One way to cut back on centerpieces. - people often overlook designing table set ups in non-traditional fashions and focusing on tablescapes rather than centerpieces to cut costs. Wish I had this at my wedding!
Paper lanterns as light-up centerpieces--inexpensive idea. Slip a Vase in the middle of each lantern and add flowers of choice. OR just adhere silk flowers to top edge of lantern.Put BATTERY OPERATED CANDLES/lighting inside and around each lantern.
