Inspiration for Wedding Centerpieces

Wedding centerpieces are essential to theme and every table setting at your wedding. Each table throughout your venue will likely hold one or more wedding centerpieces. Your theme will make many decisions about the types of centerpieces you choose. An elegant setting might call for a tall sophisticated candelabra, while a country theme might demand a shorter floral arrangement in a simple vase. The almost endless possibilities with wedding centerpieces can make choosing the perfect table décor a challenge. These suggestions should help you choose the right wedding centerpieces for your fairy tale wedding.

Floral Wedding Centerpieces

Floral wedding centerpieces are almost an always. Regardless of whether you are using vases, baskets or adorning candelabras, you will accent with flowers that match the color and theme of the wedding. Flowers are the perfect accent pieces. Depending on the flower you choose, it can change the entire tone of the room. Imagine red roses in comparison to sunflowers. The two very different species offer a very different mood to the atmosphere. Red roses are sophisticated and romantic. They speak love in a serious tone. Sunflowers are happy country flowers. Choose a flower that suggests the mood you want to instill in the room.

There is an entire language to flowers. During the Victorian era, the meaning behind each flower was so powerful that it became a cryptic language for sending messages. Flowers might have always been known as a secret language of love. This cryptic language was referred to as Floriography. The language of flowers applies a symbolic meaning for every unique species, color and shade. Placed in a specific combination, the flowers create a complete intelligible sentence. Over time, we have chosen our wedding flowers for reason other than communicating a message, but the meaning behind them is absolutely timeless. Choose the flowers for your wedding centerpieces to convey your special meaning.

Candelabra Wedding Centerpieces

Candelabra wedding centerpieces are dramatic and elegant. They vary in height and style. A taller candelabra will provide a formal flair to the occasion. A metallic finish will offer that European elegance to the table. A tall crystal or transparent acrylic candelabra will infuse a classy modern tone to the atmosphere, and can provide the illusion of floating flowers. The height of your wedding centerpieces will determine the amplitude of your dramatic effect in the space. In a large ballroom with many tables, it can give the illusion of a canopy of flowers. Depending on the blooms you choose, it will change the mood of the entire room.

Using your theme as a guide, you can narrow down the variations of candelabra centerpieces. If you are considering a Paris theme, you can pull off the look with black candelabras with pink flowers to embellish the top. A roaring 20’s Gatsby theme can be created with gold and black candelabras topped with feathers and bejeweled with stringed pearls. Beauty and the Beast inspired themes can be created with gold candelabra wedding centerpieces with tall tapered candles. The theme will almost always control the style of the wedding centerpieces.

Decorating with Candles

Candle wedding centerpieces make romantic table settings. Candles are almost always used as an accent to larger pieces. Smaller candles can be placed in small jars or vases and scattered on the table around other arrangements. Candles make perfect wedding centerpieces when used to accent a bare manzanita tree by dangling votive holders from the branches. It provides the illusion of floating flames around the tree. Candles make good accents for wedding centerpieces, because they are available in various colors and sizes to match almost every theme.

Vase Wedding Centerpieces

Vase wedding centerpieces can change the style, mood and theme much like a candelabra does. Tall clear vases can be filled with water to float votive candles or filled with flowers to match theme. Vase wedding centerpieces are available in several dimensions to match the space and purpose. Vases can stand alone or be used to accent other table décor.
