I would do both. Alternate short and tall centerpieces.

I caution at large centerpieces because guests can’t see through them.  But at the same time, they can look pretty awesome!

I like the short centerpieces. I would also worry about guests seeing each other around ones that are too tall.

I think you should alternate also. It adds variety and dimension to the room, especially a large room.

Also, as a side note, be careful with blue uplighting, it might make the room look really cold and might photograph strangely. I’d go with yellow. Warmer and happier (at least for lighting purposes)

@RiverBride13:  She could alternate between blue and yellow. That way she has the bright happy yellow, but still the pretty and deep blue.

My fiance had one rule: no tall centerpieces.  He complains that every wedding he’s ever been to, he can’t talk to the person sitting across from him because he can’t see them.  We’re doing short, but I agree with him.  However, your venue has a lot of depth, so even though it might hinder the guests, I’d say go with some tall!
