Creating gorgeous wedding centerpieces is possible even for brides on the tightest of budgets. FiftyFlowers.com offers their flowers at wholesale prices, directly from the source, which can then be arranged by the bridal party or family members ultimately leading to huge savings. Their team of designers is always helping brides come up with creative and budget friendly designs. Here they present three of their favorite five dollar wedding centerpiece design inspirations for brides on a budget.
There are a few tricks to budget centerpieces that one can keep in mind for all of the following looks. Garage sales, thrift stores, dollar stores and family heirlooms are go to sources for vases, vessels and containers. Every look described below can be created with approximately one-dollar or less spent on the vessels themselves. One needn’t search hard as many of these dollar-type stores even offer online, bulk ordering.
In addition, clustered decorations in which the display focuses on two to four small pieces instead of one large centerpiece are often more cost effective. For example, using three small bud vases instead of one large vase will always require fewer flowers and save money.

For a romantic wedding, the simple, delicate and romantic feel of Baby’s Breath cannot be beat. These small clusters of cloud-like blossoms reminiscent of air and lace are not just a filler flower anymore. Entire weddings have been created with just this simple, inexpensive and long-lasting beauty. For the five-dollar table simply group together half of a bunch of Baby’s Breath into a series of three or more tapered vases with a narrow opening, this helps hold the bunch together for a nice fluffy appearance. Baby’s Breath also looks great as a boutonniere, tucked in the flower girls hair or adorning the cake plate.
For a look that can easily be adapted to any wedding color(s) or theme pair a favorite flower, with candles and martini or wine glasses for a fun and colorful centerpiece. To create this look simply trim off the blooming head of a favorite full bloom flower such as a rose, mum or lisianthus; then, place the bloom on the table and cover with the wine or martini glass (the glass should be upside down). Finally, balance a votive-sized candle in either a matching or complementary color on the stem of the glass. Make this look stand out by displaying two to four glasses with different heights, shapes, and color combinations. Every other glass can be turned upright with the flower head floating in water. This centerpiece works great arranged down the length of a long table with a fun piece of material accenting it as a table runner.
Fiftyflowers.com also offers a trendy selection of "DIY Flower Combo" boxes in which flowers have been professionally paired up for the bride. Perhaps their most popular combination box is the Monochromatic White Combo Pack, although similar combinations are available in a variety of colors. The combination pack is available in three size options so it can be carefully scaled to the wedding size and includes Limonium, Daisies, Gerbera Daisies, Snapdragons and Alstroemerias providing an incredible blend of height, texture, and various head sizes. For a five-dollar table centerpiece try pairing up any combination of five stems in a small vase.
The final favorite is a rose petal and candle light centerpiece. Rose petals are an elegant way to add color, romance and sophistication. With over 35 different solid and mixed petal combinations there is something for every bride to choose from. To create this look fill three cylindrical vases, each slightly different heights, with water and rose petals and float a candle on top. This simple and modern centerpiece is always a hit and easily adapted to any wedding theme. For an added touch, and if the budget allows, look for round mirrors to set the vases on, the mirrors will reflect the flickering candle light adding depth and sparkle to the centerpiece.
