But, there’s much more to consider! From trendy details to composition, there are centerpiece trends you’ll want to be aware of as you’re planning the décor for your big day. Hopefully this list of 2022 wedding centerpiece decorations and trends gives you some great ideas to get you started on creating stunning centerpieces of your own!
Multiple Centerpieces Hanging Over a Long Reception Table: Wedding Wire
Hanging centerpieces were popular in 2021, and they will continue to be among the most popular 2022 wedding trends.
Hanging floral chandeliers are a stunning way to decorate when they are hung directly over the top of the table. From wire racks to round molds and even floral test tube chandeliers, there are many ways to display flowers above the table.
Air plants can be displayed inside hanging terrariums and you can hang candles inside hanging tealight holders, while combinations of rattan lanterns, whether lighted or not, can look stunning hung from the ceiling.
Small Reception Centerpiece With Dried Florals and Roses: Array Design
Dried florals are having a real moment in weddings. In 2020 and 2021, they were mostly relegated to boho weddings, desert weddings, and eco-conscious celebrations. In 2022, they are going to hit the mainstream, which means you’ll see a wide variety of dried floral arrangements on tables at farm weddings, garden weddings, and beach weddings in the spring, summer, fall, and winter.
Pampas grass is a favorite bridal dried floral, but there are lots of dried flowers to choose from like:
- Palm leaves
- Baby's breath
- Pussy willow
Mix dried flowers with living flowers, or use all-dried stems in your centerpieces. Because they catch fire easily, this is a good decorating option for brides and grooms who are looking for wedding centerpieces without candles.
Reception Table Setting Featuring an Acrylic Table Number: Rocket Science Events
Acrylic details have been popular for a few years, and they will continue to be among 2022 wedding centerpiece decoration trends. It’s relatively easy to incorporate acrylic through the use of signs, but how do you incorporate acrylic on the table?
Use clear acrylic sheets to print menus for the table, use clear acrylic tabletop easels to display artwork, quotes, or table numbers, and fill plastic favor boxes with rose petals. You can also use acrylic boxes as stands to display small floral arrangements.
Table Centerpiece Featuring Gold, Silver, and Rose Gold Details: Southbound Bride
One of our favorite 2022 wedding trends is mixed metallics. It means you no longer have to stick with one metal when decorating your reception tables!
Set the table with traditional silverware, use gold charger plates, and decorate the table with brass candelabras. It will give your table a modern, eclectic look. Not to mention, finding decorative details for the table is much easier when any kind of metal will do!
Table Setting Decorated With Potted Succulents: I Spy DIY
Sustainable details will continue to be important at weddings, but how they appear on the table will be creative. Instead of using things like glass candle holders because they can be donated or reused, tabletop items will serve a purpose at the wedding and immediately after. For example, bud vases can be taken home by guests, while things like potted ferns not only double as favors, they purify the air during your nuptials.
If you like the idea of wedding centerpieces without flowers, consider edible centerpieces or decorate the table with flea market finds.
Mini Floral Arrangements Featuring Lavender Flowers: Style Me Pretty
Weddings with a scent story are an under-the-radar way to make your 2022 wedding special. On the table, the obvious answer is to use scented candles. For example, create wedding centerpieces out of greenery and candles in your favorite scent to give your reception a personalized touch.
It might also mean choosing your flowers based on how they smell instead of how they look, or using dried elements, like lavender, potpourri, or sage in your centerpieces.

Centerpieces That Are Styled Differently
Should all wedding centerpieces be the same? In 2022, the answer is “No!”
Centerpieces no longer have to follow the same rules on every table. Instead, brides and grooms are creating slightly different centerpieces for each table. The trick is to choose centerpieces with the same elements, just styled differently. For example, you might choose the same blooms, but arrange them differently. You might place different flavored mini cakes on each table to encourage mingling, or you might use the same flower arrangement in different vessels on every table.
Weddings are a unique expression of the bride and groom. Looking at 2022 wedding trends is a great way to get inspired. With these centerpiece ideas, you can create an on-trend, one-of-a-kind look at your reception.
