- Wedding: May 2013
This morning my bridesmaid and I went to the venue to stage a table. I have had this idea in my mind for the past 3 months and I needed to see how it really looked. We initially wanted candles, then when I found a vendor that rents floral centerpieces, I temporarily lost my mind. I actually signed the contract and then cancelled the next day. I needed to get back to my basics. We never envisioned our wedding with a bunch of flowers around us. I don’t even like flowers. We wanted a more intimate setting. I came across a picture of a lantern and immediately became obsessed. So here it is……..
I found these lanterns at Ikea $7. The pillar candles are 4 for $2.99. The picture frame will hold an I SPY game on one side and the table number on the other. It will also be painted fuschia. That was $.99. The table runner was $3.99 from an online site. For us to decorate 12 tables and a head table, the grand total is less than $400!!
P.S…..I keep saying I, because my FH has done his share of wedding planning which included picking the venue, picking a date, providing input on colors, and going to a food tasting. He is officially done…so he thinks.
