It can be hard to think outside of the box when it comes to wedding centre pieces, and that’s OK. Flowers in simple vases will always look beautiful, and there’s no need to overthink every item that should go on your wedding tables. But when you DO come across fun wedding ideas that you haven’t seen a gazillion other times, your creativity levels can get a much-needed boost.

We love these unique wedding centre piece ideas for a whole bunch of reasons. Aside from one or two, they are all also relatively easy to DIY or show to your wedding planner for inspiration.

Birdcages

Antique birdcages are perfect for a vintage-inspired wedding.

Books

Literary-loving couples can't go wrong with seasoned vintage novels in place of floral centre pieces. Stack your favourite titles or gorgeous bound volumes for a simple yet meaningful display.

Cascading orchids in a single hue are elegant and fun — perfect for anything from a black tie affair to a backyard bash. Tip: Get the most bang for your buck by opting for potted rather than cut orchids.

Ordinary To Extraordinary

If you're using long tables, consider using multiple centre pieces at varying heights — they'll pull your guests' eyes along the length of the room. Low, rectangular vases filled with succulents and pebbles paired with high, lemon-filled chalices completes this trendy look.
