Are you planning your wedding reception, and are you wondering how to add the wow-factor to the room? Of course you would like all your guests to be impressed, and you are looking how to decorate the tables for your reception. There are many different types of wedding centerpieces to choose from, and here are some ideas.
The table centerpiece is essentially the main decorative piece of the reception. It is the most repetitive decoration at the reception as they are placed on every table. To find ideas on different types of wedding centerpieces it can be helpful to research wedding books, internet searches and consult ting with your wedding planner.
There are many companies offering ready-made wedding centerpieces to be delivered on the day of your wedding. They will be just as you want them to be if you have planned the design well with the makers, but they are likely to come at a price.
Traditionally centerpieces are most likely to be floral, but the possibilities are endless, with or without flowers. It could be a simple vase with flowers that match your wedding bouquet, or something more complicated like a towering centerpiece with vases, flowers, candles, and mirrors.
It is a really nice idea to have one really big display, maybe on your own table or close to where you will be seated yourself, with matching smaller pieces on the tables. This will look very sophisticated and well thought out. You can have certain flowers repeated, or work with colors that come back in the table decorations. Table centerpieces in the same shape as the wedding centerpiece are also a delight to look at.
If you have to work on a budget, you could consider making the wedding centerpiece yourself. There are difficult choices to be made, and you will be able to find so many ideas that it will be incredibly difficult to choose what you prefer. The best places to look for ideas are in wedding magazines and on the internet, but you can also ask your friends and family for ideas.
Unless your wedding centerpiece is completely floral, you don’t have to leave it until the last minute on your wedding day. You can prepare the best part well in advance, and quickly finish it off with fresh flowers on the big day if you wish.
You may decide that you want to forgo the flowers and create a less traditional centerpiece. Balloons in your wedding colors can be festive at the tables or a beautiful mirror covered in tea lights and small flowers is lovely as well. Or you could place small chocolate candy bars with your names on them as treats for your guests. The options are endless. You can really get creative. One popular idea is to leave disposable cameras at the center of the table. This allows guest to take photos for you on your big day.
Whatever you choose, remember that planning the wedding centerpiece should be fun. It’s a great way to create a theme that will tie the whole reception together. There’s no limit on what you can do, only what you choose using your imagination. Use this time to express yourself on your big day.
