Hi Bees, I am just finalising my flowers and have come to an issue…
Basically our number of guests has been reduced so now we will only be having 6 tables. I was orignally thinking there would be at least 8 but because of some family not being able to fly over to us the party is smaller. My issue is that I was always going to have a mixture of tall and low centrepieces. The tall will be very tall glass vases with my flowers (a mixture of lots of different types of pale and dusky pink roses) and then some low, which would be a low to the table arrangement of the same flowers, with a candelabra in the middle, with some roses twisting up the stem of the candelabra.
We are getting married at a vineyard and the room is fairly big with a very high ceiling. the ceiling will be covered in ivy and intertwined with fairy lights and lanterns, so whilst 6 tables is not much when I factor in the top table, an escort table, a sweetie bar, a coffee table and also the dance floor, together with the ceiling decorations the room won’t look empty.
Around the room there will also be 4 wine barrels with candelabras on them (but without the flowers at the base, just a few up the stem).
So my question is…will a mixture of the tall and low centerpeices work when there will be so few of each? Im thinking I at least need to do 4 vases and 2 candelabras, but would it just look better to have the vases for the tables and the candelabras around the room?
Any thoughts/suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks Bees x
