One area many couples may cut back on costs are by using simple wedding centerpieces that still create a bold statement. Many brides assume the table décor must be large to get that desired look for their reception but with those large centerpiece, comes a large price tag. Flowers are one of the most expensive decoration to use, a large arrangement in a tall vase, costs can vary upward, well into the hundreds.  Quite a few brides assume that simple means less elegant, which is far from the case! With a little creativity, you can have beautiful table centerpieces that are elegant, and, will not throw your budget over the top.


Candles are one of the least expensive centerpiece designs you can incorporate into your wedding decoration. Whether you use floating, pillar or even tealights, once the candles are arranged on the table and the lights are dimmed, candles will create a glimmering glow of ambience throughout the reception.

There are so many options you can create when using any style or type of candle. Use vases with height variations so everything don’t look just streamline. Fill them with water for floating candles, sand, marbles, stones and suspend real or artificial flowers.  Blend using short pillars, tealights or a variety of designed holders adding into the décor.
