The wedding centerpieces are essentially the focal point of each table at the wedding reception. There are so many options available for wedding centerpieces, many of which can be home made. These centerpieces do not have to be expensive, because depending on the size of your wedding, you may need several. Below are only a few of the countless centerpiece options available.
Floral Centerpieces. When you think of the word centerpieces, many people automatically think of flowers. They are both beautiful and elegant, and depending on the blooms you choose, come in every price range. If you are going for a more elegant look, you may want to go with some type of topiary. You can get floral topiaries in a range of colors and sizes. These will be sure to draw attention. Glass vases filled with a simple bouquet of flowers also look wonderful on top of your reception tables. If you are tying to fill a longer table you may want to consider placing a single stem in a small glass vase. You can make several of these and line them down the center of the table. By paying close attention to both color and detail you can create stunning floral wedding centerpieces using simple flowers.
Candles are another option for wedding centerpieces. These also come in a variety of colors and sizes and can be arranged in several different ways. Grouping several pillar candles together in the center of the table looks very elegant. You could also use a large glass candle holder with a single large candle inside, and surround the outside of the candle holder with flowers or greenery. If you are looking for something a little more simple, small glass votive candle holders can be lined up down the center of any table with a single votive candle. These create an intimate and romantic look for your reception. There are also floating candle wedding centerpieces. Glass or metal bowls or vases can be filled with water with floating candles placed on the top. The use of metal bowls creates a reflective look, and can be stunning depending on the lighting throughout the reception.
If you have chosen to go with a more unique theme for your wedding and wish to carry that over to the reception, centerpieces are a great way to do that. For instance, if you are having a beach themed wedding, why not consider using sea shells as a part of your beach wedding centerpieces. You can group shells of different sizes in glass containers throughout your reception. If you are having a golf themed wedding, incorporate golf balls and tees into your wedding centerpieces.
Holiday themed weddings also offer several options when it comes to centerpieces. For a Christmas wedding you could use a simple clear glass bowl full of colorful ornaments in the center of each table. If you want something a little larger you could even use a small tree as the centerpiece of your table. If you are celebrating a Valentines day wedding, chocolate centerpieces would be splendid.
As you can see from the ideas listed here that options for wedding centerpieces are endless. You can make anything work as long as you use a little creativity.
