Floral Inspiration for Creative Centerpieces

Planning the floral decor for your wedding will most likely be as stressful as choosing the right wedding dress. There are just so many styles to choose from and so many floral elements to consider, that it’s tough to know where to begin. For this blog, we’ll be exploring inspiration for creative centerpieces to help narrow down the wide world of wedding florals.

The Wow Factor:

If you’re looking to really impress your guests, you’ll want a centerpiece that speaks for itself. For this effect, consider adding different textures and colors on a larger flower holder. With floral textures, consider mixing the soft with the rustic. In the featured photo below, the lavender and soft pink carnations stand out with the charming and dark branches. The tall vase is thoughtfully skinny so that the centerpiece is a conversation piece, yet it won’t be an obstruction for your guests when they sit and enjoy their dinner together. When planning for a Wow Factor centerpiece, you’ll want to consider your wedding venue. Notice how the wood in the centerpiece below compliments the wood in the Great Hall of Celebrate at Snug Harbor. It completely flows with the space and doesn’t look out of place.

Focusing On Color:

If tall and textured doesn’t match your style, opt for a centerpiece that is more low key in terms of height, yet speaks volumes with it’s color variety. This featured centerpiece holds multiple types of eucalyptus leaves, pink and yellow solidago, with purple and orange as the accent colors. If you want your centerpiece to look as though you’ve gathered the finest florals from a lush garden, this is the style for you. When including more than one vase at the table, changing up the base of one of the centerpieces with aspidistra leaves will make each arrangement stand out even more. Remember, you’re going more for color here, and so the deep green of at the base will only further accentuate the eye-catching color scheme of the arrangement.

The Ever-Elegant White Centerpiece:

White flowers at a wedding are timeless.  When undecided on how to have your centerpiece best compliment your wedding theme, white florals will match any indoor or outdoor wedding. You can also get creative with mixing white roses, hydrangeas, and white daisies for the varied hues of white each flower carries. You’ll notice a hint of yellow in the floral combination featured below. Lastly, don’t forget a few green leaves to make the white stand out even more. If you’re going for classic, white florals are unfailing and sophisticated.
