50 Floral Wedding Centerpiece Ideas We Love

Photo: Kate Osborne Photography

Let's face it: Deciding how to decorate your wedding reception can carry just as much weight as the ceremony itself. While most couples opt for floral arrangements placed in the center of their tables, the options abound. How can you decide on the right decorations for your celebration's color scheme and theme?

There are a few decisions you'll have to make before settling on one or more centerpiece designs. First, you'll need to decide what palette you want to work with. Second, you'll need to choose what medium you're using, whether that means picking flowers or non-floral alternatives. The season can play a role in the selection process, as not all blooms are available year-round. The vibe of the rest of your event also matters—you probably don't want modern centerpieces if the rest of your affair is vintage-inspired.

To help you find the perfect fit for your wedding, we've rounded up a list of 50 different centerpiece ideas (like the pink-and-white option seen here). Click through to discover new options and get inspired for your own décor.
