Another great idea would be to use candles to form centerpieces. As simple candles placed in candle holders may seem something foreseeable, change their appearance by arranging feathers at their base.

When planning an elegant and unique wedding, try to think of beautiful and simple elements that can be combined in order to achieve impressive decorations. Find containers that have interesting shapes and colors, use food coloring to color the water and use flowers with beautiful hues. These are the main elements that you need to think of, and then everything can be easily developed from this base.
Buy tall transparent vases and fill them with water. Color the water with food coloring for achieving the desired hue that will match the colors from your other decorations. Place inside some long-stemmed flowers to complete the look. A single vase on each table looks nice, but a real centerpiece must be a little more complicated, so feel free to use three vases. If you want to add an interesting accent, make sure to use vases with different heights. This adds depth to your centerpiece, removing that impression of having insipid decorations.
Ostrich feathers are considered to be very modern and appropriate for grandiose weddings. These can be colored in any hue you like, so you will have no problem when trying to make them match your other decorating items. Tall transparent vases are the perfect containers for colorful ostrich feathers, as they allow you to be flexible in choosing their color. A summer wedding is complemented by pink ostrich feathers, whereas in fall burnt red and burgundy are the perfect color choices.
Buy white photo frames and paint them in a shade that is suitable when combined with other colors found in the chair covers and tablecloths. Place inside black and white photos with the bride and groom and dispose the photo frames back-to-back in the table’s center. Fill the area between the frames with flower blossoms and sprinkle flower petals around this centerpiece.
Gel candles are really in trend today. Use martini glasses as containers and place gel candles inside. Choose your desired color and scent, as there are numerous possibilities.
Towering flower centerpieces look amazing and will arrest everyone’s attention. Their size alone makes them stunning statements, so don’t try to make them more complicated by adding colors that have nothing to do with the wedding's theme. Select them in such a way as to maintain a certain required harmony and don’t over decorate them.
Elegant unique wedding centerpieces are those that amaze you with their simple and delicate appearance and not those that are too complicated and overloaded.
