hi friends! I'm looking for some feedback / ideas on our centerpiece mock-ups....

 

A few ideas/comments:

  • I'm planning to frost the bottles, so it's a little softer 
  • we have 8 tables and my initial thought is to do a different flower arrangement for each table
  • Plan to use the silk flowers to help keep costs down
  • yes, the vase is a small patron/tequila bottle
  • do the flowers/vase add to the centerpiece or do they distract? Are the flowers needed or does the bottle on it's own look ok?
  • FI likes the first and last photo the best... 

 

Thoughts? feedback? love em? hate em?

I like your concept, I think the tequila bottles are cute.  The first one looks best since it has some contrast and a couple of colors to add interest.  However, I would splurge a little and get real flowers.  For 8 tables you only need 2 dozen flowers.  (3 each vase) Always use odd numbers in design...3 or 5..... you could easily get gerber daisys or roses and shouldn't be too much money for 2 dozen? I would use real rose petals too...again not that much money for 8 tables and will add a lot to your décor.  Good luck!

Thanks! I changed it up a bit... removed the petals - it suddenly hit me that the petals look weird because they couldn't have 'fallen' off any of the flowers... 

 

also - we are not doing real flowers because the resort charges way more than you'd think, even for just 2 dozen flowers - I think the last quote I got was $100 for 2 dozen... outrageous! we can't bring in our own real flowers, not without paying the outside vendor fee. so, enter fake flowers. No one remembers centerpieces anyway, but we still wanted them to look nice :). at the end of the day, this setup is $21 per table vs. the $90/each centerpieces from Lomas. 

 

here's the updated design... (the bottle will be frosted and the word will be painted gold)

@@DnD hi! I actually got them from a few different sources because I was struggling to find nice looking ones. 

 

My favorite ones are from Amazon

some are from Ikea

Silk flowers are actually a bit more environmentally friendly than their real counterparts – it all has to do with how they're shipped. Due to their infinite shelf life, it can be transported more slowly, so they are typically shipped by sea freight rather than air freight, according to Slate. It is great if you are having a destination wedding in a tropical climate.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
