    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.

     

    Fabulous I loved your ideas very affordable and budget friendly. We had similar kind of theme in my sisters wedding and we had splurged a lot of money for getting the perfect.

    I have the same issue - we're trying to figure out right now what to do for our center pieces...

    Are you traveling with all of this? I'm hesitant about DIY projects because I'm not sure how well it will travel, if things will get lost, etc....


    I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

    Those look great! I'm doing luminaries for my centerpieces since its outdoor reception on the beach. I think bringing them is def the way to go. I never understood paying these florists a lot of money for some flowers that will be thrown out the next day.

    These are very nice! Great job! I agree resorts ask an outrageous price for any decorations.
