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?

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
