So I'm having sunflowers,eucalyptus, babies breath and a bit of lavender in my bouquets. I'm using quart Mason jars with fairy lights and birch wood slabs but so undecided what to do with florals for centre piece I love sunflowers but don't wanna overkill and it looks tacky in abundance. I would really love some input.

    I was at a wedding this past summer with sunflowers as the main flower in the bouquets and throughout the reception and it was beautiful! If you are worried about an over abundance of sunflowers in the centre pieces, you could try substituting for a smaller yellow flower to go along with the other flowers. Smaller flowers could be more evenly distributed/intertwined throughout with lavender, baby鈥檚 breath, and eucalyptus so that it wouldn鈥檛 stand out as much. Just a thought 馃槉 I鈥檓 sure no matter what your day will be beautiful!

    Personally i love sunflowers the smaller side ones with greenery just in a vase i think it looks like happiness in a cup. but i understand overkill if it were at every table maybe every other table have flowers and then have the cute little sprigs of greenery and lavender on the other tables. like Alyx mentioned above.

    Ok!! I get you now 馃槉 I have a love hate relationship when it comes to florals, it's one of those things where I'm about ready to slap some eucalyptus garland around my wood crates and lanterns and stick some eucalyptus on the table 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ

    No I don鈥檛 think it鈥檚 tacky at all with lavender!! I think the mix of flowers you have is beautiful! I saying the way you balance all the florals in the mason jars and bouquets, creates a less tacky arrangement! Like balancing the sunflowers with eucalyptus and the rest of your florals will look really pretty! But again that鈥檚 just my opinion, you have to love it!!
    Your florist should be able to create what you love if you send her some inspiration pictures she can get an idea of what you like 馃槉
    Wildflower look would go beautiful with your theme!!

    Tacky with lavender? don't worry I ain't offended I love getting ideas and I just like simple but elegant. I'm getting artificial and a florist from another province. It's a rustic wedding them and I was kinda going the wildflower look somewhat cuz I'm getting married on a farm

    I guess it depends on what you find tacky to the next person! Haha are you doing your own florals ? Fresh or artificial?



    I know some of these photos don鈥檛 have your flower in them but you can put in place what you are using. These to me are done in a non tacky way, but you may think otherwise haha! I think it鈥檚 about keeping a balance and adding greenery to make it less tacky ? So even though your florals consist of sunflowers , your whole bouquets isn鈥檛 20 sunflowers it can just be 4 of them with lots of greenery like eucalyptus and a touch of lavender and baby鈥檚 breath to make the sunflowers pop!

    Check with a florist and see if they do artificial. That's the route we went. Ours look real and feel real as well

    IMO, I think a single sunflower would look super cute on the tables with the other things you mentioned. Smiley smile

    Maybe that's what I should do is just go like white hydrangeas and eucalyptus stems. I just love simple and not over filled with color as I say I love sunflowers but yikes the amount of color they give off is just way to much if u use to many.

    I've been seeing people use different types of succulents as centerpieces, or just mason jars with Lavender and babies breaths, I think it's a great idea to incorporate your bouquet design into your center pieces. Stay away from Pinterest that will confuse you more I find.
