@Nerina:  I’ve been to some weddings where the bride had these as her centerpieces and I can tell you that they look very elegant. Great choice. 🙂 I found some pics to give you some examples.

@Nerina:  Ohh, you didn’t mention that you were looking to buy them I just assumed you wanted to see what they looked like at weddings. Sorry

@Nerina:  Maybe you can find some used ones? I know there is a classified board here, and other websites where brides sell items they are no longer using for their wedding. That might be a good place to start looking.

Stunning and elegant 🙂 just make sure your venue allows lit candles before purchasing all these items!

@Nerina:  anything with crystals attached is going to be pricey.  Here is what I did. 

 

i bought these 5 arm candleabras at my local craft store.  They are very hard to find, even on the Internet. I paid $13.00 a piece. I spray painted them silver. I drilled small holes in the arms and I hung acrylic crystals that I bought in bulk on eBay.  I think once they have the real flowers placed, and candles lit, and the ballroom lit up, and the tables set and my guests there, they will work just beautifully. You obviously wouldn’t use real floral. Just showing you how I saved money on candleabras. Have fun!

 

The floral picture is before I hung the crystals. My florist needed to measure the bowl.

@Nerina:  I think these might be *just* the wrong high.  Just right that middle ground between not low enough to look over and not high enough to look under, such that they will obstruct the view of the table.  I think ideally, you’d want something either under 7-8″ or over like 22″ inches. 

I think the ones you have pictured are in the 13 – 15″ range.  Take a ruler or yardstick on a standard size table (30 inches high), that hight (13-15″) is RIGHT at eye level.  

Even if you see pictures where they LOOK nice on the table, which I’m sure they will, IMHO you really want to avoid a centerpiece height that will obstruct guests view across the table.

We used candleabras (and flowers).  Here’s a pic of our reception…our candleabras are def not the style you are looking for but the overall look I think might help.  Very romantic!  Ours were also in the $20 dollar range from Michael’s but we got them with coupons so saved about 40% on each one…we had to go to several Michaels to find enough 🙂

@Nerina:  We’re not using those exact ones, but these are ours…

 

 

Ours were only $50 each so I was a little worried about what the quality would be like. Honestly, its fine. They aren’t super heavy duty, but they will work perfectly for a wedding. We actually took off the gems, spray painted them a different color, and then put the gems back on.
