Wedding centerpieces set the tone and style of your wedding reception. Think about it: A laid back beach wedding evokes a different feel than an NYC ballroom. Similarly, a boho-style wedding in Scottsdale will look completely different than a celebrations set in a Chicago gallery space.
Once you select your wedding venue and style, it’s time for the real fun to begin. Now, you can start planning your wedding décor — particularly the wedding table decorations that will distinguish your reception tables.

What Are Wedding Centerpieces?
Look, centerpieces are far more than just table decorations. Centerpieces bring the mood, theme, and style of your wedding celebration to each reception table.
Wedding centerpieces also distinguish the private dining space for each guest. Suddenly, a simple wedding reception table is transformed into an island of the utmost beauty.
Arguably, guests will spend most of the reception at their dining table (unless, of course, your epic wedding entertainment can get them on the dance floor). With that in mind, it’s important to create an inviting space that encourages lingering over a delicious meal — and a picture-perfect wedding cake.
From romantic red roses and dramatic orchid installations to golden candelabras and Art Deco-style feathers — the ideal wedding centerpiece idea awaits you.
Do You Need Centerpieces at a Wedding?
Good Question. While there is no right or wrong way to have a wedding reception, we highly recommend hiring a design/décor/floral team to create gorgeous wedding centerpieces and table décor that capture the spirit, style, and theme of your wedding celebration.
As discussed above, decorating your wedding reception tables with centerpieces creates a beautiful dining experience for your guests.
From the moment your closest friends and family take a seat, they are temporarily transported into a space that is both private and connected to the whole. Centerpieces can distinguish each individual table as its own beautiful space. They can also connect the table to the larger celebration through similar décor and design motifs.
Additionally, wedding table decorations result in beautiful photographs. Most likely, you’ll want shots of each table group. Wedding centerpieces transform an ordinary photo of people into a treasured (and gorgeous) keepsake.
Feeling overwhelmed? No need to worry. PartySlate can help you find your dream design/décor/floral team, along with a wedding planner to coordinate every detail of this momentous occasion. Finding the best wedding vendors and venues has never been easier.
How Do I Choose a Wedding Centerpiece?
No doubt about it, choosing a centerpiece may feel overwhelming. Luckily, PartySlate can guide you through every step of the process.
Once you’ve settled on the style of your wedding, you’ll want to keep in the mind your wedding date. As flowers are seasonal, their price and availability will vary.

How Much Is a Centerpiece For a Wedding?
The cost of your centerpieces will depend on a variety of factors, including (but not limited to) type and seasonality of selected flowers, the size of your arrangements, and the complexity of each design.
Your wedding design/décor/floral team can help you find the right centerpieces for your wedding budget.
Should I DIY My Wedding Flowers?
Think about it: Planning a wedding is a lot of work. You will want to savor every minute of your wedding day — without having to worry about the minute details or last minute alterations.
With that in mind, we highly recommend hiring a wedding design/décor/floral team to create your centerpieces.
After all, you don’t want to have to spend your wedding reception going from table to table, making sure that your centerpieces are still intact. Most likely, you’ll also want to spend those precious days before the wedding without experiencing the stress of creating fresh wedding table decorations.
Your wedding day will also be one of the most important (and photographed) days of your life. While DIY is great for seasonal home decorations or fun craft projects, it’s not necessarily the best choice for an event as important as your wedding celebration.
