Kissingballs or Pomanders

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone..

 

After I received that high $200 price for my centerpieces I have decided to go with something a little less doh.gif, Im hoping and have decided to do hot pink pomanders/kissing balls all down my table with tealights...so the question is, how can I make them stay in one place without them rolling around? My wedding will be on the beach so Its going to be windy...Pls help! Should I stand them on something? i figured if I did it would take the look away from the ball...feedback.gif

Thanks Amy, you mean only do 1/2 ball? I think they will still be too light to sit on the tables, wont they? And I was also thinking that they might not look like balls at that time...lol

No not half, just a slice on the bottom of the ball so they can sit on a small surface. Are you planning to use real flowers? If so, I think they will be heavy. The florist will most likely soak the floral foam in water to help keep the flowers fresh.

Floral Foam Sphere - 6"

I was thinking of doing real flowers but I just got the price back and its $100.00 per ball...So now Im debating whether I should fake flowers myself and take them with me over there.....I just saw your entire planning and omg..great job girl, I dont know how you managed to take all that in the airplane, your centerpieces were amazing I saw a little kissing ball in there...so pretty with the manzanilla trees

Thank you. My WC took care of all the centerpeices, I cannot imagine lugging all of that with me. To be honest though, it was easier than I thought taking all the boxes. Two of the boxes were pretty much filled with starfish so they were light. DH, MIL, godmother and myself each took a box and my mom took the carry-on (we were all fortunate to have booked before the extra fee for the second bag).

What kind of flowers were you thinking of using?? My FG's each had a small pomander with green buttons and they were about $25 each. The pomanders in our centerpeices were carnations I believe. We paid about $65 for each centerpeice total.

Are you using a florist from your hotel?? I remember Anny (anacgarcia) hired her own florist who did an amazing job in Cancun.

edit: I found her florist http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t8589-2

I just got my silk ones from balsacircle.com in fuschia (about $200 shipped for 10 I think though I knew I could resell to recoup some of my cost vs. real flowers) and I am sitting them on top of vases I am renting from the florist. I am putting pink floralytes in the bottom and covering them with silk fuschia rose petals and filling the vase with water. Balsacircle did ok, I wish they had been shipped in better packaging as some of the flowers came off the styrofoam during transit and I had to put several back together. I shipped mine yesterday to the caterer who is setting everything up for me and UPS ground it was less than $20. My centerpiece will sit on a black/white damask runner and/or black lace...I am considering alternating tables.

wow sounds beautiful, do you have a picture of how you are setting them on top of that vase? I was thinking of maybe setting them inside of a wicker basket. I saw it and thought it was cute but I am now considering just cutting them like I was told but I dont know if adding rose petals will take the look away from the balls...I was thinking of doing tea lights, the battery operated ones. I cant ship anything to Dreams because they refuse to accept anything prior to your wedding so im stuck lugging it with me

Here are some pics I was playing with at home. The vase will be different I used things I had at home to try and simulate the look. Will your hotel accept a delivery in advance? I've never known a hotel that would not accept a package before arrival. I can't use flames on the yacht so the battery floralytes worked for me to have some lighting effect. I'm using some battery candles that flicker to use next to a memorial photo of my grandpa that I will have there....they work well.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
