10 Creative Non-Floral Centerpieces

Guess how much the average bride in New Jersey spends on flowers for her wedding.  Go ahead - guess.


I will let that sink in.  That's a whole lot of money for something that will most likely get thrown away at the end of the night. 

Most brides think they absolutely have to have flowers everywhere.  Says who?  Yes - flowers add beauty, elegance and glorious pops of color.  And yes - flowers will always be equated with weddings.  And I'm not saying you should eliminate flowers from your budget altogether. 

But how about some creative, out-of-the-box centerpieces that are sure to "wow" and have absolutely nothing to do with flowers?  Now we're talking...

I give to you my personal favorite 10 Non-Floral Centerpieces:

1. Fruit

2. Candles

3. Books


4. Greenery

5. Lanterns

6. Beachscape

7. Pinwheels

8. Candy

9. Paper Flowers

10. Live Fish

If you've come across any clever non-floral centerpieces, please share them in the comments!


  1. The live fish centerpieces are cruel. Don't do that!

    1. I agree - I'd also be concerned that drunk people would knock them over or decide to pour alcohol in them or something.

  2. Putting animals in a candle holder is cruel...their glasservice gets hot....It's animal cruelty
