    No bow on the flask- doesn’t add anything at all to the centerpiece. It ctually takes away from the “gicness” and the “chicness”.

    I would use 3 beakers for candles around each flask.

    It’s hard to tell the proprtions between the flask and the beaker from your pics, but the 100 ml beakers do look a bit large in the only pic where you have a flask and some beakers together. Check out the height of the beakers and where they come to next to  the flask compared to your inspiration pic-top right.

    This is such a unique idea! I love it! I actually like the bow. The flask looks too plain without it. Each centerpiece should probably have 3 beakers.

    I like the mixture of beakers, so I didn’t pick a fave there… but I don’t like the bow, and I think a variation in the size of the beakers could be adorable as well. Have you thought about throwing some little Erlenmeyer flasks in as bud vases for more variability? Even a test tube rack could be cute!

    @dv3849:  I was a chem undergrad and remember doing a reaction to make the test tube turn into mercury color and it stayed. Still have a few hanging with single stems in the window. I like beaker 5 the most and would go without the bow.

    I vote for a thinner bow on the flask, and beaker #6. I love the uniqueness of your centerpieces 🙂

    @dv3849:  My view isn’t the most accepted, but it’s what I’m doing for my wedding… Why not have different collections of the multiple types on different tables? I’m not really into cookie-cutter looks, so I’m having each table look at LEAST slightly different, but with one cohesive look.

    It would look fabulous with all the different beakers with different decorations on them to be hodge-podged around tthe tables….in my opinion.

    I like the beakers that have only half glitter (1, 4, 6, I think), too much glitter looks a little overwhelming to me, especially with the candle inside. Plus, the glitter covers up the beaker’s markings (at least it looks that way in the pictures), and that takes away from the look of the beakers. The half glitter gives it an elegant and chic “wedding look”, while keeping the “geek” you want. I really love the idea to use the beakers, definitely post pictures of the final product!! Smile

    I think the beakers with the gold are pretty, my favourite is number 6. If you were trying to do the cool sciency look in the third insipriation pic I think the fact that they are beakers is a bit lost. I would either go fancy like you have now, with normal glassware, or do something very clean to show off the labware, since that’s the cool feature. Maybe glass flowers coming out the flasks would be awesome? Just a thought.
