Wedding centerpieces often include flowers, candles or other decorative items that coordinate with the color scheme and theme of the wedding decor. Traditional looks often favor large flower bouquets in vases or ornate candle holders, while more modern looks seek to fit the personality of the bride and groom.
Additions beyond simple flowers include sea shells, engraved signs, photos in frames, potted plants and bowls of fruit. Unique vases and bowls provide a fresh look. Centerpieces vary greatly in size depending on the number and size of the tables at the reception. Some couples opt for one large centerpiece per table, while others use multiple small pieces per table.
