Over the course of the year, the Hamilton Photography team has come across a fair share of unique, inspirational wedding table arrangements. We wanted to take some time to share some themes that tend to reoccur by popular demand as well as those that are just downright unique and intriguing!
1. Go Tall
Few wedding table centerpieces have the ability to catch the eye as quickly as these little monuments do. Tall and tree-like, they are bold yet unobtrusive and take up very little space at the table. They also offer tons of creative options, such as hanging ornaments from the branches.
2. Keep It Simple
Sometimes, less is more. A simple but beautiful flower arrangement can be all a table needs to add an understated elegant feel to your reception!
A good way to put a unique spin on your wedding is to consider assigning a common color theme to your table decorations, such as matching the flowers to the drinking vessels, napkins, or favors. Monochrome table decor really brings a cohesive feel to your reception room. Red, blue, and white are popular wedding colors!
Feathers are a fun and unique way to add texture and to jazz up any wedding reception centerpiece.
5. Mason Jars
Since their comeback from antiquity, Mason Jars have quickly become the world’s most popular and beloved little container. Why not dress them up a bit and use them as beautiful vases for your wedding table flower centerpiece? Burlap and lace make great fabrics to wrap them with!
6. Shabby Chic
This is what happens when the frayed and organic natures of found objects fuse with the the elegance and fashion of a wedding. This is perfect for those who want to bring the charm of the outdoors to your indoor wedding. Using objects such as flowers, twigs, moss, weathered wood, and antique artifacts, the combinations for naturalistic table centerpieces and favors are literally endless.
7. Submerged In Water
We all have an innate desire to preserve all of life’s special moments for as long as possible; wedding days especially. Flowers and plants submerged in water is a rather unique wedding centerpiece idea that not only looks cool, but can preserve your flowers for a lot longer than they would last otherwise in open air. They have a mysterious, aquatic look to them which could be great for indoor venues that have dimmer atmospheres.
Candles are great in that they are both equally romantic and functional. And they make fantastic wedding centerpieces. Here are examples of ways to house your candles, whether in a lantern, a simple tea light, or suspended over a submerged flower vase.
