Centerpieces: Why Are They Important In Your Reception

Monday, December 16th, 2013


Most of the time, people spend a lot of time planning their reception above any other part of the wedding. This is because there are too many details that they need to smoothen out before the big day comes. And since everything needs to be perfect and laid out appropriately, they spend a lot of time on it.

One of the things that couples plan about the reception is the venue and the decorations; among which is their table centerpiece. While couples may forego their table linens, floral arrangements, or table setting, they have to pay attention to the centerpiece. It is a commonly disregarded piece that couples deal with when planning their wedding reception.

A reason why the centerpiece plays an important part in the reception is because most of the time, the guests will be staying on their designated tables. With the help of the centerpiece, they are able to have a comfortable stay at the table. At the same time, it can help serve as an ice breaker for guests who have been assigned to sit together. As such, it really pays to have a creative and unique centerpiece for the reception.

But how do people choose a centerpiece for their reception? The best thing about centerpieces is that it can be so easy to use anything. As long as it coordinates with the theme of the wedding, there will be no problem using it. Also, it’s good that the centerpiece can serve its purpose; depending on the occasion. For example, if the event is in a dimly lit location, having a bowl of water with lit floating candles on it can be a great help.

Anything you choose to use as the centerpiece can do great, especially if you have chosen it to match your theme and the venue. If you would like to tour our venue to check out possible centerpiece options, you can give us a call today. We’d be happy to help!
