          My colors are light pink, hot pink and royal blue. I picked these up at the dollar tree, got the battery operated tea lights from dollar tree (3 in a pack for $1) and the blue gems were $1 per bag. Not a bad price. We are having an imperial table set up because we only have 14 guests, so I got 6 of these totals and we will put starfish and seashells around them. Small, simple and inexpensive!!

           



          What about for center pieces what is everyone doing?  The couple that I saw were $70ea  I don't really think I have room to be bringing down centerpieces in my suitcase I am expecting 40 guests I believe tables seat 8 per table so i would need 5 centerpieces.  Any ideas???

              How many bridesmaids are you having? I rented clear vases and the wedding coordinators put my bouquets in them right after the ceremony. And I also used the hanging arrangements on the tables as well. I know the fresh flowers are pricey but in this case you can use them twice and save some money on decor. I was very pleased the way they had them arranged on our tables.

                Oh yeah, great idea Shannon!

                I too am getting the hanging arrangements and using them as part of my decor.

                      We are bringing our own centerpieces, because the cost to rent was so expensive - I could do the same at a fraction of the cost. I figured it's cheaper to bring one extra suitcase as opposed to pay for all their centerpieces. Plus my mom offered to take some of our stuff with them, so that should help.
