ok..so ever since i booked the venue, i’ve only had the tall centerpieces in mind. i didn’t even give the short ones a thought. but the more i think about it, the more i like the intimacy of the lower centerpieces as well. so i was thinking, tall or low for my venue? or should i go half and half and do both?

I just love high centerpieces, I think it gives such drama to the room…I guess that is what you have to ask yourself- either way will be pretty- but do you want more drama? Or do you want that more intimate feel?
Personally, I’d go for the high because it’s a little different.

We chose low center pieces because we hate sitting at a table with centerpieces that prevent you from seeing/talking to the people on the other side. But I’ve been to weddings with a mix of high and low and it always looks very pretty. It’s just not that functional

is your venue similar to this?? my venue has chandeliers and lighting at every table so tall centerpieces would clash from the drama of the room.
i prefer shorter ones so you can actually see the person accross from you. .
we’re doing lots of moss, with books, and terrarium jars on top of the book. also doing bird cages and lanters.

@spoonoutmyheart: my venue is pretty intimate. it has windows all over the place but isn’t that big. i wanted to add a little height to the tables with the high centerpieces…but like canambride said, i don’t want people to be sitting there rubber necking around the tall centerpieces either…

@CanAmBride: I love tall centerpieces, but I always notice this at weddings too. If it’s too tall and it blocks your view of people across the table, they can get in the way!
I like a mix of high and low, too, because it adds some variety. Depending on what your budget is, that can also be a way to save on centerpieces because the taller ones can be more expensive.

I personally want to be able to see around the table so prefer short centerpieces, but tall centerpieces look elegant in large rooms (weddings of 100+) and formal settings. If you’re having a small wedding and/or informal wedding, I’d go with a shorter centerpiece. I wouldn’t recommend both unless they are on the same table. Having tall centerpieces on some tables and small on others just makes the eyes wander up and down too much.

I like the look of 50/50 tall and short 🙂

i’m doing half and half. low centerpieces are usually cheaper, so that’s a nice bonus!
