Tips for Selecting the Best Wedding Centerpieces for Upscale Wedding Receptions

Wedding centerpieces provide a focal point to your wedding reception table and increasingly, they are doubling as gifts for a lucky table guest. Deciding on the perfect wedding centerpiece is often a design challenge, however, fine glass art is an incredible choice. The best thing is that glass art works come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and functions.

Glass Artworks as Wedding Centerpieces

When it comes to centerpieces, an upscale wedding is truly complete with fine glass art pieces originally crafted for your event that will also translate well as a home decor piece.

Glass Vases, Bowls, and Candle Holder Art Pieces

Imagine a gorgeous glass vase as your wedding centerpiece in fine glass art. The beaty of these means little or no flowers need be incorporated. Often they can stand alone or be highlighted with simple accents. Fill them with confetti (smaller ones) or surround them with soft mini-candles!

Glass bowls are wedding centerpiece ideas with endless possibilities. A new favorite is to fill them with water and place floating tea light candles or better yet, water activated diamond lights. These elegant centerpieces will translate well and fit into most home decors!

Candle holders in glass art are truly unique centerpiece ideas. Bold yet warm, glass centerpieces allow you to light up each table for the ultimate focal point for the ultimate reception table setting. Sprinkle reflective confetti lightly to surround the candle holder for a shimmering effect.

In each case, selecting the type of glass is important, as is the color and size.

Glass Art Type and Color

Murano glass art works come in brilliant colors and become gorgeous focal points for your reception tables. These hand blown glass pieces are more art yet maintain high function and practicality. In terms of color, anything is possible. Select a color to match or for fabulous contrast. Despite the term “white wedding”, bold dark colors – including black – often make a big impact and add drama to your occasion.

Bigger glass centerpieces do not necessarily mean better. What you are really going for is scale and to ensure proportion is achieved just as much as the color and shape of the glass. Many wedding planners and designers who have a knack for staging gorgeous wedding venues and spectacular table settings do just this. It’s the combination of color contrast and achieving balance. Glass vases, bowls and centerpieces are often at the heart of any great wedding centerpiece and the focal point of the table – and conversation!

When it comes to wedding centerpieces, highlighting glassware will surely be a winner for your wedding or special reception event.
