Elegant Wedding Centerpiece Ideas for the Bride on a Budget

Centerpieces are an important detail when it comes to wedding decor. After all, it’s the first thing your guests will see at the table.

And yeah! let’s face it, weddings can be expensive because there are so many details to take into consideration. Thus, there’s a lot of stress that comes into the financial side of weddings, like dresses, venues, and everything in between. Some women opt for extremely expensive centerpieces at their wedding reception. Fortunately, the frugal bride still represents the vast majority of brides.

Centerpieces can be one of the most inexpensive parts of the wedding decorating process. Just because something looks elegant doesn’t mean it came with a hefty price tag! Here are some elegant wedding centerpiece ideas for the bride on a budget.

Terrariums! The Best Centerpieces for Whimsical Weddings

Terrariums are one of the cutest and simplest displays of small plants out there. They’re the perfect size for a centerpiece and are cheap and easy to put together. The plants in the terrarium need stones, activated charcoal, potting soil, and pebbles for an earthy and neutral base, but there are ways to make your terrariums unique.

Using different colored pebbles or stones will give your centerpieces a pop of color that can fit whichever theme you have for your wedding. Putting these together can double as a cute craft for you and your bridesmaids to do together.

Multi-Purpose Succulent Centerpieces

What if you could have a centerpiece that doubled as a party favor? Introducing the succulent!

Succulents are the perfect centerpiece for the bride that doesn’t mind spending a little more money (within reason) on plants but knows her guests don’t have the amazing green thumb. These plants are not only bold and unique in shape and color, but they are incredibly easy to take care of.

Dressing up the succulent in different pots and colorful ribbons can make the perfect centerpiece for your wedding. Get creative with the design!

Faux Flower Arrangements for That Classic Detail

The more frivolous bride will read this suggestion and think that this is the tackiest idea ever known to man. However, you, the bride on a budget, will be a genius for this centerpiece idea and you will save so much money while having classy arrangements.

The key to fooling your guests with fake flowers at your wedding is purchasing silk flowers. The silk material is made to look like the real thing, but they’ll never require water nor will they wilted away. Flowers like roses, peonies, and carnations are the popular silk flowers to use as centerpieces, but any flower will do if it fits your theme.

Place the flowers in a vase of your choice, fill the vase with water, and there you have it — a centerpiece fit for a queen.
