Candle Centerpiece Tips

cheap candle centerpiece tips
  • Putting some height in your centerpiece will add to the look of the whole room, just remember to think about the people sitting at the table - you don't want them not to see anyone else on the table!
  • The key to saving money on your centerpieces is to shop around for the parts that will make the whole. 
  • Candle centerpieces are popular and a great way to look expensive without costing the earth. Place your candles on a mirror tile which you can buy from any DIY store (cheaper than a centerpiece mirror). Different height pillar candles will make it look interesting and you could then scatter petals or confetti.
  • Glass bowls filled with water with floating candles is a simple but effective idea. You can then add extras to the bowl in the form of glass beads to match your colour, or shells or flowers or petals - the list is endless! I know of one couple who used pebbles from the beach where the husband proposed.

  • Wine glasses of different heights with a floating candle also look great, you could then decorate the stems with ivy or ribbon. Try and find floating candles that are a similiar size to the top of the glass otherwise the candles float to the side and look lop-sided. The best wine glasses for this type of centerpiece are going to be those big statement glasses. You will need 3 of different heights for each table to make a centerpiece that will look stunning.

Remember to avoid scented candles during the wedding breakfast as these could detract from the food and wine.

Classic candelabras would add a traditional look and you may find that the venue you are using already has these that you could use at no extra cost.

Flower Centerpiece Tips

cheap flower centerpiece tips
  • Ideas for a cheap floral centerpiece can be from your florist, think about the size and the season of the flowers. If they know what your budget is they will be able to recommend the best ideas. Plus they have the skills to create stunning displays.
  • If you decide with your florist on where to spend your budget you will avoid the stress of designing your own.
  • One way to save money is to source your own vases, I know couples that have saved themselves lots by buying their own rather than renting them through the florist. Plus they are yours after your wedding so you could gift the centerpiece to family or friends. And maybe keep a couple for yourself!
  • A simple floral idea that you can do yourself with little skill (I should know as my creative flair is not with flowers!) are to buy pots of ivy, cover the pot with material or moss and then add a few small roses, again simple but effective. 
  • Or you could have a small glass vases and fill them to capacity with your flowers, this is much easier if you have a small vase.

Alternative Centerpiece Ideas

  • A sweet centerpiece idea is to use photographs of yourselves either from now or early in your relationship. Each table could be different and you could include pictures of those at the table.
  • Or you could frame a love poem or a special phrase.
  • Also would it be worth looking at hiring wedding centerpieces . I took a look for you as there seems to be lots of companies starting up offering a wedding decoration service.
