Well it’s not out of the box, but it’s not flowers either:

I’ve seen lots of centerpieces that have large vases with branches submerged in water with a floating candle like these. They still look floral without the huge expense of flowers.

You wouldn’t even need the branches – you could do sea glass, stones, or glass beads and it would look very modern!

I wish I knew more about the type of wedding you were having.

Making favors as centerpieces? Bam! Double duty AND you won’t have to worry about where the centerpieces go at the end of the night! The guests have already taken them away!

 

Since you’re doing yellow and navy in the spring, what about vases filled with lemons surrounded with carafes of water or lemonade…I bet your caterer has a few laying around:

I’ve also seen this done with veggies and it turned out freaking beautiful.

 

Personally? I’m pretty partial to balloons but I think that’s a pretty specific look

 

Or…my personal favorite….centerpieces you can eat.

I made terrariums out of old pickle jars, my centerpieces are costing me less than $2/table.

Test tubes in pretty racks with colored water. (Our tables are really small.)

Do you have a theme?  Or a really unique venue to play off of?  I went to a wedding in a museum where the centerpieces were tiny terrariums, they were super cute!

@Maci2013:  the birdcages are hired from a decor company but I know you can buy them in the shops in the uk for about £15-£20 each approx $20-$25 if my conversion is correct! I’m having ivy and flowers, candles and butterflies for a vintage look. this style for centrepieces is quite popular in Britain…if you have difficulty finding them in sure you could probably get them on etsy.com …they will be placed on mirrors which you could also get from ikea x

I have a balloon as a table number (hung from the string) and the weight is hidden in styrofoam covered in pillow fluff to look like a cloud. I have cranes coming from them but then thats for my theme. You could easily just do the balloons and styrofoam. Mine cost about $12 a table as I got the styrofoam for free…

Could do a vase with blue and yellow feathers coming out of it too.
