They are completely unique and they aren't too tall, so your guests will be able to see the people on the other side of the table.

If you want to have DIY centerpieces for your wedding, then you might be wondering just how to make your own centerpieces and the best centerpiece tricks. We've got you covered with these helpful tips to make sure your DIY table centerpieces are the best they can possibly be.

Make sure your guests will be able to see each other no matter where they're sitting by using low centerpieces, topiaries, or candelabras. There's nothing more frustrating than trying to see around a giant bouquet to talk to someone.

Don't tempt fate and make your centerpieces sturdy. It's inevitable that someone will be clumsy and bump into the tables (especially if you have an open bar). Make sure they won't knock over if they're suddenly subjected to an intoxicated guest or a small child crawling under the tables.

If you want to save money and be sure that your centerpieces won't wilt between the ceremony and the start of the reception, you can use low maintenance plants like the succulents in the homemade centerpiece featured above.

Maintain the consistency of your overall theme. For instance, if you have a fall wedding, then a summer flower wouldn't be appropriate. Try something involving leaves, pinecones, and fall colors.

Have fun with your centerpieces! Ultimately, it's your day and the decorations should reflect your own personal style to make the day extra special.

This would be the best centerpiece ever. You can see who's sitting across the table, you don't have to worry about them wilting, they're adorable, AND they're probably way more affordable than flowers. Must make a note for my future wedding that will definitely happen sometime in the future.
