Unique Wedding Centerpieces
A couple wishing to really make a statement at their wedding may want to invest in
truly unique centerpieces.
Typically reception halls do not allow for a great deal of creativity in the decorations as they utilize standard
table linens and place settings.
However, utilizing unique wedding centerpieces is one way that the bride and groom can make their
reception truly memorable. Incorporating live fish into the centerpieces is one truly unique centerpiece idea for a
Simple glass bowls can be used and filled with a few colorful glass marbles along with some water and an exotic
and colorful fish. You could even include a small amount of fish food at the table where children will be sitting
with careful instructions on how to avoid overfeeding the fish. The children will have a lot of fun and will be
less distracted then they would have been with a more traditional centerpiece on the table. This lively and
interactive centerpiece idea is sure to be a hit with kids and will even keep adults entertained.
Other centerpiece ideas
Another unique wedding centerpiece idea is to arrange a
collection of board games in the center of each table. This idea is not only unique but if the guests choose
to partake in the games; it gives the guests at the table the opportunity and incentive to get to know those
seated at their table if they don’t already know them. This is an excellent option for guests who don’t enjoy
dancing because they won’t feel so left out of the fun of the wedding. Cakes or cupcakes arranged on a serving
tray and artfully decorated with fresh or artificial flowers also make a lovely and unique centerpiece. These
cakes can be used in place of the traditional wedding cake. Using several small cakes as centerpieces is not
only an extremely unique centerpiece idea but it also allows the couple the option of having several different
types of cakes and fillings.
These wedding centerpieces can be collected by the wait staff and sliced in the kitchen for
desert or they can be sliced at the individual tables for additional entertainment value. An attractive journal
that matches the theme of the wedding along with several pens can also serve as a unique centerpiece. This
centerpiece will not only look lovely on the table but can also be used by the guests to leave messages of
congratulations or words of advice for the couple. This way the couple not only had a unique centerpiece but they
also have a treasured souvenir of their wedding day in the kind words recorded by their wedding guests. Mirrors and
candles can also be used to create unique centerpieces. An attractive round mirror could be placed in the center of
the table with several lit candles resting on the glass.The flickering light of the candles reflecting on the glass
makes for a very striking centerpiece especially if the light in the reception hall is kept dim.
Gift boxes of several sizes can also be used to create unique centerpieces. The
couple could take gift boxes of three different sizes and wrap each box in a different but complementary piece
of wrapping paper. Once the gift boxes are wrapped they can be glued together at odd angles to create very
unique centerpieces. Another unique centerpiece idea is to have puzzles made up from pictures of the couple.
The pieces of the puzzle can be left scattered on the table. This unique centerpiece idea encourages the
people sitting at the table to work together to try to put the puzzle together. This is especially useful if
many of the guests do not know each other because it is a great ice breaker.
An assortment of Champagne flutes also makes a truly unique centerpiece.You can purchase an assortment of flutes
of various shapes and sizes from a thrift store and clean them up to use them as centerpieces. The flutes can be
arranged in an attractive but random pattern to create a unique centerpiece for any occasion. The choice of the
centerpieces is one of the only opportunities that a couple has to express their individuality and ensure that
their wedding reception really stands out. While some unique centerpiece ideas may require more of an effort than
the traditional centerpiece of flowers, a unique centerpiece is more likely to be remembered than a boring one.
