    Just thought I'd share the idea of usig the bridesmaids bouquets as centerpieces. A friend of mine did that here and it made total sense for a DW! Since they usually just toss them aside anyhow and well they are not taking them home, I've arranged by centerpiece decor around using their bouquets.

    Their bouquets are going to be white cala lilies with white roses. Then put into a vase with white petals surrounding it. Along with other small candles to illuminate the table. I'm also playing with the idea of asking for extra petals or cala lilies to put in the vase with water topped with their bouquets.

    Any other ideas?

      Thats a great idea! I wish I had a bigger wedding party so that I could do this.

        I think that's a great idea! I'm not having BMs but that sounds like the perfect idea!

            Yes! Excellent idea! I only have a MOH, so I can't do this, but I love this idea - so practical & definitely still beautiful.

                  I was thinking of doing the same thing. My BM bouquets are pink roses, but the arrangement is ball shaped with a ribbon that they can put around their wrist. I want to find tall cone shaped vases and fill them with shells or rose pedels and put the flowers on top. I saw a picture of this from a wedding done at a sandles resort and it looked great!
