Floral concepts are usually in a triangular pattern or sets of threes. It is appealing to the eye. Having a variety of heights gives that triangular shape and allows your eye to follow the line from the tabletop to the ceiling.
There are no rules for your flowers–I think I’ve mentioned that a few times. Mix it up a little and have several different types of centerpieces. It adds interest to the room–it also makes my job more interesting 😉 Making 25 matching centerpieces gets boring–same thing looking around a room with 25 matching centerpieces.
Congratulations to Kellie and Chris who were married 6 years ago at All Saints Church in the Heights and had their reception at the Heights Fire House. Thank you for letting LZ Floral Design be a part of your wedding.
Many reception venues have high ceilings which can make the room cavernous. At times it is necessary to add height to your tables to draw your guests attention back to your tables and away from that high ceiling.
Many times I have heard the complaint that, “At the last wedding I attended they had these big beautiful centerpieces thatcompletely blocked the view across the table and you couldn’t talk to anyone. We ended up putting the flowers on the floor so we could talk.” Well that completely defeated the purpose of having spent your floral budget on big beautiful floral displays for your tabletops if they are now all sitting on the floor. Your guests are not concerned about the same thing you are as the bride. You want everything beautiful and have been planning this event for a long time. Your guests are there to show their love and support for you and your new husband, but they are also there to visit with family and friends they haven’t seen in a while. Completely different purposes. The last thing you want is your decor to be a hindrance to them enjoying themselves at your wedding. Here is one option to help with that. Keep your centerpieces short. Typically a floral arrangement under 12 inches in height is going to give a really lovely display and keep that ‘area of conversation’ open for your guests to be able to talk and not be blocked by your flowers.
The most nerve racking moments of your wedding day are those few moments right before you walk down the aisle. Even if the marriage is not a concern–no cold feet here–you are about to stand in front of all of your friends and family; profess your undying love to this wonderful man and then have to kiss him, in front of your dad and your grandmother–No pressure. Lets dress up those doors you have to stare at for those last few moments, shall we…
