One of the most beautiful additions to a wedding is the flowers, and the choices are unbelievable. From selecting your bouquet and boutonniere to your ceremony blooms, the options are seemingly endless. But even with florals playing a huge role in the ceremony itself, often the most incredible installments are on display during the reception in the form of centerpieces.
Flower centerpieces can be created in a multitude of sizes, shapes, heights, and color palettes. It’s all up to you to narrow down how you’d like beautiful blooms to fit into your overall aesthetic, whether you're planning a springtime soirée or a moody autumn celebration.

A great way to make your floral centerpieces seem larger without getting in the way of conversation around the table? An arch-shaped vase creates a lush, full look without all the height.
