    For my centerpieces, I am doing vases with red gerbera daisies (to match my bouquet) and a large satin-y brown square of material under it. I'll have my favor boxes at each place setting too. Mine is really simple, but since it is outside, I figured I really didn't need a ton of decoration.

    My invitations are finally going out in the mail today too. My FI and I spent 6 hours on Saturday tying ribbons on the invites, addressing, and putting on the stamps.

          i think they are so simple, but still beautiful and i'll put crystals or rocks or something around them. the only thing that worries me (besides the breaking glass ofcourse lol), is do you think that the petals will stain the water and then it'll all be a pink cloudy mess??

            I don't think they'll change the water color in just a couple of hours. Why don't you test it out and see how it goes?

                Uh oh. This is my first time trying to use advance posting. I think I have narrowed it down to these centerpiece designs below...maybe. These look simple enough. Hope this works.

                And OMG so sorry about your flights carolina24. We are flying Delta but I should probably check on my guests' flights...And thanks for your pics mrs.timpone. You have inspired me...to look for more DIY centerpiece designs and to learn how to post images. OK, here goes.

                  These were such a huge pain to put together that...at one point, it was taking me 15-20 minutes each. Fold..thread ribbon..tissue paper..label..stamp..fold AHR card..fold RSVP card..inner envelope..outer envelope. Ay dios mio! Glad to be done.

                    So, I forgot to tell everyone about my upset with the invitations. I took a finished one to the post office on Saturday to find out how much postage would be needed, and I bought these pretty wedding stamps with the exact postage to go on them. I took them yesterday to be mailed, and I was told that whoever had weighed and figured out the postage on Saturday was wrong and that I needed an extra 20cents on each one. My only option was to have UGLY NON-MATCHING 10 cent stamps added on. The ladies at the post office yesterday were so nice though and made three phone calls about whether I could get away without the extra postage (the extra postage had to do with the thickness of the envelope and not being able to go through one of the sorting machines). They felt so bad that someone had given me the wrong info that one of the postal workers took all of my invitations and said she would go sit and add on the extra stamps to all 80 of them so that I wouldn't have to do it. Not a total disaster, but I was a bit upset that I had spent time getting really nice stamps to go on there and I had to have random stamps added on too.

                      Tanyon......those are beautiful centerpieces! I love the 2nd choice, the sliced lemons and tulips!

                      MNH....ugh im going thru kind of the same thing!! Every post office near me is out of pretty 20 cent stamps!! I know its not a big deal but I just want it to look nice and the 20 cent stamps are hideous! Its funny bc a fellow BDW member pointed out to me that "no once cares about the details of you wedding but you" but I disagree! lol
