    Has anyone actually tried the limes cut in the vase at a wedding we did a trial at home and it took so many to do just one vase and they didn't keep for very long. Just wanted to see if anyone was happy with it and how they worked out

    Nope I haven't, sorry. But sounds pretty!

    I bought plastic frames from Michaels. I also bought those white pails (think favor pails) for my votives and blinged them out. Will also have some shells scattered on the tables. I didn't want anything breakable.

    YES! Because thats what I am looking for!  This is a couple ideas I had:

     

    Centrepieces - I actually think I will do something with metal buckets because they travel well.  These are my current ideas:

    So I would do the first picture, but fill it with water and floating candles (maybe put some sparkles in the water), and around the bottom do greenery with some tropical flowers in our colours.  I can probably get a metal stand to put inside the bucket of water with our table numbers on it.  I may paint it with white metallic and put a coloured ribbon around it.
     
    And with a pail - it can be as rustic as you want it to be, or as elegant.  You can take off the handle and paint it. You can leave it as is!
     
    That, OR try something like this:

    And I would probably bring my own candles and do something like this (and add maybe a monogram sticker or a thin ribbon on it:

    Driftwood would travel well but is a bit heavy.

      I found white metal lanterns on clearance at Target. We are using those with a wooden letter and small vases of flowers. Cheaper than a large flower centerpiece! I was able to fit all 5 lanterns in one suitcase along with a lot of other stuff! We are only having 29 people though.

      That is good to know as I am searching for something similar! Checking target ASAP!

      I found plastic frames at michaels for table numbers. I'm also using small white pails (favor pails) as votive holders. I added some bling. Sprinkling shells on the table and using my BM bouquets as the flowers. Hoping they will supply the vases as they are purchased flowers. If not, oh well. I'm not packing anymore!!! I will find a cup ha

      was thinking of just getting dollar store battery operated candles and creating a "votive" out of vellum so they can be covered, b/c they are ugly otherwise! lol and perhaps having handmade paper flowers scattered over the tables. 

      I would have different height candles/votive to create a more dynamic feel to the table. 

       

      In my opinion it's all about lighting...helps create that magical ambiance.
