It is true that wedding decoration is one of the things that can set the mood and atmosphere of the reception. One of the most important aspects of wedding decoration is the wedding centerpiece to be placed on the tables of the guests and the couple.
Arranging wedding centerpieces traditionally meant spending a lot on flowers and plants. But the economic crunch of today calls for a creative and cheap way of coming up with beautiful, elegant and extraordinary centerpieces that will make the wedding event extra special.
If you are getting married anytime soon and you still have not figured out what to choose for the centerpiece, here are some inexpensive but wonderful centerpiece ideas for you to consider.
Just as colorful and exquisite but not as expensive, balloons are the cheaper alternatives to flowers. Because balloons also come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, it is easy to whip up a gorgeous and stunning balloon bouquet that can add flair to the tables in the reception event. Just make sure that you attach a weight on the balloon centerpiece so that it will not float away.
Scented candles make great wedding centerpiece. They are classy, dramatic and spectacular. You have to consult a candle expert so it will be easier for you to choose what kind of candle arrangement to have in your wedding event. If you are having an Irish themed wedding, it would be a great idea to opt for candelabra. Votive candles floating on wide and clear water vase is also a wonderful choice. Also, be sure to choose scents that are appetizing such as cinnamon, vanilla, or fruity aroma.
It is easy to imagine creating centerpieces with candles and balloons but it is quite different with mirrors. How does one create a centerpiece with the use of mirrors? For one, you can place a votive candle on top of a mirror. Alternatively, you can scatter confetti or rose petals on top of a mirror. The reflection of the design elements can add beauty and depth to the centerpiece idea.
Bouquets of Bridesmaids
Since we hear messages about the importance of reusing and recycling all the time, why not do it during your wedding event? You can collect the bouquets of the bridesmaids after the church ceremonies and reuse them as centerpieces for the table. These are indeed cheap, beautiful, and wonderful.
A tall vase filled with fruits of different colors adorned with a small shrub on top or a basket of bread or muffins can be fantastic options for centerpiece. Decorate the vase, basket or any food container with ribbons or other design elements to make the centerpiece more beautiful.
Baskets with Giveaways
A beautiful wicker basket that contains giveaways such as chocolate boxes, scented candles, photo frames, or whatever kind of souvenir you are giving away can be an inexpensive but creative idea for a centerpiece.
Wedding centerpieces need not be expensive to be beautiful. With creativity and resourcefulness, you can have beautiful wedding centerpieces that you do not need to spend a fortune on.
