I think what you are doing is plenty. I wouldn’t do anymore. At the moment, I change my mind a lot, I think we are going to do the ostrich feather towers. I am just not sure what, if anything, to put with them. I am thinking some sort of flower arrangement.

that sounds lovely!  it depends on how wide the tables are tho… do you know how wide they are?  the last thing you want it alot of empty space.  we had a banquet table as our head table, to give you an idea it was situated in the middle of all the round guest tables, and the wedding party and their dates sat around all 4 sides of the table with me and my husband in the middle.  our table was 4ft. x 16ft, and 4 ft wide is pretty wide!  so we filled the space with lots and lots of low floral arrangements in mix-matched milk glass vases.  we also had gold chargers at each place setting, all the silverwear, with water glasses and champagne glasses.  it really gives a more formal look when the table is filled up like that.  but if you have the skinnier banquet tables that are 2 or 3 ft wide, then you’ll be fine with only lanterns and votives.  I always feel like when we walk into a wedding and the tables are empty except for a week small centerpiece then it just gives a let-down kind of feeling.  so as long as they don’t feel like that then you’ll be just fine.

I may be in the minority but I really think less is more when it comes to decorating, especially with the tables. It’s annoying when there’s so much stuff on the table that you can’t see the other people sitting across from you and you carely have room for your food. I think what you have planned sounds beautiful. We are doing rounds and just plan on one low flower arrangement per table and votives that the venue provides. I saw our same venue set up the same way and it looked elegant and classy without being overdone.
