    I just have to say- I'm impressed that you are doing your centerpieces and bringing everything down so I just give you "props" for that.

    I'm really bad at that sort of stuff but I do think sunbride was on to something with the large plate/sq.fabric idea...

      ok, what about this...

      Keep the tall vases, put a purple candle in them, leave the purple votives around them, use a bunch of petals, and lay the feathers on the table?

        well thank you :o) i am actually having a local wedding though...i wont be traveling anywhere until my honeymoon.

        i normally like being creative and doing stuff like this but for some reason i just cant get it together with these cp's. i feel like i am spending way too much time stressing over them.

        SOO i am thinking that i might use the hall's cp that they provide. they are about 6-7 inches high, frosted oil lamps. thats it. HOWEVERRR im thinking that with the room decorated, the table linens done up, maybe it wont look so bad and plain like i imagine. kwim? it will work out either way.

          this has nothing to do with centerpieces, but while cruising around on etsy, i found this- Etsy :: redrubyrose :: Gold silk peacock feathers - luxury clutch bag
          goes with your theme!

            I would say go with a longer more leaner vace...sit it maybe on some mirror or something and then leave the candles maybe some rose petals and a thin manzanilla branch

              Trying using a couple more of those flowers, and then maybe just use a ribbon that matches that rest of you wedding colors to wrap around the vase.

                You could try taking a thick ribbon, the color of your wedding accent, and wrapping it around the vase. Then you can take a thinner piece of ribbon and wrap that around the stems of your flowers, try adding a few more flowers too.

                Jac - if you love the votives, I would shorten things - otherwise you have a low thing and a very tall thing.

                I love the feathers - what about some tight white roses or something with the feathers sticking up a few inches and all around them? Not sure that would work with the vases you have, but it might

                That being said,
                I really love tall centerpieces - it lets people talk under them.

                Happily married since 2008

                  That does suck you can always put a candle in the vases or a floating candle for extra light. I know stretching it :) I do love the purple votives they cast a pretty light

                    Jac - you're so implusive! I can't beleive you returned the floralytes already! I think frosting the vases could've given the more subtle lighting like you wanted. but you got some great suggestions. If you added kind of a placemat, that cuold pull the look together. They could be really easy to make, have Ter do it! Or I could if you found the fabric. We could do that together.

                    Hmmm, I was goign to say more and am blanking...
