I plan on doing something similar to this but I plan on using 4 frames to make it more like a lantern and then having 2 lanterns per table surrounded by votives and flower petals

I don’t have pictures yet.


I am using laterns with tall candles in them.

We’re going with a kind of industrial, metal, found art/object theme for our wedding. No florals, just metal and mercury glass and things. So this required us to put our thinking caps on.

These are what my mother and I found:

I love these. They come in packs of four and in two different shapes (cubes and pyramids) and bendable wire so that you can literally build your own sculptures using as many or as few as you like. Each table with have a unique sculpture and mercury glass votives. . . aaaaand most likely something else – haven’t gotten that far yet. . .

The two family tables will have round mercury glass vases (with tall branchces), just to create more levels in the space. We’ll have our own sweetheart table (no head table) and I haven’t figured out what we’ll do for that yet either. . .

I hope this gives you a couple ideas for your tables!!!

@MrsB2012:  I love that idea with the sheets of music. What about candles with glass cylinders with sheet music etched or painted on the glass.

You can use a small square wooden box painted navy blue, or a square glass vase painted navy blue on the inside and use paper flowers.

These ones are made from sheet music-these are  from an Etsy vendor


or paper flowers made with book paper, sheet music and buttons

votives wrapped with sheet music

rolled sheet music

@julies1949:  OMG the rolled sheet music in a vase is AMAZING! its classy and elegant and personal and beautiful! love it! well done!

My wedding/reception is on a yacht so we’ll be doing a sort of message in a bottle centerpiece:

the bottles will be clear and have some sand & baby shells inside and the round placemats will be different colors… possibly champagne gold or beige to go with the shells.

then the table numbers will be on the bottle’s label with this caption:

Ours will say “Please leave a message in the bottle for Mark & Kimmy to open on their *1-22* year anniversary” (because we have 22 tables).

The place setting will have the menu along with the pens and scrolls for the guests to write on and put in the bottle and after the ceremony we will keep them in a wine rack to open on our anniversaries!

I’m SUPER excited! Laughing

I’m looking for the perfect runner/placemats now and collecting clear wine bottles but I’ll update with the true mock up (and hopefully not such a crappy cellphone pic lol)
