They were really cute

Here is a detail shot of the flowers. We asked our florist to use inexpensive varieties for the tables (and splurged on the bouquet/boutonniere flowers since those were more important to me). I know the vases had green kermit mums, alstroemeria, and green hypericum berries.

Wow those are gorgeous! I would never know that you didn't splurge on these too. Very pretty!

Thanks Tonir. The table flowers were extra cheap because they were re-used the next day for a local chamber of commerce banquet. That's another way for brides to save money - see if you can share the centerpiece flower cost with another event, since you likely aren't going to have any use for them after your wedding reception. Those flower varieties were extremely long lasting, even in heat.

This is a photograph from our home reception...my hubby and I made them all! The branches were collected from our backyard, I glued on each individual flower, the glass vase is from Michaels along with the green hydrangeas. The votive candles came in packs of 12 for $8. My very talented husband wire each one (80 of them!) so they could hang on the branches. In total each centerpiece cost us about $40 and the results were incredible. We got tons of compliments!

I have 8 centerpieces for sale from my previous post #348 if anyone is interested. They were used at our home reception. Note, they are 4 feet tall. I'd prefer if they were picked up from our home in Jackson, NJ. Please pm me if you're interested! Thanks :)

hi everyone! just wanted to share my centerpiece inspiration. instead of using river rocks as a filler i'm going to use beach sand so it's one less thing to bring to mexico and i'll save money! i might buy a few artificial flowers or purchase single stems at a florist in mexico.

i bought these wooden planters at ikea which are about $5 each. i might tie a ribbon around it. i'm not sure if i should paint them white or if i should leave them raw for a more natural, beachy feel. not sure yet. thoughts?

since it's real sea fans won't pass through customs i'm going to buy artificial ones and maybe paint them or leave as is since red is one of wedding colors.

oooo i like it shae!!

 

as for the boxes...are you tables going to be white?? if so then painting them might blend in too much? i like the color of the wood, but it gives me more of a rustic feeling instead of beachy, kwim?

    • 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
