Looking for a centerpiece that will add an elegant touch to your wedding? Think ostrich feather centerpieces. This adornment has become increasingly popular for weddings in recent years.

Here are some tips on how to make ostrich feather wedding centerpieces:

  • Know the different types of ostrich feathers to help you choose an optimum arrangement. Femina feathers consist of large plumes and are ideal for fuller displays. Drab feathers, in contrast, are small and fluffy. Floss feathers are the slimmest, with dark shades. Get a mixture of the different feathers in your arrangement to create a more interesting display.
  • Choose an Eiffel Tower vase or any long-necked vase, which best complements an ostrich feather arrangement to make a tall wedding centerpiece.
  • Ostrich feathers come in a wide range of colors – white, cream, pink, red, purple, to name a few. White is your ideal choice for creating a sophisticated air at the wedding.
  • Before placing your order for ostrich feather wedding centerpieces, you need to know the type of feather arrangement you want. Generally, the more feathers used in an arrangement, the most costly it will be.
  • On a tight budget and looking to create your own centerpieces? Start by buying the type of ostrich feathers you want. Get good quality ones which won’t get torn easily. Also get some Eiffel Tower vases and bouquet holders.
  • When assembling your arrangement, start by inserting the longest feathers into the bottom of the bouquet holder. Work your way up the bouquet holder, placing shorter ostrich feathers nearer the top and at the edges. The feathers should be displayed such that they fan out in the shape of a palm tree.
  • Be sure to assemble your feather centerpieces a few days before the reception as the feathers take time to set in and take shape.
  • Jazz up your ostrich feather centerpieces with lighting. Try adding floralytes, or wireless lights, to the vase to provide some beautiful illumination.

With the elegant and exotic air they exude, ostrich feather centerpieces for weddings are guaranteed to be attention grabbers and will certainly enhance the “wow” factor of your wedding.

When it comes to making a classy wedding, decorating is key. And one of the best decorative mediums in a classy setting is metal — whether black, silver, or gold, or etched, highlighting, or oiled. If you’re looking to forge a wedding full of class and high society, consider utilizing metal candle holders as part of your wedding centerpieces. Even if they aren’t the focal point, having a few around will give your wedding an air of richness. Weddings that are classy but have a more distinct theme can also get a lot out of these centerpiece touches!

Metal and candles compliment each other very nicely, especially when the candles are white and the candle holders black. If you are having a monochrome wedding, try purchasing some Spanish scroll wrought iron candle holders (for as low as $6 online) of various heights and arranging them as your entire centerpiece, using white candles to fill them.

What if you’re planning a classy natural wedding? Framed metal tree candle holders can form the backbone of your centerpieces, adding a natural feel. If you go with this option, consider placing some smaller candle holders around each “tree,” or sprinkle some real leaves or branches to emphasize the natural aspect.

Metal spiral candle holders make amazing centerpieces as well. These are the epitome of classy – similar in shape to a spiral staircase, only emphasized with glittering points of light. Your guests’ breath will be taken away when they step into a room filled with these spiral centerpieces crowning each tabletop.

Even more rustic weddings can benefit from metal candle holders. Purchase some rusty boxy holders and fill them with powerful candles, then dim all the lights. Place them close to the decorations (not so close they catch fire, of course), and let them do all the work of creating a homey atmosphere.
