How to Make Budget Wedding Centerpieces


If you are planning your wedding on a budget, making your own decorations is a good way to cut costs. Making your own centerpieces for your reception tables is easy and inexpensive. Follow these simple steps to create elegant, yet budget conscious centerpieces.

  • Buy clear glass bowls in a variety of shapes and sizes from the dollar store. Also purchase tealight candles in bulk. Place one bowl on the center of each table and fill it with water. Float three tealights in the water.

  • Purchase flowers from the grocery store instead of from a florist. Pick low cost flowers such as carnations.

  • Cut the stems off the carnations and float the flowers in the bowl with the tealights.

  • Get confetti or silk flower petals from your local craft store. Sprinkle the confetti or petals on each table to add a little color and drama to the tables.

  • Place a disposable camera on each table with a note for your guests to take pictures at the reception, then leave the camera. This way you will get a lot of candid photos from your wedding reception, but eliminate the cost of a professional photographer.

  • Buy inexpensive potted plants from your local gardening shop to use as another option for budget centerpieces. Tie a ribbon around each of the pots, and place one in the middle of each table. You can take the plants home or give them to guests.

  • Use a big bowl of fruit as a centerpiece. Buy whatever fruit is on special at your local grocer. Guests can eat the fruit during the reception.

  • Purchase inexpensive picture frames from a discount or drug store. Print pictures of the bride and groom and put one in each frame. Place a framed picture in the middle of each table with a note of thanks to the guests from the bride and groom.
