Most beautiful centerpieces ever.

Thank you to Bill for your creativity and to both Mom and Bill for getting the supplies and creating these! I couldn't have put together a more beautiful centerpiece myself! Of course, they follow our Florida beach theme and yet maintain the elegance suited for an evening wedding. They're going to add just the right amount of romantic glow to the ballroom too. Eek, I can't wait! Aren't these just the most beautiful centerpieces ever?

I've got color crazy!

Color sets the tone for the entire event, so needless to say, it was a big deal to me. It became a sleep-depriving obsession! Now that we are going with the coral and aqua scheme (perhaps with grey as an accent in small doses...), I can focus on the original intent of this blog- money saving deals! Whether it be finding the most beautiful and cost-effective ceremony sites (think public places like a park or your home church!), or negotiating little-known discounts with your reception venue or DJ, I'll be here to share my finds with you! Hope you've enjoyed scouring my color inspiration, but it's time to move forward!

Aqua + Coral

I have chosen these fabulous summer colors for our wedding!

aqua, coral, peach

Stunning combo.

Coral and Navy is DEF a new favorite.


Coral and navy is definitely one of my new favorites. I have to say, I think a gentle aqua would compliment this pair marvelously.

Can't go wrong colors!

Pink, coral and green!

Blushing light pink and seafoam blue/green!

Aqua and emerald!

Aqua and red!
Pink, orange and light blue!

Coral, lime & light pink!

-Many of these photos are from It's an absolutely fabulous site, so if you're planning a wedding make sure you check there for inspiration!

Ocean, fresh berries, pucker-up citrus!

Whether your wedding is a seaside outdoor escape or a grand Disney-esque fairytale ballroom, aqua + lime + berry pink make a bold summer statement. Aqua is reminiscent of a tropical ocean, berry pink makes you think of ripe raspberries and fresh-picked strawberries, and lime gives that citrus freshness to round it all off! What could be better? My mouth waters just thinking about the possibilities! Picture a raspberry lemonade fountain with a fresh-cut lime sitting on the edge of all the glasses. For your girls, I'm thinking aqua dresses with colorful glass-bead necklaces. On the tables, think of big-blooms of berry pink flowers beside a jar of sea shells and sea glass gently scattered around the centerpiece. A starfish could sit on each plate as a favor to take home and a charming welcome to your esteemed guests. The possibilities are endless!

Aqua and Grey= Sophisticated Beach Bum ;) LOVE IT!

Aqua and grey are so versatile you really can't go wrong with this pair. They can look glamorous and chic for a downtown city wedding, or hip and laid back for a coastal wedding!

Coral & Navy

Color sets the tone and mood. It has the power to evoke particular emotions and feelings. It's something to be considered carefully and yet not over-thought, because you want it to genuinely be... YOU (the plural you, you and your fiance). If you want a summer, Palm Beach meets New England harbors vibe, try coral and navy!

Coral + aqua= the heat of summer with the coolness of the beach!

Coral and aqua is a match made in heaven! Coral has that sun-baked, tropical feel to it. Aqua has the essence of island waters, snorkeling, and chilling pool-side. Put them together, and you are creating a perfectly blissful event, wrapped up in summer's most rewarding qualities!

Green or deep oasis teal make wonderful companions to this sun-kissed, oceanic duo.

Save money and celebrate summer- a beach theme!

We're considering a "Taste of Florida" theme for our NH wedding. Just an idea. Since NH is our roots but we are living in Florida, it'd be nice to give our NH guests a taste of our new life in the Sunshine State! I think these centerpieces could be done so cheap and look gorgeous. Just head to the beach and grab some shells and sand!
