Charleston Wedding Planner – Centerpieces and their prices
As a Charleston wedding planner I have worked with many brides on their centerpieces. When planning this it’s very important to take into account the size and shape of the table. Round tables are usually sixty inches in diameter and suit a larger centerpiece. They look almost naked if there isn’t something in the middle. Rectangular tables, whether they are six feet or eight feet are only 36 inches across so they suit a smaller centerpiece that won’t take up space that is needed for guests plates. Cocktail tables are only twenty four inches across and really should only have a very small centerpiece so that there is room for guests to leave their dishes and barware.
Florals are by far the most popular choice for centerpieces and can range quite a bit price depending on the flowers selected, whether they are in season and the size and intricacy of the design.
Some brides opt to forgo florals, mainly due to budgeting constraints, with lanterns and candles often being selected. One way to create “visual interest” is to mix and match the centerpieces so that they are not the same on each table, especially if a bride has fallen in love with a centerpiece that is over budget. She can mix half of the tables with the perfect centerpiece and half with a centerpiece she likes but is more cost conscious.
Floating candle centerpiece $10 (Single & Cluster of 3). This is one of the least expensive, yet still elegant ways to decorate a table.
Silver lanterns $10 and white hurricane vases $5, rented from Charleston wedding planner Tanis Jackson. Bride provided black lanterns which held Christmas ornaments for her December Wedding.
Faux floral centerpieces. Small $5, Large $15. If you are going to use faux flowers we recommend putting them in water so guests can’t feel them. The bride received many compliments on her flowers.
Low centerpieces of hydrangea, roses and tulips in cube vase $65
Bright floral centerpieces $100
Pink manzanita provided by bride $30 charge to add flowers. Tall centerpiece with curly willow $125.
Tall floral and feather centerpieces $150
As a Charleston wedding planner I have many creative ideas for centerpieces and other ways to create a beautiful wedding.
