{GB} 5 Creative & Budget Friendly Wedding Centerpiece Ideas



When you are planning your wedding, there are many details that need to be looked after. One of them is planning how you will decorate the venue for the reception. Along with the china, linens and silverware, you need to add centerpieces to the tables where the wedding party and guests will be served. The good news is that you have a number of options that will look stylish without putting you over budget.

Floral Arrangements in Low Containers

Get creative with containers for your centerpieces. Fill short vases or any shape with flowers that complement the bride’s bouquet for an attractive arrangement that would work for a casual or semi-formal wedding.

Consider Cocktail Glasses

For a less traditional but still budget-conscious wedding centerpiece, consider using martini glasses as a container for your centerpiece. Add colored pebbles as filler and complete the arrangement by adding a few flowers. Place three glasses with twisted stems on the table for an interesting centerpiece that is sure to be a conversation starter among your guests.

Light Up Your Tables with Candles

Candles on the tables lend a romantic air to the room, and you have a number of options when it comes to holders. If you are looking for an arrangement that is positioned above the table, choose a candleholder with a long stem. Glass pedestal hurricane candle holders of various heights can be grouped together for a simple, elegant arrangement. Add candles that work with your color scheme to complete the look.

Introduce a Water Element

For a simple and elegant centerpiece for a wedding reception, float rose-shaped or plain candles in a low container filled with water. If you are interested in this option, unscented candles are best; some of the guests may have allergy issues.

Add Centerpiece Mirrors

To dress up a simple vase with flowers or candles on a wedding reception table, place them on a round centerpiece mirror. This is a simple tactic that instantly takes your centerpiece up a notch and gives it an elegant air at a low cost.

You have a number of options when it comes to containers for your wedding centerpieces. Consider a slim vase, either clear or colored, if you want to have a high arrangement on the tables at your reception.

Not all wedding reception centerpieces include flowers. Consider using shells as part of your centerpieces if you are planning a beach-themed wedding. If you are exchanging vows during the Holiday Season, consider using Christmas balls and greenery for a festive touch. To complete the look, add a flameless candle; they are available at different heights so you can choose the one that fits your wedding decor best.
