Find the cheap wedding ideas you are looking for:

How about combining your favors with your centerpieces?

favors for centerpieces

You could have a pyramid of favor boxes in your wedding colors in the center of the table. Or my personal favorite, a small branch of a tree, sprayed either silver or white (you could add glitter for sparkles) then secure it in a pot with either florist oasis, clay, even cement - you don't want it to move. Then decorate the pot and tie your favors to the branches. If you have a beach theme you could have a child's toy boat in the middle laden with favors.

Edible centerpieces

Yum, bowls of your favorite sweets or a silver tray with tapas, at Easter you could have a glass bowl filled with chocolate eggs, at Christmas time fill the bowl with tree candy or mini chocolate santas.

Think about your wedding colors could you enhance these by putting a clear glass vase as a centerpiece and fill with wrapped sweets.

Fun Centerpieces

Bring back your childhood with easy to play games for each table; Lego, pick up sticks, trump cards, jenga, make sure the games can be played quickly and involve the whole table. This is also a great ice breaker. With the building bricks you could set each table a challenge! Make a wedding cake out of bricks. It's all about having fun.

Try Amazon for traditional table top games, they have lots you haven't seen in a while and some are cheap - marbles, trumps, pick up sticks.

You could also use...

  • Books that are themed to your wedding or are both of your favorite authors. You can also name the table after an author or a book.
  • Photo centerpieces of both of you or family members on their wedding day. This is an extra special way to include couples that are no longer with you to celebrate.
