An important part of planning wedding flowers is to speak with a consultant florist who can advise you on your budget and help you plan your wedding reception floral centrepieces. Todich Floral Design will give you a free wedding flower consultation.
Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable: at the reception time is spent sitting together in groups, chatting, reminiscing and meeting new friends around a floral wedding centrepiece in the middle of the table. These can be simple fishbowl wedding centrepieces, or more complex bird cages wedding centrepieces, depending on the preferred style. As one of these is needed for each guest table at the reception, plus a more complex design for the top table, and perhaps some side tables, and bar or buffet the multiplication of cost can add up overall. It is important to choose carefully and get best value for money by looking for a supplier who will understand your requirements, your colour scheme and your theme. But looking for cheap wedding centrepieces or DIY wedding centrepieces could be a mistake. These wedding table centrepieces will be at the heart of all group photographs and be the background to many happy memories of the day!
One idea to save on the cost of the more spectacular wedding table centrepieces is to use a tall martini glass wedding centrepiece spreading wider above the guests' eye level so their conversation is not obstructed and to alternate these with low reception floral centrepieces, that a conversation can be carried on across, on every second table. These can be matching or contrasting in colour, as long as there is a common theme tying the centrepiece designs together. Guests can communicate without their vision being blocked by the wedding table centrepieces, and the variety adds to the beauty of the designs.
Wedding centrepiece ideas can be based around your decorative theme, whether contemporary, traditional, complex or simple, but the choice of wedding table centrepiece should reflect the personal style, and taste of the bride. Various accessories can allow you to focus on a range of details to create a look that is unique. With only a small amount of personalisation, the wedding centrepieces can be made part of the happy couple's shared history. Bird cage wedding centrepieces are currently very popular, as are vintage wedding centrepieces.
The choice of flower is, of course, dependent on the season of the year in which the event takes place but hydrangea wedding centrepieces are now more frequently seen. The advantage here is that one or two stems can be enough to fill a small vase with multiple flowers, and also that they reflect the current popularity of purple wedding.
Some couples like to add personal tags or labels to glass containers or boxes to highlight the significance of the date. Beautiful calligraphy can incorporate their first names and wedding date into a decorative keepsake card for a DIY wedding table centrepiece.
Candle centrepieces are incredibly versatile. As a base for a floral arrangement, candles can help complete a variety of unique wedding centrepieces by adding elegance and class, not to mention a soft romantic glow. Imagine the wedding reception hall lit by the soft flicker of candles on every table. It is also possible to buy custom printed candles or themed candelabras to personalise this idea. Some of these more expensive props, such as candelabras or birdcages, can be obtained as a wedding centrepiece hire, with only the flowers themselves being bought, and the candelabra wedding centrepieces themselves being returned after the event.
Whether the bride prefers a traditional or modern look for her reception wedding centrepieces there is a wide choice of wedding centrepieces for sale and for hire. The only advice is that the wedding planner should not feel restricted in their wedding table centrepiece ideas, but look around, checking the magazines and wedding fairs for inspiration. Consultation with an expert wedding florist at Todich Floral Design should allow some ideas to gel into a design for a truly memorable reception flower centrepiece.
