Congrats!! We had simple and inexpensive centerpieces. I had a silver charger, a cylinder vase with a fake fushia colored orchid in it with water and a floating candle. You can look at "drowned orchids" and get some ideas if you like that idea. Some look really cheesy and sort of cheap, but you can change them up to fit your liking. I bout a photo frame and painted it the blue that matched our wedding color and cut out a number and put it in the frame on a nice sheet of paper for background. It was simple and inexpensive. For the vases for drowned orchids, I shopped around at hobby lobby, dollar tree, and michaels. I used coupons for those as well as the flowers. I also found that the white orchids looked fake in the water, and the colored ones did not (unless you looked really really close)! Good luck! You will probably get lots of ideas here.
The tables are large, so I think it would look better if you had something in the center. Ours was really simple, but the color added something and def made it look really nice.

Right now, I am trying to get our website up and functional so that I can send out our save-the-dates. I've really just been trying to break down my decision making and get things done. This forum has been amazing for all sorts of details. Feel free to send a PM to me if you want to chat and compare notes!!
FYI, we were able to get a 5% discount with American Airlines for all of our guests! It's not a huge amount, but it's something! You just need more than 10 people traveling to the same airport destination. They can be traveling from different locations. I filled out a form online and then 2 days later they sent me a code! Super easy and I think that our guests will appreciate any help we can offer them with travel.
So speaking of help, did anyone not have centerpieces? Did the tables look bare? I'm not super attached to flowers and am trying not to spend a fortune, but I know I need something to mark table numbers. Ideas? Thoughts? Is this something that I would regret?
