    We did tall vases with 3 gerber daisies each for $15/table if you decide you DO want flowers - they brought the colors together and looked very pretty.

    We also had large fishbowls with shells, sand and water with floating off-white candles from Michael's that honestly looked even prettier then the flowers once the sun went down. I had rented the bowls thru my WC for $5/each and brought down my own shells and a couple packages of floating candles. i wish i had a picture - they looked gorgeous! (if I do say so myself...)

      What are your colors?
      I love this idea Janet, so simple and pretty!

      I am just doing lot's (and I mean lot's) of pillar candle's with shell pot pouri all around the candle's. I want a warm romantic feel, like we are at an intimate dinner with good friends, good food, and good wine...

      Keep in mind that you want your centrepiece to mesh with whatever table type you are having, long vrs round, it could determine what you choose.

          The pillar candles is a great idea. Simple, romatic and classy. I guess I will have to wait and see just how much crap I am going to be packing before I can decide on bringing all of that for the tables as well. lol.

            We aren't using flowers on our centerpices either.. We're doing the sand/starfish in a hurricane.. also a hurricane of Oranges (you can do limes or lemons too).. and a very cool light box with a floating FAKE orchid in a hurricane on top of it. Since it's suspended in water.. you can't even tell its fake!! I'd post the example picture.. but I can't figured out how to get gosh darn pics on here..

                    Are you guys planning on packing everything? Or are your wedding coordinators helping you find stuff in your destinations? It seems like we're already bringing a lot down for OOT bags, and I'm not sure how we'd get glass hurricanes or bowls down? I considered buying stuff in Jamaica, but I'm a little worried we wouldn't find what we wanted. What are you all doing?

                      I want to bring it all down with me, so I don't have to worry about finding stuff once I'm there. That's what so hard about deciding what to do for centerpieces b/c you have to think about packing it.
