Pulling Off Elegant Wedding Centerpieces for Your Upcoming Wedding

When attempting to pull off the most memorable wedding, I highly recommend sticking with elegant wedding centerpieces! These centerpieces have a sparkle about them, which will radiate throughout the venue and force your guests to take notice. It is vital to be prepared for a bit of work, because pulling off an elaborate and elegant centerpiece is going to take quite a bit of work. Within this article, you will find helpful guidance that I believe will help you make the right selection for your upcoming wedding!

Set a Formality Level

Before you move any further, I highly recommend setting a formality level! Remember that it is vital to have a formality level set in place, in order to determine how to structure your centerpiece. Classic weddings will require total formality, while more modern weddings can stray from the path. Of course, the final decision will come down to your own personal preferences. If you want formality, it can be yours, but if you do not, you can ignore it. Still, selecting this will help you make the right centerpiece choice for your wedding.

A Simple Touch of Elegance

Some individuals don’t want to spend a great deal of time or energy on their centerpieces. If this is something that rings true with you, it is time to contemplate a simple, but elegant, centerpiece. There are many that fit this specific model and you won’t have to spend a great deal to pull them off. First and foremost, you will want to consider the simple tea light candle holders. Remember that simple doesn’t mean unattractive. So, what exactly will you need?

Well, you won’t need a whole bunch. First and foremost, you’ll want to get your hands on some adorable candle holders. These don’t have to be anything expensive or massively huge. Instead, a few small candle holders will work. Make sure that they’re circular and clear. As long as these characteristics are consistent, the rest won’t matter as much.

After you’ve gotten these items, you will need to purchase a few candles. Spending lavishly here isn’t necessary. It is possible to purchase these items in bulk for very little. Be sure that you have enough for each of your candle holders. Although you could stop here and have a finished centerpiece, you will want to contemplate taking it a tiny bit further. You can add several different items to the arrangement, including water beads or submersible flowers. Submersible LED lights will work, as well, if you’ve selected taller candle holders.

With the items you’ve selected, you will want to put everything together quickly, before you’ve finished. Setting everything on a reflective platter or mirror can enhance the overall display, but it isn’t necessary. Either way, this adorable little combination will look beautiful and elegant for your wedding!

The Rose Petal Centerpiece

Although there is an enormous amount of items that could fit into your elegant wedding centerpieces, you will definitely want to consider using flowers. I highly recommend using roses, but you can pick and choose accordingly. Make sure that you consider using flower petals that work well with your color scheme. Once you’ve gotten the petals you like, it is time to move onto other aspects of the arrangement.

You could create a simple display, by using the petals and a few small votive candle holders, but you’re after something more elegant. Therefore, you will want to find some taller platforms. Some nice wire or metal candle holders will work, as long as they rise off of the ground and have a sizable bowl at the top. Once you’ve gotten these, you will want to throw the rose petals into the top bowl and add a tea light candle to the center. At the base, you can add votive candle holders and rose petals too. By doing this, you will have an elegant centerpiece that produces a romantic appearance.

Playing With Candles

There are many different centerpieces that work wonders, but I absolutely love those that use candles. One of the most excellent ways to pull this off is through experimentation. Purchase candles of all different sizes and play around with them at your home, until you find something that you like! For me, I like to purchase votive candles and a much bigger vase for the center. Once you’ve gotten 4 votive candle holders and an exceptionally bigger vase for the center, you will want to get some nice flower petals.

Start with your base, which should be a mirror. Next, place the four votive candles in a square around the center. Finally, the center vase should be added. This will work awesomely for a variety of different wedding themes. As long as you choose the right petals, you can pull it off with any color scheme too! Overall this will create a very beautiful and reflective centerpiece, once the candles have been lit.

Upside Down Champagne Glasses

If you want an elegant centerpiece, but don’t want to spend a great deal of money, you’ll want to consider looking in your kitchen cabinets. By doing so, it is likely that you’ll be able to find some champagne glasses. As long as they’re the same shape and size, you’ve got a good start. With these items, you will be able to create a very clever centerpiece, but you aren’t finished yet.

Think about adding a nice flower bloom to this arrangement. If you’re willing to do this, you can set the bloom under the cup portion of the glass, once it has been flipped upside done. After this, you will want to add a nice candle to the top. This will create a very cool display, without a whole lot of work. Remember that it is possible to create a variety of different decorations with upside down champagne glasses! Be sure to play around for a period of time, until you find something that you like!

Effortless Elegance

This is a fun little DIY project that you can create. The end result will give you a truly elegant centerpiece. However, it is going to be simple to create in the process. Here is a list of things that you are going to need to get started.

· Tall, square vase
· Clear gems
· Water
· 3 Calla Lilies

You will begin this project by placing your vase onto a good clean work area. Once the vase is placed on the table, you are going to insert your clear gems. You can place in as many as you want. Once the gems are placed in you will now pour in the water. Once again you can really put in as much water as you want.

After you have completed all the above steps, you will just simply insert your 3 Calla Lilies. You can arrange them in the vase, in any manner you choose. You also have the option of tying a green bow around the vase.

When it really comes down to it, the decision for your elegant centerpiece is yours to make and there are so many different ideas that you have to choose from. Never be afraid to get creative.

Personalized Vases

Personalized vases make the perfect wedding centerpiece base. It will not only provide the elegancy that you are searching for, but it is also capable of making a very beautiful table décor. You can purchase the vases online or at a jewelry store that sells crystal vases. Make sure that you place your order early, so you will have them in plenty of time to practice your DIY skills.

The most elegant way to customize the vase is with large cursive initials, if you choose to go this route, you should use the bride’s first initial and the groom’s first initial of the first and last name. You can fill them with diamond confetti, water balls, or sand, but make sure that the filler is appropriate for your wedding theme.


Overall, there are a massive number of possibilities and any of them could be the right one for you. Be sure to know exactly what you want, before you move forward. By doing this, you will not be able to falter and your wedding will be awesome! Remember that it is your big day and as long as you smile, you cannot lose!
