I recently found out that my wedding package doesn't include centerpieces & the resort charges an outrageous amount for them. To top it off, I am not allowed to use an outside flower shop unless I want to pay a lovely $300 USD penalty.

 

So since I have tons of time I decided to come to this amazing website and search for inspiration ;) I came up with a sample centerpiece that I want to share with you. If you have made your own centerpieces and feel like sharing them please post them here.

 

I bought everything from dollar tree (all amounts are in CAD eh?)

 

fake flowers $1.25

long stem candle holders $1.25 each x 3= $3.75

vase $1.25

all 3 floating candles $1.25

tealight candles $1.25

 

TOTAL $8.75

 

I was also thinking of buying rose petals and scatter them around the vase. Also, I am not 100% convinced on the colour of the floating candles, but for now it will do. (Wedding colours are coral and gold)

 

One of my bridesmaids suggested using gel instead of water, so I may play around with that and see how it turns out.

 

 

Another thing I was thinking is getting submergible LED lights for the vase.

post-275068-0-20425000-1395434040.jpg@deedeelala That looks very nice. Great job. I am doing something similar for centerpieces for the welcome reception.

 

I ordered the shells online ( $7.00/bag) and ordered the floating candles. I am going to fill up shells a bit higher than what's in the photo.

How will you pack the vases? I like the idea but I think we will have more than 10 tables and that seems like a lot of luggage!

Thanks ladies!!

 

As for bringing them down there, we are asking everyone in our wedding party to bring one for us. We have a large wedding party of 16 people altogether plus some other family members offered to help bring one. Otherwise I was willing to pay for extra luggage, it would still be cheaper than getting the centerpieces from the resort. I got their quote back and the cheapest one was around $90 and did not include any candles :o :o :o

Yup. bringing along your centrepieces is definitely the way to go! Great idea of having your wedding party each pack one too- saves on carrying them all down yourself!! Great work!

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
