Unique Centerpiece Ideas

  • One couple we worked with wanted their guests to play board games at the reception, so each table had a different board game that everyone played after dinner. It went over very well, and the guests had a blast.

  • Replicas of monuments or buildings make an interesting wedding centerpiece. Ideas include the Eiffel Tower and Empire State Building.

  • Wedding cake centerpieces are a unique alternative. Have a 12 inch decorative wedding cake atop a silver pedestal in the center of each table at the reception. When it is time to cut the cake, have your guests join you by cutting their own cake.
