wedding ideas

It can be hard to think outside of the box when it comes to wedding centerpieces, 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.

I love these unique wedding centerpiece ideas, below, for a whole bunch of reasons. Aside from one or two (hello, “Up in the Air” tablescape), they are all relatively easy to DIY or show to a wedding planner for inspiration.
