Great Centerpieces for your Wedding

One of the must have decorations for a wedding is the centerpieces. Centerpieces tie your decorations and colors all together. They are one of the main items that can help you pull your theme together. They are also one of the main items that your guests sees and notices. I added some great ideas for centerpieces. I hope this helps for all you brides!

Boxes and containers containing floral is great for a simple and yet sophisticated wedding. You can have a simple opaque box or container of one color and add a ribbon as an accent. If you are feeling creative and want to have something more unique, you can use containers that have a design or pattern on it.

Candles are wonderful to have at a wedding. They can be very romantic and simple. If you are a bride that wants your wedding theme to be romantic, than this is it! What is great about it is you can make the centerpieces yourself.

Cherry Blossoms are beautiful and what a great place occasion to use them. Cherry blossoms are very sweet and can easily make your wedding theme look absolutely pretty! You can simply hang candles, cards, and/or crystals on the branches to add a fun touch.

Many people think that centerpieces need to be floral and traditional, but not today’s modern-day! You can pull off a wedding with some head turning details. There are some really pretty fishes that can help you with decorating your centerpieces! They can swim in a simple fishbowl or they can swim in a vase with petals, flowers, or even candles.

Metallic is not seen in too many weddings. Many brides go with a matte color for their wedding day, but if you want some glowing accents to your wedding theme, add some metallic! You can find many different colors for metallic, so why not accent your decor by using them on vases or placement cards.

When people think about a calm scene/theme, they usually think about the beach. If you want to incorporate the beach into your wedding, you can add shells and corals into your centerpieces! A simple bouquet of corals and sea floral looks fabulous while a seashell or two on a candle is beautiful.

For brides whom either do not know what to do for wedding favors or want to save money, take-away centerpieces are a great idea! A few simple vase with a flower or two in them is wonderful for your guests to take home at the end of the reception, plus you create two uses for one price!

The question is once you are engaged, what do you really want to incorporate into your wedding? The thing is that you need to know the color scheme of your wedding day in order to plan everything else. If you have no idea what color scheme your wedding is, than you may end up with a mess of different colors that just do not work together. So, here I am giving you some beautiful color combinations to help you narrow your decisions for your wedding day. These colors below are great for summer weddings, whether you like bright colors like the summer flowers or soft colors like the Caribbean.

Blue and Grey: This is a soft color combination that falls in the category of pastel. this color combination is great for if you want a simple, romantic wedding. Perfect for beach weddings!

Blue and Orange: This combination of blue and orange adds a little pop to your wedding day. The details of your wedding day will have great contrast that is not too subtle and not too much. It is a great balance between colors.

Orange and Green: The citrus color and the earth color adds a great soft feeling with some contrast. The orange is just a wonderful color for a summer wedding, especially for an outdoor wedding.

Orange and Brown: A mixture of the earth tone and the bright happy color is simple and beautiful at the same time. the orange pops while the brown keeps the orange from being too bright and overwhelming.

Yellow and Orange: Happy + Happy! This color scheme is perfect for a bride that wants everything to pop and say “I am so happy that I am even showing it with my details”. Yellow and orange is just a great summer color scheme.

Non Floral Wedding Bouquets

There are so many different ideas from wedding dresses to wedding decor that is breaking the traditional ideas for an ideal wedding. When people think of wedding centerpieces, they think of floral. They think of the fresh-cut flowers grouped together and displayed for a wedding day. Many people think the same thing when they think of having a  wedding bouquet, but it is okay to add a little something that is unique to your ideal wedding. I say think fresh and different! A wedding day is about sharing one of your happiest day of your life with other people, but it is also about showing a bit of your personality to make it yours and not just like any other wedding. I believe a wedding bouquet is one of the most important piece of a bride’s day. A bouquet is with the bride all day (from the ceremony to the reception) and it is being photographed with the bride constantly! Now, wouldn’t you say that it is important to make your own?

So what can you do to make a bouquet feel like you? I say if you are more traditional and just want the simple floral bouquet, go for it. Now if you are looking for something a little different but not too far from the traditional floral bouquet, than add some non floral pieces with the floral pieces. You can try adding pearls, crystals, feathers, etc. If you want something totally unique and more custom to what your personality is, than go for a bouquet that is completely non floral. Below are some ideas for those brides looking for inspiration and just something fun! The bouquets that seem to be in and non floral are all custom-made by hand. You can make them out of brooches, paper, fabric, ribbon, crystals, pearls, and so much more!
