Hi all! We are having a rustic themed wedding in a barn and to make things a bit more fancy I’m thinking of high centrepieces but my florist suggested some high and some low… Curious to see what other people are doing??200 days to go! Lol
We are having lanterns with flowers and fairy lights- nothing too high so guest can see over them. I am thinking on the other tables such as the sweet table and memory table we will have the same type of centrepiece just taller....
I'm doing both. Both the sweet heart table & the bridal party table will have a flower runner with vintage candle holders/tea lights. And the guest tables will have high centerpieces (vintage candelabra) with candles/tea lights/flowers.
Our centerpieces are fairly high but I tried to keep them from taking up too much of the table. We opted for family style dinner so things will be passed around the table. It is the beaded mat under the tall vase and I bought some tealight holders from dollar store to put LED lights into (not allowed any flame candles at venue). I'm not having the flower inside but may do a flowerball on top or I may not. Still deciding how much work I want to do. It is about 18" tall if I add flowers to the top it would be closer to 24" I'm thinking
Hey Kate. We have decided to do low centerpieces. We are doing very simple centerpieces of just a mini lantern with a single sunflower in a little glass sitting on a log cookie. We didn't want something that would be in the way of our guests visually.
I personally like low ones because they don't get in the way during dinner service. Even without the consideration for taking to each other at the table, it's always a pain trying to get the bread basket, the condiments, or wine bottle when there's a huge thing in the middle. And with a rustic theme, I personally like the look of low ones.
I love the style and look of high centrepieces! But after talking with our decor rental coordinator we decided on low centrepieces. so that guests can see each other and talk. She said once you start adding a bunch of stuff to long tables there isn’t a lot of room and it becomes too much! she said that with round tables it’s better to add more to them to take up the dead space!

Oh awesome! I’m hoping we’ll be good Covid wise by then since numbers seem to be a lot better in the summer and not as many restrictions. That looks lovely!! This is the kinda look I’m going for. We can’t have real candles so I have led ones and got these table numbers
I would do a combination. I think the variety will look fantastic! There's lots of options to make sure people can still see around them. The tall ones really just need to be above seated head height. Just browsed quickly and love variations of this (I'd leave the inside of the wood one empty)
