There are about a million details to worry about when planning a wedding. Centerpieces are all too often overlooked, and then thrown together haphazardly at the last minute. Have you ever seen a truly horrendous centerpiece? How about one that was breathtakingly beautiful? Are you tired of the same old rounded flower centerpiece? What is the type YOU want?
There are many options for centerpieces. Plan ahead so you don’t have that hideous centerpiece of your wedding nightmares. Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
A large glass bowl, filled with water and floating candles, in your wedding colors. Also consider putting some glass beads on the bottom of the bowl in one or more of your wedding colors.
Is your wedding a bit more toned down and minimal? Perhaps a large candle plate with a few pillar candles in different heights, and some polished rocks around the base.
For the romantic types, have some favorite poetry printed, in a romantic script of calligraphy, and put it in a beautiful frame surrounded with your wedding flowers.
If you would like the truly unique, consider round glass fishbowls, with rocks on the bottom, matching your wedding colors, and a beta fish.
Consider having several photos, or a collage of pictures of the bride and groom through the years printed. Frame and place on tables, and surround with wide ribbon or flowers.
Go to a local craft or home décor store, and you might find figurines that match your theme that you can use as your centerpieces. You can place them on a pedestal, or a piece of mirrored glass.
