These arrangement ideas may be easy enough to re-create on your own, but they’re pretty enough to look like you didn’t do them yourself.

This is an especially great choice when you want another part of the reception to be the main attraction. Of course, simple doesn’t automatically mean subdued—sometimes the most stunning displays are those that do the most with the least.

Minimalist décor is popular at modern weddings, and simple centerpieces can be a nice alternative to lush, overflowing blooms. Another great reason to go with less complex arrangements is if you want to make them on your own.
