    I think it will be fine. If you are worried about the centerpiece not looking full enough in the table or something like that why don’t you just buy some rose petals and toss them around the centerpiece?

    $500. for how many and what kind of candles? From the florist? You can get them yourself for way cheaper if you’re worried about it. If you have a  Dollar Tree around, you can get votives and votive holders that will work.

    The staff? That’s what we did. The candles were set up and left and they lit them at the appropriate time. Not a big deal, so I’d ask if its possible for them to handle it for you.

    I just saw the idea of candles that you have. What about votives? They cost a lot less.

    Don’t get sucked in by the “but it would be so pretty in the photos…”!!! The important part of the day is the getting married part and the time and experience shared with your friends and families. You don’t need candles. Espeically not for %500.

    It would look lovely with candles . It will also look beautiful without.

    You definitely don’t need cylinder vases with floatng candles.

    Those are centerpieces in and of themselves.

    At this date, so close to the wedding, I wouldn’t give it another thought.

    Go to a dollar tree or a craft store if you want them, I would alternate votives with tall candles to save money. It will look fine without them of course, they are a nice touch for evening receptions but hardly necessary.

    It will still look good without candles and honestly you’re probably only going to actually use one or two centerpiece pictures and that’s if you do a scrapbook style wedding album.
