Attractive "Budget-Friendly" Centerpiece Ideas

For those brides looking to for an attractive centerpiece without breaking the bank, here are some great ideas. Depending on how adventurous you are these can also be DIY options and I'll tell you how!

The cluster of three cylinder vases (11, 9, & 7 inches) can be used for multiple centerpiece ideas. Seen here with submerged red vanda orchids, you can also submerge any color orchid spray or mini calla lily and use any number of rock or marble accents to bring in a color (in this case black) that is not found in flowers.

Another option is to float a candle on top of a cluster of floating hydrangea to add extra candle light and color to your reception tables. (Flowers by Erin charges $45 for either options.)

Eiffel Tower vases are tall, thin vases that come in solid black or white, frosted white, or clear. I love adding multiple sprays of dendrobium orchids (which come in green, white, purple, lavender, light pink, or bright pink.)

Alternatively, we can arrange roses or gerber daises with bear grass to create a tall, simple centerpiece that catches the eye of everyone that walks in the room. (Flowers by Erin charges between $35-50 for these centerpiece arrangements.)

This Bride purchased the hurricane vase and candle and I provided the rose petals to be placed inside the vase. (Flowers by Erin charges $12.50 per box of rose petals.)

Placing succulents or cymbidium orchid blooms on a bed of rocks is another perfect option for a simple arrangement.

Floating dahlias or gerber daises in a five inch square glass vase is a clean, simple centerpiece or cocktail table arrangement. (Flowers by Erin charges between $15-25 for these looks.)
