Centerpieces: Cheap Wedding Table Decorations

Cheap Wedding Table Decorations
Use wedding balloons and metallic wedding confetti for cheap wedding table decorations


Wedding table decorations don't have to be made out of fresh flowers which can cost a fortune.

Many extravagant centerpieces cost upwards of $300 each and while they may look amazing, how many people actually remember them after the big day?

Here are some alternative ideas for table decorations suitable for weddings, parties and a host of other special events.

Wedding Balloons

Think balloons are just for kids parties? They can look really stylish and balloon table centerpieces start from around $25 so they're also really affordable.

They can also be used as part of a total wedding theme.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Match colors to the overall wedding theme.

  • Personalize each balloon with names of the bride and groom.

  • Walk down the aisle or say your vows under a balloon arch.

  • Feeling creative? Order personalized balloons online and make your own table decorations using metallic ribbon from a craft store to tie them all together.

Balloons can also be used for silly party games and can create a wonderfull send off for the bride and groom - just release a huge bunch of balloons into the air as they leave.

Metallic Wedding Table Confetti

On a very tight wedding budget? Do what I did and choose shiny sparkly metallic confetti to throw over tables.

Metallic wedding table confetti is available in packs or in bulk and can decorate tables for under $2 per pack - and a pack goes a long way :)

Choose iridescent metallic colors that sparkle and shine and look fabulous when reflected off pure white table cloths. All you need to do is put a single tea-light in a small glass in the center of each table and scatter the confetti all around.

If you have any left over, scatter it over the floor or give it to guests to throw over the bride and groom - metallic confetti won't stain and it's available in a huge range of shapes and sizes - hearts, stars, bride and groom etc.

You may only need one decoration to wow your guests - an icesculpture!
