How to Choose the Best Centrepiece Style for Your Wedding

How to choose the best centrepiece style for your wedding

Table centrepieces are essential decorations that help jazz up any wedding venue. However, it is important to know that there is much more to consider when choosing your arrangements than simply listing your favourite flowers.

From colour schemes and wedding styles to candle holders and vessel decorations, we’ve rounded up a few creative and modern centrepiece alternatives that are perfect for both traditional and classic celebrations.

Here’s a bit of inspiration for every theme and style of celebration:


Recently, we’ve seen books, branches, and even sculptures presented as beautiful tabletop décor options; however, they are not your only vintage options. You can also use balloons, candlesticks, garlands, fruits and vegetables, or even spray-painted leaves.

Head to your local thrift store or antique market to stock up on finds for your vintage wedding centrepieces. Bits and bobs like old books, apothecary vases, and figurines make excellent additions to any old-fashioned tablescape. For vintage-styled flowers, we suggest using a smaller bouquet to let the other accompaniments shine.


If you are going with an elegant theme, then choose glamorous centrepieces. For ultra-grand arrangements, select larger bouquets with metallic vessels or elaborate and tall candelabra-style vases.

Interested in creating an at-home atmosphere at your elegant wedding? Rosemary plants and olive branches can make simple, but stunning centrepieces. This results in a relaxed, intimate, and refined atmosphere.

Modern Bohemian

If you want to create a dynamic bohemian design with a contemporary aesthetic, you should consider incorporating a golden branch candelabra and mid-century modern candlesticks and goblets. Greenery jars and pampas grasses are other great decor options for this theme. You can also create bohemian table centrepieces with lush greenery and richly coloured blooms. Choose equally luxurious vessels, such as goblet-style compote vases or trophy vases in copper, gold, or another metallic hue.


With options ranging from candles and greenery to seashells and objets d’art, flowerless centrepiece accents are practically limitless (and endlessly chic). Sometimes, less really is more. Go the sweet and simple route, and don’t make your table centrepieces too bulky.

For minimalist arrangements, you can use just about any vase style, so the world is your oyster. Minimalist tablescapes can be just as beautiful as their lusher counterparts. Try décor elements, such as leaves, geodes, and modern candles, to bring a moody scene to life.

Classical Modern

You can give your wedding centrepieces a modern edge by switching out the standard vases filled with flowers for terrariums. To give them a little more oomph, surround them with candles or marquee letters.

Add simple bouquets without any bells and whistles to your tables for that tried and true wedding centrepiece look (flowers don’t really need any additional accessories to look stunning). Glass bud vases and column vases work best for a classical and modern style.


If you are planning on a tropical-themed wedding, think of exotic tabletops, which pay homage to the lush scenery. Punctuate your table centrepieces with pineapple duos and monstera leaves for a fun, faraway touch.

Bring the beach to your tables with tropical flowers and greenery. Try to incorporate coral, conch shells, and sea glass into your centrepieces as well. Aquamarine goblets, anemones, and driftwood can also be used in oceanic-inspired tablescapes.

Spring Florals and Décor

Spring is all about vibrant spring blooms. Make a statement with bright, fresh florals with spring-inspired centrepieces, arches, and installations. Get inspired by real-life floral design ideas and consult with the experts at Château le Jardin to make your vision come to life.

Add a variety of candles that compliment your colour scheme, and choose different holders such as votives, cylinder vases, or candlesticks. Other décor elements that will add to your design can be guest favours like succulents or even fruit if you’re going for a tropical theme.

Fall in Love With the Warm Tones of Autumn

If autumn is your favourite season, seeing the shades of orange, fiery reds, and ochres probably brings you endless joy. Bring those warm-toned colours into your engagement party with fall centrepieces and décor.

Consider hosting the celebration in one of Château le Jardin’s flexible event spaces with access to a gorgeous courtyard to enjoy the fall foliage during your party. From rustic fall wedding centrepieces to elegant linen and accents, the striking beauty of autumn wedding décor has never been more inspiring.

More to Consider

Centrepieces that are longer with lower arrangements tend to be less expensive as they require fewer flowers and smaller vases. These arrangements make it easier for guests to engage in conversation because they are below eye level. Another reason to choose lower centrepieces is to bring the focus to other design elements, such as the place settings and the romantic architecture that Château le Jardin has to offer.

Alternatively, you could elevate your florals using tall stands or suspend arrangements from the ceiling for eye-catching décor. Tall centrepieces are luxurious and eye-catching, and will be admired as soon as guests enter the venue.

You can also add height with a few tall branches or pampas grass. If you want to keep your centrepieces a little shorter, maybe drape a few strings of pearls around your vases or stud them with jewels. The options are endless.

Evaluate the desired vibe of your wedding reception before you decide on your table centrepieces. Wedding centrepieces encapsulate everything from your wedding style to your wedding colour palette. Furthermore, beautiful centrepieces enhance the meaningful moments shared over dinner, while also ensuring your wedding album is picture-perfect.
