Tall Centerpieces That Will Take Your Reception Tables to New Heights

When it comes to your wedding décor, the term "go big or go home" might just be the perfect way to describe your inspiration. After all, it is the biggest party you'll ever throw. What better way to "go big" than with tall centerpieces? Larger-than-life floral arrangements can be simply breathtaking, and they're sure to have guests talking long after the big day is over.  Not to mention, there's a type of tall arrangement suited to every couple and wedding style. You can find those packed with beautiful blooms, made entirely of greenery greenery, or created without any florals at all—some brides and grooms prefer a less traditional centerpiece, like an array of candelabras with glowing candles.

If you're nervous about towering arrangements limiting conversation between your guests, do as some of these real couples did and mix high and low centerpieces on the same tables. The result is eye-catching, will give your reception room depth, and allows for plenty of mingling. The sky is the limit!

Deep Hues

For their New Year's Eve wedding, the bride and groom chose oversized arrangements of flowers in shades of cream and eggplant, accented with plenty of lush greenery. Displayed in tall mercury glass vases, the look was perfect for their elevated holiday nuptials.

Ocean Inspiration

The décor for this intimate destination wedding was inspired entirely by the backdrop. For the two long reception tables, the bride and groom chose centerpieces of locally-sourced palm leave that could blow in the wind.

Focal Point

Centerpieces made of hydrangeas, peonies, clematis, lisianthus, and greenery popped against these otherwise neutral-colored tables. To keep everything looking interesting, low clusters of flowers were spaced in between each tall arrangement.


English Gardens

The romantic centerpieces had a just-picked vibe, perfect for the couple's romantic English garden-themed celebration.

Pink Blooms

This bride and groom picked a mix of high and low centerpieces in shades of bold pink. The tall centerpieces, made of roses, carnations, hydrangea, stock, and mums, were held in geometric clear vases.

Overflowing Florals

Doesn't this centerpiece look like it's floating? The stunning arrangement is fresh and romantic, especially with the two candles on either side. Even better, the trailing ivy draping down towards the table is a symbol of fidelity. We can't think of a better type of greenery to use in your wedding centerpieces.

Green Sculptures

To go along with the Italian vibe of this wedding, topiaries and cypress trees stood at either side of the banquet tables. Low arrangements of white flowers kept the space looking balanced.

Florals & Candles

Paired with a garland of greenery and candles that stood in clear bottles, these colorful tall centerpieces made for a major "wow" moment in the reception space.

Organic Greenery

Who says you need flowers in your centerpieces? This couple wanted a clean, modern look to their tables and got just that with arrangements of ferns, leaves, and foliage in thin glass beakers.

Romantic Candelabras

Candelabras are a great option for couples who don't want florals but do want a romantic feel to their reception.

Tree-Like Structures

This coupled wanted their guests to be surrounded by greenery, and they accomplished just that with these stunning centerpieces made of arching branches.

Minimal Centerpieces

A mix of high and low centerpieces were arranged on alternating tables to create contrast within the reception room.


High and Low Candles

A mix of brass candelabras and smaller stands held candles that illuminated the reception once night fell.


Southern Charm

These sweet centerpieces, made of garden and spray roses, hydrangea, stock, silver-dollar eucalyptus, nerine, seeded eucalyptus, Queen Anne's lace, godetia, and hypericum berries stole the show in this Southern wedding.


Pops of Color

Small arrangements of pink ranunculus stood out against these towering white and green centerpieces.


In the Spirit

For this Christmas wedding, assorted metallic ornaments filled the base of clear vases that held white blooms and branches of red berries.

Art Deco

This couple chose elegant scroll-like vessels for their gardenia and fern centerpieces. The finished product totally elevated the tablescape.

Metallic Hues

Silver candelabras held fluffy arrangements of affordable white baby's breath. They went perfect with the day's metallic theme.

Soft Touch

The groom personally arranged these centerpieces, which contained green antique hydrangea, white hydrangea, and white roses.


Unexpected Greenery

Low floral arrangements of pink and red flowers stood next to tall vases full of greenery that was, "not too fussy and wonderfully unexpected," the bride said.
