided votive candles, and that was all we had. I did not miss having centerpieces at all.

Those orchids are beautiful! Our venue has oblong banquet tables, so we are doing one large low centerpiece of orange calla lillies, orange gerbera daisies, orange circus roses, and green berries and bells of ireland. Off on each side, we will be adding a 4×4 square with a floating gerbera daisy. 🙂

I like flowers, but I really don’t want to spend a lot of money on centerpieces and have it seem like a waste of money. I am thinking I may have mums as my centerpieces. The size I would like to get usually doesn’t cost much, they wouldn’t hinder conversation at the table, they are a nice fall flower and then I can have some people take them home to plant them and enjoy them. I would put some votives around the mums for a little bit more decoration as well. I have also thought about having food or non floral centerpieces. Just not sure what I want to do yet.

We’re going non-floral — lots of mason jars with candles made by my Mom’s 6th-grade candle making club. I’m still trying to figure out if I want to include some other pieces as well, like driftwood or dried willow branches.

We’ll be having 2 different centerpieces, one floral and one non-floral. Each table will have one or the other…

@CaitMarae– I love that idea- very pretty! We are getting married on an island where flowers are super expensive… We are going to start looking into non-floral centerpieces soon (I am auch a procrastinator…)

Mine are non-floral, kind of. Here’s our tablescape plan:
60 inch round tables
Navy blue table cloth
Light brown burlap runner
16″ ivory doily in the center
small baby food jars w/ tea lights
pint sized mason jars stuffed with raw cotton and twine around the rim
large vase with a raw cotton bouquet
and a little gold lantern with a votive candle in it.
Here’s a pic of our inspiration bouquet for the centerpiece:

@UpstateCait: what kind of flowers are those?
Post # 15
These are the centerpieces I have started to DIY. The florist quoted me $50-$60 per centerpiece depending on size. I made these for $16 a piece 🙂

I’m trying to keep my cost for centerpieces low since Ive almost reached my budget limit and don’t want to go over too much. I’m having a purple potted orchid for sure… still thinking what else I can add to keep it simple but elegant.
