I realize that flowers and floral qoutes are going to range based on location, season, ect. BUT are low floral centerpeices generally cheaper compared to tall floral? I ask because I have my heart set on tall floral arrangements for each table. I have a guest list of about 190-200 so I’m estimating about 24/25 tables and am working on a moderate budget.

Like most questions, the answer is “it depends”.
You can have a tall centerpiece with a massive amount of flowers or a tall centerpiece with a few flowers or a pomander on a candelabra.
Other factors are the flowers you choose, whether or not they are in season, and if you include more greenery.
Generally speaking , taller floral centerpieces are more expensive because they are larger thn what is directly on the table.
less expensive seasonal flowers

If it is the same type of flowers, usually taller centeripieces are more money than low because low centerpieces tend to be smaller to take up less table space. If you have your heart set on tall centerpieces but want to keep the cost down, you could always do half and half. We are actually doing that. I think it makes the room look more interesting too when the tables are a little different.

Price totally aside, tall center pieces drive me BATTY because you have to talk around them to people on the other side of the table, if that tips you one way or the other.

Even though this has nothing to do with money, I totally agree with Mal_Adjusted:
on tall centerpieces.
I can’t stand not being able to socialize with the people across from me!

“heart set on” maybe doesn’t hold true. I thought the taller centerpeices would just make a room pop more but they would defeat it’s purpose if the guests didn’t like them!

I orginally wanted tall centerpieces, but the cost drove me away. Then I decided on half tall, half short. A friend of mine brought up a valid point other PP’s are saying where its a pain to talk around, or through the tall centerpieces. Needless to say… all my cenerpieces are now short. BUT I do have some other tall decor around the venue.

Every single place i went to had the low centerpieces come in FAR cheaper. We’re doing real flowers because i think fake ones tend to look cheap. Are they expensive? yeah, but this gets me the look i’m going for. The look of our room (huge) required tall centerpieces. We were worried about people seeing others across from them so our florest suggested these candelabra things. They are perfect. They are nice and thin so our guests can see eachother with no problem.

I would suggest purchasing your own vases used online and then giving them to the florist to use… you can find some great deals on sites like tradesy. If you let the florist charge you to rent their own tall centerpieces it will prob cost you more.
