DIY : Non-Floral Centerpieces

One question I get asked a lot is how can I cut the cost of my wedding? Personally, I don't have a special event planner's secret to magically create a wedding that should cost $50,000 to a wedding that will cost $7,500 - although that would be so cool to have! If you are trying to plan a event on a budget one suggestion would be to incorporate non-floral centerpieces. There are so many amazing ideas, like the nest bell jars. But before you run out and start buying your material to build your nests, be sure the non-floral centerpieces will actually cost less money than floral centerpieces. Sometimes clients tend to forget that there are a lot of items necessary to pull off the adorable non-floral centerpiece. Items like specialty linens, vases, candles, mirrors and all sorts of other details. And these little details add up.

Before taking the non-floral centerpiece route, talk to your event planner or a florist. Give them your budget and your vision and let them go over what your options are. This way you can make an informed decision rather than jeopardizing your tablescapes.
