We are starting to put together our centerpieces! (no pictures as of yet)

I was wondering what you all are doing for your sweetheart table! Are you doing the same thing as the centerpieces on your other tables? We are planning on having different size vases with floating candles. Something similar to this. What would you recommend we do for the sweetheart table?

    Many times, my couples re-use their bouquets as centerpieces for the sweetheart or head tables to get the most use of them. We just put them into vases or lay them down on the table facing the center of the room.

    For our sweetheart table I have a big foam letter R (FH's last name) that I will be poking fake flowers into for a big flowery R deco, my bouquet in a vase with smaller vases around it with small singular flowers, and then a sequin table runner I think. I'm a big flower girl instead of candles, but I love your inspo pic! Cant wait to see how they turn out!

    @edecker, that sounds awesome! I know our table won't be very big, but I don't want it to look emtpy either. I may use my bouquet to fill empty space like @talia suggested

    We used the same table runner so it blended but just put my bouquet into a vase for our centerpiece. It was perfect!

    We are doing a head table and between each man and woman will be the bouquet of the woman.

    I'm just reusing my bouquet like a pp said. There will be an empty vase there waiting. I'm also thinking about one of those mr&mrs signs, but I haven't purchased one yet.

    We did candles as well. This is what we did on our table. The letters were painted gold. And we used ivory candles.

    We had my bouquet and a sign, but otherwise it was the same as the others. We also had a loveseat instead of the traditional chairs.

    Photo before the plates, my bouquet, and full setup were there.

    Thanks everyone! My bouquet will be pretty big so I'll likely do something similar

    I think it'll be pretty much the same arrangement as my guest tables in the same mercury glass compote bowl. I'm debating adding an extra table so our guests aren't super squished... so I'd use it for that & just put my bouquet at our table so I don't have to pay for another centerpiece. We aren't doing a standard scheduled dinner, so I don't really care what our sweetheart looks like since we might not even sit there. It'll look something like this but in all whites & champagne roses & possibly a couple succulents for the grey/blue. (These are also doubling as my ceremony flowers so I'm really into repurposing things)
