It doesn't get easier (or more stunning) than this. Set your favorite flowers adrift alongside floating candles for a gorgeous but understated wedding centerpiece. This project can be sized for any budget, with small dessert bowls making as sweet a statement as large serving bowls.
You don't need tropical leaves to steal this pretty centerpiece idea. Cut large leaves (think hostas, ferns, or large tree leaves) and tie them to your vases with jute string. Bonus: This is a great way to disguise the not-so-cute vases you might have on hand.

Modern and fresh, this grassy centerpiece can work at almost any wedding. Change up the container for a more modern or rustic look.
Bring love songs to a wedding reception by way of centerpieces. Cut sheet music to wrap around a candle, and hold it in place with ribbon and decorative upholstery tacks.

The conversation will flow as wedding guests admire photos of the bride and groom tucked inside a clear vase or candleholder.
This simple centerpiece is perfect for the laid-back bride. Start with your wedding colors and find an in-season fruit that fits the theme. (In-season fruit will be cheapest.) Then, use bowls in a contrasting shade, like we did with the yellow lemons and blue bowl here.
