Wedding centerpieces don't have to be boring
April 24, 2009
Most brides want to make their wedding day unique, either in terms of the ceremony or their dress. But when that isn't a financial possibility, one way to make your wedding stand out is to be creative with the centerpieces at the reception.
In an effort to personalize the day a bit more, some brides are substituting the traditional flower arrangement for other options such as a different photograph of the bride and groom on each table.
One idea is to do the pictures chronologically, with the younger pictures at the table with the older relatives, to remind them of how you used to be. The older pictures of the both of you from high school or college can go on the tables with your friends.
In terms of frames, pick one that goes with the colors of the reception so it ties everything in nicely. For those who may be willing to spend a little extra money, digital picture frames would be a contemporary touch and may be ideal if your reception will have dim lighting.
