Water-Filled Candle Centerpieces

These centerpieces are simple yet elegant -- and are perfect for the bride who wants to save money by doing a couple of DIY projects! Simply fill a couple of different sized vases with flowers and water and rest a flat-bottomed candle on top.

Fairy Tale Inspiration

Sticking with the theme of adding flowers to tall pillar vases, you could try something like this. Putting one red rose with its stem in a tall, water-filled vase will give you a unique centerpiece. It's reminiscent of the rose from Disney's Beauty and the Beast, which inspires its own kind of magic.

Table Runner

If you have long tables at your wedding reception, adding wedding flowers in shallow glasses or vases is a lovely idea. Choose a flower that will lay flat (think ranunculus or a daisy rather than a peony or rose) for the best results.

Rustic Details

For an outdoor wedding or a garden party, why not try something a bit rustic to complement your theme? Place flower heads in a bucket filled with water and use them as aisle decor.

Add a Mirror

If your wedding flowers are floating in water, add a mirror underneath the vase for reflection. This looks especially pretty if you have floating candles, too.

Nice Stems

Floating flowers don't have to be stemless! Check out this centerpiece which has blush roses "planted" into the bottom of the bowl.

Make it Glow

Simply adding a glow cube to your floating wedding flowers can make a huge difference! These little cubes are plastic and battery-operated. Turn them on and put them at the bottom of the vase for a truly beautiful display.

Initial It

Why not utilize a body of water to create a floral initial (your new last name is pretty significant, don't you think?) or write a message (LOVE, for example)? We adore the floating "L" made out of flowers in this swimming pool.
