Here’s a mock up of my centerpieces. In the actual wedding, there will be real flowers, a white table cloth under the runner, the candles will be lit, and the rocks will be filled to the top of the vase….But, you get the idea.
I’m really liking how the centerpieces have tured out so far, but any suggestions would be appreciated! Now, I’m trying to figure out what to do with the flowers. My flowers are going to be white and fuschia gerbera daisies. I can’t decide if I should mix the flowers, or do half white centerpieces and half fuschia centerpieces. I’m not going to use fuschia ribbon, only because when I looked at gerberas, I noticed that “fuschia” can be a range of colors, and I wouldn’t want it to clash with the ribbon.
So, option 1….Half white centerpieces and half fuschia centerpieces..
Or option 2….Mixed the colors in the same centerpiece..
My boquet will be put on this slightly taller stand on the head table. That’s the reason why it has the third layer of ribbon (and is the only one with fuschia). I’m thinking my boquet will be mixed, but I’m not sure right now. I might just do fuschia for my boquet….Ahhh, decisions 🙂

I like what you have going here. My advice would just be fuller/more flowers in the vases. I like the colors separated. If you can get like a somewhat rounder & fuller shape to the flowers, it will look gorgeous!!

I like the colors mixed together. It will give continuity to the reception.

I would maybe cut the stems on the flowers so they were closer to the vase and they would appear more full. Otherwise, I love the concept! What is the filler? I am looking for black filler and the only cost effective option so far has been black fish tank rock.

I love these. Great job. For some reason I do not like how the white and pink flowers look mixed together. I think if you would stay with solid colors it would look amazing. Even if you alternated colors at the tables.

I feel whatever color flowers you use.. if they’re cut closer to the top of the vase..the better they will look. More coessive.

I like them separated. I think it would be nice contrast. I also agree that the stems should be cut shorter. It would make the daisies appear fuller in the vase so you might not need as many. Anything to cut down on costs!!

Thanks so much for all the advice! I knew there was something I wasn’t liking about the flowers, and now I realize it’s how tall the stems are! As for the colors, I think I’m leaing towards having the colors seperated (with the exception of at the head table. I’m using my boquet and the girls boquets as the flowers for the centerpieces at the headtable to cut down on costs), but I’m still thinking about that (hey, I never said I was a decisive person :))
As for the rocks, I got mine at the Dollar Tree….I was originally looking at Hobby Lobby, and couldn’t believe how expensive they were! Then I stumbled across them in the Dollar Tree and was a lot happier 🙂 The bags they sell there aren’t huge (I think it will take 2 bags to fill my vases), but at least it’s a little better on the wallet!
