Are you a Do-It-Yourself bride who is planning on putting together your own simple centerpieces? If you are planning on doing the table centerpieces together yourself, it's likely because you are planning a wedding on a budget. I'd like to share a few tips for your centerpieces that I've used many times with my budget brides, and they are especially easy to do. Gather a few of your bridesmaids or family members to help you complete the task on the big day.

Try doing a demo before getting started so that everyone has a visual example of just what they will be doing. We are going to stick with ideas that are both simple and inexpensive.

Table centerpieces for any budget…

The best part about doing something simple is that you can put your own twist on things by changing just a few things like the shape of vase, adding colored water or changing the type of flower you use. Don't be afraid to put your signature on your centerpieces by adding a special touch.

I've found that you can do a lot, with quite little, and even items as simple as an elegant vase and a mirror can be the start of really great wedding centerpieces.

A few tricks…

Group vases together to take a centerpiece up a notch. You can do this with vases of a similar size or different sizes. This also looks clean and sleek if you use identical vases in graduated sizes.

Use mirrors to take advantage of romantic lighting like candles or colorful LED lights. You'll get more bang for your buck this way.

Use water to add drama. You can float flowers or candles in water or you can use colorful water to fill your vases instead of plain old H2O.
