Ugly centerpiece trial *updated 10/29/08*

Recommended Posts

I just have to say- I'm impressed that you are doing your centerpieces and bringing everything down so I just give you "props" for that.

 

I'm really bad at that sort of stuff but I do think sunbride was on to something with the large plate/sq.fabric idea...

ok, what about this...

Keep the tall vases, put a purple candle in them, leave the purple votives around them, use a bunch of petals, and lay the feathers on the table?

well thank you :o) i am actually having a local wedding though...i wont be traveling anywhere until my honeymoon.

i normally like being creative and doing stuff like this but for some reason i just cant get it together with these cp's. i feel like i am spending way too much time stressing over them.

SOO i am thinking that i might use the hall's cp that they provide. they are about 6-7 inches high, frosted oil lamps. thats it. HOWEVERRR im thinking that with the room decorated, the table linens done up, maybe it wont look so bad and plain like i imagine. kwim? it will work out either way.

You could try taking a thick ribbon, the color of your wedding accent, and wrapping it around the vase. Then you can take a thinner piece of ribbon and wrap that around the stems of your flowers, try adding a few more flowers too.

Jac - if you love the votives, I would shorten things - otherwise you have a low thing and a very tall thing.

 

I love the feathers - what about some tight white roses or something with the feathers sticking up a few inches and all around them? Not sure that would work with the vases you have, but it might

 

That being said,

I really love tall centerpieces - it lets people talk under them.

it just sux b/c i have 20 of those clear vases. im so pissed. i returned the floyalytes, but i am keeping the purple votive holders b/c even if i dont use them in my cp, i will place them throughout the hall to some what illuminate the room in purple like i keep picturing.
That does suck you can always put a candle in the vases or a floating candle for extra light. I know stretching it :) I do love the purple votives they cast a pretty light

Jac - you're so implusive! I can't beleive you returned the floralytes already! I think frosting the vases could've given the more subtle lighting like you wanted. but you got some great suggestions. If you added kind of a placemat, that cuold pull the look together. They could be really easy to make, have Ter do it! Or I could if you found the fabric. We could do that together.

 

Hmmm, I was goign to say more and am blanking...

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
