I used the candelabras owned by the venue.  I just had flowers put in the bowls attached to them (but could have just had the candelabras).

We are setting out framed photos (of us together, of us as kids, other favorite family photos, etc.) on the tables, and will also be getting a bunch of small live ivy plants in foil-wrapped pots. We are hoping that the photos will serve as conversation starters: guests can walk around the tables to see all the pictures, and mingle as they go. The potted ivies are only $2-3 apiece, from a local greenhouse, and we will be inviting guests to adopt them and bring them home at the end of the evening. We may do one or several per table, depending on how large they are and how long the runners end up being. Either way, the floral part will not be expensive and the photos are things we already have (my mom saved a bunch of frames from my sister’s wedding a few years ago).

If you don’t want to deal with leftover centerpeces after the wedding, a breakaway centerpiece as the pp suggested would be deal. You can buy small plants anywhere you can find a good buy and place them in cute pots from the dollar store. If you want more to the centerpiece you could get old books at the thrift store, stack them in the middle, top with a mason jar with a candle, then surround the books with the plants.

We are having a fall themed wedding so this could be tailored to fit your theme. I am making fall leaf wreaths ( made of grapevine wreaths and  fall leaves from michaels or hobby lobby) and placing a lantern in the center from Ikea. Each centerpiece probably cost about 7-10 dollars to make depending on quality or price of each item.
