    Hey All,
    So I had a planning session with Teresa at the PPR yesterday and first I must say that everything went very very smoothly it was amazing. I feel very confident that everything I talked about and want is going to happen and be ok.

    The only thing that we did not get done is a decision on the centerpieces. I never really wanted centerpieces with flowers, I always wanted tall vases with water and candles in them and lots of little votive candles. When we discussed this though and I saw that it was going to get pretty pricey and I might need to decide on something else.

    What has everyone else done for their centerpieces? I feel like everything is expensive and am not really sure what to do.

      Have you considered bringing your own centerpieces? You can get vases and candles pretty inexpensive at places like Hobby Lobby and Homegoods if you have either in your area. Also, if you get on Hobby Lobby's webpage that have great sales and you can check out when they have their vases on sale. Also, from what I have read on the site, PPR sets up your items for no charge.

        Hi Lindsay, I'm getting married at the the PPR on February 13th and my maid of honor made really pretty topiaries with sea shells for our centerpieces. It can be very expensive to buy the centerpieces from them, especailly if you want something other than flowers. If you have someone that is pretty crafty, maybe you can consider bringing your own like we are. Good Luck and Congratulations :)

          Hi All,
          Thanks for your responses. I actually had my second call with Teresa yesterday and I decided on a simple and not too expensive centerpiece. We are going to get 3x5 inch square vases and fill them with about a dozen to a dozen and a half dark orange roses (which match my bridesmaid dresses). We are also going to put about 8 tea lights on each table. We also have place cards we are putting on the tables which are small seashells that have a slit in them where we are putting the actual card with the name which is pretty as well and we have our gifts which are nicely wrapped in a box with a bow. So between all of this I think the tables are going to look pretty full and pretty, I can't wait to see how it all looks!

            Just wondering, what are you giving as your gift?

              We are using starfish as our escort cards and we are putting a bottle of wine in everyone's room upon arrival with personalized labels on them so going with the theme we got chrome wine stoppers with starfish on top and they are packaged really nicely in a small box with an aqua ribbon which also fits in with the aqua package we are doing and we have aqua napkins on the table!
