I will have 38 round guest tables to decorate at our reception. How many different centerpieces can I do? I was thinking some tall, some mid-height, some short?? Is three styles too many if they all coordinate? Or, can I have more? Can I vary the flowers of the mid-height or short centerpieces to incorporate different shades of our wedding color?!

I’m having 3 different styles and I only have about 14 tables. I would do tall, medium, and short. Taller on the outside, medium towards the center, and smallest in the middle. You could do slight variations of each style – slightly different designs, definitely different colors!

We had 20 tables in 3 different sizes and had about 10 different looking centerpieces. I wish I had stuck to 3 styles only. I made it hard on the people who were setting up.

I just saw a bride do 3 styles on Platinum Weddings (I still don’t know why I watch that show! Anyway…), it looked great! She did some tall, some short and some mid-length. But be careful with the mid-length ones, you want your guests to be able to see the other people across the table. I don’t think they had as many tables as you are but that doesn’t matter. I love the idea. I think beyond 3 would be too much so I’d stick with that. And definitely make sure they tie together somehow. Like maybe incorporate a kind of flower in each, or just stick with a color and do different flowers in variations of that color.

Almost every one of my centerpieces will be different since I am using different rustic containers for them – a mix of mason jars, milk cans etc. I am using the same flowers in them all so they tie together. I’m not being specific about what goes where with the exception of the wedding party tables, so it shouldn’t create any more work for the staff.

i’m having all different centerpieces too, sounds like it will be kind of like ladyox. we have different antique pitchers and containers that we’re filling with the same type of flower.
