    I think it really adds to the table.. I don’t think they need to be overly expensive or huge, but a little something is nice.

    Then put useful things on the table. For example I love wine bottles with table numbers printed on them as centre pieces, serving as triple purpose. you could even group them together for effect, use different colours and surround with candles and finish. Disposible  Camera, sparklers for the end of the night can all be used to make useful centrepieces

    I second leecy87 and jenilynevette. I’ve also heard of people having desserts as their centerpiece.

    We are doing something like this for our head table:

    but with mararita glasses, and it’ll be pink instead. We can get plastic 11″ margarita glasses for $7 each, then just need submersiable led lights, flowers & water beads! It will also be surounded by tons of taper candles, votice candles, & tall tealight candledholders, as well as table scatter.

    The rest of the tables will have all kinds of the same candles, bud vases with roses, & each table will have a wine bottle.

    Each place settings will have 1 dinner plate, 1 salad plate, 1 soup bowl, cutlery, 1 cupcake w/ stand, water glass & toasting glass, with a favor on each place settings as well.

    The head table centerpieces are probably costing me around $20 each, and the rest are probably around $10.

    I definitely think YAY centerpieces.  That’s what seperates a regular dinner table from a wedding reception. As

    @leecy87: suggested, there’s tons of useful things you can put on there. But leaving it empty would be a little bare, imo.

    I say if the budget is tight, thats fine to leave them out. People forget the decor as soon as they walk out, I have been to few weddings, and can not remember what anyone had as centerpiece. Guests remember overall atmosphere, so invest in good food, drinks and great dj. But the decor is not a must, and will save you hundreds of dollars towards other more important elements.

    Less is more. If simplicity is your style GO FOR IT! I’m excited to see pics!

    If you don’t want them, don’t have them. The only weddings where I actively remember the centerpieces are the ones where we had to move them (yes, off to the table) to be able to speak to one another. That makes for a good laugh, but defeats the purpose. 

    You said you were thinking of maybe doing candles and sparklies. Why not do candles at different heights (like an 8″, a 5″, and a 3″) grouped together with the sparklies around them? It’s simple, and I think, elegant without the use of a mountain of flowers. This also depends on the size and shape of your tables, now that I think of it. Perhaps a low container with water with candles floating in it to take up space on a large table? 

    Just some food for thought.
