Choose seasonal flowers for decking up your wedding tables as you can get them at really low prices compared to those that are not seasonal. For example, if you are getting married in summer, pick locally grown flowers like peonies that are easily available at local flower shops. There are many creative ways to deck up your table with floral arrangements. Here are a few examples:

  • Buy cheap mason jars and fill these with seasonal blooms in various shades.
  • Paint tall wine bottles in bright hues. Then, fill these up with colourful blooms that you can buy from a flower shop.
  • Buy small buckets and have them painted with any wording of your choice, then fill water and some freshly cut flowers.

2. Foliage decorations

It’s not necessary that your wedding tables must only feature colourful blooms. You can lend a natural look to your table’s decor by adding some foliage and greens.
