    Pro, if I were to do it myself it would end up costing twice as much and looking terrible lol

    Pro. Florist is doing centerpieces and venue is providing votive candles. We did do our table numbers though (ordered and printed a template).

    Pro. Our venue provides the main centerpiece item (a silver lantern with crystals and an led candle). FH and I purchased wooden brain teaser puzzles and glittery diamonds to add to the tables.

    Not sure yet. Might be DIY, might be pro or might be a mix of both.

    Little mix of both. I sourced and bought everything for the lantern centerpieces, then the florist made a little greenery wreath to go around it and helped to set everything up.

    I'm doing a combination of pro (floral arrangements) and DIY (lanterns and candles).

    Definitely DIY'ing these. I'm still in the process of making them, so I have no photo yet... but there was no way for me to buy the centerpiece look I was going for.

    I settled for Pro. I wish I could do the DIY stuff but I just didn't feel like it and it would cost just as much as going with a pro.

    DIY, but only because we happened to choose something we actually can handle ourselves. Our centerpieces will be silver mercury glass vases (making myself using Dollar Tree vases and Rustoleum Mercury Glass spray paint) with fresh baby's breath inside. It will be surrounded by scattered white candles on slabs of birch that we're cutting from the annual tree clean-up at the family cabin.

    If we were doing beautiful floral arrangements or something elaborate, I'd absolutely go pro as we simply don't have the skills!
