Learn six tips for picking the best wedding centerpieces from floral designer Sarah Brysk Cohen in this Howcast video about wedding flowers.

Well, this a really fun question to answer. What’s the best wedding centerpiece? I do get this question a lot from people, what do you think is the most amazing thing that you can possibly do for your wedding, or if you had your wedding and you had a limitless budget, what would you use? I think the answer to that is that the best wedding centerpiece is the wedding centerpiece that appeals to you the most.

The process of selecting flowers for your wedding should be a collaboration between you and your florist. So the best idea would be to pull images from either, the internet or from magazines, even from your own art, or things that inspire you and to come in and talk to your florist about what it is that you envision. Do you envision very tall centerpieces, where people are just wowed when they walk in the room, or is it something that is going to be low and intimate, so that people can talk to each other across the table?

If you think about centerpieces, in terms of larger concepts like palette, size, scope, price, what’s your budget like and to be realistic about those kind of choices, I think then you can come up with the very best centerpiece for you and something that’s unique that’s not like anybody else’s centerpiece at their wedding. But a centerpiece is an incredibly important element of the wedding, and so you should really use this opportunity to collaborate with your florist, when thinking about centerpieces.
