@brokeninnj:  What does your venue look like? 

I picked my centerpieces based on the venue. My venue had high ceilings so I had to have high centerpieces. This centerpiece would not fit my venue at all. I can see this centerpiece working if you are having a barn/country style wedding

If your wedding is in a hall and is formal…ill be honest im not a fan

@brokeninnj:  Honestly my first instinct is I sooooo want to knock it over. Sorry, kid at heart.

@brokeninnj:  I would worry about them getting knocked over by guests and shattering.

Why not get a similar but safer look with wine bottles?

I am DIYing mine for less than $10 each using this inspiration pic:

love the starfish and seaglass - great colors

My first thought was that those would be really hard to talk around. And very easy to tip over. I’d do a lower version with only 1 layer of glasses.

To be honest, I’m not in love with it. It looks like a bunch of cups with a candle on top, which isn’t all that elegant.

There are definitely other cheap candle centerpiece ideas that I think would work better & look more romantic.

Definitely would need to be lower, but cool concept!

I don’t think it looks as “chic” as you’d want it to. It’s a little “too DIY” if that’s a thing.

I made the little DIY cake tray idea using a wine glass glued to a plate- It fell apart very quickly… not what you want to happen with lit candles.

Sorry, those do not look nice and elegant to me at all.   What about simple cylinders with flowers and floating candle type centerpiece?

I like the idea of the bottles with candles instead. I went to a wedding once where guests threw napkins back and forth over the candles for fun and if they had centerpieces like this they would have been knocked over instantly aha.

I agree with PP. Those would break so fast, and they’re too tall for people to talk through.

Does your venue allow open flame?  I’ve heard of many that don’t allow candles at all.

Those also look like they’d tip over easily.

This woud cost you probably $10 a centerpiece (which is hw much yur original would be when you think about it.)
