Today we’re all about wedding centerpieces. Out with the old and in with the new. It’s summer now! And summer weddings call for seasonal summer wedding decorations. We all know that putting together wedding centerpieces can be one of the most agonizing parts of planning the wedding reception. And that’s why Wedding Party wanted to lend a helping hand.

Flowers are always a good option, and a longtime classic, but we wanted to mix it up a little with some summertime vibes. So we brought you this list of our favorite wedding centerpieces for the summer that you haven’t thought of yet. We have everything from vegetables to birdcages. Still not convinced? Stay tuned for photos and inspiration galore.

Check out this list below of Wedding Party’s favorite ideas for summer wedding centerpieces and get to planning your fabulous wedding day!

1. Edible Arrangements: Fruits and Vegetables

Yep, you heard right. Fruits and vegetables and wedding centerpieces. If arranged correctly, fruits and veggies can serve as a fun, whimsical and very summery centerpiece. They’re especially good for outdoor or rustic weddings. And, bonus points, they smell good too.

2. Mason Jars

The mason jar is the latest and greatest trend to grace American homes this year. They can be used for just about anything from holding yesterday’s juice cleanse to standing in as today’s summer wedding centerpiece. Let them stand on their own, fill them with floating candles, or use them as a rustic vase to hold flowers. They can also be used for other kinds of decor. The choice is up to you!

5. Birdcages

I know what you’re thinking. Birdcages? This is your idea? You’ve got to be kidding me. But we’re not kidding you. We’re serious! A vintage style birdcage, if dressed up properly, can be sexy and romantic wedding centerpieces. If you still don’t trust us, we’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves and let you be the judge.

  1. We used all kinds of fruit and vegetables as decor for my wedding! The themes were bohemian, colorful and abundant- we had peppers, artichokes, pears, apples, pomegranates, grapes, etc. It was gorgeous!

    • That sounds gorgeous! We love the idea of using produce for decor — it’s so unique AND it probably saves you a lot of dough on flowers!
