Cheap Wedding Centerpiece Ideas

Mixed Fruit and flower Centerpieces -- A popular centerpiece trend is  a vase with lemons and limes. You don’t need as many flowers, which reduces the costs. Try a carved fruit wedding centerpiece
For vases, look for cheap objects around the house or from thift stores, like cans, water picthers, and teapots. Ask firends and family or things they no longer use. 
Favor Basket centerpiece  -- Place a single large basket or several small baskets in the center of each table. Tie a ribbon or bow around each basket. Fill with candy (or the guests’ favors). Or with this idea , a live plant is surrounded by homemade jam.
Bridesmaid bouquets centerpiece   
Place bridesmaid bouquets on the tables after the ceremony. Centerpiece with  Drinking Glasses Instead of Vases -- Ikea sells a package of 6 large beer glasses for $6.99.  They also sell lots of vases and candle holders for very low prices.

You can buy an inexpensive wine bottle centerpieces from or make you own. Another idea is to use wine glasses as a decoration.  You can group wine glasses on tables and fill with candy, beads, flowers, or candles.

It is very easy to create an Asian Centerpiece or Tropical  Centerpiece for just a little bit of money. An Asian style centerpiece lends itself to being inexpensive because it does not involve overpowerng elements that are seen in very elaborate floral displays. As you can see, you can make a lovely centerpiece with just a few river rocks and a couple of blooms. You can also create a stunning centerpiece with a single orhid.  You can buy table-sized orchid plants from Costco or home depot for under $20.Since the contanters are usualy ugly, you can wrap them with silk fabric or place the plant into a better pot. You can even great nice pots from the 99 cent store.  To really pull it together, you can place the centerpiece on top of a simple bamboo placemat. You can get these placemats at home stores or online at Oriental Trading or Save-on Crafts. You could by other tropical plants from a nursery, such as a Bird of Paradise Plant
