Wedding Centerpiece Ideas

Flower Vase CenterpieceThis centerpiece is just a simple glass cylinder wrapped in scrap book paper glued with permanent adhesive. It is sitting (glued) on a candle holder. It holds a bouquet of artificial flowers. There is a ribbon tied around it, and it has jewels added to it! Super easy and inexpensive.

This simple yet lovely centerpiece was made for my daughter's wedding by the both of us. I think it is so natural looking and sweet. Just like my daughter! It really wasn't costly either compared to some of the things I saw!

Your wedding centerpieces don't have to look cheap, even if you can't spend a fortune on them.

When my daughter married, we wanted a Sentimental peace on each of the tables so I purchased vintage handkerchiefs which were white and the guest signed the handkerchiefs with their greeting and then I had a table runner made for my daughter out of all of the Vintage handkerchiefs and it is a memory that she'll always have

We're having an outdoor ceremony and reception. The guest tables each have an umbrella in the middle. I'm seeking ideas for centerpieces that would work around an umbrella. We're doing the "Linked at the Heart" theme. Thanks in advance!

I have seen heart shaped wreath forms, both grapevine and foam types in craft stores. You could take the the form and place it around the umbrella hole and,put the umbrella in carefully. It could be decorated with real or artificial flowers in your colors.


There is a website, that shows how to make these wreaths. I f you want to get some ideas, google "heart shaped wreath forms".

Start at the top or bottom (preferably while the pole is not yet set in the center of the table, if possible) with pretty ribbon on opposite sides of the pole. Make a spiral to the top (or bottom) with each one. Each place the ribbons cross, hot glue a hearts made of paper, lace, plastic, buttons, etc. You can find heart confetti at Hallmark or just about any Party Store or Dollar Tree and scatter it on the tables. If your wedding is in a windy place, you may want to cover each table with a clear plastic protector and secure it underneath.

I'm getting married in April 07 and the wedding is inside. I need centerpiece recommendations for a sit down dinner (25 tables). Very limited budget.
