Deciding to use flowers for your centerpieces is another important aspect that you must take into account



Choose the Height of Your Centerpiece

Deciding to have tall or low height wedding centerpieces is not only a question of preference. A tall and heavily decorated centerpiece may look stunning in a picture but not suitable for your guest tables.

Likewise, a compact size centerpiece is not always the best option.

In fact, small table ornaments may not stand out when they are not well balanced or simply because they are too small for the table they are decorating.

Also, to have a well-balanced table decoration you must play with contrasting colors, transparency, and light reflection to create a global harmonious look.


Let Your Guests See Each Other

One important question to ask before you decide to buy a chandelier or tall vase to decorate the guest tables is this one: Will the guest be able to see each other?

As obvious as it may sound, I’ve seen many central table decorations that are put away by the guests themselves so they can see the person in front of them.

To avoid obstructing your guest’s view I suggest using a centerpiece that is 30 inches tall or more. Also, there shouldn’t be any accessories added to it below that height.

This way, your guest view won’t be blocked so they can enjoy both the good company at their table and an amazing looking centerpiece.

Also, it does provide enough see through compare to voluminous flower arrangements.

A gold chandelier can also work well although it may need to be positioned on some sort of pedestal to provide a clearer view.

When possible, try using a suspended chandelier like the one featured here. It’s an extraordinary and elegant way of decorating tables without taking the valuable tablespace.
