If you’re a bride on a budget, one of the biggest ways to save a ton of cash is to get married during winter. Many wedding venues and vendors consider this time of year to be an off season, which means you can snag some great deals on your wedding.
The winter holiday season also presents a ton of inspiration for your wedding décor, making DIY decorations both budget-friendly and easy. By just making your own wedding centerpieces, you can easily save yourself hundreds—or maybe thousands—of dollars.
To help get the inspiration flowing, we’re sharing some of the best holiday wedding centerpieces we could find, including tips on how you can easily recreate them.
Wood Tone Vase + Baby’s Breath

The weathered faux bois look works perfectly for winter wedding centerpieces, and our Weathered Oak Pot can help you easily achieve this look. Baby’s breath is a very inexpensive flower choice for this centerpiece, but any white flower will help you reach a similar style. Add an accent ribbon around the center of the pot to complement your wedding colors and surround with tealight candles for a warm, romantic glow.
Lantern and Evergreen Wreath

Lanterns centered within simple evergreen wreaths create elegant and seasonal winter wedding centerpieces. Simply find wreaths (either real or faux) that fit around lanterns, such as our Wire Lantern. Tuck red roses and pine cones on floral picks into the wreath for extra seasonal flair.
Trio of Pinecones
Who knew a simple trio of pinecones could create such an elegant wedding centerpiece? To get this look, simply prop three pinecones (foraged or store-bought) on appropriately sized vases. Our Slender Pyramid Vase, Large Posie Vase and Brandy Vase all have narrow openings, perfect for holding pinecones. Mix and match these three vases to add more dimension to the overall look.
Geometric Terrariums and Eucalyptus
By simply placing eucalyptus leaves and twinkle lights inside geometric terrariums, you can easily create elevated wedding centerpieces for your big day on a dime. Nestle the filled geometric terrariums within stems of eucalyptus and place it all on linen table runners for an elegant look. We carry four shapes of Geometric Terrariums, perfect for mixing and matching on your tabletops.

For truly easy-peasy wedding centerpieces that embrace seasonal colors and flavors, simply pour a bed of cranberries into a mix of vases and add simple white candles. If you love the simplicity of the square vases in the photo, then check out our Square Vase, which comes in three sizes.
Glass Cloche Fairy Lights
This DIY wedding centerpiece may be easy to create, but the romantic warm glow it will cast at your wedding reception will have a definite wow factor. To recreate this look, simply crumple a strand of warm white battery-operated fairy lights into the dome of our Glass Cloche.
