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!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
