Creating the perfect centerpiece for your wedding

By Warren Gonzales Subscribe to RSS | December 6th 2011 | Views:

If you’re worried about your wedding reception décor, there are stress-free ways that you can create the perfect centerpiece for your wedding reception tables. From vases full of flowers, to confetti surrounding bottles with personalized wedding wine bottle labels, the possibilities are endless. The key is to find a centerpiece that is a direct expression of both you and your future spouse.

Flowers: Flowers have traditionally always been used in wedding reception centerpieces. Flowers make the atmosphere of a room romantic and can also make your reception site smell like roses…literally! The possibilities are endless, but some go-to wedding flowers are lilies and roses. Peonies are also a great option because they are a large flower and therefore you don’t need to buy a lot of them to fill a vase. If you have a certain color scheme for your wedding, you’re in luck! Most florists can make flowers any color you want, but using natural shades will keep the centerpieces looking classy.

Vases: Sure, if you’re going the flower route, you’re probably going to put them in vases. However, vases are a great centerpiece all on their own. Tall skinny vases filled with large branches can make an impressive statement, while short, squatty vases filled with crystals can emit a cool, sexy vibe. And, don’t be afraid to mix it up! Nobody says you have to have the same centerpiece for each table. Using vases of various shapes and sizes can help make the reception room more interesting. Whatever your style, there’s a vase for it! As a courtesy to your guests, make sure that your centerpiece does not block the line of sight from one side of the table to the other. Nobody likes to feel as though they’re talking to a vase full of flowers.

Candles:Candles are a great way to set the mood and make a room shine. Whether or not your reception is inside or out, if it’s at night, candles can brighten up the space. Candles come in many shapes, sizes and colors so you can really create a centerpiece that is perfect for your wedding reception.Place one large candle in the middle of the table with mini candles surrounding it, or use tiny votive candles held in glass holders to reflect the light. Floating candles are also a huge trend at the moment and can add a great amount of aesthetic appeal to the décor.

Wine: Wine bottles are a great way to spruce up a table. You can use empty bottles and fill them with stems of metallic fringe. Then sprinkle matching confetti on the table to make it feel more like a celebration. If you plan on doing a toast, create a wine bottle centerpiece with personalized wine labels. Your guests toasting with the wine will simultaneously appreciate the little extra detail. Another way to spruce up a wine bottle is with ribbon. Choose a ribbon that’s within your color scheme and wrap a beautiful bow around the neck, making sure you’re not covering the wedding wine bottle labels!

To save a little money on the décor, pick a day before the wedding where your bridal party can gather to make yourcenterpieces. Provide refreshments such as finger food, coffee and soda. Not only will your centerpieces be completed in a few short hours, but alsoit will give everyone a great excuse to gather and spend some quality time together before the big day. Happy planning!
