Last time I spoke with the event coordinator at my venue she asked if I was going to alternate tall and short arrangements. As of now, I had planned on every table having the same centerpiece (a cylinder vase filled with water with a red rose on the bottom and a floating candle on top, placed on a mirror with red rose petals and white votive candles scattered across the table.. for a grand total of $8 per centerpiece!).. but now I’m kind of questioning if I should mix it up :/ I’m having a winter wedding so I’m kind of wanting to incorporate a bit of a winter theme into it and I found a silver curly willow that I’m interested in using for something. Possibly in centerpieces? Is there anything wrong with having 10 tables with matching, short centerpieces?

We’re having 10 tables with matching tall centerpieces. I don’t think it matters if it is 1/2 and 1/2 or if it is all one thing. As long as it looks nice, why does it matter? That said, if you like the curly willow a lot, you can alternate it.

lilbluebird, I think it’s just that I can’t picture them all being the same, and at the same time I can’t picture having both and them looking good together (basically I’m worried about it looking a bit mismatched if I use 2 diff ones). Ahh, I’m so bad at envisioning some of these things! Plus, the venue has really high ceilings so I don’t know if having a bunch of short centerpieces will look right.

All of my tables had the same centerpiece on it and they were all short. The only weddings I’ve been at where it’s alternating is if some of the centerpieces are tall, so some of the tables are short. At my friend’s wedding that I just went to some of the tables had tall centerpieces and some had cylinders with water and a floating candle on top of different heights with flowers around. The cylinders were a mix of tall and short.. So I guess she alternated tall centerpieces.
Here is a picture of a few tables with my matching short centerpieces.

My friend had a wedding where half the tables had tall flower arrangements, the other half had short, they were beautiful arrangements and simple
Another friend had tall centerpieces flanked by 2 smaller ones, there were 3 tables and it was lush with flowers (destination wedding) it looked beautiful too,(I helped her arrange it)
Like my friend’s husband said one time no one really pays attention to flowers so long as it looks nice, so whatever you feel like doing I’m sure it will look beautiful

Hi! i just helpd my cousin with her wedding and reception! and it usully looks better to have at least two different centerpiece and alternating heights rather then having them all be the same and at same heights…. I would personally go with two different heights and two different pieces as long as they match the theme and the colors coordinate! good luck! 🙂

On individual round tables I don’t think alternating makes sense. If you are doing long banquet style tables, then yeah, why not?
