terrylovesroy:  These look sooo great! Where in the flower district did you get these? I’ve been shopping at Jamali Gardens on 28th street but haven’t seen anybody elses flowers look so real. If you don’t mind sharing, about how much per centerpiece are you spending?

elyseDCB:  Commenting that the guests will not be able to convers across the table is not impolite. Bees are only trying too give the OP a head’s up that her centerpieces are going to interfere with her guests’ enjoyment of the reception,(in case she wasn’t aware) but she clearly doesn’t care.

Some references :

1.A height guideline for centerpieces is less than 12″ for low designs. Tall designs should be over the head height of the seated guests to allow for conversation and seeing to the other side of the table.

The reference to tall centerpieces means those on top of candelabra or eiffel vases that are narrow -once again so the guests can converse. The arrangement of flowers sits above that height.

2.Make sure your centerpieces are not more than 12 inches tall.This will be well below the line of vision.

3.They say that even if the pedestal or vase is thin or clear, people can still find this annoying when they are visiting. The general rule for shorter centerpieces is that they need to be under about 12″ in order for guests to comfortably see over the arrangement. <br />

4.Keep floral arrangements and other table décor under 14 inches or over 20 inches high—depending upon the size of your venue—so guests can see and talk with each other across the table.

There are dozens of other references online.

Not just a problem with the guests conversing with each other, but what about being able to see the head table for those that have a center piece right in their line of sight?

They won’t be able to see the head table, cake cutting, first dances…

Makes me think “jealousbee” could be a new word instead of jealousy…

Those are beautiful centerpieces!  I was looking through several of your posts, and all of your work is amazing!

Don’t worry about the centerpieces obscuring anyone’s view. There will be plenty of other things for them to look at at your wedding. Like that gorgeous cake of yours! 🙂
