Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

This is my newest 'project'. I am so glad I read that someone got stuff from Ikea. I am from CO, where there is no Ikea, so I always kind of forget it exists! But I went to the site, and I'm going in a couple of weeks to get these!! I'll use the votives (only 49 cents each!) throughout, and the taller vases w/ water and floating candles (orange and pink, $1.99 each). With these vases, you can group them together to make a circle, wavy line, or just use them alone. That, mixed with some of the resorts bouquets I think will be great!

 

Also note: the vases are available in a blue and purple variation as well, in case anyone is interested.

these ideas are amazing, thank you! now i have to make some decisions!

 

did anyone get married in mexico? i've heard it can be windy, my resort don't recommend candles.

 

also, i heard you can't easily get hold of lemons in Mexico, as they have lemons, but they are the green kind (limes).

 

my theme is lemon and navy, so i'm having a think. definitely want starfish involved too, as they were the theme of our invites etc :)

I saw this online too & I think it looks great! just wondering, are you planning to bring everything with you? Most of the vases I've found have weighed a ton!

I am finding that to be a problem too.. everything I want to bring either weighs a ton or is really fragile.

I have decided on a tealight glass trio sitting on metal/silver charger plates with white table clothes and black table runners. Then if I can find it, hot pink (shiny) confetti around the charger plate.

I will post a picture once I get it set up and figure out how!

Here is what we are thinking...the pictures aren't the best but you will get the idea. Each frame will either have a picture of us at one of the places we lived (i was a travel RN so we traveled alot) or a quote about love from a famous movie

My mom wanted to see it all set up with her plates, the starfish is being attached to the favors

Also, I will surround them with bright pink flower petals to add some color before the sun goes down.
PVBride, I LOVE this idea with the greenery!

Ok stupid question, how do you get the flowers to sink? I have square glass vases and I want to do the drowning flowers. Any way to do this without using floating candles to hold them down? Thanks!

    • Economics as a career is highly rewarding in the current environment. We need economists to study agriculture in an increasingly changing global weather patterns, decode financial implications of economic plans as well as help the government formulates administrative policies. Economics Honours graduates are in high demand in almost every Fortune 500 company as well for top government jobs. The options with this degree are endless.   If you are among those thousands of students looking for a career as an Economics Honours graduate but have no idea how - don’t worry. We have got you covered! Read on to know all about one of India’s most preferred courses and what are the career options after economics honours (some really fancy ones!) that open up for you with an Economics Honours degree.
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far?
