If you have it in your budget to get long low arrangements that stretch along each table, do it.

It will look amazing. But it will be pricey.

Otherwise I would recomend 2-3 smaller arrangements dotted along the tables. The only issue with 1 arrangement in the middle of a long table is that the people at the ends dont get to enjoy the flowers.

Get your florist to put a lot of natives and greenery in there too, that will make it cheaper but still give you a lovely full look.

 I had one really long table at my reception (like 30 feet or more), although it was wider than yours. I made a runner for it since I could not find one that long to buy. Then I took asparagus fern out of my parents yard and put it on the runner. I bought votive candles off the internet and ordered a pallet of flowers from the florist (cheaper this way)  – They were placed throughout the fern. I loved it and got many compliments . I also liked that it was low so everyone could see over it

havenspartyof2:  You could do a long runner made of greenery like dusty miller, lambs ears, eucalyptus or olive leaves and insert flowers in florist tubes. Greenery is much less expensive than flowers.

Or, you could do one larger centerpiece in the center of the table and use candles to extend the line to the ends of the tables.

this one would be expensive if you can’t find the vases at Dollar Tree. The flowers aren’t high cost because there is only one flower head for every two vases.

flowers in bottles and vases of various sizes and shapes is a great look

havenspartyof2:  you’re welcome! And, it was pretty cheap. this was 10 years ago but i think I spent $150 on the pallet of flowers (that included flowers for my bouquet and bridesmaids), $50 for 50 votives with glass holders and about $35 for the fabric runner. You just have to search for deals! And I planned my wedding in 4 months, so it’s possible to still find deals on a time crunch 🙂

I did candle runners and eliminated the flowers that were to go in between just because I added more and more candles! The tables ended up looking very romantic.  I love long tables!
