Some of the most important pieces of wedding decor you’ll have to think about are your centrepieces. These play a key role in ensuring your overall theme comes together nicely, and is carried throughout your special day.
Not only will you have to consider the tables your centrepieces will be standing on (or floating above), but you’ll also have to consider how functional they will be for your guests. Will your guests be able to talk to each other with ease, or will it take a bit of maneuvering to peer around larger, towering flowers and candles?
We’ve chosen 10 innovating wedding reception centrepiece ideas we’re currently swooning over. Ranging from minimalist and modern to more-is-more florals, these unique ideas will inspire you to take a closer look at your reception tables.
