    I say short. The last wedding i went to all of the centerpieces were so tall that no one could see across the tables and it was blocking everything. An hour in, all of the centerpieces ended up on the floor.

    one, i’m so jealous of your venue. i LOVE castle in the clouds. but it was way out of budget for us.

    two, i’d stick to one height. i’m too picky, i think a mix would make me twitchy.

    I actually prefer the variance of tall and short!

    I don’t care much for a mix and I think that tall centerpeices, which annoying, are way more formal than short ones. If your wedding is super formal, I’d go with all tall.

    @FutureDrScott:  We had mostly tall centerpieces with some short ones mixed in here and there and it looked great. If you ensure that the centerpieces are tall enough they will not be in the way of your guests, I promise.

     

    We had 33″ candelabras, the perfect height.

    @FutureDrScott:  We are doing a mixture! We have 8 tall and 13 short. My wedding is in two weeks, so I will try and remember to come post pictures after the fact! Our reasoning behind this is too many tall ones make it hard to see and make it seem more crowded. They are also more expensive. Because of this we landed on the mixture, and according to our florist it is popular and looks very nice! I think all short doesn’t give much height, but all tall is too much height (clouds visibility) so I am very excited about our mixture!

    Mixing is more interesting and keeps your eyes moving around the room.  All short leaves nothing to focus on and all tall blocks the view of the room.  I am talking about as people enter the reception room, what they will see as a whole.
