Anyone diy their centerpieces?

I have been thinking about doing the centerpieces for the wedding myself. Am I nuts to consider doing this? Did any of you diy your centerpieces?


My wedding theme is peacock. Ideas:

Lots of people do, I'm planning to. I'm just having simple green roses tied in a cube vase (I think!) so there isn't a huge amount of work involved.
Both of your ideas are beautiful

I did ours.  I got vases and painted each of them and then added sand, stones and a candle.  There were 12 of them I believe.  Here are one or two, and the rest are in my bio.

We are DIYing our centerpieces! I'm taking Thursday and Friday off prior to our Saturday evening wedding to give myself time to put them together. The flowers should arrive Thursday morning and I'm hoping to have them all finished by Friday evening. We should have roughly 10 centerpieces for the reception, 5 high and 5 low. Plus 10 small cocktail table centerpieces, 4 bouquets, and 10 boutonnieres.


Here's a mock up of the low centerpiece I did with fake flowers we had around the house.

I think it's totally doable if you have the time and friends/family to help you put them together. =)

Thanks ladies!


I didn't expect to see so many of you do your own centerpieces. They are all lovely btw!! I am now definitely going to attempt to do my centerpieces myself.

I did not, simply because I found someone to them for me for less than what I would have paid to buy everything...but you totally could! If you are creative and have the time, this is usually a time saver!! Your ideas are beautiful :)
