Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

I got them at www.wedding-linens.com but we actually aren't using them now.  We changed our centerpieces and I wanted the flowers to be the wow factor and not the runners.  So we are just doing votive candles and the silver chargers with these centerpieces.  But the runners are really pretty and very sparkly!! I may bring one or two down to decorate the cake table with, but I'm not sure! Have you tried Walmart?? LL Anyone know where to get cheap 2" or 3" wide pillar candle holders?  I'm looking to add some tall pillars to the bar area but can't find anything cheap enough that I'm willing to leave at the hotel after

I did look at Ikea for the lanterns (which we bought there) but didn't buy them since I thought I'd find them elsewhere...not the case apparently :( I may have to take another day trip up to Ikea again! Was hoping someone may have any other ideas online or somewhere closer to home.

Which lanterns from ikea are you using??? I plan on using one borrby lantern in the centre (with pillar candle) then on either side one small steel pail with flowers. All of this on a burlap runner

Very pretty! That's the lantern we are taking too! I thought I'd like the silver but I ended up choosing the black ones so they stand out against the white table cloth and fushcia table runner. I'm still debating on what to use with the lanterns as I don't feel like paying a fortune flowers...leaning towards tissue poms or something else I can make ahead of time.

How are you bringing yours? I have to bring 5 and I have 1 30" hard case suitcase so I'm really hoping they will be fine in that and not break. Ya I understand about the flowers but luckily my flower shop I'm working with has very reasonable prices compared to alot of quotes I've seen other brides get. It's costing us $200 for the flowers for 8 pails (4 tables) and I'm brining down the pails.... The 99 cent ones from ikea lol. Our head table will just have the two bridesmaids bouquets in glass vases on either side of the lantern.

We are doing manzanita tree branches with hanging crystals.  I am getting the branches at the resort, and I've collected/bought all my crystals here in various shapes in sizes.  My inspiration: LL
Very pretty! Did you have to provide your own tall vases?

We're bringing down 8!!! And even though they pack flat they're bulky and 8 pounds a piece so I'm worried about his we're going to get then there. Would love to check them all in a Rubbermaid Crate but then we'd be WAY over the weight limit so I'm praying each person can carry two each and they won't break in our suitcases!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
