One thing that many brides and grooms seem to overlook is what they are doing for wedding reception centerpieces. If you have not already decided on your wedding reception centerpieces, here are some ideas for what you can use.
Make Wedding Reception Centerpiece Yourself
You might feel overwhelmed with the amount of things you have to do for the wedding. If you want something to help de-stress you and give you a few minutes of peace, think about making your own wedding reception centerpieces. One homemade idea is to use baked goods. Everyone likes baked goods, and you cannot go wrong in using them! You could put a plate of delicious homemade cookies in the center of the table. Using icing, pipe you and your fiancé’s names and the wedding date. Another great baked good idea is to put a cake, pie, or other delicious desert in the middle of the table. Put a dot or other mark on the bottom of a chair or a place mat. The one who has that dot on their seat or placemat becomes the temporary owner and can keep the centerpiece! You guests will not forget this wedding reception centerpiece!
On A Budget
Using baked goods is a great wedding reception centerpieces idea if you are on a budget. However, it can get expensive depending on what you are making. Ask for help from family and friends if you need it. If you still need to work with a tight budget, try asking the planner for your banquet hall what type of centerpieces they usually use. Chances are they have their own standard wedding reception centerpieces that you could use free of charge or for very cheap. You may, however, have to add your own bit to the centerpiece. For example, if they have anything to do with candles, you will probably need to purchase your own candles to put in them. You can also use a wedding floral centerpiece and many people consider it a great idea. Bring over some flowers from the wedding and place them in the tables. Your wedding reception hall will look beautiful and no one will have ever known that the flowers were recycled!
