Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

I was inquiring about flowers to a florist in the area and they said hydrengas were one of the more cost efficient flowers with peonies being one of the most expensive. He sent me images of arrangments with roses and various flowers, including hydrengas, that ranged from $75 to $135 in price. Not sure of your budget though and preferences.

I'm thinking all white tables would be pretty. With a touch of pink in candles or maybe the menu!

 

I wish hydrengas were not so expensive in the DR:(

These are the start of my centerpieces!  The vase is actually bigger than it looks, (6.125"L x 6.125"W x 8"H) And I will be using white floating candles not those tea lights!  My colors are magenta/lime.. and orchids are my flowers.  I plan on boxing each centerpiece ready to go and having each of my bridesmaids be responsible for 1 in their carry on. The WC will just have to add H2O! (and I won't spend ANY time on them while down there!)

 

What do you think?!

The Vase was about $5, the orchid stem was $3.99 from AC Moore (without a coupon), I'm estimating 4 candles to be about $5 and the ribbon which will do all 8 centerpieces was 2 for $5.00,  I used a small bag of stones for the bottom.  I plan on buying these in bulk and using coupons.

 

I want the flowers to stay on the bottom... they take a little bit to absorb water and will sink, but over a few hours they start to float up.  I'm going to glue a stone (or two) to the flower to anchor it down.  Does anyone know if hot glue will work when submerged in water?

 

 

So about $17 each...  rolleyes.gif

 

I'm doing real flowers for everything else but the centerpieces.

Thats great if they are giving you a deal on hydrengas! My centerpieces do range from $65 to $150....

 

Here is what my wedding coordinator wrote me inregards to my question about available flowers:

 

4) I'm still looking for pictures and ideas for our centerpieces. Are there certain flowers you recommend? the flowers available are liliies, cala lilies, gerbers, roses, gladiolos, tropical flowers, we also offer other type of flowers that are more expensives here in Dominican Republic, as orchids, hidrangeas, small colorfull cala lilies etc

 

Is your florist making you a mock up?

Beautifuly done!

Is your reception indoors or outdoors? I'm just afraid about the floating candle being blown out...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
