Wed­ding cen­ter­piece In­spi­ra­tion

Brides Essence - - Contents - By Lor­raine Hirst

Ta­ble cen­tre­pieces are an im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tion when plan­ning your wed­ding flow­ers. They add beauty, drama or whimsy (depend­ing on your theme) to a wed­ding ta­ble and are a crit­i­cal part of the wed­ding dé­cor.

When de­sign­ing the cen­tre­pieces for your wed­ding, it’s im­por­tant to keep the tone and style of your wed­ding in mind – as well as the time of year in or­der to tie ev­ery­thing to­gether seam­lessly. Ob­vi­ously an el­e­gant oc­ca­sion calls for an el­e­gant cen­tre­piece de­sign, while a ca­sual wed­ding calls for some­thing less for­mal and struc­tured.

Al­ways try to choose flow­ers that are in sea­son and “lo­cal”, as this will en­sure that when you or­der, your flow­ers are read­ily avail­able. Also choose flow­ers that com­ple­ment your other dé­cor. Brief your florist well and they will help you se­lect the per­fect sea­sonal flow­ers for state­ment cen­ter­pieces.

There is no harm in search­ing the in­ter­net for ideas and in­spi­ra­tion but try not to throw the net too wide – there is noth­ing more frus­trat­ing than find­ing a lovely cen­ter­piece and re­al­is­ing that the flow­ers you love are not avail­able or are pro­hib­i­tively ex­pen­sive to im­port.
