Hey all yesterday I met with my florist!!!!! I am literally so excited after meeting with her! Here's my question. During The meeting we spoke about mixing up the centerpieces. Some highs and some lows. (Some big centerpieces and then some smaller ones ) I always thought center pieces all had to be the same. How are you doing your centerpieces? Will they all be the same? Or will their be some mix matched? Thanks all in advance.

    All of mine will be the same except for the kids table. We're doing lanterns with fairy lights for the adult tables and a bowl with packs of gold fish and animal crackers for the kids

    We are also doing high and low. We are doing the high ones down the center of the room as a focal point and the rest will be low.

    You can do whatever you want. I know lots of people that had different heights, different lanterns, different flowers. All of them matched a certain theme whether it be color or whatever else. But they don't all have to be exactly the same.

    To me, I personally don't like for them all to match or be the same. But that's just me and how I look at it. We are having half of the tables with square mercury glass planters and the other half with wooden lanterns and both will also have several small mercury glass candle votives around the tables. My florist is using the same color scheme of flowers but 2 different types of arrangements that she will use throughout. So, whatever you envision or want, go with it! When the day comes, your florist will pull through and it will be gorgeous!

    We had a mix of a little bit of everything at our wedding. We incorporated silver and glass elements to tie in with our colors. I've added some pictures for reference. I liked having a different centerpiece at every other table. It still looked cohesive without being very "matchy".

    Ours will all be the same, but I do like the idea of some high and some low.

    I've only ever seen the high & low centerpieces the last few years. So in about 8 weddings we attended in the last 3 years, every single one did the high lows. It's not for us personally but it's very pretty. The first time I saw it I remember thinking how cool that was so if it's not done in your circle that often, your guests are in for a treat. We just saw it too many times and it would make no sense for our venue.

    It wasn't in our budget to have flowers for all our tables, so just doing for half and the other half doing candles

    We have a combination of long and round tables. So we will have all low. But the rounds will have flower arrangements, some votives. The long tables with have greenery garlands, candles and gourds.

    Mine will all be the same and low. I personally am not a fan of high centerpieces but I have seen high and low combinations done alot and they look very pretty.

    We're having around 30 tables so I'm doing 3 different styles... a lantern style, a floating style, and a simple vase. All of them will be similar flowers and include matching table runners and candles to tie everything together (These photos are for style not color, everything will be purples and blues)

    All of mine will be low. However, I probably would have had some tall centerpieces but our venue is on a 10th floor deck at the oceanfront so I didn't want to have to worry about wind knocking them over!

    I love the look of highs and lows. I really wanted to that for ours but my florist talked me out of it based on the ceiling height of the venue.

    All of my tables are long so we're doing a garland of greenery and then a mixture of geometric terrariums and votives.

    We did a mix of high and lows! All high centerpieces felt a little much for me (both visually and budget-wise), so we did a mix. It also helped us lower the costs of our centerpieces because we were mixing it up between high centerpieces $$$, low centerpieces $$, and centerpieces that re-purposed the bridesmaid bouquets $.

    We are doing a mix of tables. Some long and some round. The only different will be that the round will have one lantern with flowers and the long will have two lanterns with a runner of flowers down the center. I think mixing them up a little is nice.
