@Melex:  Personally I think that all of that is a bit much. Would having just one per tatook look too bare? I think each one looks very pretty though!

I would probably go with one vase of flowers and several votives. It’s hard to tell how big those vases are though. Maybe you could ask the venue how much room they typically have in the middle? We had 10 person tables and there was not much room after everything was put out. You have to think about food plates, salad plates, salt, pepper, water glasses, coffee cups, alcohol glasses, etc.

I agree with previous poster that it’s too much. More isn’t always better–sometimes it’s just more.

They look really good but I think they’re at the awkward height of not being able to see or talk to the person across the table from you. 

Could you maybe get rid of the vases and add the bling straight into flowers somehow?

@Melex:  

How big is that table square that the vases are sitting on, and how tall are the vases?

I think they look really nice together, but estimating size based on the candle, if you have all 3 vases, it’s going to be too crowded for a 60 inch round table. Maybe try the 2 lower vases and the candle, or one vase and 2 candles?

Yes, they’re too much. I’d do one flower ball surrounded by votives if it were me. Less is more. More is just clutter.

@Melex:  If that’s a 12×12 square, then it probably is ok. Will they be sitting on a tray or a table runner?

@Melex:  Sounds very pretty! If you still want candles, a few small tealight holders near the vases should be fine too!

@Melex:  I don’t think it’s too much at all. It looks really pretty to me:)

They just look shorter then. I take back the end of my comment and vote they’re good
