Simple Wedding Centerpieces For The Do It Yourself Wedding Couple
All the wedding preparations are slowly getting to you. One minute you’re so tired you can barely open your eyes and the next minute, you’ll all hyper due to the stress and adrenaline combined. So what should you do? You definitely can’t keep this up and risk looking like a zombie on the day of your wedding. Learn to slow things down a bit. Sure, the wedding is fast approaching but you don’t want to be sick on the day that you have to walk down the aisle.
Smashing red floral centerpiece
A red floral centerpiece would certainly look amazing on top of a crisp white table cloth. Achieve the look by clustering together dahlias, ranunculus, zinnias, nerines, scabiosa, and roses. Insert some maiden-hair fern to complete the look. It would be better to arrange them in a loose, garden style. And the container is also important. Pick something that would complement the overall theme of the wedding. For a classic wedding, get a tall clear vase. For one that’s going to be held outdoors, a galvanized sprinkler would do the trick.
Spice and herb centerpiece
This particular table centerpiece is not only for the eyes but also for the nose. You’ll be able to invigorate the table arrangement not only with the visual appeal of this herb centerpiece but also with its enticing fragrance. It would be nice to incorporate greenery like oregano, basil, tarragon and mint. Have these herbs planted in sleek pots and you’ll be able to achieve an organic look that’s also creative and stylish.
Tea cup centerpiece
If you’re going to use this centerpiece, you’ll love the idea that you won’t have to worry anymore about wilted flowers. Beautiful china such as tea cups would not fade even after the last dance. So how do you create this centerpiece? First, collect tea cups and saucers from people you know or buy online or from flea markets. Stack them up high. Secure the stacked tea cups using museum wax. On each of the cup, put a votive candle. Add a single rose or any other flower bloom and you have yourself a unique and dashing table centerpiece.
Having a beach wedding? Then this centerpiece is perfect for you. Get a large wide clear tray. Pour a layer of sand on the bottom of the container. Add sculptural shells, coral pieces, conch and murex shells, marlin spike shells, cattleya orchids and pillar candles until you’ve achieved a nice-looking seascape centerpiece. Now even if you’re not having a wedding by the beach but you still want a tropical vibe in the event, you can still make use of this centerpiece to dress up the guests’ tables.
Ripe fruit centerpiece
It’s not just the color that you’ll adore about this centerpiece but also its symbolism of abundance and fertility. Get a big bowl and fill it up with colorful fruits like apples, grapes, pears, oranges, and so on. Add in some fresh flower blooms. This is probably the best way to go au natural in your wedding décor.
