4 Most Popular Floral Centerpiece Options for a Wedding

Hello all! Kathryn here from Beautifully Bloomed!

Many people have asked me what the most popular (floral) centerpiece options are at weddings and this blog post will hopefully teach you those options and better give you a reference for what works best for you.

Typically people choose between these for options so I wanted to quickly talk about them to help you understand that there are so many things you can do but these are the four most popular.

  1. Classic compote: These are what I call your classic, beautiful centerpieces and typically a fitted compote. They are elegant and beautiful and a staple to any wedding. Typically they are about 1 ft by 1 ft by 1.5 ft. Nothing super large, but just enough to add a floral element to your wedding.
  2. Bud vases and greens: These options are incredibly elegant simple with a reasonable price tag to help centerpiece costs stay low. We typically place 1-2 flowers and 1-2 greens per bud vase and have a total of 3 bud vases per table. After the bud vases are set, we add the greenery element to complete the look.
  3. Talls/ elevated compotes: these are arrangements that are nice and tall typically sit about 4 to 5 feet above the table. They are incredibly beautiful, elegant, ring that wow factor to your guests. But that being said they end up being pretty hefty in price so you really don’t need more than 25% of your tables with talls.
  4. Loose Greens: Another option I see many people here in Iowa take on our loose greens. Loose screens are basically greens that are coming out of or laid next to candles or maybe another physical décor peace. Luckily, here at Beautifully Bloomed, you can rent candles from us along with any greenery run or you can think of. Two for the price of one.

Again, there are many other options for centerpieces but hopefully this helps you narrow your vision on what would be best for your wedding.
