Non-Floral Centerpiece Ideas

There is no rule that says you must have flowers at your wedding and/or reception. So if flowers just aren't your thing, you'd rather allocate that huge chunk of change for your honeymoon, or you're just looking for something different; give a try to any of these non-floral centerpiece inspirations!

Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Lanterns

Group different sized and shaped lanterns to make a  focal center-point. Surround with candles, tea lights, bud vases, rocks, sea-shells, etc..

Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Candles

The simplicity of an all candle centerpiece display is a breathtaking way to add ambiance to any non-floral inspired event. Choose from a wide array of shapes, colors, and sizes.  Also try using an assortment of different candle holders. Finally arrange and light.  
Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Moss

Moss brings a gorgeous rustic touch while also giving a punch of eye-catching color, which tends to be a difficult task without touches of floral! As an added bonus, moss can last for several years so you'll be able to use it again and again!
Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Fruits and Veggies

Fruits and veggies make fabulous non-floral centerpieces! With such vibrant colors it just may be the next best thing to flowers. 

Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Desserts

Why not give guests easy access to all the goodies your wedding has to offer by placing desserts on each table as a substitute to floral arrangements?!
Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Feathers

A perfect substitute for a non-floral centerpiece because there are so many types and colors to choose from!

Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Pumpkins

Pumpkins are perfect for a fall wedding! Try orange, white, or both! Use an arrangement of sizes from large to the mini-pumpkins. Leave as is or carve, I recommend carving table numbers or your monogram into some!
Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Hay & Cotton

Hay and cotton make beautiful alternatives to flowers for a fall wedding.  Arrange in mason jars, antique cans, or simply arrange loose on table-scape's.

Non-Floral Centerpiece Idea: Ornaments

Ornaments make a fabulous non-floral centerpiece for winter weddings. They come in endless shapes and colors that are sure to match any wedding color scheme.

This was just a sampling of some of my non-floral wedding centerpiece ideas. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss more ideas, I love all to talk about all things wedding and design!


  1. Can anyone suggest me options for the Wedding venues in Miami? I am looking for your suggestions and any advice would be appreciable.

  2. Lovely collection of these non-floral centrepieces but in my wedding we had beautiful fresh flower centerpiece. All Floral Delivery was done by a nearby florist. He provided fresh flowers and that too on a good price.
