Creating the Perfect Wedding Centerpieces for your Reception

blog3When thinking about your wedding reception centerpieces there are many things to take into consideration.

  • Theme of your Wedding
  • Venue Location
  • Time of Year
  • Budget
  • Layout of Reception Area

At The Floral Gardens we love to play off your wedding theme. This is a great way to pull your vision together.

  • Seaside, Destination or Marina weddings you might want to think about adding some shells and sand inside tiny vases with bright fresh flowers in the middle.
  • Vineyard wedding add grapes to your centerpieces and candle holders made out of old wine bottles.

This year unusual wedding reception locations are very popular. If you have having a fall wedding in a barn try adding mason jars filled with wonderful blooms of dahlias and fall leaves. For the same location in the summer use bowls of lemons, limes with floating flowers inside. A lemon aid station close by would add to the experience.

There are many ways to stretch your wedding dollars and yet not give up your dream.

  • Reuse your church flowers at your reception.
  • Have two or three kinds of centerpieces on the tables, your reception will look more interesting and the smaller arrangements are more reasonable.
  • Tall ceilings at your venue, a few taller vases or candelabras will make the reception area feel grand yet not cost a fortune.
  • Most good florists will have inventory of items available for rent to make your dollars go further. At The Floral Gardens we have a list of rental items available on our web site.
  • dding candles both around your flowers and as a main focal point will add aboniounsce and make a smaller arrangement fill a larger table.

Venue Layout

  • Make sure that you have appropriate size arrangements for your table size. A bud vase on a six foot long table would look out of place.
  • Keep very tall arrangements out of the direct view of the bride and groom’s table. It is your special day, it is why all of your friends and family have come together and they don’ t want to miss a thing.

On your wedding day have you and your groom take a first peek of your reception before everyone else comes in. Take the time to enjoy all of the special things that you have done to make this wedding your own.
