I think it looks great! I’d like to see a picture of it lit with the lights dimmed…that might give a much better sense of how it will look at your reception. A few small pink crystals sprinkled between the candles might look nice as well.

I’m really thinking of doing something like this for our centerpieces, too, so I love seeing the examples! : )

If you want to incorporate pink, I think the pink crystals will be hidden by the darkness of the blue charger. You could try tying pink ribbons around the candles or if you really want to make use of the pink crystals, sprinkle them on the table around the charger and not on the charger. Your centerpiece is really cute, simple and contemporary, I likey!

hahah hilarious!

actually, i don’t think you’re colorblind. i really did think it was blue and i’m partial to that (incorrect) color scheme because my wedding colors are blue (aqua), pink (fuschia), white (ivory), champagne and gold.

sweeney2be,

go to walmart and check out the wedding section.  They have clear crystals that look like uncut diamonds.  Place them around the candles.  When the candles are lit, you will gasp with their beauty!  If walmart is out, try Michael.

Trust me on this!

i think a few petals sprinkled around it would be pretty…..but not sure if that fits in with the simple design you are going for…..

i’m partial to the petals…..planning on doing them with my candle centerpieces as well.

I’m curious about the three empty votives.  Will those have candles in them on the big day?  If not, I would fill those with the pink crystals.

you could try adding some pink sand or something of the like into the votives perhaps to have an addition of pink.

if you want to incorporate pink – instead of the white candles, why dont you use pink wax beads (not a pink candle but the little beads) and stick a wick in it and call it a day ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ :)???

I’d say you could give rid of 3 of the votives and it will still look full and add something pink.  I like the pink crystal idea in with the votives.  maybe sand but you would have to play with it. 

Otherwise the chargers look cool and the overall display looks simple and clean.  I think color will add wow – and you’ll be good to go.
