And now…Centerpieces! Out of the 5 weddings I have planned on Pinterest, I have chosen my favorite centerpiece ideas. From candles and flowers to table numbers and colors, the centerpiece possibilities are endless! Thanks for making it that much more difficult Pinterest!
If I was getting married tomorrow, and let’s be honest, that’s far from true, I would have some trouble picking centerpieces. I don’t really want huge, bright, lush flowers on my tables. I want simple elegance for my centerpieces that give the room a very romantic feel. The linens, candles, floral arrangements, and table numbers should all make sense together. I absolutely love these flowers and vases. The flowers are very subtle in color and small enough that you can group several together at one table and still be able to talk to the people across from you.
I still want colorful flowers, but nothing too over the top. These are still soft in essence but add a subtle pop of color. I really like the three separate vases of flowers (I would prefer white or clear vases) on one table. It takes up space without being on giant floral arrangement. The table number is on the page of an old book, adding a vintage flair. As I mention a little further down, I like when table numbers are more than just a frame with a number. These are in cute stands that compliment the rest of the centerpiece.
My tastes have changed from wanting lush, large centerpieces (like the one below) to a more simple approach accented with awesome table numbers and candles. Don’t get me wrong, I love lush flowers but I’m not so sure I want that on my tables. Although this is gorgeous and fun with a modern twist, I personally want simplicity.
Candles are also essential to any wedding. Something so simple adds so much. They set the mood, and the more candles you have the more romantic the space feels. I love the spread on these tables. The long tables allow candles to be spread out across the entire table. I also really like how the event designer utilized different styles, heights and widths in the candle holders and vases. The soft colors in the flowers accent the soft glow from the candles. No one aspect stands out and takes over the table.
One final piece that will be important to my centerpieces is table numbers. There are many different routes brides can take in incorporating these on their tables. You can go with picture frames, wire stands, metal numbers, or something totally different. I want something that is fun and unique. I adore these easels I saw on theknot.com. They are fun and more than just a simple picture frame with a number inside.
For right now, this is the route I would take for my centerpieces. While my centerpieces may be soft and elegant, I want a very colorful bouquet that really shows off my personality. Ask me when I’m closer to getting married and my tastes may change some more. I would like to say thank you to Pinterest for opening my eyes to centerpiece options I had never dreamed of before and making it that much harder to pin down what exactly I like. J
