Centerpieces – Small


If your reception space has a lot of detail like ours, like say a multi-million dollar chandelier like ours, or a lot of color like elaborate ballrooms, you may want to tone down the centerpieces. I wanted the chandeliers and side lights to be the focus and our guests to be able to see one another and talk without flowers in the way or hovering over them. But that was just my preference. Some brides choose smaller centerpieces because they have 10-12 people at a table and need room. But don't be fooled, having smaller centerpieces does not always mean they will be cheaper. Often times when you are working with a florist, you rent the vases, regardless of what size. They reuse them. When I was looking into the larger cylindrical centerpieces with the orchids submerged in water, they were actually cheaper than the smaller "mound" and candle centerpieces because they used fewer orchids. The smaller mound type used more flowers – orchids and roses- and therefore cost more.
When it comes to design, I think your centerpieces need to reflect the style of your wedding. If your theme is romantic, you may want to use a lot of roses, if your theme is contemporary romantic, you may want to use more orchids or tulips, if your theme is more casual, you may want to use hydrangeas or gerber daisies. Make sure the centerpieces flow with other aspects of the wedding, such as bouquets, dresses, boutonnieres,etc.
Centerpieces do not have to be large, by any means. A very tight and vibrant small centerpiece can make a statement as well.
