Hudson Valley Weddings – 7 Unique Ideas for Non-Floral Centerpieces for Weddings

Finding the right decorative ideas for your wedding is a great way of ensuring your wedding is a success. You want to pay attention to the décor to ensure your wedding venue looks as amazing as you feel inside on your big day. If you are thinking about your centerpieces you should keep in mind that you don’t necessarily need to go with floral centerpieces. Here are seven surprisingly cute & unique non-floral centerpiece ideas for your Hudson Valley wedding.

1. Frozen Fruit

A very quirky way to draw your guests’ attention is with frozen centerpieces. These are especially amazing for a winter wedding. You can freeze fruit pieces or stone pebbles inside an ice block. This will surely get people talking and it’s a very elegant way to add color to your wedding decorations. 

2. Corals, Shells and Rustic Wood

If you are getting married in one of the Hudson Valley river wedding venues, then nautical centerpieces are a great idea. You could add corals and shells into a small wooden box for a quick, nautical look. If you want your corals and shells to look a bit funkier, then paint them in bright colors.
  3. Colorful Leaves

 For an autumn wedding, you could go with amazing leaf centerpieces. Take a tall glass vase and fill it with colorful leaves. You can use hairspray to stick the leaves on the side of the vase for an elegant look. You can then add a few of these vases per table, as well as include small jars with candles to the mix.

4. Book Displays

It might seem quite odd, but you can create lovely centerpieces with books. All you need to do is pile up a few books to each table and perhaps scatter around some candles around the books. Alternatively, you can use a fruit bowl on top of the books.
 5. Edible Goodies

There is no reason why your centerpiece cannot be something edible. It is a good idea to put assemble a large fruit and berry display for your guests to snack from. You can also make elaborative centerpieces from cake-pops and cupcakes, for example. This a fun way to keep your guests entertained as well.

 6. A Set of Games

As well as providing something to eat, your centerpiece can also be something entertaining to do. A very interactive idea is to add a small box full of different games that guests can play. For example, you can include card games and small board games. This is an especially great centerpiece idea if you got plenty of children attending the wedding.

7. Colorful Feathers

Finally, instead of using colorful flowers you can opt for colorful feathers as well. Peacock feathers are especially a lovely way to decorate your tables. You can use tall vases and fill them with feathers. You can also hang little crystals from the feathers to add a bit more sparkle to your centerpiece.

The above ideas are great if you are looking for something non-floral. Going for non-floral centerpieces can be a good way to save some money as well. For more amazing wedding tips you should sign up for our FREE wedding secret series.
