Are you in the midst of planning a wedding? And more importantly, are you planning the big day on a budget? If so, you are no doubt looking for the best ways to decorate the big day for less. This might seem like a large task at first, but the truth is there are plenty of ways to dress up your reception without going broke. To get started, take a look below at 7 simple and inexpensive wedding centerpiece ideas, perfect for adding some pizzazz to your party!
- The Floating Orchid. Buy tall, cylinder style vases from your local craft store. Drop some colored stones (Dollar Tree) in the bottom of each. Add a faux orchid (around $4 a stem at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s) and you are all set. Arranged in groups of three these make for a gorgeous display.
- The Sparkling Monogram. Purchase cardboard letters from your local craft store (about $4 each) that represent the first initial of the last name. Spray paint it in either a faux gold or silver finish. Place the letter at the center of each table along with some inexpensive tea lights.
- The Memories Frame. Make 5×7 black and white prints of your favorite memories together. This can include pictures you took on dates, at parties, etc. Frame them in an inexpensive frame and display one at the center of each table. Add some inexpensive tea lights for extra sparkle.
- The Rustic Round Up. Enjoying a fall wedding? Then gather some inexpensive gourds and pumpkins at the center of your table. You can scatter fall leaves (real or silk) around the centerpiece for an extra layer of detail and décor. A gold glitter dusting over it all makes for the perfect touch.
- The Sweet Treat. Are you serving sweets of any kind at your wedding? Why not tie them into the centerpiece? Place your candy bowls, cupcake trees, or other sweet treats in the center of the table. Not only will they be yummy later, but they make great décor during the dinner.
- Vintage Glam. Buy vintage silver pieces from thrift stores along with crystal candlesticks and create a vintage inspired centerpiece. Fill the pieces with candles, flowers, glass stones, or other fillers. When arranged in a cluster they will add some glam vintage appeal.
- Go Green. Plants will always cost you less than cut flowers. For a spring or garden wedding why not use large potted plants for the centerpiece? You can choose from gorgeous greens as well as herbs to make the space not only look great, but smell great too. Add a bit of ribbon around the pots as well as some candles and you are ready to roll. See how many ways there are to decorate your tables for less? These inexpensive centerpiece ideas are easy even for the newest of crafters, and they are all easy on the budget as well. Consider these options, give them your own spin even, and see what magic you can create!
