I was looking for some pics for inspiration of some non-floral decor and centerpieces. I’m not really that into flowers and I know that they eat up a bunch of the budget, so we’re trying to save in that area.
Any suggestions, as always, are greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys 🙂

Cotton! They are really beautiful actually. Do they count as a flower? How about cotton candy?

@MrsFuzzyFace: Oh wow! That is different! I normally would enjoy pink, but cotton candy makes me sick to my stomach unfortunately and that kind of reminds me of it. Thanks for the outside the box suggestion though, I appreciate it!

1.Scroll down till you find the pic of the centerpieces- bottles and vases spray painted white with branches in one, wool pom poms in another, a succulent in a coffee cup, all enclosed in a wood frame.

2. Do framed pics of the bride and groom in childhood.
You could use the Ikea Tolsby frame
or suspend the pics in a mason jar of oil.
3. Do a vase of pinwheels- they could double as a favor
4. This lantern with stones, succulent and candle is one of my favorite non floral centerpieces:
this is another lantern centerpiece- you could use greenery, berries and branches rather than flowers
8. these are flowers but not the same old floral arrangement- they are called breakaway centerpieces. You use small potted plants- for spring you could use blooming bulbs- and cluster them in the center. Each guests gets to take one home.

@julies1949: Thank you! I love a couple of the ideas you posted! Want to hear something funny? The wedding in the first link you posted took place at my venue 🙂

@msfuturea: I’m a big fan of candles. I think it would be a nice touch. Hopefully, if I go that route they’ll be cheaper than flowers

@SoCoBlue: Candles would be way cheaper than flowers. Def check out sites which sell candles in bulk. GL!

We’re doing birdcages filled with nests and LED candles (since our venue does not allow real candles). The cages are great because we’ll attempt to sell them after the wedding. We bought bird table numbers from Etsy.
