I don't know what to do. I have a wedding date for June, because I think it's a great month to be a bride. I need some help as far as decorations and centerpieces. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thank you.

I did my sisters 30th revow. We used clear glass vases, all round, and put in some colored water (food coloring) in blues, pinks, yellows, greens and purples. These were her colors, all pastels. Then, you pour in just enough vegetable oil to seal the water inside. You can then float the inexpensive candles on the top. You can put some fake flowers in the water before it's sealed, or the dollar tree rocks that look so pretty.
We sprinkled confetti on the tables, which caught the fire light. It was amazing and cost us .90 per table as the vases were the churches and thus donated. I hope this helps. Try it out before the big day to make sure you like the idea and are doing it right and safely.
My daughter was an August bride, but you might like her centerpieces: she and her fiance-turned-hubby printed pages of origami patterns and instructions. They rolled each like a scroll and tied each with thin cloth ribbon in their wedding colors. They put several scrolls at each table in mini-baskets. Guests were invited to try their hand at creating their own wedding favor...a two-in-one.
Use your own imagination, ideas from weddings you have attended, visit art and craft stores to see what they have. None of us know what you like.
Go to Wal-mart ($ 1.50 for 50) and get some white lunch bags and cut off the perforated edges (about a inch or so) put your hand in the bag with one hand and pinch the bottom of the bag with the other and twist and push down with to make a 6"paper rose. Then staple (two staples on each side) them together to make a swag for your fence or hall. Make ropes of around 20 roses because of the weight and to make them easy to handle with out pulling them out of shape. You can also make a ring with 8 of them and a candle/or flowers in the middle for your center piece. I am doing this at my wedding in three days. This is for my back yard wedding and it looks very very good and very low cost. Have fun, you might be able to find colored bags at a party store use a little spray paint on the edge of the bags before you make them. They are very easy to make and take no time to make maybe a minute if that.
