Our wedding is not for a while, so we have time. But I am having a hard time finding centerpieces that my fh and I can agree on. Our colors are light blue and yellow, and it is a brunch wedding. We are having around 75 people, and the venue is very open with a lot of windows. we are not having alcohol and there will be a little dancing. I dont know what to do for centerpieces! We do not like the huge flower displays or anything, we just want it small and sweet.

@alexa62: Do you have a theme or “feel” that you are going for? Rustic” garden”
Do you have interests or hobbies that you could use to personalize the centerpieces?
eg if you are in science you could use beakers for a vase
you could incororate the “brunch” by using tea or coffee pots as vases

I would maybe suggest some smaller floral arrangements. You could also think of other objects that might suit your tastes for use as a centerpiece. For example, we’re doing books as part of ours since we both love to read and FI worked as a librarian.
Here’s some ideas for smaller simple floral arrangements

OMG Just stack waffles in the middle of your tables hahaha 🙂
Actually, what you COULD do is make it a functional centerpiece – some nice/vintage (interesting!) pitchers with OJ and water in them maybe, with some flowers and how about a newspaper underneath?
I WISH I was having a brunch wedding! The more I hear about them the more jealous I get!

What about using some candles and lanterns too? Ikea has some really cool ones for cheap too!

I absolutely love succulents and wanted those rather than flowers for my centrepieces. The wedding was pretty small (44 including us) and the venue was beautiful so we didn’t want to overwhelm it with too much decor or buy loads of jars/cups/vases that we would never use again.
I had an idea in my head and my wonderful parents grew the plants and made the log holders. I loved them but was not sure how the guests would react as they’re not what most people have. In fact everyone loved them and fought over who got to take them home at the end of the evening!
This is what we ended up with – 2 per table of 8 people with a large terracottapot in the middle.

We have a rustic theme. We are doing picture frames with lyricsroom country songs in some and movie quotes in others. A simple vase with a light pink gerbera daisy. (which are the flowers in my bouquet) and a minature deer rack. ( my FI loves to hunt)
