Inexpensive Submerged Floral Centerpieces

If cutting costs is your priority for your wedding, you will be happy to know that you can definitely make some changes in the floral centerpiece department. Let’s face it—flowers can be quite expensive when it comes to wedding decorations. The truth is that they do add a certain style and charm to the big day. They are ultimately, in most people’s opinions, an important part of the day. The good news is that you can have submerged floral centerpieces that will decorate the reception hall, look fabulous and modern, and help you save some money.

These centerpieces look bold and beautiful—just like most brides like them, and they cost a fraction of the price of standard centerpieces. Just take a moment to think about the number of individual flowers that make a large centerpiece. Then, take that number and multiply it with eight or more tables and you will get a huge amount that will make you spend a fortune. You may love the standard centerpieces. Yes, they do look quite stunning; but give these submerged floral centerpieces a chance and you will be surprised.

So, what are they all about? Well, first of all, these unique centerpieces consist of cylindrical vases, water, and flowers, at a minimum. The florist fills the tall cylindrical vases with water and then submerges the flowers in them. These look striking and the best part for the bride on the budget is that only a few flowers fill the vase. You do not need to purchase tons of flowers and fillers. Many different kinds of flowers do well in these centerpieces. You can use amaryllis, tulips, orchids and more—depending on what your budget permits. When it comes to color, this arrangement works best with monochromatic color schemes. It will look clean and modern when it’s done in a single color scheme.

Depending on your budget and style, you can also add creative details. If you have some money to spend, you can have a few cylinders in different heights on each table. You can use the same type of flower in each cylindrical vase, or you can use different types. Regardless of the flower, it is still best to stick to one color palette. Further, you can choose to add other decorative details to the vase. Flowers and water do not need to be the only contents. These inexpensive wedding centerpieces also work well with pebbles added to the bottoms. This would create a “Zen” look. They would also work well with other crystal and pearl-like details instead of stones. Another option would be to float candles in the water. Therefore, you have several ways to enhance your submerged floral centerpieces. Use your creativity and make sure these arrangements fit your personal style.

The great thing about these wedding centerpieces is that they might be cheap, but they look quite expensive. They fill up a table and room. They will be the topic of conversation as your guests sit around their tables. This affordable wedding trend is bound to be a hit for years to come.
