The art of simplicity can be a difficult goal to achieve. Of course, it sounds “simple” enough, but any expert will tell you that getting an understated yet sophisticated look takes a lot of thought and design know-how. However, if you decide to take a minimalistic approach to the décor of your nuptials, the outcome can be incredibly stunning as well as sentimental. Some brides and grooms prefer to create opulence in their special day elsewhere – or forgo it altogether – and select smaller arrangements for their reception tables to add a simple touch of whimsy.

Simple centerpieces are beneficial in a few different ways – the most notable being the fact that they afford your guests the ability to speak with one another across the table without a floral obstacle. These fixtures can be just as striking as their taller counterparts: fill them with alluring blooms that match the color scheme of your big day and attendees are sure to enjoy. Whether the motif of your wedding is boho-chic or big-city glamour, there are simple centerpiece designs out there for every concept.
