I am meeting with two florists right now to determine which to hire, and it raises an interesting question, as each are taking a different approach. Which do you prefer to see, bees – floral/candle arrangements (more traditional) or a collection of rustic knickknacks (trendy right now)?
Ultimately either can represent the bride/groom well, I think, and I’m still in the proposal phase so I don’t have anything to reference. Just a general question!

@2BeeMrsE: I think the flowers and candles add such a romantic feel, which is why I like them the most.

@2BeeMrsE: I think both can be beautiful! We’re doing wire birdcages with flowers in the bottom and pillar candles inside.

@2BeeMrsE: I like pretty much anything so long as it looks put together and makes sense with the venue (and theme if there is one.) So look at a couple of designs with and without flowers before picking a design.

I’m in the middle of traditional, but not. It will be flowers and candles, but handmade flowers by me out of felt/fabric/yarn and candles in tea cups!

I like centrepieces that provide some interest at the table, something to talk about or even something to engage with other guests in doing. Some of my favourite centrepieces have been games, candy in vases with battery powered lights illuminating them from the inside out (also acted as a favour), and a paper crane tree.

@MrsVandykins: Those are super cute!

I selected other because although they have candles and flowers, it’s not in the normal way.
Here’s a pic of the rough arrangement without the rose petals that will be between the candles on the plate and scattered between the tea lights.

@TattedNYBride: That sounds really nice!

I prefer the more “alternative” centerpieces. I love flowers but get really bored with them at weddings.
