Many brides struggle to choose between tall and short centerpieces. Although there are pros and cons for both choices, today let’s talk about short centerpieces. Short centerpieces are understated and allow guests to focus on each other. With a short centerpiece, you never have to worry about flowers blocking your view of the person across the table! Short centerpieces are perfect for a more elegant reception. I love this unique take on the short centerpiece! This couple used succulents in their centerpiece as part of a desert style event. Notice how the vibrant reds and blues in the centerpiece draw on the colors in the place settings to unify the table.

And to prove the versatility of the short centerpiece, here is one with a more vintage feel. The pastel roses and the gold vases make this centerpiece appropriate for a formal wedding. Remember that a formal affair doesn’t necessarily mean a tall centerpiece!

As you decide what centerpieces to use, consider your goals and think outside the box. Short centerpieces are versatile and elegant, and they let love and friendship be the center of attention, rather than the centerpiece.
