Design Your Own Affordable Wedding Centerpieces

As you plan your wedding, you’ll discover that reception centerpieces aren’t typically provided by the caterer. It’s better to find that out now, instead of later, right? But, fear not. I’m going to show you how you can design simple, affordable and attractive centerpieces that will greatly enhance your wedding reception.

When all is said and done, flowers still make the best wedding centerpieces. They add color and life, and enliven the spirits of all those in attendance. Flowers also provide a homey feeling.

Make sure to determine the availability of the flowers you choose. You don’t want to find out that you can’t get the flowers you’ve selected. If your flowers aren’t available (or are too expensive), check to see if there is a close alternative. Make sure to shop around for different arrangement ideas.

You might want to think about adding candles, glass bowls, or floating and scented candles to your centerpieces.

And if you’re having a garden party, consider using a nature-theme for your centerpieces, such as miniature birdhouses, flower baskets, etc.

A variety of fruits can serve as beautiful and affordable centerpieces as well. With a little creativity and imagination, you can design lovely table embellishments.

If designing arrangements isn’t your forte, why not ask your friends or family to help? I guarantee there’s a budding designer among them.

The most important thing to remember is that wedding centerpieces don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. With a little ingenuity and creativity, you can make simple, inexpensive centerpieces that enhance your tables and help make your reception the stuff of dreams.
