I’ll post some pictures when I get home.  Colors are cranberry and ivory.  Don’t think there is a rule of thumb for candles and such.  Like I said I’ll let you know once I’m home and have the layouts in front of me.

Here are the two I have.  There are a few things not pictured.  I’m getting mirrors to put under the centerpieces and we also have petals that aren’t shown here.

I think your ideas are BEAUTIFUL but keep in mind with tea lights many places will require you to put the candles in sheilds for fire concerns. For 2 long tables I have 12 small candles with flowers and vases in between for our head table.  I was going to try and post a picture but apparently I can’t this morning,

I’m not sure how wide they are exactly they are the standard round tables that seat 8-10 people.  My mom went to a luncheon a while back at our venue and she did say that once you get all the plates and silverware etc, on the tables there wasn’t room for huge centerpieces. 

Here is a picture of the stuff to go on the head table

Don’t mind the flowers on the left, those were just for an example, the bridesmaid flowers will go in there (which are cranberry and ivory).  What you are seeing is one half of one of the long head tables.  The hydrangas represent the center of one table.

@smellyelly3:  Omg, what a great idea with that picture frame!!  LOVE!

 

I want to set up my centerpieces so badly, but we’re doing moss runners, and that is a freaking MESS and a half so I don’t really see the use in setting up the whole idea just yet.  We’re also doing half of the tables with large lanterns and the other half with large oblong buckets.  But of course that may change since I’m so flippin indecisive!

We’re trying to do a flower-less wedding so this is what we’re thinking of. It’ll be slightly different green books & green mugs for each. Still debating about whether we should have pearls in the cup or whether it should be something else. 

It’s sort of a representation of us both since he’s a big reader and my group of friends used to bond over Friday teas.
