Cheap ideas that are so Chic! The idea behind cheap wedding centerpieces is to do more with less without sacrificing anything, and in fact end up with more color, and the appearance of far more flowers and beauty throughout the wedding and reception.
Creative ideas for cheap wedding centerpieces can chop big chunks off the wedding budget by combining creative and cost-effective flower arrangements with vases that have good color and style. Wedding tables and the whole reception can be filled with stunning color for a fraction of the cost.
Wedding centerpieces; the flowers and the vases they are in, shape the look and feel of the wedding reception and any location where they are placed including reception tables, greeting tables, favor tables and displays throughout the wedding.
Good Use of Flowers
Many cheap wedding centerpieces have excellent use of flowers and space. Less expensive flowers and better use of flowers and vases can allow you to spread that beautiful flower color out.
The hydrangea is a perfect example and a gorgeous wedding flower all on its own! One or two blooms can easily fill a vase. Multiply that times four or five displays on a large or long table and you can very cheaply and easily decorate that table.
Creating cheap wedding centerpieces has a lot to do with flower budget. Budget decorating is not only about how little you spend, but how much you can do with the things you buy. You can buy a small but expensive wedding centerpiece for every table, but that centerpiece may just not fill that table with enough color and beauty to justify what you have spent.
Cheap wedding centerpieces are not only about the centerpiece itself, but about the whole table and using colors and style to make the whole table a centerpiece. Small accessory centerpieces, table cloths, favors, napkins, decorations, and place cards are outstanding and inexpensive ways to add color away from the centerpiece. All that color and style makes the whole table prettier, not just the centerpiece in the middle. The result is that centerpieces don't need to be large because the have such a great supporting cast of other stylish elements with color.
The choices of wedding flowers are of course extensive.
The Important Vase
Cheap wedding centerpieces rely heavily on interesting vases. A unique vase adds so much character and color to an arrangement that it again eliminates the need for a massive centerpiece.
Cheap wedding centerpieces also benefit from variation. Variation creates visual interest and again allows one to do more with less because the eyes dance around at the different shapes and sizes of arrangements, not the number of flowers. Visual interest tricks not only beautify the wedding, but allow you to do more with less because they create eye candy.
The Rule of Height
The rule of height for wedding centerpieces is that they should be low enough or tall and thin enough to allow the guests to make visual contact across the table. A tall and wide centerpiece will discourage conversation by blocking the guests’ view of each other.
Tall centerpieces usually need taller, bigger vases which usually cost more than shorter vases. Keeping centerpieces to a reasonable height will help keep the cost down, and improve the guests’ experience at the same time.
It is important when looking at wedding centerpiece ideas to imagine them with your colors. Even though most ideas for beautifully cheap wedding centerpieces may not be shown in your colors, many of those same flowers can be obtained in your colors or substituted with similar flowers in your colors.
Tip: Choose your perfect centerpiece by choosing an idea you like. Then, tweak the flowers, colors and vases to suit your wedding style.
The type of flowers in many of the arrangements can also be changed to suit your personal taste, style and theme. If you like the look of an arrangement but the flowers are not exact to your wedding look and feel, keep that arrangement in mind and consider tweaking the flowers to your style.
Know that changing the look of the vase will change the entire look and feel of an arrangement. If you like the flowers but not the vase, picture those flowers in a different vase that better suits your theme and style.
Wedding centerpieces, the vases and the flowers in them, express the theme, style and colors of the wedding. They are the center of attention of every reception table and they are the most noticeable fixture when you stand back and look at the room.
Centerpieces are one of the best opportunities of the reception to express the style and personality of your wedding. It is so easy to build character into your centerpieces once you have a firm grasp of what your wedding style is. Use existing ideas and build upon them to create a look and feel that is perfect for you.
