    I just love high centerpieces, I think it gives such drama to the room…I guess that is what you have to ask yourself- either way will be pretty- but do you want more drama? Or do you want that more intimate feel?

    Personally, I’d go for the high because it’s a little different.

    We chose low center pieces because we  hate sitting at a table with centerpieces that prevent you from seeing/talking to the people on the other side. But I’ve been to weddings with a mix of high and low and it always looks very pretty. It’s just not that functional

    is your venue similar to this?? my venue has chandeliers and lighting at every table so tall centerpieces would clash from the drama of the room.

    i prefer shorter ones so you can actually see the person accross from you. .

    we’re doing lots of moss, with books, and terrarium jars on top of the book. also doing bird cages and lanters.

    @CanAmBride: I love tall centerpieces, but I always notice this at weddings too. If it’s too tall and it blocks your view of people across the table, they can get in the way!

    I like a mix of high and low, too, because it adds some variety. Depending on what your budget is, that can also be a way to save on centerpieces because the taller ones can be more expensive.

    I personally want to be able to see around the table so prefer short centerpieces, but tall centerpieces look elegant in large rooms (weddings of 100+) and formal settings. If you’re having a small wedding and/or informal wedding, I’d go with a shorter centerpiece. I wouldn’t recommend both unless they are on the same table. Having tall centerpieces on some tables and small on others just makes the eyes wander up and down too much.

    I like the look of 50/50 tall and short 🙂

    i’m doing half and half. low centerpieces are usually cheaper, so that’s a nice bonus!
