As your guests walk into your wedding reception, you want to make an impact with the overall look of the room and a big part of this will be how you decorate your wedding reception tables.
To help inspire you, we’ve put together 50 amazing DIY wedding centrepiece ideas for brilliant and unusual reception tables — and the best bit is, you can easily make or put together every single one of them yourself.
If you want to create your own DIY centrepiece using flowers then think about when you want to make them. If you are using fresh flowers then you really want to be putting things together the night before the wedding and if you want to minimise your costs then consider using dried or silk flowers. Alternatively you might want to use flowers from your own garden.

Cheap DIY Wedding Centrepieces
Are you trying to stick to a serious budget? Then use some of our most cost effective wedding centrepiece ideas. The trick is using something you already have or will have for the wedding – such as drinks or used jam jars.
Technically all your DIY centrepieces are homemade but if you want to add a personal touch then giving away samples of homemade jam, honey or cakes you have baked yourself would be a lovely finishing touch.
If you are making your own centrepieces then rustic is a perfect theme (because if you make a mistake or have an inconsistency you can say it’s part of the rustic vibe!). Start browsing some of our favourite rustic centrepiece ideas – ideal for a woodland wedding.
