If you happen to be planning a wedding this year, our guide to 2018’s cute and simple wedding centerpieces is just what you need to take your wedding décor up a notch. Let’s take a look.

If you’re thinking we’ve lost our minds, think again. Yes, we’re all aware that marble is not only heavy in weight but it’s heavy on the pocket too!

And that’s why you can expect centerpieces that look and feel like marble but isn’t actually the ‘real deal’ to hit those wedding tables. Copper and brass are two metals that flow well with marble, the same case being with textured concrete. That’s why wedding planners are mixing these materials up for an element that depicts raw elegant vibes all the way.

The subtle gray and white color palette give brides the opportunity to contrast other vibrant floral and table elements too. Did we mention that luxurious lustrous finish marble has the ability to showcase on its own?

Trend # 2- The Rise of the Metallics

2017 saw the emergence of silver being widely used as centerpieces at weddings. For 2018, the year calls for the rise of other metallics, copper to be specific.

From copper vases and charger plates to candelabras and votive holders, copper can be utilized as an element of glamour and chic incorporated into centerpieces at weddings.

What’s amazing about copper is how near this metal’s appearance resembles the hue rose gold. Brides who plan on using a rose gold color palette décor for their wedding are sure to experiment with this unique centerpiece trend.

If you’re in search for a little wow factor this year for your wedding table centerpieces, why not incorporate clear elements to tie in all the décor pieces seamlessly together.

Lucite and Plexiglas are two new materials wedding planners are fancying this year for décor and we don’t blame them why. You can come up with cubes and shelvings using them and add levels to it too for a dynamic approach. Each level can be filled with sea rocks, water plants, shells, etc.

If that wasn’t versatile enough, how about suspending clear Plexiglas from the ceiling in the form of little boxes filled with flowers. It can help give the imaginary feeling as if floral is floating in air. There is an endless array of possible combinations to choose from.
