These simple wedding centerpieces might be inexpensive, but they look anything but! It goes to show you that you don’t need to spend a few hundred dollars per arrangement to get wedding flowers that look like a million bucks. Simple wedding centerpieces will often do the trick AND save you a lot of cash.
We combed through Pinterest to find you gorgeous wedding centerpieces, many of which you could easily pull off for less than $20/each (in some cases, a lot less!). These might be simple (think a single stem or floating candles), but they are definitely refined. There’s a wedding centerpiece style in here for any wedding theme, too. Whether you’re looking for a rustic wedding theme or a formal one, chances are you can find the perfect wedding centerpiece that fits within your venue and budget.
While florals and decor can take up to 10% of your budget, there are easy ways to save on your wedding centerpieces while still delivering a high-end look. When shopping for affordable wedding centerpiece ideas, be sure to keep these tips in mind:
Bigger blooms= less money
One hydrangea stem can fill up the space of at least 5 roses. That means you’ll be able to spend less by buying less, but you’ll still be able to make a lot of impact.
Forget the flowers
Yes, I like big blooms and I cannot lie. But, I also love non-floral centerpieces as well. Books, figurines, and even picture frames can add height and interest to a table in lieu of flowers.
Fruit is such an overlooked centerpiece accessory. Try substituting one bowl of oranges for a centerpiece on a table, and you’ll save at least $100. Crazy right?
