    OK girls, I need your opinions. We are having our big wedding party in June. I am doing real feel flowers instead of real. These are our centerpieces...what do you think? The color is crappy in the video... if it was too light in the room the centerpiece colors wouldn't show up. So the pic is the exact color of the flowers. Sorry about the shaky camera & messy house in the background!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the bright colors!! Definitely fits the "Miami" theme you mentioned in another post. They are very pretty. The light up centerpieces are super cool! :Cool: :ThumbsUp:

    i think that looks really really cool! but what do you want the tone of your party to be? ambient or playful? if you want the tone to be a little classier while still being a little edgy (the LED lights in the vase look awesome, btw.. whats in there, a color changing bulb with marbles in the vase?) then maybe white or some sort of unified color palate would be good for the flowers, but if you want it to have a fun playful side, then the colored flowers are very nice. i think those look great, too, considering they arent real.

    But, now that you mention Miami, the colors are just perfect for that theme. dont want to forgo color when going for a Miami theme!

    We are both pretty active people so we want it to be pretty crazy. It is actually crystals that look like sea salt you have to soak in water for 12 hours & they turn into a gel in the vase.

    ahh yeah! ive seen those. they seem cool. probably a lot cheaper than marbles, and besides that, you can actually get rid of it at the end of the night instead of being stuck with gallons and gallons of marbles. good call.

    Oh, I wish I designed those; I'm not that talented! Lol I seen a similar centerpiece done by Preston Bailey & the woman who did all the flowers only does real feel flowers... You would think fake would be cheaper.... Ummmmm not, but I love the obnoxious colors. Really weird thing they smell real.

    Oooooo that's nice we have to pay for everything, which sux but then people can't really say well I think you should do it this way or don't do this or that, so I guess it makes it easier since nothing I do is very traditional! LOL!:LOL: a lot of people say you can't do it that way... I just tell them it isn't their wedding.

    They are beautiful. You'll have to show us how everything looks when it's all decorated.

    I think all those OCD's you have Kerrie are bound to make everything to perfection! Love the center piece's; like Brooke said has the Miami vibe down! Can't wait to see it all come together!!!!
