Top tips for creating centrepieces that are all about you

Whatever your wedding theme or colour scheme, your wedding tables will be focal points during your wedding breakfast and reception. With personalisation certain to be at the heart of many of your wedding plans, customising your centrepieces with your personal style, tastes and interests in mind is a must.

Read on to discover our ideas for personalised centrepieces and make sure your décor represents you in the most wonderful way.

For bookworms

If you or your partner has a passion for all things literary, incorporating books into your table centrepieces is an easy and eye-catching wedding décor win. Couples going for a vintage theme will want to take this advice from Hitched when creating their book-based displays:

“Books are another key design element of a vintage-style wedding – we’re talking about the kinds of august tomes you’d expect to find in the library of a grand country house. Add a different literary quote for each table.”

Whether you’re picking the books featured in your centrepieces for their good looks or their content, stacked displays offer a stylish and unique look, especially when combined with flowers and ornate glassware.

For competitive couples

When do centrepieces double as wedding entertainment when they’re modelled on your favourite board games of course!

If the family game night is a bit of a big deal in your house, creating centrepieces from your collection of board games is the way to go, and they’ll make excellent post-dinner activities for big and little kids alike.

Adorn each reception table with an iconic game. Guests can even rotate throughout the evening to sample all your favourites. It’s a great way to work the room!

For music lovers

If it was a shared love of music that brought you and your partner together, using sheet music or your favourite lyrics to create custom centrepieces will deliver meaningful and attractive displays.

Sheet music can be printed, rolled into scrolls and displayed in elegant glass vases to ensure one-of-a-kind centrepieces. You could even use the sheet music for your favourite tunes or songs from your wedding playlist for an extra personal touch.

For green-fingered brides and grooms

If growing your own is what you are passionate about and your garden is where you spend most of your spare time, you may already have all you need to create some rather impressive reception centrepieces. Thankfully, you don’t have to be an experienced florist to brighten up your wedding décor with your home-grown goodies.

With the right accessories, you can display greenery artfully. Use sprayed wine bottles, wicker baskets, wooden crates, metallic buckets, mason jars, hessian wrap, clear and coloured glass vases, and even hollowed out pumpkins (perfect for autumn weddings!) to pot fresh and dried flowers, foliage and branches to guarantee a magical table display and a super sustainable wedding.

For the health conscious

If you’re proud to live a very healthy and active lifestyle, your five-a-day could provide simple but vibrant centrepieces. Brightly coloured fruits – like lemons, limes and oranges – are great choices and can be displayed stylishly using glassware.

Craving something sweeter? Confectionary can be used to create stunning table displays and a tempting treat for the table. Just be sure to get your photographer to shoot your table displays before guests can get their hands on them!
