Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

I'm still super torn on centerpieces!  I want as little as possible to carry with me, but I have to have a table number.  I was thinking a vellum wrapped around an electric candle may be a great option for table numbers because then it will still fold flat.

We brought them, because we only had 3 tabels. Renting was so absurdly overpriced, and my MOH had them leftover from her wedding. So we brought down all of our decor, just checked an extra bag.

Yup, stuffed clothes in them! And then wrapped them in lots of clothes/our sashes and table runners. We were trying to make the most out of our luggage space. Everything made it down in one piece. Go figure the day after the wedding my husband accidentally knocks one and breaks it :P

We did not want to waste money on flowers and our beautiful beach setting needed little to be added. We used mirrors to reflect the light and surrounding candles. We also added Patron Silver bottles to each table, this brought in our green color and invited guests to take them with them to the after party (though some guests opened them at dinner! :)) And finally we used limes to number our tables. It was simple and didn't take up much room.
