Unique Wedding Centrepiece Ideas

One of the most exciting things about planning your wedding is choosing the fun details like colour schemes, decorations, flowers and centrepieces. Once you’ve narrowed down your colours, you can start to add elements that really reflect your tastes and who you and your groom are as a couple.

This blog post will focus on choosing unique centrepieces to help your wedding stand out and make an impact that will leave your guests impressed. From the dramatic to understated, a centrepiece can help tie together the overall aesthetic of your wedding reception. Here are some unique ideas and starting points for choosing your wedding centrepieces!

High, clear vessels for flowers. This type of centerpiece makes for a dramatic, elegant statement that’s also practical enough that it won’t prevent any dinnertime conversations from occurring.

Planted succulents. An easy and contemporary (succulents and terrariums seem to be everywhere these days!) DIY centrepiece, you’ll be able to choose your favourite plants to be featured on tables. One of the benefits of this type of centrepiece is that they can be prepared weeks in advance, giving you less to worry about on your big day.

Antique pieces. For a vintage-inspired aesthetic, consider using intricate clocks or other vintage pieces to create a unique centrepiece that is visually engaging. We also love the idea of using old books to create a very unique display – perfect if you and your groom are literary lovers!

Sparkling elements. Adding strands of crystal beads or crystals of different shapes and sizes from branches of tall centrepieces will give them a sparkling appeal. This can be done on flower branches for a luxe, feminine effect or on regular branches for a rustic chic look.

Flowers arranged in loose bouquets. You may remember our blog post about flower trends for 2016 and that one of the biggest trends is a wide, loose bouquet with a freshly-picked aesthetic. If you like the idea of floral centrepieces, consider a modern twist like the version below.

Flowers accentuated by candlelight. If you like the look of tall centrepieces and want to add a visual twist, consider using flower vases that can accommodate tea light candles. The surrounding glow on your flowers will create an ambient effect that is one-of-a-kind.
