Floating Centerpieces…

…Submurged In Love!

Every time I think about  helping my aunt plan my cousin’s wedding last year, I laugh.  Why?  Because I was trying to offer creative ideas to my aunt and ended up saying to her, “You know what would be really cool?  If you put water into the vases!”, (duh)!  She laughed at me and replied with, “No kidding?  What a concept!”.

Yes.  I know.  Apparently it’s quite common to put water into a vase.  Amazing, isn’t it?  However, what I was actually talking about was submerging flowers or other items into the water for the centerpieces, like a couple of these pictures shown below…

I also love the idea of putting whatever else your little heart desires into vases or bowls.  For more ideas, visit this week’s guest blog post over at the Wishpot Weddings blog!  Let your imagination flow.

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on lavish floral centerpieces to make your wedding glamorous.  You just have to get a little creative and spend a little time to find exactly what you want, to make your centerpieces fit within your wedding color, theme and most importantly, budget.  Happy planning!
