You ladies have been so ridiculously helpful so far and I was hoping to get your advice once more… I’d like to do something with the vases on the tabletops… Our colors are navy and copper. I found navy pintuck linens (in the WB classifieds!) We found stemmed votives for really cheap and are painting them copper. I really love the idea of a glowy/warm/romantic atmosphere since our wedding will be in winter. What do you all think would accomplish this best? The images below are just to give an idea.
Clear vases with simple floating candles
Frosted vases with floating candles:
Glitter vases with a candle in the bottom:
Input is greatly appreciated!

I like the frosted vases, but I think the ones in the picture look too frosted. A slightly frosted vase seems nice and wintery to me, though!

I like the frosting it looks very elegant, the glitter looks very casual.

I agree with the second choice, but not as opaque in the frosted-ness… haha I think something that lets the light through a little more would look best.

I think if you were to float a candle in the frosted vase you would not get the same effect as in the picture. I also think it is a little too frosted.

I would go with a clear vase.
They look stunning on tables:

@HappilyEverAfter54: Thank you so much for the feedback, just because I’m a nut, could you tell me why? Really it’s out of curiosity… You don’t think think they’ll be too simple?

I’m a frosted fan, I think it adds an elegance however clear is pretty, creates more of a glow with many are lit but I think the frosted ties in with a winter wedding.

I think if you want to use the clear vases, you can put colored pebbles or marbles in the bottom, not too many, fill with water, about half way, and have the candle float on top of the water sightly a bit higher than the pebbles, so there is water between the candles and the pebbles. Wish I could send you the picture from my mind!

I think the frosted candles make it feel the most romantic and warm. I think you notice the warm light more when it’s a little covered up – kinda like lingerie is sexier than naked.
