Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts


Love these!  Are you bringing all of the materials with you or hoping to buy stuff while down there?

We're just putting the 3 of them on each table and then putting votives around them to provide a bit more lighting.

I am trying to come up with an idea for inexpensive centerpieces.   Our colors are fuchsia and orange.  I got these black trays and fuchsia candles at IKEA and added some sand and shells.  Let me know what you think.  Are the fuchsia candles too much?  Should I just go with white?  Any suggestions?

Mocha, If those candles are from Ikea, you can always buy them ahead of time and and do a test run to see how long they burn.  I

I think the fuschia candles are a good idea so they contrast with the light colored sand.  One question I have for you:  where are you having your reception?  If it is outside, will the wind blow them out?  I only ask because I have heard it will be windy on the beach at my resort so exposed candles won't work for me.

 

As for how long they will burn - if they don't last for the whole reception I don't think it is a big deal.  To me, centerpieces are about the first impression and during dinner.  After that people are up and dancing.

Our reception is inside, so no worries about the wind.  I don't really like the black of the tray though the more I look at it.  I put together another one but I have not been able to find fuchsia or orange candles yet.  What do you think of this one?  How could I incorporate our colors?

I like the clear better than the black also and the larger pillar looks better too! You could use smaller votive candles around the larger centerpiece with your colors or you could add tropical flowers in your colors. Love the addition of the starfish!

That is a beautiful centerpiece! I prefer the glass tray to the black one...Is there any way you could mix orange and fucsia candles? Why don´t you put the candles inside a vase so that they last burning longer?

I like the second one too.  To add in your colors you could always do a ribbon around the candle in one or both of your wedding colors.  I love that look.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
