17 Glowing Wedding Centerpieces With Lights

Let there be light!

On your wedding day, it’s time to let your light shine, and we have some decorating ideas that will get your wedding centerpieces glowing!

At outdoor weddings, it’s best if there’s an easy way to transition your lighting from daytime to nighttime. If your reception is indoors, you may want to choose how brightly lit your tables are.

Or, maybe, you’ve heard about the coolest way of decorating tables at your reception, which is (drumroll, please) wedding centerpieces with lights!

Let’s shine our light and reveal these great centerpiece ideas.

Silver Copper String Lights

Silver Copper String Lights Battery Operated

Delicate and bright, these silver copper fairy lights resemble the whimsical twinkling of stars in the night sky.

This 32 ft silver copper string of 100 warm white LED lights can be the starting point for any lighted centerpiece for your wedding.

It’s easy to see why this item is a bestseller because they look like tiny, delicate, twinkling stars that remain cool to the touch.

In addition, the silver-copper string is durable and completely bendable, so you can shape, hang, or fix each string in countless ways.

Of course, the lights are available in basic white too, but we prefer the natural-looking glow of warm white for ceremonies and receptions.

Waterproof Lighting for Wedding Centerpieces

Waterproof Box 100 Lights per Strand Remote Controlled

These warm white LEDs enhance the look of almost any place around your home, dorm room, or office. The delicate wire adds a nice touch to your decorations.

These battery-operated LED lights are waterproof, and they come with a handy remote.

So at an outdoor reception, you’ll look like a magician when twilight hits because you can control every set of LED lights in your wedding centerpieces with a single remote.

Super-cool and convenient! Perfect for floral centerpieces in a vase of water,  you won’t have to worry about a real candle tipping over or a breeze blowing out the flame.

Geometric Terrarium Wedding Centerpieces with Lights

Glass Geometric wedding Table Decor

Gorgeous hexagonal / triangular / cube terrariums with gold or black trim! These are perfect for airplants, succulents, table top decor or as a standalone piece!

While a terrarium usually houses indoor plants, these stylized glass terrariums (with black, gold, or our favorite: rose gold trim) are perfect wedding centerpieces to hold dried flowers and fairy lights.

Another great idea is a beach wedding centerpiece containing LED lights, sand, shells, and starfish accents.

A Wedding Wreath for All Seasons

Eucalyptus Table Wreath Artificial Eucalyptus Garland

Realistic looking silk eucalyptus table wreath. Perfect wedding table centerpiece.

A faux eucalyptus wreath that looks simple, lush, and natural is the perfect base for your lighted wedding centerpieces. These wreaths work well with clear vases and LED tea lights or mason jars with fairy lights. 

Up and Away With an LED Balloon Centerpiece

Clear Balloons for Table Tops All Inclusive

The product was designed specifically for dining table décor and as a more cost effective, convenient alternative to helium balloons. 

Balloon centerpieces have always been popular at parties, and this lighted balloon centerpiece is next level!

Clear balloons on a stationary plastic stem get wedding-worthy after wrapping them up in shiny LED lights. It’s cost-effective, and it creates a simple but stunning look for your wedding reception.

Wedding Centerpieces With Confetti Balloon Lights

Light up Balloon Lights Confetti

Packed in protective foil thermal bag to ensure long life in storage.

We certainly aren’t knocking the gorgeousness of LED fairy lights on strings, but for a really unique spin for your lighted wedding centerpieces, we present individual confetti balloons!

These confetti lights are a fab way to fill clear jars or bottles, and each tiny balloon works for up to twelve hours after you pull the tab. 

Floating White Pearls

Floating White Pearls With Sparkling Gems

Elegant with a magical twist vase fillers and table scatters for wedding decorations, graduations.

Your guests will be in awe of these floating white pearls! Totally on-trend, these stunning accessories come in 3 different sizes and can be used as fillers in your centerpieces.

We like that you can prepare them before your wedding, and best of all, they’re budget-friendly.

A Golden Trumpet Centerpiece

Gold Trumpet Metal Tall Centerpiece Stand

The stands are sold at a minimum of 2 pieces.

This trumpet-shaped base comes in a 32-inch or 40-inch height to create a lofty centerpiece. You can choose a gold-tone, silver-tone, or “French gold” base (we like the sound of that).

Although it doesn’t come with lighting, the height provides ample space for simple LED votives underneath and around the base.

You could also get creative and string fairy lights or lit garlands around this centerpiece, or crown the top with a bouquet of LED balloons…  Endless possibilities with this beautiful trumpet base!

Rustic Wood Lantern Base

Wood Lantern Centerpieces for Wedding Lantern Centerpiece

Perfect for fireplace, coffee table, kitchen counters, window sills, mantel, and other corners of your home and office space.

Sometimes simplicity is all you need! We love this rustic wood lantern base that is available in chestnut, amber, charcoal, or smoke-colored stain.

You can place an LED pillar candle in the base and accent it with dried floors for an elegant centerpiece at your outdoor wedding.

Metal Hoop Wreath

Arch Wedding Centerpiece Metal Hoop

Adorn your tabletops and create most magical centerpieces with these lovely lightweight metal hoop stands. 

A basic gold-tone hoop might require quick assembly, but it’s an affordable DIY option to create the wedding centerpiece of your dreams.

We love the idea of wrapping these hoops in LED garlands with dried flower accents fixed to the base.

Burlap and Lace Mason Jar Sleeves 

Wedding Burlap Mason Jar Sleeves

Hese are the perfect addition to any Rustic Wedding, bridal shower or baby shower! These Sleeves make a very unique Wedding Centerpiece or simply use as table decor!

If you’d like to use mason jars with lights to create your wedding centerpieces, you can count on these unique, shabby-chic mason jar sleeves.

Each sleeve is handmade with burlap, lace, and twine, AND some have pearly accents. To finish off the look, fill the jars with LED balloon confetti and a pretty little sunflower flower arrangement!

Hanging Wedding Lights 

These glass globes are lightweight and easily hang from the ceiling or create individual centerpieces at your wedding reception.

They’ll look perfect holding an LED tealight, or hanging on a trumpet base or a hoop base as your lighted wedding centerpiece. Available in 24, 60, or 96 pieces, you can order the orbs with or without side holes.

Bring On the Rose Gold Candle Holders

Rose Gold Candle Holders Speckled

These are absolutely beautiful & each order includes a 18 Pack / Case / Set of Gold Mercury Glass Votive(s).

Quick disclaimer: we’ve got a bit of a crush on anything rose gold when it comes to engagements and weddings! That’s why these shot glass LED candle holders caught our eye.

They’re affordable and easy to place as accent pieces around centerpieces on your reception tables. If you’re not mad about the rose gold, you have a choice of gold, silver, or aqua blue candle holders.

We also love that this seller (at the time of this writing) provides complimentary LED tea lights to purchasers. A thoughtful gesture that everyone can appreciate.

Lighted Centerpieces With Crochet Balls

Wedding Table Centerpieces

The crochet candle holders are wonderful handmade products hand-crocheted of cotton thread.

As if we needed another reason to love LED lighting, we find these little crochet balls (sold in sets of 5) in a range of colors and even two options on how to display them (open at the top or enclosed around a flameless votive candle). So simple, but oh so effective.

Flameless Candles

Set of 6-flameless Timer LED Flickering Candle

Ivory Glowing LED Flameless Candles in a variety of sizes with Realistic Look. Each casting a luminescent yellow glow like real candles. 

First off, we love this set of 6 flameless ivory candles of varying heights, with a “dripped wax” effect that looks so authentic.

These candles will dress up a wooden tray or a mirrored placemat as a wedding centerpiece. Or, if you really want to take things up a notch, why not wrap strings of fairy lights around the base for an extra glowy effect? 

Lighted Wine Bottles 

Light up Wine Bottles Decorative

Fun, festive, and frosted! These light up wine bottles are sure to be the perfect gift this holiday season- I should know!

What a great idea if you’re having a seasonal wedding! Frosted, lighted wine bottles decorated with cute and festive sayings will adorn your wedding centerpieces with chic elegance.

The cork contains the on/off battery pack, and you can gift these bottles later or reuse them for perfect holiday decorations.

Table Runners With Lights

Christmas Table Runner With Lights

This unique design lighted table runner with color-changing string lights is high quality and handmade. Add fun and brilliance to your dining table.

Here’s a fun effect for added glow on your reception tables⁠—long, lacy natural jute-burlap table runners with LED lights.

These runners come with timers and 16 color options, including flashing modes for the party afterward. A fun idea to go along with your lighted centerpieces!
