You’ll want to make the room/marquee where you are having the wedding breakfast look amazing. A large part of this is down to the table centres you choose. Obviously, budget is a major factor but here are some toughts that are relevant whatever your budget…

Very often, couples go for tall table centres to give height to the tables. This looks fantastic but will stop people chatting accross the tables etc. It’s also a nightmare if you want decent reportage photography during the meal as we can’t see across tables or between tables. I would certainly suggest that you dont have a tall table centre on the top table as it is much harder for you to see ‘out’ and everyone else to see ‘in’. If you have ‘dangly bits’ (sorry for the technical jargon) haging down from the table centre things will be even worse.  I tend to remove such tall table centres for the speeches,  so if you want a tall table centre try to ensure that it can be moved easily! Also, try to make sure that peoples’ eyelines are unobscured. It really helps conversations across the tables. Having said all that, a decent florist should know all about this.

I appreciate that this might sound very pedantic but it’s one of those things that can have a hidden impact.
