Alternative centerpieces on your wedding dinner table

They always say there is no wedding without flowers and they are quite right, but I (Carmen) find the centerpieces that we put on the table a bit standard. That is why I went looking for nice alternatives and they are fortunate enough, because abroad it is less common and a lot more expensive to use flowers. In addition, the centerpieces are an ideal way to implement your chosen theme.

As you can see, some examples are even a lot cheaper and easy to make yourself.

Despite these alternatives, I am still not 100% sure whether I'm going for an alternative. I am secretly a little bit attached to a few beautiful centerpieces that consist entirely of flowers that I have come across, fortunately I still have the time to think about it!

Tips for centerpieces: Flowers, Tree / Branches, Books, Fruit, Candles, Tin, Letters, Pisces, Glass Jars, Photos .. and so on!
