Designing with Wedding Centerpieces

Setting the tables in your wedding venue is part of the design. Wedding centerpieces are one of the most important design elements of the reception area. Deciding between a candelabra and a lantern is not always an easy decision. If you are wondering whether to have a towering centerpiece or a low-lying floral runner with small accents, you are not alone. We are sharing a few tips for designing with wedding centerpieces.


Wedding Centerpieces for the Season


Let the season influence your wedding centerpieces and other designs. When we think of fall, we imagine sunflowers and pumpkin patches. If you want to create a fall look with elegant décor, consider a mosaic candelabra with a reflective gold finish. Drape it with fall leaves, lots of burgundy, green and naked vines. Use deep colors that contrast gold tones and burnt orange. Do not be afraid to incorporate greenery into the mix. Experiment with texture. Incorporate the rustic element of spring or fall with small buckets arranged within the floral table décor. The best way to bring your season to the table is with the blooms you add to your wedding centerpieces. Keep in mind that the season does not need to control your wedding theme. A little creativity and imagination can bring any theme to life.

Creating the Theme


Envision whimsical and romantic wedding themes that tell your love story. Think of ways to create the experience with the cuisine, entertainment, cake, décor, wedding favors, invitations and wedding centerpieces. Whether you are looking for obvious or subtle, make it personal and keep it significant to your relationship. This is your theme. Think about the concept in a way that has never been done before. Booking an all-inclusive wedding venue that includes the furnishings, designs and professional wedding designers can save you thousands in the process of creating your theme.

Design with Flowers


Flowers seem to be part of every wedding. They add color and life to the romantic event. Regardless of the type of wedding centerpieces you choose, you will likely choose wedding flowers to accent your table décor and fill the wedding venue. Flowers are romantic and expressive. They provide a certain energy to the room and define your space. Depending on the flowers you choose to accent your wedding centerpieces, it can change the entire tone of the room.


Wedding Centerpieces Set the Tone


Your wedding centerpieces will set the tone within your venue. If you seek the rustic look, bring the outdoors in. Flickering candles with melted wax, wood slices for charger plates, oversized floral arrangements with lots of greenery and whitewashed wood can pull off the theme perfectly. Lanterns are perfect choices for rustic wedding centerpieces. They can be surrounded by flowers, logs of wood or exist alone. Choose clear acrylic, glass or a metallic finish to create an elegant look.


Accenting Wedding Centerpieces


Candles and small floral arrangements are perfect accents to wedding centerpieces. Make a romantic statement with scattered jars filled with flickering candles. Candles are versatile wedding centerpieces that create a dramatic effect, and compliment almost any décor and every theme. Candles are available in a variety of colors. This creates an additional opportunity to bring your wedding colors to the space. Use unscented candles on the tables where food will be served, and get creative with the design.
