    Both are pretty, but on a practical level I like the shorter ones better. Sorry.

    You can always have 3 centerpieces so everybody wins. Or put the low floral arrangement inside the birdcage.

    I love tall centerpieces as well. To get around the centerpieces getting in people’s way, I’m having tall eiffel tower vases (they’re skinny). Got them at save-on-crafts.com, the cheapest place out of all that I’ve seen and they’re pretty good quality.

    Unless the tall centrepieces are pretty skinny too, they’re really gonna get in the way of guests interacting (especially with a round table). Not to mention they might be more top heavy and easier to knock over if someone bumps the table.

    @eeruhlig:  I like the short ones for tables where people will be trying to have conversations. If you have other tables set up for food, gifts, ect. then I would put the tall ones there because they are really pretty.

    I agree with the above – It’ll be easier for guests to chat at the tables with the smaller centerpieces (I think they will still look cute with the birdcages), but maybe you can find ways to use the tall ones at your venue like at the guest book table, etc.?

    @julies1949:  agreed

    Why don’t you do a mixture of all of them…tall, short, bird cages. But if you are going with one or the other, I would probably go with the shorter ones so that people can see over them.

    When we were talking about centerpieces, my mom said that tall centerpieces were really big in the 80s (when she and my dad were going to lots of weddings when their friends were getting married), and at almost ALL of the weddings, someone would end up taking the centerpiece off the table so everyone at the table could see each other and talk. (Probably the people who moved the centerpieces were all guys, who just don’t understand Wink)

    I really like both of them, i love tall centerpieces too except for the fact of blocking peoples vision…that would be my only concern with them, but if you are careful with the placement of them, i think it would be fine…for example maybe put the tall centerpieces on the outer tables and the short ones on the inner tables?
