Tips and Ideas for Wedding Centerpieces

Wedding centerpieces are intrinsic to your wedding theme. Every guest table at your wedding reception will have one or more wedding centerpieces to carry your theme throughout the wedding venue. The almost endless possibilities with theme and décor can make selecting the perfect wedding centerpieces a bit challenging. This guide to wedding centerpieces will make planning your dream wedding a little easier.

Floral Wedding Centerpieces

Floral wedding centerpieces usually make the list for obvious reasons. Flowers can be used alone for a simple setting or combined with vases and candelabras to add something more to the theme. Floral wedding centerpieces are almost always combined with other table décor. The first step to choosing flowers is to decide on your color palette, which is usually related to theme. Using your theme as a guide will also help you select the right flowers. For example, if you are planning a Cinderella inspired wedding, you will likely choose blue calla lilies or blue roses. Flowers can easily be incorporated with other elements of your theme.

Candelabra Wedding Centerpieces

Candelabra wedding centerpieces are a way to make a dramatic effect with elegance, depending on the height and style of your candelabra. Using theme can guide you through the process of choosing from a variety of candelabra wedding centerpieces. A Paris theme might call for tall black candelabra with pink flowers embellishing the top. A roaring 20’s Gatsby theme with a jazz era statement can be won over with a combination of gold candelabras and black candelabras that are topped with feathers and bejeweled with stringed pearls. Beauty and the Beast inspired themes will favor gold candelabra wedding centerpieces with tall tapered candles. The theme will always control the style of the centerpiece.

The Magic of Candles

Candle wedding centerpieces add a touch of romance to the table setting. Candles are rarely used alone, and they almost always provide an accent to a larger piece. This is observed by the tapered candle in the candelabra or a floating votive in a decorative glass vase. Incorporating a bare manzanita tree with dangling votive holders will provide the illusion of floating flames around the centerpieces during an evening wedding party.
