Learn eight tips for picking a wedding table centerpiece from floral designer Sarah Brysk Cohen in this Howcast video about wedding flowers.
So there are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a wedding centerpiece. I always encourage people to think about the venue where they’re getting married, and the style of wedding that they want to have, before they start making some of these smaller decisions, like about flowers. So if you’re getting married outside, if you’re getting married inside, what shape are the tables? What size are the tables? What’s your budget? That’s a really important question to ask yourself.
All of these mini-decisions can guide how you want to go with your flowers, and for centerpieces, really the options are absolutely limitless. You can do something quite tall. You can do something low. You can do traditional glass containers. You can do vintage tins. You can do found objects for centerpieces. It’s really whatever your imagination dictates. The options are absolutely open to you. So it’s really just about having a good conversation with your florist and collaborating with ideas.
