wd.20

The big day is coming quickly. Before you know it, the wedding will have taken place along with the reception and soon you’ll be on your way to creating a wonderful life together. A big part of creating lasting memories for years to come includes the proper selection of wedding flowers, not only for the wedding party members and certain key family members, but also for the church.

A wedding ceremony is a very important day for the two people making the commitment before others – it is beautiful and full of love – a time for happiness, sharing, and celebration. To help set the mood and compliment the entire ceremony, the church should be decorated appropriately with flowers. When the proper flower choices are selected, the entire ceremony will seem magical to those involved as well as to those who are observing.

It is also very important to remember that the flowers chosen for this very special day will be reflected in photographs that last a lifetime. The pictures will capture the moments of the day and provide excellent memory discussions later on in life. Usually, a good number of formal pictures will be taken in the church – before, during and immediately after the ceremony. Therefore, it is important to have flowers in the church.

Here are 5 tips to choosing perfect wedding church flowers to complement the wedding ceremony:

1. Choose focal flowers that are large and noticeable to garner attention from the audience – generally of a white or cream color if traditional ceremony, although it’s okay to choose a bold color too, if that fits with the wedding style and church design. Examples include Calla Lily’s, Casablanca Lilies, Hydrangea, Gerbera Daisies, and of course Roses.

2. Select a secondary flower type (not a focal flower) of a color that complements the brides dresses and supports the focal flowers in the design. This will help to tie the flowers to the wedding party and bring it all together for the observers. Florists can help make suggestions on this, or look through bridal magazines to see flowers that look great together.

3. Include at least 3 flower arrangements in the church or an odd number of flower arrangements if more than 3. With three arrangements place one large arrangement in the altar area, preferably centered, and then two slightly smaller designs on each side of the altar, usually on the side of the stairs leading up to the altar. If cost is of concern, then go with 1 large arrangement on the altar and never have only 2. An even quantity of arrangements is boring

4. Have the flowers designed “out of the vase or container” if possible. The best way to accomplish this is to have supporting flowers and greens dangling over the edge of the vase or container. This will give the arrangement an interesting and “flowing” look and feel to it – supporting a beautiful flowing wedding ceremony.

5. Be aware that some flowers may be quite fragrant and cause allergic reactions to wedding members, family or friends. Most common reactions could be sneezing or congestion. Teary eyes may also occur, although that could be a result of someone’s feelings of joy and happiness. The most common flower type that people have reported allergies to are Oriental Lilies, so a hybrid or Asiatic lily type may work better if lilies are part of the style.

Choosing your wedding flowers for the church will now be easier with these tips. Put them to use and enjoy your special day. You will have beautiful flowers that everyone will love and see in the wedding pictures for years to come. The wedding day is a very important day which takes a lot of proper planning to make it extra special for all involved. Flowers are as much a part of the planning process as the rest of the details. These tips are intended to help with choosing perfect flowers to blend with ceremony and church.

Simple Wedding Church Flowers

If you are having a church wedding, flowers will play an important part of the day regardless if it’s a cathedral or small country parish although it is worth checking with your vicar/priest on any rules or regulations that could hinder your plans.

Wedding church flowers can be costly especially considering that they will be used for such a short period of time – the length of the ceremony therefore when choosing your arrangements plan and think carefully.

If you are on a tight budget you might want to keep the whole arrangement simple therefore saving on time, money and efforts or you might just like the idea of keeping things simple for the pure fact that having a church wedding represents holiness and purity.

Remember the altar will be the main focal point therefore an arrangement placed there would be a good idea opt for large floral blooms like carnations and daisies placed in a vase this gives the added bonus of being able to move them around and used again at the wedding reception.

Simple posies on the backs of chairs have a stunning effect put can add to the budget drastically, if you have a tight budget you could decorating the pew ends with floral bows or garlands made of baby’s breath this will give a romantic feel yet still keeping things simple, further more rose petals scattered down the aisle… now that is breath taking but can be pricey.

When decorating the church avoid decorating any areas that wont be seen by your guest sitting at the back at the church and identifying where everyone will be seated will give you a good idea of where to place any arrangements and should keep cost down.

Your Wedding Ceremony 10 Ways For Herbs and Flowers to Give Meaning to Your Perfect Wedding

Flowers add to life. So certainly, they’re going to add to your wedding. They’re delightful visually, adding color and texture. They can give us a sense of time: Forsythia? Everyone knows it’s spring. Maroon chrysanthemums announce the fall boldly. Occasionally, if we’re lucky, they bring a fragrance that changes our moods. Did you know that fragrance helps things sit fast in our brains better than any other sense? So don’t overlook scent as a way to add a layer to your wedding. Flowers and herbs also have a language — there are ancient meanings for many flowers that you may want to invoke to strengthen your vows and enrich first your wedding ceremony and then your marriage.

Here’s some practical advice about how to use these beauties.

  1. Carry them in a bouquet, nosegay or a flower ball. The kind and quantity of flowers you’re using along with the style of your wedding will determine what shape the bride’s flowers will take.
  2. Wear them in a boutonniere or corsage. While people often have corsages and boutonnieres made in the wedding colors, other than the bridal party, there’s no real reason for that to be true. Since you don’t typically have a lot of flowers outside the wedding party, it’s a fairly easy task to find out what people are wearing.
  3. Decorate the altar with them. Put flowers on the altar, or on a table that are in the wedding colors or that signify certain characteristics with which to bless your marriage.
  4. Bundle them, dried, into a decorated sachet or pomander. Sachets and pomanders were carried to keep city odors at bay, but they have been and can be so much more than that. Sachets in particular were filled with scents and “meanings” (in the language of flowers) and either carried or slipped in a pocket or a bodice.
  5. Have chosen guests or attendants fill a vase with flowers that represent blessings you would like to receive. Courage, fidelity, strength, laughter, all of these characteristics are identified with a flower. (and if they’re not, they should be… hmmm, what do you think, should gerberas represent laughter?)
  6. Have chosen guests or attendants mix potpourri. Mixing potpourri is the dried version of putting flowers in a vase. Herbs and petals can be mixed to make something beautiful and fragrant.
  7. Give flowers or sachets to guests as favors. Small standing test tubes will hold individual flowers. Sachets are wonderful for pockets, you can do different sachets for men and women, different scents, because there are differences between men and women!
  8. Put them on your dinner tables. Put pots of live herbs and flowers on your table that represent the characteristics that will enhance your marriage. Call your tables rosemary or red rose and name the strength associated with the flower.
  9. Give your guests seed packets to take home and sow… either in their back yard, or stealthily in a public place, or in the wild (only if they are native to the area in the wild, please, the last thing we need is another invasive species, and it’s not such a great metaphor. Oh, right Chris and Heather, weren’t they the people who let gorse into the wild at their 1986 wedding and now it’s all over the country? Nah, don’t let that happen!)
  10. Plant a portable garden that will return to your home. Use large pots for decoration that are planted with the wedding flowers and take them back to your porch or patio or deck or sun room as reminders of the qualities you want in your marriage.

The more you tie the flowers and the meanings together during the wedding ceremony and wedding vows, the stronger the reinforcement will be as you encounter those flowers during your marriage. And that’s what you want. Tiny little blessings that remind you, time and again, how lucky you are to be married to your beloved.

Let Your Flowers Do the Talking With the Right Wedding Centerpiece Flowers

If you are looking for wedding centerpiece flower ideas, you’re in the right place. There are many choices from flowers in tall vases and low candles to potted plants and simply flower petals scattered across the table.

The centerpieces should also carry the ceremonial colors and theme. Many brides choose flowers that have a symbolic meaning or a special meaning in the language of flowers. Some like to incorporate herbs or sprigs of ivy that can be rooted and passed through to the next generation.

Flowers are usually given often during the relationship before the wedding and the bride to be will have a favorite flower and color. Maybe she will prefer to use a certain flower that was special to her mother or grandmother.

The language of flowers has been passed down from the Victorian era where even the mere scent of a flower relayed a message. Dictionaries were written for this purpose and a favorite pass time was to make up bouquets of different flowers wrapped in a doily and tied with a ribbon. These bouquets were called a tussy- mussy. The recipient had to “decode” the secret message by the meaning of the flowers used in the bouquet.

Since there were different dictionaries with different meanings, conflicting messages were sometimes sent that could enhance or end the relationship.

In today’s standards, a card or letter can be given with the flowers to make sure the right message is relayed or it be a private thought between the bride and groom. The important consideration is that they be pleasing and beautiful for everyone to enjoy.

Flowers influence the mood of the event in their natural perfume, texture and color. It is a form of aromatherapy although it is not usually thought of in those terms.

It is important to keep a color balance in the floral scheme. For example if the main flower is a warm color, the secondary flower should be a cool color Warm colors are in the yellow, orange, and red family. Cool colors are in the blue, green, purple family.

Texture in fabrics and flowers is an important consideration and should remain consistent throughout the event. Romantic silks, satins, and velvets should echo the texture of the flowers. Examples are the velvety texture of the cockscomb flowers, satin rose petals, and silky orchids.

Natural more organic themes could be linen and cotton fabrics with sea shells for a beach wedding. A tropical wedding would be beautifully done with cotton fabrics and hibiscus, anthurium, ginger flowers, or orchids.

Keep in mind that the floral choice will convey feelings and emotions and should be chosen accordingly. For example, do you want a romantic feel or a casual feel. Your personality will be reflected in your floral choice.

So much can be said with flowers. At your wedding make sure you are conveying the message you want to express through your wedding flowers. Just like the Yellow Page phone book where you “let your fingers do the walking,” in your wedding, “let your flowers do the talking.”

Bride s Guide to White Wedding Hair Flowers

Thanks to Kate’s Royal Wedding, hair flowers are quite the rage. White wedding hair flowers have always been popular for wedding hair pieces but it seems they are more popular than ever since we got a glimpse of Pippa’s beautiful hair piece of white lily-of-the-valley flowers.

There are many sizes and styles of wedding hair flowers to choose from. The hair style will dictate which one will look best. If the hair style is arranged completely up, hair pins with flowers attached is a good choice. Also a hair comb is an excellent base to attach flowers and will hold them securely.

With a hair style that is partially up as with Pippa’s style, barrettes, bendini combs, or clips would hold the hair and flowers securely.

Barrettes, pony tail bands, bun wraps, head bands, clips, and bendini combs by scunci are good bases for hair flowers. Simple florist wire bent into a circle is the perfect base to make a beautiful flower girl halo. Small flowers and leaves are taped or glued onto the wire. A ribbon is a beautiful addition to cover where the ends are joined together.

To attach flowers to a hair accessory, they can be wired with florist wire, taped, or glued to any hair accessory available It is a very easy project and can be as simple as a single flower or as elaborate as a large arrangement of flowers wired together in the same fashion as a corsage.

The type of flowers used can range from silk, faux or fresh. Real touch faux flowers are so realistic it is hard to distinguish them from real flowers. If you choose fresh flowers keep in mind that some flowers such as gardenias, tuberose and lilies have a stronger fragrance.

Dendrobium and oncidium orchids make gorgeous floral hair pieces. They are very light weight and tend to stay in place well. If you are considering orchids as hairpieces, a good tip for saving on the cost if to purchase an orchid and cut the blooms. The plant will bloom again and make a wonderful house plant.

Keeping the floral hairpiece in place is easy if you remember a few techniques. For little flower girls who can be quite active, a tiny braid on each side of the head and attached in the back to form a circle makes a good foundation to attach the halo. Use small bobby pins or alligator clips.

Richard Ward and James Pryce (Kate Middleton’s hairdressers) created an ingenious technique to hold her tiara in place. The hair was backcombed on top with a tiny plait in the middle to create a foundation. The tiara was then sewn in place. This was an amazing invention. Sewing holds clothes and upholstery in place so why not use it for our hair! The important thing is to have the look we want with the least amount of worry. If it works, why not use it?

If you’re wondering what type of needle and thread to use, I would suggest a large tapestry needle and a strong thread such as upholstery thread in a color that matches the hair. Tapestry needles have a large eye for thread and a blunt end to prevent accidental punctures. If the hair is very long and heavy, tapestry thread could also be used.

White wedding hair flowers are definitely in fashion and there are so many wonderful variations to delight brides and their attendants.

The Rekindled Fascination With Wedding Hair Flowers

Thanks to Kate Middleton, one of the hottest accessories for wedding hair flowers is a hair piece made from fabric flowers or feathers. They are gorgeous and can be used in so many ways it’s no wonder everyone is including them in their ceremony.

Although Kate wore fresh flowers of lily of the valley, almost everyone who attended the Royal Wedding wore a hair piece, a hat, or a fascinator. Many were made with feathers and fabric flowers.

These small works of art are constructed on a hair comb, clip, or head band. They can be worn on top of the head, on either side, or toward the back. They can have a veil attached or it can be positioned under the piece with a separate comb.

A birdcage veil is a great choice to wear with these pieces. This type of veil is made from French or Russian netting or illusion netting which gives a softer look. The length of a birdcage veil can be just across the eyes, across the nose, or to the chin.

Another popular way to incorporate a veil is to have a small piece of the netting designed with a flower and feathers. It can be used to make a bow or small circle “base” for the flowers. This design is also attached to a comb, clip, or head band. For the bride to be who doesn’t want a full veil, this is a great choice.

My favorite wedding hair piece is called a fascinator. There are so many designs it’s really hard to choose just one, but I simply love when flowers and feathers are placed on a “disc”. This is a type of mini hat that makes an elegant hair piece and still allows most of the hair style to be seen. It also can be removed without messing up the hair.

The disc can be covered in fabric to match the wedding dress. A small circle of Russian or French veil looks great when placed under the disc. Fabric organdy or organza silk flowers can be attached on top of the disc and a few ostrich feathers to give it an extra touch of glamour.

A unique way to make the fascinators extra special is to attach a crystal broach or earrings to the disc. They can be removed and worn long after the wedding. Many brides are opting for a matching fascinator for the maid of honor, bridesmaids, and flower girl. Attaching a broach or earrings makes a lovely gift and adds that extra sparkle during the ceremony.

Of course, there are so many styles to choose from ranging from just a few feathers to large elaborate designs of flowers, feathers, pearls and crystals. A very subtle one could be made from just a few feathers arranged on a hair comb with a single pearl at the base of the feathers. Another subtle style could be made on a comb or clip using one or two silk flowers and a few airy feathers.

Feathers and silk flowers can be dyed to match any color of fabric which makes it easy to coordinate the bridal party. Hair pieces are all about how they make you feel and that should be like a princess! Be careful when you try on these wonderful accessories. If you go into a bridal shop wearing very casual clothes and only try on a hair piece, it is impossible to see how beautiful they really are.

As you shop for your wedding hair piece, keep in mind that as with anything, there is a large price range. I have found that the inexpensive pieces have flowers that do not hold their shape and are poorly made. Fabric flowers should be made from a good grade of fabric and they should look more like a real flower.

This is an accessory that will breathe new life into the wedding ensemble. Have fun with it on your special day and enjoy the fascination with wedding hair flowers!

Your Wedding Ceremony Decorate the Altar With Herbs and Flowers at Your Perfect Wedding

No matter where you’re being married, if there isn’t a table behind you for flowers, you may want to find one to put there. You may want candles, flowers or pictures to make the space more beautiful. Instead of a spray of flowers, carefully coordinated with the wedding attendant’s dresses, why not use the language of flowers and herbs to enrich your wedding ceremony?

Flowers have ancient meanings associated with them. In the past, lovers used to use flowers to hold conversations with one another when they didn’t have as much access as we have to our beloveds. Did you know that Bachelor Buttons mean Hope; Calla Lilies, Magnificent Beauty; and Daffodils, Regard and Constancy? Who knew a bouquet of springy yellow flowers could mean: You are the only one? Those are great Courtship flowers.

But the Orange Rose of Passion, the Red Rose of Love and Desire, the Violet of Devotion, Lavender of Loyalty and Marjoram of Joy? These are flowers to be included in the flowers gracing your Altar Table.

  • Find the flowers that have meaning for you and for your relationship and have a bouquet created for the altar table.
  • List the meanings for the flowers in your program so everyone can share.
  • Gather those meanings as blessings for the marriage on which you are embarking.
  • Pledge those characteristics as promises in your wedding vows.

The goal of your wedding ceremony is to create a lifelong marriage based on your wedding vows. Using flowers to cement the important characteristics and promises in your minds (and in your community’s) is an effect tool for reinforcing your vows. Use flowers to speak to you of love in your wedding ceremony. Then give one another flowers and emotions throughout your life together. The reminders will continue to work to deepen your rich relationship.

Do Your Homework on Wedding Centerpiece Flower Ideas Before Meeting With Your Vendor

There are so many amazing possibilities for wedding centerpiece flowers it’s hard to choose just a few. In fact, you may actually never see these wonderful ideas when meeting with wedding planners and vendors. Most often you will be directed to planning suggestions that are both convenient and profitable for the vendor. A little research on your part will help uncover some amazing choices that you don’t want to miss.

Once armed with some really good ideas then begin negotiating and planning with your vendors. Don’t be afraid to stick to your guns for what you really want. You will often hear the words “impossible” or “it can’t be done” which translated actually means, “We don’t have the time,” “we don’t know how,” or “there is very little profit in that.”

Most important in your selection is to stay true to the central colors and theme of your project. Here then are some wedding centerpiece flower ideas to spark your creativity. And rest assured we are not reinventing the wheel here. I have used or seen all of these ideas employed in weddings and in context they were all quite beautiful.

First decide if you want a casual beach style wedding with sea shells and tropical flowers, a formal display of roses and orchids, a romantic Victorian ceremony with peonies and hydrangea, or an over the top wedding with ice carvings, draped fabric, twinkle lights and chandeliers.

Carved ice centerpieces for tables at the reception works well with a garden wedding, a cruise wedding, or at an elaborate country club setting. For added charm, the ice can be carved into vases to hold fruit and flowers or into containers to hold food on the buffet table.

Carved ice sculptures can be placed on draped fabric with twinkle lights or votive candles to add to the ambiance or with rose petals scattered around on the table.

Chandeliers above the display will add a glow and extra sparkle to highlight the centerpiece. For an outdoor wedding, Paris flea market chandeliers can be ordered online and spray painted any color. They come with a hook and can be hung above the tables.

Silver works extremely well as a compliment to the ice sculptures. It can be used for the votive cups or containers for other floral arrangements. Silver punch bowls, candelabrum with flowers, or single silver candle stands are good choices.

Silver confetti scattered on the table, silver napkin rings, or simply a silver ribbon to hold the napkins will tie the scheme together. Tiny silver photo frames can be used as place card holders or to hold photos of the bride and groom.

Faux cement urns are amazing when brought indoors and used on the table tops, on pedestals, or on the floor with large full floral arrangements. Faux cement containers look like the real thing, but they are a fraction of the weight. Potted plants are also great choices to fill the urns. Green sheet moss makes beautiful organic filler in between the pots.

For a Victorian wedding, vintage containers are a great choice to hold centerpieces. Everything from a soup tureen to dainty tea cups can be used to hold flowers, potted plants, candles, and mints. The charm of a Victorian theme is that the containers don’t have to match. Vintage napkins and table cloths with lace would be a lovely addition.

Romantic roses, hydrangea, and peonies make the loveliest Victorian floral bouquets. During the Victorian era, flowers were used as a means of communication. A few of the flowers used and their meanings include: roses (gratitude), peony (prosperity), light pink roses (desire, passion, joy, beauty), lavender (love at first sight), and white for eternal love. Wheat conveys a message of “wealth and prosperity” and yellow expresses “friendship.”

Beach themed weddings can be casual, fun, and relaxed. Cool cottons or linens are great choices for the dresses and table cloths. Sea shells can be used to hold floral arrangements, as serving bowls and candle holders. Small shells can be made into place card holders. Shells can be incorporated into the bridal bouquets and centerpieces.

Natural “ribbons” of raffia and drift wood with tea lights, sand scattered on the tables with shells, a few tropical flowers all make wonderful choices for a beach themed wedding.

Keep in mind that florists and other wedding vendors will generally attempt to steer you in the direction of products and services that are most convenient with the highest profit for them. For that reason there are many wonderful choices for wedding centerpiece flowers that will not be brought to your attention. That’s why it’s important to do your homework before contacting your vendors.

How to Choose Dazzling Wedding Beach Flowers

It doesn’t matter whether you are planning a beach theme for your indoor ceremony or you are having an actual beach wedding, beach flowers are a must. You have endless types of flowers to choose from, and they come in colors, shapes and sizes to suit everyone’s taste and budget. All you need to do is invest a little planning time and you can treat yourself and your wedding guests to a beautiful display of flowers without spending more than you can afford.

Try these strategies for creating a winning beach wedding floral design on a budget:

Types of Floral Arrangements

The first step is determining the number and type of floral arrangements you’d like for your wedding. You can have loads of flowers, no flowers at all or something in between. Traditional weddings usually feature these types of flowers and floral arrangements: A floral arch, the bride’s wedding bouquet, the flower girl’s basket of flowers, bridesmaids’ corsages, boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen and flower arrangements for the reception tables. Corsages or boutonnieres for the couple’s close relatives are also common. Some brides use additional wedding beach flowers to create an aisle or path leading guests to the ceremony.

Tip: You will need fewer flowers for a beach wedding because you will be surrounded by the natural beauty of the setting. If you have a limited budget, you can get by with flowers for the bride and groom only. Replace the bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonniere with colorful Hawaiian-style leis to enhance the beach theme.

Cost

The average couple spends $2000 for flowers for their wedding. Beach flowers don’t need to cost that much, unless you choose to splurge.

When you have added up the number of flower arrangements you want, decide whether you want tropical flowers, non-tropical flowers or a mixture. After you know this, you are ready to ask florists for price estimates so you can lock in your budget.

What to Ask Florists

Unless you are an experienced floral arranger, leave that task to professionals. Ask wedding planners, other newly-married couples and hotels for their recommendations on local florists. Try to get at least three names, and meet with each candidate in person. Interview the florists by phone when this is not possible.

Ask each candidate these questions to identify the florist that’s ideal for your wedding: What services do you provide for weddings? Do you include your design services in the flowers’ cost? Have you designed floral arrangements specifically for beach weddings before? If so, can you show me some examples? Are there any additional charges on top of the cost of the flowers themselves, such as delivery or setup? How much lead time do you need for my order? Instead of an estimate, is a firm price quote possible?

Compare answers and quoted prices. Choose the florist who provides the most satisfactory answers to your questions AND offers a reasonable price in comparison to their competition.

Additional Money-Savers:

Use Locally Grown Flowers

If you stick with locally grown flowers you will save money. They don’t require refrigeration or shipment over long distances so florists usually sell them for lower prices. This lets you have a more lavish wedding on a smaller budget.

Tell your florist about the color of your decorations, the bridal couple’s clothing and the rest of the wedding party’s clothing. When your florist knows your color palate, they can recommend local flowers that coordinate with your wedding beach theme.

Use Floral Arrangements for More Than One Purpose

Flowers for your ceremony also can be used at your reception, reducing your floral budget. Plan ahead and your florist or close friends will be able to immediately move the ceremony flowers to the reception.

Make sure you use flowers with strong, waxy blooms if you want your flowers to do this kind of double duty. Heliconia, antherium, orchids and calla lilies work better because they hold up in heat and keep their fresh look throughout the ceremony, the reception and beyond.

Include Potted Plants and Greenery

Ask your florist to use potted plants and local greenery generously in your floral arrangements. These are less expensive than cut flowers. For example, palm fronds are beautiful, dramatic and plentiful. Depending on the location of your wedding, you may be able to find some local greenery on your own…for free.

To stretch your budget even further, include potted plants such as African violets, smaller orchids, and tallandsia, and give them to guests as wedding favors.

Choosing Your Wedding Ceremony Flowers

You have probably dreamed about your wedding from the time you were a little girl. You want everything to be perfect from the wedding dress, to the food, to the band and the photographer. Now you have to pick your flowers. You will need to choose ones for your bouquet, for church decorations and for reception centerpieces.

Then there are miscellaneous flower for your mother and future mother-in-law, aunts and grandmothers. They will all receive flowers from you, which you should personally present to them on your wedding day to make them even more special to them.

When you think about your flowers, it is natural to want to pick your favorites. If your favorite flower is a white rose, then that is what you should center them around. Your bouquet should be the first item you decide on, because that will set the tone for the bouquets for your attendants. Once all the bouquets are chosen and ordered then move on to the next group of flowers.

You need flowers for the church. Working with roses, you can have them arranged in very tall vases for each end of the altar. A few roses tied with a long ribbon can be used to mark the pews or rows. They do not have to be overdone, remember that less is more and you want to be the center of attention not the flora.

Once you get to the reception, more wedding flowers will be needed. Upon entering your reception you may want a wall of them suspended from the ceiling for a very dramatic effect. Or a simple arrangement on a table may be dramatic yet simple to accomplish.

Table centerpieces can be very tall, or very short, it all depends on the look you are going for. Tall vases must be tall enough not to interfere with conversation among guests at the table and allow them to easily see each other and hence get some conversations going at the tables.

Wedding flowers are expensive and you need to budget the costs into your overall wedding budget. Meet with several florists, give them an idea of what you are looking for and then let them present you with their ideas and costs. You should get more than one florist to provide this information so that you have choices.
