Inexpensive Wedding Centerpieces For All Seasons
No need to be worried! I have lots of inexpensive ideas to help you.
Centerpieces add a touch of beauty and glamor to the reception. They help set the tone for your reception and can be conversation starters and double as centerpieces and favors.
Today’s cost conscience brides are hip to the idea of having a magnificent centerpiece without spending a fortune. If you are making your own centerpieces, I recommend that you purchase all the items that you will need to make one arrangement and practice putting it together several months in advance of your wedding.
Doing this will give you the opportunity to determine how long it will take to assemble, the actual cost of all the needed items, whether it will be easily transportable and if it is exactly what you had in mind.
The above centerpiece was created using Blue Hydrangea's from someone's garden. If you and some of your friends have hydrangea plants consider using them to create an inexpensive table arrangement for your wedding.
Inexpensive Wedding Centerpieces for Fall Centerpiece Ideas
A fall theme wedding lends itself to using nature’s display of vibrant oranges, yellows, browns and maroons. This inexpensive display was created using one candle, leaves from a park and a few small votive candles surrounding the center candle.
Purchase a medium sized pumpkin, carve out the seeds, place a little water in the base of the pumpkin and then add fresh flowers. If you prefer dried or silk flowers, leave the water out and place dried or silk flowers in the center.
If you have lots of time and people to help you, carve out a face on a pumpkin and place a candle in the center and let the light from the candle help illuminate the room.
It’s cold outside but you want your reception room to be warm and inviting. Who doesn’t love the aroma of crisp pine trees? Go for a walk in the woods and cut pine branches, spread them out in the center of your table and scatter pine cones, acorns and artificial snow. To dress up this centerpiece you can add a few votive candles or one large candle in the center of the arrangement.
Create your own winter scene by purchasing a clear large bowl, place the bowl on top of a mirror. Fill the bowl about half way with batting and create a winter scene by putting a few skaters and other little figurines on top of the batting. You can put candles and other winter items around the bowl to create the winter scene that coordinates with your overall wedding theme.
