Wedding Centerpiece Ideas

When planning your wedding you will need to come up with some wedding centerpiece ideas. Centerpieces will go on each of your tables at your reception and they should aid in helping the table look beautiful. Before making any decision on what will be there you may want to decide the height of the item, as different centerpieces have different heights.

There is a noticeable difference of a centerpiece which is the main focal point, so much so that guests sitting across from one another cannot see each other through the centerpiece, and one which is nice but still allows everyone to look at each other without leaning to their right or left. Here are some nice wedding centerpiece ideas.


Candles are always a nice touch as an arrangement. Candles are especially nice as they come in many shapes, sizes, colors and scents. Picking candles as a centerpiece makes it pretty easy to match your wedding colors or theme. Another nice thing about candles is that they can be the whole centerpiece or they can be a small part of it. The candle can stand alone, certainly, or it can be wrapped in a wreath, vines, flowers or anything else you find to help beautify the centerpiece.

Besides wrapping or surrounding the candle you could also you hurricanes or decorative candle holders to enhance the look. Want the candle to stand alone but you don’t want it to appear plain? That is not a problem either – how about decorating the candle with candle jewelry, or embedding it with decorations such as crystals, seashells, colored stones or gems?

One of the newer trends emerging is to purchase nice crystal bowls as the major centerpiece and filling them with candy and treats for your guests to snack on throughout the night. By using certain kinds of candy you can still stick to a major color theme or just make the arrangement very colorful. Some ideas are m&m’s, after dinner mints, jelly beans or hard candy.
