I like the candles with the grapes(?) and I really love that cork thing.  Awesome!

I like the candles in the wine bottles!  I would probably put the grape clusters around the base of the bottles instead of hanging from the neck… makes the bottle look middle-heavy IMO.

Have you seen the crystal grape clusters?  They would be pretty and reflect the light of the candles!

I might skip the fake grapes. Also, if the wax drips down the bottles, will it get to the doily or tablecloth? I really like the clear bottles with the candles.

Some smaller square vases with corks piled in them and tea lights on top might be a nice touch?

I think there is a bit too much going on with these centerpieces.  I really like the ideas and I love that each center piece will be set up a bit different, but think you need to go with the more is less concept.  Also, does your venue allow open flames?  A lot won’t and if that’s the case, you won’t be able to have the candles in the wine bottles.

I would suggest having only 1-3  wine bottles with lights/flowers/candles per table.  You might be able to get away with 4 or 5 if that’s all you have on the table (no other votives or glasses or large clumps of grapes).  I would then add votives and/or a few clumps of grapes (at the base of the glasses and not hanging off). 

I don’t like the wreaths hanging off the wine glasses, but I think it would be pretty to wrap 3 bottles in a wreath (at the base).  You could also trying twine or ribbon arond the neck of wine bottles.

I would also make that AWESOME cork thing it’s own centerpiece.  I feel like it gets lost when you have the wine bottles all around it.  I would do the cork and the wine glasses with the candles and maybe a few votives. 

What are you doing for table numbers?

I agree with the less is more… I would do just the wine bottles with calla lilies and a few votive candles.

also – i saw this and it would be super easy to do!

@MLDoddie:  I agree with you – this, to me, looks better. Less is more.

 

Not diggin’ the fake grapes and whatnot. Reminds me of my grandma’s house 😛 I love the rest of the decor you have chosen, though!

@JOPetersen:  there is too much going.  i think it would be great if it was simplified a bit.  the doily conflicts with the look you are going for.

i really like the ideas that @MLDoddie:  posted.  they are lovely.

Oops!

When I said “..more is less,” I meant “less is more.”
