@Miss Mauverick:  I agree, it needs color, but man it’s gorgeus. That plum with that green would look great.

Maybe make one of the candles that plum color, and then add a plum ribbon around another lantern?

I agree, maybe introduce some plum/lavender?  Love your concept!

I think it is beautiful as is. Sometimes simplicity is the best. If you want to add some color you could tuck in some large mums in one of your colors.

Place the flowers in florist tubes and tuck them in close to the lanterns, much as the succulents are in the pic below.

I would use the same color for all three candles. Instead of white you could use the pale pink or blush color if you preferred for the candles.

You might also be able to find pebble candles. Most venues would require them to be contained in a votive holder.

That looks beaaauuutiful!  Very close to my theme, but different colors.  You could try putting some cool sticks in with the moss to add some interest, and then you could also do plum glass marble thingies in the lanterns around the candles.  Or, put a plum ribbon around the biggest pillar candle.

Love your concept! I agree with adding a ribbon. I also like the pic Julies posted with the succulent.

I really like this. I’m totally digging rustic wedding themes lately and these make me drool.

@Miss Mauverick:  Cannot wait to see the new mock up pics.  What you have done thus far looks amazing but I agree — a few pops of color and it’ll be out of this world.  Gorgeous idea!
