A unique wedding table centrepiece is guaranteed to get your guests talking while they tuck into the wedding breakfast, and can work as a good conversation starter between family and friends who may not have met before too.
Deciding on what to use can be a fun process, as it gives you a great opportunity to get creative, but in case you need a bit of inspiration, here are some ideas to get you started!
So, you might think that there is nothing alternative about having flowers in the middle of your wedding tables, but the flowers that you use, the way that you choose to arrange them, or the props that you combine them with, can really make them stand out and make a statement.
For example, filling a teapot with flowers has something very ‘Mad Hatter’s tea party’ about it, and placing blooms into a birdcage will give your tables a natural and whimsical look. Draping flowers with costume jewellery or other gems can have a great impact too.
Bunches of balloons
Although there is nothing wrong with making your wedding reception look a little bit like a children’s birthday party, balloons can be used to make a sophisticated centrepiece too, if you would prefer. But, whichever way you decide to style them, they are sure to put smiles on your guests faces.
Bunches of balloons offer a great way to get your wedding colours onto your tables, which will work wonderfully to pull your theme together, and can also be a nice item for guests to take away with them at the end of the day as a favour, or memento!
Some of the best wedding table centrepieces are those which you and your partner create yourself using all of the great memories that you have together, and including items or ideas that will get your guests asking questions, and having a giggle.
Having photos as part of your centrepieces is also a lovely idea, and will make them look really personal and totally one of a kind, plus it’s your special day, so you really should be the centre of attention, and centre of the centrepieces!
You could even have a photo from a different year of your relationship on each table, which is a great way to show the progression of your time together on the one day where you really celebrate this with all of your friends and family.
Hopefully these ideas will give you the inspiration you need to get started on designing your unique table centrepiece, and making something that is truly alternative for you and your wedding guests.
