    @Tori-

           I like to sand/seashell idea too. The stones are nice, but definitely too dark. I think sand will help with the shells, and it will be a nice anchor if it's windy. What are your colors? My only worry is that I see no color in the centerpieces, but then again, I have no idea what the rest of your accents are, and you don't want to overkill the color scheme.

          I definitely love the votives around it. The height is great because it makes it formal without being....bushy. I hate when I go to weddings and I can't see the person sitting across from me

         And lastly, it is, of course, very beachy, and it fits perfectly with the open air location. Did you glue on the little seashells, or did it come like that? Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks very much for your feedback.  

      - The reeds are natural and a turquoise/dark blue.  Our colours are Navy and Green with a LOT of white running through.  It would have been perfect had they been NAVY and natural but the deepness of the aqua-ish colour works well.  It brings in a little colour without it being overpowering.  I am not big on "Matchy-Matchy" colour schemes but that is just me.  We are going with No chair bows, table runners etc. So our "colours" are actually just pops!  I am thinking we may bring the votives/tea lights in our navy colour to incorporate it

       

      - I totally agree with being able to see across the table.  They aren't bushy (great word choice) so I think conversation should still flow well!

       

      - The sea shells actually came on there already!!!! That is what me buy one package to start with, I was like ohhhh this is beachy maybe this could work for something.  I like the little added it brings and ties it back into the "theme"

       

      Thanks again, I really appreciate any and all feedback!!!!

        Of Stefanie - I think it is time I start calling you by your name and not just "starfish" lol, I had to creep on your profile picture to figure it out! I love you "S" btw off topic but what font is that?  Is your new last name an S initial?  You guys will have a LOT of S going on!!!!!!!! We are also an "S" last name so my initials wont be changing from my maiden name either.

         

        Anyways, back on topic!!!!!!  Here are a few centrepiece INSPIRATION pics I thought I would share.... I know there is at least 1 other bride who is thinking of doing submerged orchids so hopefully these help!

          You are too funny! Thankfully my new last name will be with an R!  For the monogram because it is going on our invites I didn't want to use an R in the center as we won't be married yet, perhaps a bit old school but...  I had wanted to capitalize S&S but it looked funny so I just used the one and well that's where I ended...  Still a work in progress of course!  Oh and the font is Mutlu something... found it on dafont.  Only big scripty S I could find...

           

          Anywho..  Thank you for the extra pictures!  I definitely have the one with the stones saved, thinking perhaps for my cocktail hour tables but may way to do just purple instead... still have time for that decision but I've now saved the others into my folder!  Thanks again!!

              haha you are great!!!! the dress definitely is a statement I dont think people are expecting so I want to make sure it is not all so OVER THE TOP and I think by keeping decor more minimal we will get the right feel.  I will make an impact with events, OOTs, and the way we do thing not necessarily the look of things!!! hopefully I am not disappointed!!!!!

               

              6 months to the day today!!!!!!

                      I have a question that is totally not centerpiece related, but.... in the monogram, does his initial come first or mine? I've seen both, but I didn't know if there was a "proper" way. For example, my name is Alli and his is Jeremy. So would it be...

                       

                      1. ASJ

                      or

                      2. JSA

                       

                      Thanks for all of your help! :)
