Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Centrepieces

If you’re planning your wedding right now, you may be trying to organise what goes where, the colour scheme, the bridesmaid’s dresses, and basically going a bit mad with all the craziness! It’s a perfect time to sit back and relax for a moment and read our post this week on choosing the perfect wedding centrepieces.

Wedding centrepieces should be unique and memorable

The wedding reception is perhaps the most important event after your wedding. It’s the anticipated celebration after your nuptials where you’ll really celebrate your wedding with friends and family. There’ll be food and entertainment and of course, the décor plays a big part too. It really sets the stage for the entire proceedings, and helps add a unique and original touch to your reception. All of it, from the linen, flowers and table settings to the colour scheme itself will be remembered – and you want that to be for the right reasons.

One of the most worrying aspects of the wedding reception is the wedding centrepiece

This could be the one thing that people take the most notice of, because while they’re at the wedding reception they’ll be spending the majority of their time around the table, eating, drinking and socialising.

Let people see your personality shine through

Table centrepieces can really help to create an atmosphere and an opportunity for people to see the couple’s personality in the décor and the reception area. They don’t always have to be flowers either, they can be fruit baskets or cupcakes, so don’t let your imagination let you down, do what feels right for you.


What do you need to consider when deciding on a wedding centrepiece?


Naturally, you’ll need to think about your budget because this will determine what you can afford to spend. You’ll need to decide how much money there is to invest in each centrepiece and go from there. Think about how many guests will be seated at each table as well as the top one. You don’t want something too lavish that more or less takes over the table so guests can’t see each other.

Check and arrange when to set up

Always check with the hotel venue where you’re having the reception about your wedding centrepieces so they’re happy with it, and that you’re not using something that’s not compatible with health and safety regulations. It sounds boring I know, but it could be that what you’ve chosen isn’t fireproof, or that you’re using glass that could break easily and hurt someone. Make sure you check it all out first before finally deciding on your final wedding centrepieces. You’ll also need to arrange final set-up times with the owners/managers of the venue for your wedding centrepiece so it all goes smoothly and isn’t left until the last minute.
