I like tall and shortbut i think more than two different is too much. Just make sure its cohesive! 🙂

 I am doing the same for all guests (aside from the tiny candle volitves may vary slightly ) on every table with slightly taller and more elaborate of the same thing on honor tables

It depends on the style you are going for.  if you want a more vintage style or rustic I think it is nice to have several different styles.  If your wedding is traditional ball I would do all the same.

heatherdanyel:  All the options sound great. I ended up choosing all tall centerpieces and they all look the same except some have orchids cascading and others don’t. 

Whatever option you choose will look great.

We’re having elements and flowers that repeat on each table but the floral holders are all different. I think it works well with our mismatched vintage garden party theme.

I had rectangular tables and they all had moss table runners with tin lanterns and flowers in tin buckets, but every other table had little shells/beach finds or uncut small gemstones (fishtank rocks, the gem mining place we got them at called them).  So all the tables were both identical and just a little bit different. I can send you pics if you want, I just don’t want to post them.

heatherdanyel:  I have to say thank you. I’ve been having such a hard time visualizing what I actually want for centerpieces. I’m going for a very breezy, relaxed, yet elegant look and I think mismatched is the way for me to go. This never crossed my mind. Thanks again!

heatherdanyel:  Nearly everything at my wedding is “mismatched” from bridesmaids, to groomsmen, to bouquets, to centerpieces. I am a complete literary nerd, English Lit grad student, so I wanted to add some literary elements in an organic way. I have a collection of books that I will be using as part of our centerpieces. Each centerpiece will have a different book, a different frame with the table number, and a different tea pot on it. I have a collection of vintage books and some of the Penguin Classic hardcover editions that I’ll be using. Then each table with have candles and mismatched china. I don’t want any two tables to be the same 🙂

I was recently at a wedding where the bride had different center prices for all the tables and I loved it! She had been collecting the items for a little while. On our table we had two large green ceramics (one was a bird, the other an artichoke). But every table was different. My favorite were two wooden penguins. my wedding is 12/13/14 and I am now thinking I want to have two or three different centerpieces And mix them up (or organize them..) around the room. While my wedding and the one I mentioned are more casual, I did attend a very nice but fancy wedding earlier this year. They had beautiful floral centerpieces but I did notice that there were at least two different arrangements.

I’m doing mismatched, but with a “theme”- so I’ve beenn collecting old teacups, interesting ceramics, old books, lanterns, nice candleholders, etc. So each centrepiece will be different, but have kind of a “unified” theme, if that makes sense. All the tables will have the same table runners and numbers to kind of tie it all together.

My daughter had several different centerpieces.  It looked great.

I am going for the vintage, rustic mismatched centerpieces.  Just gathering things I find and will tie them all together once I have enough.  I think it depends on the overall feel you want.

We are having three different styles of centerpieces spread throughout the 15-18 tables. One tall, one medium, one small.
