There’s no doubt that tall centerpieces bring that “wow” factor to your reception. Your guests will be able to see each other from across the table which encourages conversation. Displays like this, though, may be a little pricier.

Can’t afford opulent centerpieces? Consider showcasing a large display on the head table with smaller replicas on guest tables. This creates a cohesive look that will satisfy your wallet.

The flickering flame of a candle adds a romantic touch to any centerpiece display. It’s cozy, welcoming environment is perfect for a winter wedding when it gets dark early.

 

 Tree or Branches

The tree is a huge trend that’s just started within the past few years. Because the branches seem to be lacking any leaves or sprouting buds, these centerpieces are reminiscent of winter where trees are bare but beautiful covered in fallen snow. This beauty is enhanced even further when using white branches. Using a tree as a centerpiece is a sure way to get conversations started between your guests, as they’re certainly an eye-catcher!

Though this trend is usually saved to be used as a table number reference – matching you or your fiance’s age in the picture to the number of the table – they can also make for great centerpieces. Find some antique and ornate frames and display your engagement photos at each table! It will open up the conversation with guests who may not know each other and will remind guests what they’re there to celebrate!
