I’m constantly second-guessing my centerpiece decision because there’s no other wedding that has the same combination so I’m not positive what it’ll look like. My colors are dark grey and light pink.
First picture: A picture from my venue with the same linens that I will be using. I will be using the mirors and votive candles that are provided by the venue.
Second picture: I was always positive that I wanted candelabras and I still am. Mine will be similar. They’ll be a little shorter with 5 glass-encased candles. I will be using these for half of the tables with the square mirror, votive candles, and pink rose petals around the base.
Third & fourth pictures: I photoshopped the 3rd because the mirror made it confusing. My florist suggested these for the other half of the tables. These will be on the square mirror (if they fit), surrounded by votive candles, and pink rose petals are the base as well.
My mom thought we should change the roses out with floating candles because she thinks candlelight looks stunning in a night reception – which I totally agree. However, I already have the candelabras so I was wondering if it would seem “too much” to have floating candles as well. Should I keep the floating roses? Or should I nix the whole glass candlestick concept and use a low, floral arrangment with the candelabras?

I like the flowers. I think it will be a nice touch. Maybe a lower votive on the tables that have the flowers?
I have those exact candle holders on my dining room table, and never thought to float a flower in them instead…. I may have to steal that idea.

The glass candlesticks are really cute but I was mainly wondering if I needed to incorporate more flowers. Even more so than that, I was wondering if I should alternate between tall-ish (candelabras) and something low.

Maybe use the aqua gems with a floralyte under the roses would be beautiful!

They are all pretty, but maybe stay away from the centerpieces that will keep people at the same table from seeing each other without contorting their necks or bodies.

Well I was thinking that on the candelabras, the guests would be at stem-level and it wouldn’t interfere. Does anyone have any experience with candelabras at a wedding?

Your candelabra will be fine. They will not interfere with site lines.
I can’t tell how tall the stemmed containers with the floating roses are. If they will block site lines, I might consider choosing a lower alternative. You could still use the roses in a lower vase with maybe a floralyte underneath to make your mom happy.
Something like this:
only using a low crystal bowl like this:

Thanks! I think I have a general idea of how the low floral arrangments would look. On the knot, people have been by far voting floral the most with a lot also voting for the glass candlesticks with floating rose. Here, everyone is voting for the floating roses and not many have voted for low floral. I think I’m a little more indecisive than when I posted this lol. On the bright side, at least I know that everyone doesn’t hate the glass candlesticks.
