Cut your flower budget in half with my ideas for inexpensive centerpieces.

Most brides get excited and carried away when they start to look at wedding reception centerpieces.

They are usually one of the most expensive items in any flower budget, often surpassing the cost of the bridal bouquet itself, especially when florists start showing you pictures of amazing displays to die for.

But while it's often a good idea to let your florist make your bridal bouquet, table centerpieces are the area you can save money on.

Cheap Wedding Centerpieces

  • Simple and stylish centerpieces can be created using a single tall glass filled with colored sand or foam and inserting a single flower in the color of your wedding theme.

    Popular with florists, especially when they place a smaller jar alongside with stems cut from flowers used in other displays.

  • You don't need expensive flowers when candles, feathers or lanterns will work too.

    The best table centerpieces just need to have style and LOOK good whatever they are made of so just use your imagination.

  • Scour wedding magazines and the internet for ideas then go shopping to source the materials for making your own table centerpieces.

  • Pop along to your local craft shop and take a look at the amazing selection of ribbons on offer. You can find something to match your wedding theme then buy cheap ribbon to wrap around your centerpiece items - fresh herbs like rosemary and lavender look great.

The same ribbon or metallic thread can be used to accessorize your bridal bouquet, your homemade wedding favors and also your wedding invitations, keeping everything tied together together in the same theme.

Even use the ribbon in your bridesmaid's hair!

More Cheap Wedding Ideas

Keep your eyes open for colored tins or mini buckets which are great holders for small flowers. Your local hardware store may be the perfect Aladdin's cave and, as they have nothing to do with weddings, are going to be CHEAP!

Use your wedding favors as table centerpieces. Great for small tables as they won't obstruct your guests view and it means eliminating the need for separate centerpieces.
