Gabriela and Sam met in 2019 when they both worked together at an advertising agency. After months of hardly ever interacting in the office, they joined coworkers for Friday night karaoke. The next morning, Gabriela woke up to a text from Sam asking her to go to the Central Park Zoo later that day. Remembering the effortless unfolding of their relationship, Gabriela says, “Sam and I knew immediately that we wanted to continue to see each other. There was no ‘what are we?’ stage. One day we were single and the next day we were together. It felt right and we just went for it. As they say, ‘when you know, you know.’”

Distinctive, dynamic, and versatile come to mind when thinking about the table decor ideas that we are going to highlight. Trading out the single centerpiece, grouped arrangements offer endless design and styling opportunities for your wedding reception. Typically composed of three or more small arrangements, they can feature a floral recipe evenly distributed through the composition or one type of flower in each vase, exuberant color or a monochrome palette, vessels of different sizes and shapes or a uniform collection. Whether your wedding style is classic and sophisticated, contemporary chic, or whimsical garden, the creative possibilities using grouped arrangements are limitless.

When it comes to dreaming up show-stopping wedding table decor, we tend to think of sky-high, blooming displays or bountiful florals that cascade onto the floor. While bud vase centerpieces may not be the first thing that comes to mind, the impact that these small arrangements have on creating a captivating tablescape should not be underestimated. It’s all about styling – these petite beauties can be presented alone or in clusters, with taper candles or votives, and with luxurious fabrics or natural accents. Whether your aesthetic is classic elegance, natural romanticism, or modern chic, we’ve rounded up pretty ideas for using bud vases in your wedding centerpieces.

Rectangular, also referred to as ‘communal’ or ‘farmhouse,’ is a popular type of table shape used in Real BB Weddings. Similar to their round counterpart, rectangular tables seat 8 to 10 guests and typically measure eight-feet by 42-inches. We often see rectangular tables used in a mix-and-match reception layout, either with circular or banquet seating. We do want to point out that while rectangular encourages a relaxed and ‘familial’ atmosphere, socializing can be limited where guests may end up talking to the person sitting next to them. From a floral designer’s standpoint, what is so appealing about this type of table is how it offers ample surface for a variety of centerpiece styles and decor. It also wins major points for versatility and can be set up in the dining room of a private estate or in a chic industrial space. From lush, romantic garlands to posh and modern arrangements, here are beautiful centerpiece ideas for rectangular tables culled from the Real BB Wedding archives.

Congratulations! After months of meetings, phones calls, and emails, you and your wedding planner (if you have one) have mapped out the dining space in painstaking detail to determine the seating layout of your reception. Now it’s time to make an appointment with your florist to design the floral decor that will underscore the tone of your wedding and pull together the room. When we first talk with clients, we go over their desired wedding style, color scheme, favorite flowers along with any images they have pinned and saved for inspiration. At this point, they have a good sense of the shape, size, and layout of their tables with the most popular being round, rectangular and banquet. This information is important because certain types of centerpieces pair best with each kind of table.
