Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

This is my newest 'project'. I am so glad I read that someone got stuff from Ikea. I am from CO, where there is no Ikea, so I always kind of forget it exists! But I went to the site, and I'm going in a couple of weeks to get these!! I'll use the votives (only 49 cents each!) throughout, and the taller vases w/ water and floating candles (orange and pink, $1.99 each). With these vases, you can group them together to make a circle, wavy line, or just use them alone. That, mixed with some of the resorts bouquets I think will be great!

 

Also note: the vases are available in a blue and purple variation as well, in case anyone is interested.

these ideas are amazing, thank you! now i have to make some decisions!

 

did anyone get married in mexico? i've heard it can be windy, my resort don't recommend candles.

 

also, i heard you can't easily get hold of lemons in Mexico, as they have lemons, but they are the green kind (limes).

 

my theme is lemon and navy, so i'm having a think. definitely want starfish involved too, as they were the theme of our invites etc :)

I saw this online too & I think it looks great! just wondering, are you planning to bring everything with you? Most of the vases I've found have weighed a ton!

I am finding that to be a problem too.. everything I want to bring either weighs a ton or is really fragile.

I have decided on a tealight glass trio sitting on metal/silver charger plates with white table clothes and black table runners. Then if I can find it, hot pink (shiny) confetti around the charger plate.

I will post a picture once I get it set up and figure out how!

Here is what we are thinking...the pictures aren't the best but you will get the idea. Each frame will either have a picture of us at one of the places we lived (i was a travel RN so we traveled alot) or a quote about love from a famous movie

My mom wanted to see it all set up with her plates, the starfish is being attached to the favors

Also, I will surround them with bright pink flower petals to add some color before the sun goes down.
PVBride, I LOVE this idea with the greenery!

Ok stupid question, how do you get the flowers to sink? I have square glass vases and I want to do the drowning flowers. Any way to do this without using floating candles to hold them down? Thanks!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
