Many brides want to use orchids in their weddings as they are long lasting and very elegant but are put off by the prices they have to pay for this elegancy. In order to help orchid loving brides to make their dream come true at a tight budget, I have collected some inexpensive and simple DIY orchid wedding centerpiece designs for your inspirations.
A classic: Submergered orchid centerpieces with floating candles. The simplest and most common way to save on expensive flowers for weddings is to use the least of them. Submerged orchids with floating candles in a tall glass vase make a simple yet very elegant centerpiece. You only need to use 1-2 stems for each centerpiece. In the bottom of the vase you can use stones, rocks, water pearls or pearls to help secure the orchid stems.
Potted orchids make long-lasting centerpieces as after the wedding, you can bring them home and enjoy them in your balcony or backyard for months or even years to come. Small orchid pots can also be used as wedding favors for guests, so a 2-in-1 idea!
Short orchid stems in mason jar also makes an adorable centerpiece. These orchids in mason jar centerpieces might not be all suitable for a classy themed wedding but will be very lovely for an intimate wedding or dinner get-together. The white orchid, hydrangea in mason jar and tealight candles altogether create a very warm and intimate feeling.
Low centerpieces allow you to use small orchid stems or even single orchids so you only need 1-2 orchid stems for each centerpiece. You can fill the vase with rocks or water pearls to keep the flowers in place. Small square glass vases would give the centerpiece a modern and edgy look but you can use any small vases that you like or can find.
