I haven’t figured mine out yet! I need inspiration! I am not having dinner, it’s an elegant grey/purple evening wedding in early october. I want romantic, sophisticated elegance… My venue is an art gallery in an old historical building… I’m not allowed candles.
I’m planning on gunmetal grey silk table clothes with a grid type pattern on it.. like piping? not sure how to describe it. And maybe silver candelabras with battery candles? I’ve seen the same thing at my venue before (decor place told us a wedding similar to ours was being done and to check it out) and it was gorgeous… But I’d love some inspiration!!! Show me yours!!

@MrsPhilly: I love the sound of the candleabras. Hoping other bees who did similar can help.

Here is mine from my October wedding. Colors were black and white with silver.
Flowers for every table were out of my budget and I didn’t wat to DIY them.

@MrsPhilly: My wedding is still well over a year away, but my plan is to have a cake at each table as a combination centerpiece/table number kind of like this. If you aren’t having dinner tho, cake probably won’t be as easy a solution.

Our wedding was also in October, and these were our centerpieces.

Ours were pretty simple. We have a long estate table and small arrangements going down the center. Each arrangement was grouped in 3 with 1 medium flower arrangement and small hydrangea in a very small vase and a candle in a vase filled with petals

I loved my centerpieces, they were so pretty with the candles lit and in the darkened room. The only problem now is that I have them all in storage at my mother’s house. I did paint the numbers and was able to sell them on craigslist.

@Day_In_The_Life: last year I brought a the shattered glass goblets to make centerpieces similar to yours…until I found out my preferred venue didn’t allow candles, even if they are contained! So I returned the goblets. Now that we are considering a different venue I might go back to my original idea.

@MrsPhilly: Our colors were gunmetal grey, white, and blue.. and our flowers were white lilies and blue dendrobium orchids.
Half our tables had floating blue orchids and floating candles in shallow bowls with clear crystals underneath…
And the other half had cylinder vases with submerged blue orchids with a floating candle on top:
The blue dendrobium orchids have a lovely deep purple in them, as well! They’d go perfectly with your color scheme. 🙂
You could do submerged orchids without the candles, still beautiful!!
Or you could do something with a submersible light, which look beautiful!!
