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.
