#WeddingWednesday: Non-Floral Centerpieces

#WeddingWednesday: Non-Floral Centerpieces

Are you not interested in traditional floral centerpieces for your wedding?  If you just want something that will stand out from the rest at your wedding, we have some great ideas for you.

Have a bookshelf full of novels and a love for anything literature?  We have the perfect centerpiece for you!  Stack two to three books on top of each other as a stand for a love quote from one of your favorite books.  This makes your centerpiece interactive as your guests will love to read all of the quotes you came up with.  It will also be inexpensive because, even if you don’t have a large enough stack of books lying around, you can always borrow from a friend or even the library!  For the quote you could buy several frames from Kohl’s, Michaels, Walmart, etc. and slip in a white piece of paper with the printed quote on it.  Everyone may think you spent a large amount but in reality you saved a large sum on the centerpiece as a whole! Add some candles to enhance the classical, romantic feel.

For a more simplistic, romantic feel candles of three different sizes in a glass bowl of rocks and petals may be the perfect centerpiece for you.  Having petals instead of actual flowers will give you a touch of floral without the tall or bulky flowers that typically sit in the center.

Are you looking for more of a rustic feel at your wedding?  Wood slabs are a popular part of centerpieces in rustic weddings.  Take it a step further by adding a small tree stump with you and your future spouse’s initials engraved in it. For an elegant touch add a tall vase with a candle votive inside with either burlap or brown string wrapped around it.

Make your centerpiece edible by having a fruit centerpiece.   You can match the fruit to your wedding colors and at the end of the night have each of your guests take a piece or two of fruit home.  Make your centerpiece even more appealing by adding fake leaves and beads.

Candleabras can add a touch of classic elegance to your day.  It is not necessary to have any other elements when you have a candleabra.  This centerpiece is perfect on its own and does not need any enhancements to help get your theme across.

Birdcages with candles inside can add a romantic flair to your centerpieces.  Surround the birdcage with petals to add a pop of color.

Having a wedding by the beach or just love the feel of the sun and the sand in summertime?  Put a candle in a vase filled with sand and shells.  Surround the vase with starfish and shells to complete your summer centerpiece.  Add light blue table cloths or napkins to complete the ocean feel.
