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.

    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!
