Flowers are one of the most popular traditions at any wedding celebration. Incorporate the flowers of your choice onto every table.

Here your design can be uniform on each table if possible, using the china for both aesthetic and practical reasons. A small teapot and other items can serve as the main part of the centerpiece with other aspects added on as well. Fill some of the pieces with flowers, or place them on a designed handkerchief for an additional flare. This china can be as intricate or simple as you want depending on the style and feel of your wedding.
Along with the flower theme, simple herbs placed in painted pots can be the perfect centerpieces for your wedding festivities. Include small packets of seeds that can be given to each guest as they leave. Choose the herbs that you love the look and smell, helping to elevate the atmosphere of the event. This can contribute to a rustic themed wedding, bringing nature into your wedding.
Depending on the season you get married in, incorporate it into the centerpiece of your tables. For example, a fall wedding can include branches, fruits, and other inexpensive foliage in high vases. A winter wedding may include white or pine tree branches for a more rustic look. Choose the colors that will best suit the season as well as your planned wedding colors.
