Many brides feel lost when searching for the wedding reception floral arrangements because the flowers for the season of their wedding are not to their liking or their colors don’t match their wedding décor color palette. This past season, our New York wedding photographers have noticed the trend of wedding receptions centerpieces that rely on simple elegance and not flowers for their beauty. Flowerless wedding centerpieces are a great option for any wedding style.
For beach wedding receptions, glass vessels or votive centerpieces filled with coral make elegant wedding reception decorations. Natural coral comes in many different shapes, sizes and colors but we recommend small white coral for your summer-inspired wedding centerpieces. Another option for beach wedding reception centerpieces would be to include pieces of driftwood found on the beach.
For rustic wedding receptions, there are plenty of great options for wedding reception centerpieces. For vintage inspired wedding decorations, use old hardback books and candles on your wedding reception tables. Another great idea for retro-inspired wedding reception centerpieces are hand-painted serving-wear filled with fruit, like clementines and oranges. You can also add other non-floral plants, like succulents to give your rustic wedding décor a more southwestern flair.
There are so many great options for wedding centerpieces that flowers are no longer necessary to have a beautiful wedding reception. Not using flowers for your centerpieces will not only give you more creativity to match the style and theme of your wedding but it will also save you money. Non-floral centerpieces are an exciting new trends for weddings in 2014 and we can’t wait to see how you will interpret it in your wedding reception décor.
