@gcassioppi:  Two thoughts:  Maybe less water in case people bump the table, and in my experience those floating candles go out after like an hour so you may want to look into either extended burns ones or floating a tea light in a glass floaty thing 🙂

The rose seems to have petals that are too big and flat. Maybe try peonies or a flower that has petals with more texture. Maybe pink carnations or runculus

Something seems awkward to me about the height differences between the floral/floating candle and the shorter votives.  My eye wants less of a drastic change – either less of a difference or something between them as a transition.

@gcassioppi:  where did you find that lace for the candles?!!? ive been looking for something like that but in black! – also, i love the idea of the multi-sized white pearls/rocks (whatever ya call them) candles are awesome (just took a second look, maybe get the 1 1/4″ votive candles to fit the candle holders) they are a bit tall), but maybe less water in the centeriece (so the flame is just at the top of the vase are are you using fake flowers or real ones the day of? maybe that plays a visual diffrence hit up a florest or grocery store and grab a few real ones and see if it makes a diffrence

I think it looks okay, but it needs more color. Is there any way to tie the turquoise in? The pale pink rose kind of blends in with the white pearls so that everything just seems like a lof of white.

Or maybe you could change the color of the pearls or lace? I know that lace can be dyed…

@FionnaCake:  What about Turquoise votives to make the white lace stand out more? 🙂

@gcassioppi:   I think you are off to a great start. I suggest:

– less water in the cylinder vase so the candle is lower than the rim of the vase

-less pearls so there is a space between them and the rose. If you used the pearls to anchor the rose, just glue it to the bottom of the vase or glue on  afishing weight to keep the rose submerged.

-shorter votive candles for the same reason as the first point.

I think the blue runner gives you enough blue.

I like it! I would use a real flower though. My florist did that for someone elses wedding and the real rose in the water made the entire centerpiece. Also, she added a colored ribbon at the top of the glass. It was so pretty!

Wow, my colors are fuschia and turquoise and my other accents are damask and diamonds! Not exactly the same but pretty close! Ha! Not to mention I am doing these exact same centerpieces. I can’t remember the username but somebody mentioned the change from short to tall centerpieces was too drastic and I agree. We are using one tall, one medium and one small.

how about a lace overlay on top of the turquoise runner?  it will soften it up a bit!
