Top 3 Things to Replace Traditional Wedding Centerpieces


When you are planning the centerpieces for your wedding there are many things to consider. The wedding theme is one of the most important things you should consider, but you should also take into consideration what style the bride and groom are going with. Creative wedding centerpieces can add a lovely personal touch to the entire event, but why go with the traditional floral arrangements? Here is a list of the top 3 traditional centerpiece replacements.

1. Candle or Candelabra Centerpieces

Unfortunately due to fire hazards there are many places that will not allow candles as centerpieces now a day. Lucky for you modern advances in technology have come to your rescue, there are many realistic, battery-operated candles that look just like the real thing on the market, you can even get ones that are scented. These “fake” candles can come in a range of sizes that in most cases have the light or “flame” set low in the candle, so your guests can’t even notice the difference.

2. Centerpieces that are Environmentally Friendly

There are a few different ways you can have environmentally friendly centerpieces without going for the traditional floral arrangements. One of the ways to keep away from the flowers but still have a beautiful centerpiece is to use potted plants. These potted plants can also double as party favors for your guests and there are a number of beautiful small trees and shrubs that will add just the right look to your weddings tables, if it suits your theme consider the extremely beautiful bonsai trees which can be affordable and add that little bit of wow factor you’re looking for. Another way you may want to go if you are looking to keep everything friendly for mother earth is to have fresh fruit arrangements. This can be a very simple way to make a statement with your centerpieces, just arrange some fresh fruit in a beautiful glass fruit bowl. Some great fruit to use for this centerpiece could be apples, lemons, oranges, or limes.

3. Centerpieces That Your Guests Can Munch on

There are a number of ways you can go about creating a wonderful snack for your guests by making your centerpieces edible. Using cake for your centerpiece may be one way to go if you are finding it difficult to decide on a flavor or design for the wedding cake. A great idea if you are having trouble deciding, you can make a different one for each of the tables. By placing the cake or even cupcakes on a pedestal cake stand that is wonderfully decorated in the middle of each table. This will do double duty as a centerpiece and a dessert for your guests. This can be a delicious and attractive option that you will find is also budget friendly. If you want a fun and colorful centerpiece that can also double as a guest favor than candy may be the way to go. Arrange the candy in glass jars or bowls, if you choose to you may even want to include a colorful design on paper bags that your guests can use to collect some of the goodies after dinner as a nice little reception snack.

Attendees always appreciate little personal touches that the bride and groom include at the wedding receptions. These creative details never go unnoticed and can really make your wedding stand out to the guests. It is always a good idea that you take the time to create centerpieces that will reflect the personality of both the bride and groom, and that will give that extra wow factor to all friends and family.
