10 Great Tips to help you choose a Wedding Centrepiece

Wedding centrepiece

Couples planning their wedding receptions are now spending time and money on theming their special day. Gone are the days when your effort went into choosing the food, beverage and entertainment…styling (theming) is now becoming the norm.

Table centrepieces can really help create and bring out the theme in your wedding and allow you to inject your own personalities into the décor. When you think about it during a sit-down wedding reception guests spend a fair bit of their time seated at the table so your centrepieces will definitely get noticed and admired.

 Here are 10 great tips to help you choose a wedding centrepiece

  1. Keep records of wedding table centerpiece ideas that you see in books, magazines, online and at other weddings to help you with your design.  And if you haven’t already or setup a page on Pinterest.
  2. Wedding table centerpieces should be designed with the shape of the wedding table in mind. For example, a round table will suit a single floral design placed in the centre, but a rectangular table will suit a number of smaller floral displays of varying sizes running down the centre.
  3. The size of the table centerpieces for weddings is important – too small and they can be overlooked, and too large for the table can cause a problem with restricted viewing for guests.
  4. Low wedding centerpieces will ensure guests can see each other and can converse. If you must have a tall floral arrangement, then a single tall flower or branch is better to enable guests to see each other.
  5. They should look good from any angle; so, view from all seats at the table.
  6. Table centerpieces should complement the style and colour of the china and linen.
  7. Keeping the design simple can not only keep the cost down but also, they tend to be more elegant.
  8. Remember, table centerpieces should add visual impact to your overall wedding decoration scheme.
  9. Take care not to use too strongly scented flowers as some people find them overpowering.
  10. Use your imagination!

Here are 9 great wedding centrepiece ideas to get you started.

5 Great Reasons why getting Married on a Friday is a great option

21 Jul 2015 weddings

There are 52 Saturdays in a year and in Launceston, if you plan to get married during the peak wedding season, there are only 25 Saturdays available.  Have you considered Fridays as an option to get married? Not only are there another 25 dates available in the peak wedding season but there are many other reasons why Friday weddings are a fabulous option.  Here are our top five: 

  1. Wedding vendors have greater availability on Fridays.
  2. Wedding venues are more flexible with packages, timing & options on Fridays.
  3. Friday weddings often have greater negotiation power with venues. In the case of Josef Chromy Wines our required spend to have the whole function facility is less on a Friday and we will also give you a dozen bottles of Josef Chromy NV Sparkling to use on your special day (please mention this article when booking). 
  4. Guests’ work schedules are often flexible enough to allow them to leave early on a Friday.
  5. Many honeymoon packages start on Sunday, so the day after the wedding the bride and groom can sleep in, open gifts and visit with out-of-town guests and family.

Perfect Wedding Location

13 Oct 2014 weddings

Josef Chromy Wines makes the perfect Wedding Location for both ceremony and reception.

At the end of August we had our very first Bridal Open Day, as many couples ask "can we see the function room set up?", so we thought - let's do it especially for those Bride and Grooms.

Event Avenue kindly set up the function room with different table designs to suit the latest style fashions with the LOVE sign in the background and a ceremony set up on the lawn. It all looked stunning and we had Chris Young Photography available on the day to take some fantastic photos which we are happy to share with you. Alan Gogoll - winner of The Pure Bride Industry Awards - Best Wedding Entertainment  was also playing in the background to set the scene. To top off this wonderful day, Phil from Relbia Lodge was onsite to promote Relbia Lodge - the prefect wedding accommodation - only a very short walk away.

If you missed out, don't worry check out our wedding pinterest board for more photos and no doubt we will have another Bridal Open Day next year (date to be confirmed).
