Wedding centerpieces, while just one part of your reception, are an important aspect. Your guests will admire them as they sit down to eat and visit throughout the reception, and these central decorations go a long way in creating an overall ambiance for the event. Bryant’s Rent-All offers affordable and attractive rental options in Lexington, KY. Before you pick your centerpieces for rental, consider some important factors.
To easily choose wedding centerpieces to complement the rest of your wedding decorations and overall theme, here are four things to keep in mind:
- Budget: As you work with the budget for your wedding as a whole, you can separate how much you’d like to spend on decorations, including the centerpieces themselves. Plan out how many guests you will have and how many will sit at a table—you’ll then know how many centerpieces you need. Decide if you’d like to have centerpieces for additional tables, like for the cake, guest book, and sweetheart tables. From there, you can determine how much you can spend on each piece.
- Venue Coordination: Your venue will have a huge impact on your décor selections. Is your reception in a barn for a rustic theme or at a seaside villa for a fresh, beach theme? Your venue may also have restrictions on what you can use, such as the open flame of candles or the breakable glass of vases. Don’t make any décor decisions until you know the venue.
- Inspiration: To keep your theme consistent, use your dresses and bouquets for inspiration in choosing centerpieces. Incorporate the color scheme of your flowers, or use some lace to match the lace on your wedding dress. These small connections may not be obvious to the untrained eye but will go a long way in maintaining attractive cohesion for the event.
- Size & Shape: Maintain balance by considering the size and shape of your tables. If you have circular tables, a round centerpiece is best. Rectangular tables look great with straight sided centerpieces. For practicality, you should also consider how large the centerpiece can be — there should be enough space for guests to sit and eat comfortably, and you don’t want it to be so tall that they can’t talk with the person sitting opposite to them at the table.
