Hello bees! I’m having a budget wedding which requires some DIY. I worry that my guests are going to make fun of my decor – I’m not that crafty really.
I am having a little bit of trouble with my centerpieces. I feel like something may be missing. The wedding is slightly country themed (rustic details, bluegrass band!). Our colors are apple green, navy, and brown, inspired by this: Click.
The centerpieces will be on green fabric circles. A large mason jar will be in the middle, with two smaller mason jars with pebbles and a candle inside each on the side. The chalkboard will be used for the table numbers. These are not the flowers I intend to use – they are just leftovers from my bridal shower.
Is there anything you would add? Thanks!
On the fabric circle but without pebbles
Without the fabric circles (I try not to take them out because then I will have to iron them again!)

futuremrsslp: I’m guessing by the fact that you left the lids on the smaller mason jars, that the candles are LED. Many venues forbid real candles. The lids are jarring (no pun intended) because you would never have a candle in an enclosed jar.
If you use the mason jars you must remove the lids. If you want to use the mason jars, I would use smaller ones, like the one on the left in this pic.
I suggest that the centerpiece would look better if flanked by 3 clear glass votives. Odd numbers are restful to the eye and the scale will be better.
Yummi Candles has a sale on now- 72 votives and votive holders for $20.

julies1949: Thank you for your feedback! Very helpful 🙂 Yes they are LED – my venue doesn’t allow real candles.

Try trimming the stems on your hydrangeas to make the height more consistent. How about some burlap ribbon around the mouth of the tall jar? You could tie it into a bow and put some buttons or charms in the middle. 🙂

Moncheri: We will definitely be having shorter flowers – these are just some I had around the house. I love the ribbon idea! Thank you! 🙂
