cp254100:  I don’t like the tall pink candles. It’s too sweet-16 birthday party.

I decided to go against candles in general. I’ve been to weddings and they all go out before you sit at the table. I’m doing waterproof LED colored lights in the bottom of my vases.

Also check with venue if they allow free standing candles first. ours will only allow those in containers. I love the colors (they are mine, too). I’m not sure of the “found” vases with the modern, chic decor. It doesn’t seem to meld. Those tables are not large so stick to a small floral arrangement. Maybe floating candles with different heights and flowers in them, so you get both in less space?

I think using white vessels leaving the color to the flowers would be nice.  Then keep the candles simple in clear or white votives, TONS of them.  Clear votives are probably cheaper & more readily available.  Maybe sprinkle in some small white lanterns with cut outs – sort of Moroccan but subtle to throw some pattern of light.  Or –  I love floating candles in tall cylinders placed on window ledges around the room in ANY venue.  The light seems to bounce off the water & reflect off the window glass.  Can have big impact in a venue with a lot of windows.

I do like the silver vases but if those are going to be on tables you will need reallllllly smaller short ones so people can talk to each other.

I think mix and match vases seems more vintage than modern.
