So I already ordered our centerpieces, and showed a picture of the centerpiece arrangements to my aunt who is like a big sis to me, and she was disappointed when I said there would be 2 sizes, the tall ones and medium sized ones (shorter). She kind of went “with why not all tall?” I began to second guess myself and am beginning to worry it won’t look right. All of the flowers will pretty much be the same so it’s just the height that’s different. What do you think…alternating or all tall? Will it look weird if the height alternates?

Doing centerpieces at different heights is very popular now! We’re doing 3 variations actually – a very tall for the outside tables, a medium-tall heigh for those closer in, and then a medium-height for the ones closest to the center of the action. 🙂 I love the contrast of the different heights – it adds movement around the room and helps extend your colors into the venue. I say go for it – it will be beautiful!

That’s what I was going for, and remember hearing that it added more ambiance to the room, but when you have someone say wha? It makes me think about it again. Thanks Ms. Luckyyou, I needed the reassurance. Yours sound really nice, and makes sense for the tall ones to be on the outside, hadn’t thought of that.

I definitely like the look of alternating heights. I think it makes the overall impression in the room cool.

We did that for our centerpieces, a high and a low. I’ll try to grab a picture of it!

we are doing two different sizes for the church.
One small low grouping around the unity candles, with two taller fuller bunches on each side of the alter.
for the reception, we are doing three different groups. Each grouping will be split between a third of the tables.

It’s a little hard to see, but you’re looking at a low table, and you can sort of see the high in the front and behind…

I think alternating heights will be visually lovely in the room!

Our florist recommended doing different heights…she said it brought more depth to the room. Our reception hall has really high ceilings, so we are doing really tall, slender vases and varying height cylinders with votive candles as well.

All of my centerpieces are going to be completely different for the most part! I have various sizes and shapes of vases, and I’m so excited about how it will look. I think that it will add visual interest. I don’t like matchy-matchy…but that is a personal opinion!

Alternating centerpieces can really help a room. Depending on the number of tables, you may not want to do all tall ones. Imagine the tables closest to the dance floor. Everyone sitting behind that table will have to look around the tall centerpiece to see the action. It would be much easier to have the lower ones closer to the action.

Alternating centerpieces are exellent way to add to the whole look of the room. I often use alternating to break up a room adding fun and flair when doing green weddings. It makes the whole room more interesting and lively. You will be pleased! http://www.harmonyhillgardens.com
