Budget-friendly and Simple Wedding Centerpieces Made with Fresh Flowers
Your wedding table centerpieces need to ooze style; hey, even the job description states that they need to be the ‘center’ of attention!
You’re thinking style, you’re thinking elegance, you’re thinking flowers, candles, vases… and now you’re probably thinking, big massive wads of cash down the drain. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way!
Here’s where the magic secret comes in: table centerpieces don’t have to be expensive to look fabulous. They just need to be beautiful. And that beauty could come from simple, dramatic flowers. From rustic planters or jars. From DIY bunches hand-wrapped in ribbon.
In fact, there are so many ways to save money on your table centerpieces, it’s hard to understand why anyone would splurge here at all! With a few willing helpers (read: coerced family members and friends) you can make all your centerpieces at home and save SO MUCH! All the more to spend on your honeymoon shopping, right?!
I’m so SO excited about this page. I’ve spent that past few hours pulling together the most beautiful and simple centerpieces from the real weddings on the blog. I think every single one of them is special in its own way.
I can’t wait to see how these inspire the decorations for your big day. Make sure you come on back to tell me!
A twine-wrapped vase with a circlet of vines makes this rustic arrangement a real thing of beauty. Great ring symbolism too!
Sweet and simple and oh-so-adorable – nothing can be more perfect for a spring wedding than a bunch of pure white blooms in an unadorned glass jar.
Single spray of orchids + simple glass bowl = can’t-fail combination. Sooo elegant and pretty, and one of the easiest designs to create.
You just can’t help but fall in love with the ever-cheerful Gerbera daisy! In this centerpiece, the pop of color makes the simplicity of the design work.
Ethereal pale roses are perfect for a pastel palette… and pretty enough to add a touch of elegance even in the simplest of arrangements.
Here’s a great floral design tip: a few oversized blooms in a classic glass vase pack more dramatic punch than an armful of smaller flowers.
The humble flowerpot is a great container for your centerpiece, and it can even be painted, tinted or distressed for a great custom finish.
A tinted narrow-necked jar looks simply stunning with a single floral spray wedged into tiny pebbles. Use contrasting colors to create a look of eclectic charm.
The combination of tall cylindrical jars with floating candles and shorter flower arrangements creates interesting contrast and draws the eye.
You don’t need pricey blossoms to make an impact. Sticking to a single shade like ivory gives any arrangement a touch of class.
Never underestimate the charm of a just-picked bunch of wildflowers in a mason jar! They have an easy breezy beauty that works great for rustic backyard bashes.
Dahlias in a precious shade of butter yellow need no fuss and no further adornment. It’s just like putting a big bowl of sunshine on your table – so cheerful!
Sometimes it’s the little details that make a simple arrangement look classy – a metallic shimmer on the vase, a whisper of satin at the lip of the jar…
Those gorgeous daisies again! Simply fill a glass bowl with water, snip flower heads, and float – it’s as easy as that! Easy on the eye AND the pocket.
Sunflowers have a kind of brash beauty, but you can give them a touch of elegance by interspersing them with tealights and floating candles.
For a fall or winter wedding, opt for deep, dramatic colors – they look rich and luxurious even if they’re not expensive. And they really make a statement on your table.
A metallic pitcher is the perfect foil for these fresh daisies and lush greenery. This centerpiece just bursts with vintage-y charm!
Using swathes of tulle adds floaty drama to a simple floral bunch, and don’t you just love the effect of this rustic tinted mason jar?
Adding a picture, painting or photo to your centerpiece is a great way to incorporate an image that is meaningful to you both in the décor.
Ever consider creating your own vases? A painted bottle really looks the country chic part and is easy to color at home. A real budget solution!
Using an assortment of flowers means you can mix expensive blooms with more budget-friendly ones for a million dollar look – and no one’s the wiser.
You might think a wooden planter isn’t ‘glamorous’ enough for a wedding, but these are perfect for DIYers as they can be prepared in advance.
Roses always signify romance, but if you pile ‘em high, you’ll end up spending a packet. Combine with baby’s breath and other fillers to keep costs down.
For a fall wedding, how about using non-traditional elements like stalks of wheat and succulents combined with flowers to create unique centerpieces?
