    Could you try it with something else under it? That black circle looks like rubber or something to me and really detracts from the natural feel.

    Try raising it up a bit b/c it look really neat from the profile view.

    I love how it is different but appropriate. I feel like it is missing something, but it might just be because it is on your counter.

    The first picture had me totally confused–I was like, “What is that?” But the second pic is really kind of awesome!

    I hate the concept of guests taking home centerpieces. I paid good money for them, hands off! Sorry, rant over.

    I love this idea though. The first pic made me skeptical but I love it all lit up!

    I voted that I liked it, but wouldn’t take it home, more because I just wouldn’t think to take home the centerpiece.  I don’t think that a mirror underneath would be appropriate because I think it would clash with the natural feeling of the candle setup.  maybe some sort of natural looking fabric or moss?

    i agree that it is unique and i do like it as well…

    i’m just wondering if the pic you took with it lit up is how it will look from a persons point of view sitting at the table??  i kinda sorta feel like the candle inside the piece gets lost a bit…

    It’s very unique. I do think something needs to be added but I am not sure what -maybe some bigger flower heads? Definitely keep the natural feel when adding to it, overall – I like it! I am such a mom for thinking this but…the rock doesn’t get hot to the touch after the candle has been on all night does it?

    I do not like it.  I think it looks chunky and does not really feel ‘natural’ but more ‘fishtank.’  You can do elegant and natural. 

     

    If you want another idea, I would love to provide one.  If you don’t want one, don’t read on.  🙂  Do you have a Hobby Lobby or Pier 1 near you?  Both have inexpensive cylinder vases, around 10-15dollars each.  You could also scour craigslist, thrift stores, etc depending on your timeline.  To get FI involved, you could have him collect river rocks from outside.  I see your wedding is in NC, you could also do sand/driftwood.  Fill with water, bunch together, and then place a floating candle on top.  You could really put anything submerged inside and it would be beautiful.  Also lets the light shine through and appears less ‘chunky.’

    I hope that I have no offended you.  I think it’s adorable that FI got so involved and is helping out so much!  That’s so sweet of him.
