Quick and Easy Wedding Centrepiece Ideas

Apr 19, 2008
There are so many little details that need to be taken care of during your wedding planning from finding the perfect invitations, organizing the ceremony and planning the perfect wedding reception. And every little tiny detail is just as important as the next.

When brainstorming ideas for your wedding centerpieces it's worthwhile remembering that these can add significantly to the ambience of the reception and of course the entire day. Centerpieces should be more than just some ornament on each table.

Edible wedding centerpieces can sometimes make a unique and desirable decoration for your table. Targeting the taste buds of your guests rather than just their sight and smell, may leave a delicious and lasting effect. You could for instance place candy with brightly colored wrappers on the table instead of flowers or fill a vase with chocolates covered in your wedding theme color.

When it comes to the traditional use of flowers as your wedding centerpieces you can never really go wrong. Flower arrangements in weddings in popular movies always look so elegant and glamorous. Flowers as centerpieces also allow for other decorative add-ons. You could make use of non-flowering plants, feathers and figurines for example. With flowers your only limitation is your imagination.

Another common and popular choice for wedding centerpieces is the use of candles to fill the same area that a bouquet of flowers would. From scented candles to small candles floating in a wide-mouthed vase, candles add light to give an extra dimension to color and fragrance. Candles also make traditional centerpieces at many restaurants, and since most receptions offer some sort of food, this would make it appropriate.

What you could do for wedding centerpieces is combine them with your wedding favors. Or alternatively you could use the wedding favors as your centerpiece for each table especially since you will most likely have something different for the men and something different for the women.

You can make your wedding centerpieces functional so they aren't just wasted ornaments that are thrown away later. Combining favors for example can assist with place setting for your guests. Brainstorming a little will uncover many other useful ideas.

Just remember to see the bigger picture. The centerpiece idea you go with may look amazing and ideal in a picture or on one table but make sure the one or the combination you choose works to your satisfaction in the place you have your reception in. Make sure whatever you put on the tables enhances the atmosphere of the room and is perfect for the photographs you take.
