Non Floral Wedding Centerpieces

Tags: , , ,

Have you considered displaying non floral wedding centerpieces at your wedding reception?  Not every bride likes to have flowers as part of the main wedding decor, and there are many other beautiful and interesting elements you can arrange to cater for a unique, personalized or just different type of centerpiece.

Candles are always very popular and most people usually like to arrange them as part of their centerpiece. With a little imagination, candles can really spark up the tables and add warmth and a romantic mood to the general decor. Place them in clear glasses along the center of the table or place tea light colored candles in a bowl filled with water. Pillar candles are elegant and also inexpensive. Arrange different sized ones for a stylish and elegant effect.

Natural elements are also very desirable; stones, twigs, sticks and fruit can be arranged according to particular seasons. Green foliage always add freshness; but if you are looking for something a little more chic and contemporary, stones might be an element to go for as they add the organic or zen feel to the reception room. Sticks will add movement to the feel of the centerpiece and dry leaves are perfect for a wedding during the fall season.

Other elements like books, lanterns, photographs, sweets or chocolates are great if you are looking for that “unique” factor. These types of centerpieces can be really inexpensive, all you need is to be creative with the elements you are using and always adhere to the theme’s main colors and style. Bottles are also easy to arrange on the tables and handy if the guests don’t want to cue at the bar.  Having wine and champagne bottles already on the table is also a very practical idea.  Individual cakes look fantastic and make beautiful and tasty centerpieces.

Flowers can be really expensive and they are not necessary for displaying the best wedding centerpieces on your big day.

Creating Unique Fall Centerpieces For Weddings

Tags: , ,

A fall wedding color scheme can be such fun to plan because of all the wonderful colors displayed everywhere. There are countless decorating choices for creating unique fall centerpieces for weddings. In sharp contrast to the pastel weddings of days gone by, modern brides are enjoying the freedom to use any colors they like in their weddings. Very seldom do we see weddings done in pale pink, mint green, or sky blue. Brides and wedding planners are using more bright and vibrant colors, often following seasonal color schemes.

Ideas for fall wedding centerpieces are limited only by the imagination of the bride, florist, or wedding planner. Some brides have a favorite flower which they will use in arrangements throughout the wedding and reception, even though it may not be in season. Others retain the services of a florist to design fall centerpieces for weddings of fresh cut fall flowers, for more formal affairs.

For less formal weddings, perhaps outside in the early fall, or those with a more country feel, unique ideas are even more plentiful. Beautiful arrangements can be designed using dried flowers which are so popular in fall decorating, in conglomeration with fresh fall flowers. In many areas of the world beautiful flowers and fauna grow wild, free for the gathering. These can be displayed in mismatched containers for a beautiful effect. Bows made from ribbon of matching or complimentary colors may be attached to each container.

There are many extraordinary things which can serve as vases for your fall centerpieces for weddings. Antique jars and bottles make wonderful vases, when adorned with the right bows or ribbons. Small pumpkins may be hollowed out and used as centerpieces, filled with fall flowers and ribbons. These have to be done no more than one day ahead in order to stay fresh. Dried gourds are also stunning when filled with fall flora and decorated with bows.
