Include a mix of high and low florals into your wedding tablescape to allow the eye to wander, but also allow for conversation among guests.

Thinking outside the box can be magical too, so why not spring for unexpected wedding table arrangements like boxwoods, lemon branches, or even a bayleaf runner?
