You only really need one, but more the merrier, I say. I'm talking about getting one major floral statement piece for your wedding. Typically, I would say that this is for the reception, but it could also be for an entryway to a ceremony.
Besides your thematic design, you want part of it to include a single statement piece. Doing this with florals is a stunning, dramatic way of bringing in freshness and beauty to the wedding. Your guests will want to take pictures with it in the background!
In this picture, scattered votives light up a grand floral statement piece that beckons guests to enter the reception and enjoy the night. You'll want to make this a priority when meeting with your floral designer. I would like to caution you to steer clear of your typical florist shop for things like this. You want to partner with a designer that specifically does event florals because the prep and planning of event florals is completely different than cash and carry flowers.
