|The centerpieces that you choose for your wedding reception will set the overall tone for the event’s décor for the event. There are many different types of centerpieces, including silk or fresh flower arrangements, candleholders with decorative candles, novelty items, and many other decorative elements.
If you decide to use flower arrangements as centerpieces at your wedding reception, the first decision you will have to make is whether or not to use silk or fresh flowers. Many people decide to use fresh flowers during the ceremony, and then create decorations for the reception from silk flowers that coordinate with those used in the ceremony. This way, the bride and groom will be able to incorporate the silk arrangements into their home décor following the ceremony.
Regardless of the types of flowers you are using to create your centerpiece arrangements, it’s important to choose colors and types of flowers that coordinate well with those used in the ceremony. It’s also important to keep the tone consistent throughout the ceremony and reception. If the wedding is casual, the decorations should reflect a casual feel. A formal wedding requires a more formal style of flower arrangements.
