1. Use fruit in your centerpieces
I love fruit in centerpieces. Nature has given us such great and vibrant colors that it would be hard to pass up the opportunity to use them. Use them alone in a unique vessel adorned with ribbon. You can also choose to use with flowers or candles. The vessels that you choose will determine how formal or informal your centerpiece will be. The options are limitless.
My number one fruit choice for centerpieces are lemons, I love the vibrancy that lemons bring to the table.
2. Use Candles
Nothing says romantic like candles and weddings, and romance go hand in hand. Candles come in a variety of colors and shapes which you can choose to enhance your centerpiece. You can use candles alone, with rocks, beads or flowers. It all depends on your particular vision for your event.
I would only recommend that you shy away from scented candles. Some individuals, like myself, suffer from sensitivity to certain scents. It can cause headaches and or nausea, you definitely want your guest to enjoy your wedding.
It may only be one guest at that particular table, but it is still one too much.
If you are going to do your own centerpieces, try practicing to create your centerpiece ideas before your wedding, to make sure that you are happy with it and to test how long your particular flowers will last. Also, to know the ease of creating your centerpieces.
