7 Unique Wedding Centerpieces with Texture

Posted April 11, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 8 Comments

Selecting a centerpiece for any event can be a daunting task that tends to be more difficult for weddings. After spending months of planning – and perhaps crafting – your wedding centerpieces, they ought to be both memorable and unique. One of the first aspects of your decor seen by guests is the centerpiece, so make it a good one! Keep in mind that both color and texture are equally important when selecting the centerpiece. Also, a centerpiece does not necessarily have to be large-and-in-charge. In fact, some of my favorite centerpieces through the years have been subtle, sweet, and simple – a little bit goes a long way. For instance, these unique wedding centerpieces spotted at Floresdelsol are made of dried floral and plant textures (such as moss, spring thistles, and status flowers) so they are on the simple side yet offer bright vivid colors and fresh textures. It is rare to find centerpieces, such as these, that can be used after the wedding as decor in your love nest; in fact, the flowers are dried so they can be admired forever.
