With more and more people lusting after Pinterest worthy weddings, it’s no surprise that couples are opting to do more DIY when it comes to table decorations. DIY wedding centrepieces can not only save you money but it also allows you to get creative and add a personal touch to your special day. You don’t have to be an expert; in fact, we have some easy DIY wedding centrepiece ideas that anyone can do!

Flower Centrepieces

Flowers can be one of the most expensive decorations at a wedding…but they don’t have to be. Creating your very own flower centrepiece can save you the added cost of hiring a florist. Whether it be a lavish arrangement of roses or pink peonies to a smaller centrepiece of dainty vases with a selection of wild flowers, you’d be surprised at how easy it is to create by yourself! If you’re a lover of all things rustic and country style, opt for some apothecary or mason jars rather than traditional vases for an arrangement of small bud flowers (see here). Using a smaller arrangement of bud flowers means you can use other props to create an arrangement. We love this idea of placing vintage books on a bed of moss with accents of gold and brass for a whimsical garden party feel. Fresh flowers are beautiful but there are also a huge variety of silk flowers available from wholesalers such as Country Baskets which could save you quite a bit of money so make sure you shop around.

Decorating with lanterns

There’s nothing more romantic than an arrangement of white lanterns with pretty little tea lights on top of pristine white tablecloths…think fairy lights and tones of white, blush and pastels for the perfect rustic wedding. A mixture of lanterns of different shapes and sizes creates more character. Think about arranging them on serving plates with a scattering of petals and fairy lights for a dreamy fairy tale theme.

Fishbowl vase centrepieces

For the eco-friendly couple, why not buy some glass fishbowl vases, fill with some soil and moss and top with a delicate tea light for the perfect nature inspired centrepiece.  We love the look of this one.

Candle centrepieces

For a show stopping candle decoration, opt for an array of candelabras. Try using serving plates in the same colour as your chosen candelabras and place a selection of petals or rhinestones to fill the empty space on the plates. Or perhaps a mixture of smaller candles in different shapes and sizes to add to the romantic ambience. Finish off with some satin ribbon around your candelabras tied off in pretty bows in your chosen wedding colour to tie everything together.

Minimalist vase centrepieces

For a clean, minimalist table centrepiece, opt for some tall squared off vases with simple white candles. This works particularly well with all white wedding themes for a clean and understated feel. See here for inspiration!

We hope these ideas provide you with some food for thought on doing it yourself – saving you some cash – and putting some more of your own personalities throughout your big day. If you’re stick stuck for ideas have a look around Pinterest, Instagram, and a few searches on Google for ideas too!
