Your wedding will likely be the biggest party you’ll ever throw—making it the perfect time to take the phrase “larger than life” literally. One of the most fun parts of planning a wedding is expressing yourself through your theme, style and décor—and this includes flowers. Your centerpieces play a major role in adding a personal flair to the ambience of your reception. Beautiful floral arrangements are always a major focal point during any wedding reception. If you want to ensure that your centerpieces make a lasting impression on your guests, it’s best to go tall. While smaller compote centerpieces are gorgeous in their own right, vertical arrangements are unexpected additions to wedding tables and are a sure way to wow your attendees as soon as they walk into the room. And the best part about these lofty arrangements? They can suit any wedding style. Check out these tall wedding centerpieces and get inspired.

Your wedding day is a celebration with loved ones, so it’s only natural to want to include those friends or relatives who’ve passed away before you get to say “I do.” Your inclusion of a deceased relative can be as subtle as a symbolic white rose in your bouquet or as public as a moment of silence at the ceremony, and we rounded up a few more ways below. It’s also a good idea to check in with any close relatives who may be sensitive to the death—from there, you can decide how you’d like to honor them without turning the wedding into something that feels like a heavy memorial service.
