        I'm thinking all white tables would be pretty. With a touch of pink in candles or maybe the menu!

         

        I wish hydrengas were not so expensive in the DR:(

          I was inquiring about flowers to a florist in the area and they said hydrengas were one of the more cost efficient flowers with peonies being one of the most expensive. He sent me images of arrangments with roses and various flowers, including hydrengas, that ranged from $75 to $135 in price. Not sure of your budget though and preferences.

            These are the start of my centerpieces!  The vase is actually bigger than it looks, (6.125"L x 6.125"W x 8"H) And I will be using white floating candles not those tea lights!  My colors are magenta/lime.. and orchids are my flowers.  I plan on boxing each centerpiece ready to go and having each of my bridesmaids be responsible for 1 in their carry on. The WC will just have to add H2O! (and I won't spend ANY time on them while down there!)

             

            What do you think?!

                The Vase was about $5, the orchid stem was $3.99 from AC Moore (without a coupon), I'm estimating 4 candles to be about $5 and the ribbon which will do all 8 centerpieces was 2 for $5.00,  I used a small bag of stones for the bottom.  I plan on buying these in bulk and using coupons.

                 

                I want the flowers to stay on the bottom... they take a little bit to absorb water and will sink, but over a few hours they start to float up.  I'm going to glue a stone (or two) to the flower to anchor it down.  Does anyone know if hot glue will work when submerged in water?

                 

                 

                So about $17 each... 

                 

                I'm doing real flowers for everything else but the centerpieces.

                    Thats great if they are giving you a deal on hydrengas! My centerpieces do range from $65 to $150....

                     

                    Here is what my wedding coordinator wrote me inregards to my question about available flowers:

                     

                    4) I'm still looking for pictures and ideas for our centerpieces. Are there certain flowers you recommend? the flowers available are liliies, cala lilies, gerbers, roses, gladiolos, tropical flowers, we also offer other type of flowers that are more expensives here in Dominican Republic, as orchids, hidrangeas, small colorfull cala lilies etc

                     

                    Is your florist making you a mock up?

                      Beautifuly done!

                      Is your reception indoors or outdoors? I'm just afraid about the floating candle being blown out...
