It’s really not surprising that they are called centerpieces. Not only are these flower arrangements wonderful decorative touch at wedding reception tables, but they are also one of the most important focal points and when done right, they have the potential to improve the dynamic space of a wedding in great measure.
If you are thinking about doing flowers at your wedding on your own, it is very important that you sit back and think about the responsibility you are taking on yourself. Doing all the wedding flower arrangements by yourself is not an easy task and it is important to know what there is to it before you start.
It may seem like it’s a fairly easy job to put together a wedding centerpiece. However, you must consider the entire picture, which includes creating designs, buying supplies and vases, taking some time to practice, buying all the flowers right before the ceremony, making sure your plants survive, putting them together and transporting all of your centerpieces to the wedding.
Before taking this step makes sure that you are ready for it and now here are some mind-blowing arrangements you can create on your own. With these arrangements you will make your wedding videos amazing.
1. Work with the Surrounding
If you are having a wedding at an exotic destination far away it is a good idea to research whether there are any local flowers which are characteristic to that area and look to use them. Not only will it be easier for you to get the actual flowers to your wedding, but they will simply naturally “fit in” with the whole surrounding and create a nice nostalgic atmosphere. Just imagine dragging flowers with you on an airplane or ordering them from far away.
2. Add Additional Elements
Your centerpieces don’t have to consist only of flowers. You can also add other elements to decorate them even further and bring out the best out of the flowers you’ve chosen. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t use flowers at all, instead use smaller or fewer flowers, but surround them with things like cotton sprigs and together they will look unique and amazing.
3. Get Two Cake Stands
Who says cake stands are for cakes only? Get an extra stand and lay out your flower arrangements on it. Nobody says that you must exclusively use vases for the wedding arrangements. Take a cake stand with multiple levels and match different flowers, with each level being unique, and this is how you can easily create something creative and memorable.
4. Use Multiple Centerpieces
If you will have long tables at your wedding (and you probably will) you should consider creating multiple centerpieces which have different heights. They will simply pull the eyes of all the guests across the whole room. Use small, rectangular vases and pair them with high, round lemon-decorated chalets to create a trendy look.
5. Candle Holders
If you have any iron candle holders that look beautiful you can make great use of them. Instead of putting candles in them you can put small flowers and create a beautiful visual effect that can be more cost effective than actually buying vases. You can also combine flowers and candles as well to create a unique decoration.
Try out some of these ideas and I guarantee that you will love them. Remember to practice a bit before the wedding and choose the magical combination that really speaks to you.
