Whether you’re planning a destination wedding in an exotic locale or a local celebration, fabulous centerpieces will impress your guests and get everyone in the party mood. If you’re planning a destination wedding, however, creating eye-catching centerpieces easily may seem like a daunting task. However, there are many options when it comes to making fantastic centerpieces that will impress your guests, and it won’t require you to take three more suitcases with you! Consider our ideas as you create your own stylish centerpieces.
Consider adding thematic elements
If your celebration is going to have a bold theme, consider playing off of it and making your centerpieces complement it. Having a beach-themed party? Make your centerpieces fun and beach inspired by incorporating starfish, shells, sand and light colors. Use natural details from your surroundings and pretty flowers, like hydrangeas, to really make your centerpieces special.
Although many couples have traditional flower centerpieces, nowadays, they’re often predictable. Freshen up the traditional option with unique holders, like mason jars or interesting vases, or simply cover the holder with patterned or bright colored paper.
What could be more romantic at an evening reception than candles, lanterns and twinkle lights? If you really want to play up your venue and the romantic atmosphere, use elegant lighting on your tables. Lanterns are romantic centerpiece items. Use lanterns in different sizes on the tables to create interest and use floral arrangements to dress up the table.
If you’re looking for a different way to light up your centerpieces, use candles – whether you choose to have floating candles, delicate votives or pillar candles, there are so many options for your wedding. Ask your resort ahead of time if they have candles on hand, and if not, try packing various options before making your decision.
