How To Make: Tall Floral Centerpiece!!

So I've been looking all over the Internet for Instructions on making the Tall Floral Arrangement Centerpiece of my Dreams! I would Love to have a big Centerpiece set on a Tall Clear Glass Vase with a long strand of Orchids floating in the vase. I just can't justify spending $300-$500 PER Centerpiece. I'm paying for my entire wedding on my own, so I have no choice but to be Frugal! I do not have a Platinum Wedding Budget!-Too Bad! So I'm going to Order my flowers from an online wholesale floral company & do a trial run in a few months.


So I found a Series of Videos on YouTube.com with Step By Step Instructions (& general list of Supplies) On How to make a Tall Floral Arrangement WITH Floating Orchids in the Tall Glass Vase.


It was really annoying & Time Consuming to fit the Videos together in the right Order because they Did not put them in a particular Sequence when they posted it on youtube. The Videos are each pretty short & at times a bit confusing but you basically get the gist of it......


P.S.--Do you think it would work to substitute the type of flowers I would prefer to have at my wedding? Roses, Tulips, Carnations, etc...? Thanks for your input & I hope the videos help someone else out!


So I ve been photo 1246687-1

Oh Cool jjpeng I can't wait to see how yours turn out! Let me know if it's a lot harder than it looks! lol. 


What kind of Flowers will you be using?? Lots of Roses?- like your inspiration pic??   That's similar to what I want too except either dark Red flowers, or all white flowers. (I'm Bi-Polar when it comes to my Color theme)


I want to use a lot of roses & fill the spaces with carnations & other flowers (haven't decided yet)


I'm Excited!!
