I had a discussion with a co-worker today and she mentioned that people won’t remember the floral centerpieces. I honestly admit that I can’t remember any of the floral centerpieces at the weddings that I’ve been to. Maybe I’m just not an observant person. So it got me thinking, will anyone remember the flowers after the wedding? I’m planning on having tall centerpieces and they’re expensive from the quotes that I’ve gotten. It makes me wonder if I should just go the inexpensive route since nobody will remember them anyways except for me.

I’ve only been to three weddings ever. I honestly have no idea what their centerpieces were. But, I think if they were something dramatic,huge,something that stands out, I would def remember them.
Do what you”re comfortable with. If you could use the xtra money from cutting back on your florals, then go for it.

I think the older guests will, but the younger ones won’t really care.

The only ones I remember were these huge silk flowers; years later I went to a wedding at the same venue and they still had those same awful flowers. I remember thinking they looked like they needed to be dusted. But, usually I don’t think most people will remember the flowers unless they are truly spectacular.

I don’t remember what the centerpieces were or the flowers in general for the last two American weddings I went to. I think that most guests don’t remember or pay much attention to any of the little things that brides concentrate so much on. If you have other areas where you can use the money (to get better food and drinks, music, etc.), then skip the expensive centerpieces.

I’ve only been to three weddings ever, but NONE of them had floral centre pieces. The first had goldfish in bowls, the second had nothing, and the last had logs with ribbons wrapped around them with holes drilled for tealights to sit on tope (sounds weird, but was totally pretty!)

Sigh, I think about this too. I’ve been to my fair share of weddings (and played bridesmaid a few times too), but I honestly can’t remember ANY of the centerpieces! And to take that even further, unless I was in the wedding party, I don’t remember anyone’s bouquet either! I’m going the DIY route for flowers (wedding party bouquet-making production line, haha). Flowers just aren’t all that important to me, so I’m personally willing to skimp on them. 🙂

We are diy’ing our flowers. I think we are going with densley packed carnation arrangements which look fun and modern in low vases if you stick with one color carnation per vase. I got the idea from Martha!

I can remember the flowers at most weddings I’ve been to in the last 5 years or so… maybe I’m a freak LOL 🙂
Probably most guests don’t notice or care, but some will.

The only centerpiece I even vaguely remember of the many weddings I’ve been to was the one I was pretty much forced to take home with me, so I had it in my apt for a week or so. Even that I don’t really remember that well!

I can’t remember the exact centerpieces, but I do remember the impression that they made. I can recall that one of the last weddings we went to seemed very bare and cheap. Another shortly after was gorgeous. So no, I can’t tell you exact details of them but I do recall the impressions…

I think pretty flowers add to the whole atmosphere but unless they’re truly unique or truly awful, people won’t remember them. 🙂
