Beautiful Centrepieces for your Summer Wedding

Table centerpieces are large focal point at a wedding and set the tone of the occasion. Whether you're after something grand and fabulous or minimal and simplistic, it’s a great opportunity to get creative. Wedding reception flowers make beautiful wedding centrepieces, work as great focal points and decorate interiors beautifully. A little help from a London florist will assist you in achieving your desired style and depending on the look you’re after, added accessories can be used to achieve different looks. Here are some wedding flower arrangement ideas for inspiration.

Vintage. Modern flower arrangements can often be too refined and coordinated. The perfect vintage wedding flower look is rustic, glamourous and has a garden feel to it. Your wedding flowers and decorations can be arranged with more of a personalised look. For a vintage feel, glass or coloured bottles work beautifully for storing wedding flowers, they’re quirky, cost effective and look delightful. Whether they’re used to hold single flowers such as large peonies or arrangements of garden roses or sweet peas, they make wonderful vintage arrangements, and are sure to add edge to your table display.

Rustic. For a casual looking centrepiece, bursting with character, opt for wooden tables and clear or coloured jam jars or even a vase to house your flower arrangements along with plenty of greenery. Using similar flowers to your bridal bouquet is a great way to continue your wedding theme throughout your big day. Wildflowers such as roses, peonies, stock, baby’s breath, Astilbe and dusty miller are a fitting choice and decorate vases and jam jars beautifully for a rustic affair.


Grand statements. Candles work great for adding romance and intimacy to your big day and are an inexpensive way to add elegance. For a lasting statement, go big with a centrepiece that will be remembered and decorate your tables with large candles with luxuriant stands for the ultimate wow factor. Candles add charm and work as striking wedding decorations. Match with similar vases to accent your table flowers beautifully.

Minimalistic. There’s beauty in the simple things. If you’re after a classy and simplistic affair, a good vase can add character and enhance the look of floral arrangements. Glass vases add a clean, contemporary and minimalist look to centrepieces. A square glass vase looks great lined with Ti-leaves are filled with pebbles, rocks, water and simple flowers such as Calla-lilies.

Colour contrast. It’s nice to have matching flowers, but just as great is a centre piece that stands out, one that’s vibrant and memorable. Pairing contrasting colours or various shades of a single colour, are a great way to add depth and dimension to wedding flower arrangements and add charm to your reception.

Simplistic. A well set out table with an an attractive focal point may be all you need for to create a charming centrepiece. White candle lanterns surrounded with elegant flowers such as baby’s breath, look simplistic yet sophisticated.

There are so many options to choose from when decorating your reception other than choosing wedding floral designs, the best centrepieces are one are personalised and say something about you.
