The season of the year can often guide you in choosing the right centerpiece.
For instance, if your wedding is in the spring of the year, you could have a floral wreath at the center of each table.
A summer wedding centerpiece might include flowers in bright colors or an elegant bowl full of citrus fruit.
Autumn brides might choose pumpkins and fall leaves as the focal point for her table decorations.
Winter brides can use small Christmas trees, vases of holly berries or a large bowl of beautiful glass ornaments for their tables. Some couples like to keep their table decor very simple. A uncomplicated and elegant centerpiece can consist of a beautiful vase or vessel filled with freshly cut flowers. Another simplistic, but elegant centerpiece is a cluster of votive candles. Scatter flower petals, river rocks or leaves around the centerpiece to add some color to the table.
Other couples might choose to go with an elaborate or unique wedding table centerpieces. If the bridal couple loves to read, a stack of beautiful vintage books can make a great centerpiece. Framed photos of the couple can also be incorporated into table decor. Bird cages filled with flowers and electric candles, small lanterns and mirrors can also be used.
Keep in mind that guests will want to converse with each other and having a large and bulky centerpiece might not be conducive to conversation. A low profile centerpiece is an easy way to help guests maintain eye-contact with the other people at their table. If you want to have a large centerpiece at each table, consider using a tall vase of flowers.
If the vase has a slim profile, guests will be able to see each other from across the table. Make sure that the flowers coming out of the vase don’t infringe of guests’ eye contact.
