Last month we featured the top five photos of tall wedding reception centerpieces. Each photo displayed one unique quality that made those tall centerpieces fun for any reception. This month we're switching it up ever so slightly by bringing you the opposite. Now it's time to give you some ideas for short and medium floral centerpieces for your wedding reception! When you're discussing your wedding reception centerpieces with your florist, keep these photos in mind (or take a print-out of your favorites with you!)

This is a beautiful centerpiece perfect for a contemporary wedding reception. It's elegant, fun, stylish, sleek and sophisticated. In other words, the perfect decorations for the modern bride! These flowers have all of the components of a great wedding reception centerpiece. You have height with the foliage. You have color with the cool red roses. Plus, your eye is drawn to the cool angles formed by the grasses used to create width. Beautiful and intricate!
This is a very beautiful and elegant centerpiece which is why it's making the top 5 wedding reception centerpiece list this month. This is a picturesque centerpiece made using just three components: a small round vase, a single orchid (similar flowers will work), and a few shoots of long grass. The way they mesh together so beautifully makes it hard to imagine the careful creation of the centerpiece. Definitely a favorite!
The mirror at the bottom of these centerpieces make it perfect for a classy wedding reception. Light shimmers and bounces off of the mirrors and the square vases of the centerpieces for a beautiful and eye-catching appearance. The flowers in each centerpiece complement each other masterfully. Candles add a great touch whether lit or not. Tiny glass crystals (glass rocks will do also) add extra shimmer and sparkle. After all, what's a girl without her accessories?
Time for a dip? Not yet! First guests have to stop and enjoy the way the table centerpieces play off of the floating flower arrangements at this wedding reception. Centerpieces like these are beautiful because they really pop against a black tablecloth plus they look great with all of the other decorations. If you're in the mood for an outdoor wedding reception, consider centerpieces like these that have stand-out and blend-in appeal.
When you think of contemporary centerpieces for a wedding reception, this is one that quickly comes to mind. Red tulips form the bulk of the centerpiece (or at least the most eye-catching part). Their stems are swirled around in the standing vase along with some long grass shoots. Add a little water and you have yourself the #1 table centerpiece for the month! This arrangement is great for any wedding reception because red is the color of passionate love. Red tulips? … it's just like whispering sweet nothings in someone's ear.
