What do you think of these centerpieces?

by DIY wedding planner on May 6, 2012

I am getting married this summer and have decided to DIY mt centerpieces for the tables of the wedding reception. I didn’t want to do anything with flowers. While doing some research I came across some picture luminaires. What you do is put 3 picture frames together and add pictures on vellum. My picture frames are clear with words around the border such as i love you, forever and always, you’re the one, etc. I have used a hot glue gun to glue the frames together using as little glue as possible. You can still see the glue but its not too much where it just stands out. I am going to do the battery powered tea lights in the center of them. What do you think of this idea???

Side with the names and dates of wedding


Side with a saying /quote


Side with a picture


What is your honest opinion good idea or should i think of something else???
I really am second guessing myself. I will be using different pictures of different stages in our relationship up to now. We have been together for 5 yrs so we have plently of pictures to choose from.

I really like the pic you’re using. You’re my kind of couple. They look nice. Don’t second guess yourself.

I thnk the centerpieces are beautiful, however, despite the fact that I love the pic you used, I would suggest getting a professional photograph taken of the two of you.
The reason is, the glass and font used on the centerpieces indicates a very elegant and classy
mood. If you throw in a casual picture, then it kind of throws the entire look off.

when i was reading your description i was thinking oooo that sounds sort of tacky but i really like it! I think the one with your name and date needs bigger writing but aside from that these are really cute! and totally different!
if you wanted to dress it up a little more you could get silk rose petals (they are really cheap on ebay.com and look really good) and have them around the base of the photo frames so the centrepiece is sitting in rose petals. but i really like these! and i think using a casual photo is good because it’s the real you, the way everyone always sees you and it will make them smile!

It is interesting, but try to envision your whole room with these as center pieces. I think it will look a bit “harsh”.

Yes, I like third one–with the picture of you two together. I think it’ll be a great idea to put different pictures of you two throughout your relationship! How sweet! Great idea!
