Choosing the right table centerpieces to decorate your wedding reception can be one of those unexpectedly tricky decisions.

To get around this (quite literally), we’ve found some sweet wooden boxes for wedding centerpieces and also some imaginative decorating ideas that are rustic, elegant, and fun.
Open your mind to these beautiful box possibilities!

We love this unique centerpiece idea, especially for shorter rectangular banquet tables or longer vineyard tables (and the handles are super-convenient for setup and takedown).
Each tray can hold wine bottles, small plates of appetizers, or candles. To finish off the look, decorate them with an LED garland and a sequined runner.

We love the fact that they’re clear, so your guests will still be able to see each other across the table, and you can repurpose the lights for seasonal decorating afterward.
