#5 Smaller vase tucked within a larger vase: Round vases are ideal because you can easily see the inside from any angle. A pretty bouquet inside the smaller vase will look lovely as it spills over the top of the larger vase. Position your smaller vase in i.e. sand, cranberries, glass beads–whatever looks best with your wedding style. Pretty simple. Pretty interesting.

From a winter wedding to a beach wedding these budget-friendly and easy DIY centerpiece ideas would look fabulous for any less-than-formal wedding style. What do you think?

 

The look of snow on candles in a variety of heights …

Warm and cool at the same time

Wouldn’t these be pretty for a winter wedding?  The three candles are rolled and sitting in Epsom Salts and adorned with pine needles and cones. How easy is that? The silver tray adds a sophisticated touch but any tray in your wedding theme would suffice.

Modern twist on the traditional combo of candles & flowers …

Dahlia flowers tied to tall vases

I love single stem flower arrangements and this display is pretty and unique. Dahlia flower heads can get pretty big so there is potential to make a *pretty* dramatic statement. Use matching raffia or ribbon to attach the stem onto the vase. Finally, fill the shallow dish with water to keep your pretty flower refreshed. Voila!

One votive. Two candle holders …

Set the mood with tinted water

Tint the water and drop a votive in another container into the water. Imagine the ambient glow this presentation would give … lovely and romantic!

Beach-inspired wedding decor …

Inspired by the sea …

Here’s an idea that would be perfect for an outdoor beach wedding. Here is a branch, painted red to look like a Manzanita branch and candles in a variety of holders–wrapped in white drawing paper that have been pierced with a Japanese hole punch.
