That’s cute! I really like where you are going with this centerpiece. I was thinking maybe you can add a few more twigs or something to  minimize the gap between the wreath and the candle holder. I think it looks great though!

I would suggest maybe mirroring the decor on the opposite side then filling to two other sides with a couple pieces of eucalyptus…I think it would help make the piece look good from all angles and it will help fill it in.  I am not sure what kind of tables you are having or how you will set it up, but think if you leave it the way it is some guests will get the pretty view while others will stare at a bare vase.

I kind of like it the way it is, personally. It would look good on a mirror though.

I think that it looks good…very woodsy and nature-friendly.  Is that the feel that you’re trying to go for with your wedding?  If so, then I would say that you’re on the right track! 

What are your colors?  Maybe some sparkly ribbon would also be nice.  And I like the mirror underneath idea too…it would give it more volume. 

Try looking at it with the candle lit…maybe the candlelight will add the “spark” that you’re looking for?

I like the idea of a mirror, or can you get a larger wreath?  If not, you can add some more Eucalyptus. Or how about putting some tea lights around it?  Just throwing ideas out there, I think it looks great the way it is.

Maybe instead of the big white candle have 3 that are different hights in the vase then tie them together with copper. (I love the copper on the outside of the vase)!

I also love the rustic look.. I am hoping to use stones and coffee beans to add natural textures to ours.

I love it! Just my two-cents: would a mirror detract from the rustic feel? Although, the mirror would reflect the light beautifully…Obviously, I’m undecided too and thus no help to you! =)

Whatever you do will be fabulous!

I agree with RoddyBride, I think you might need a little more twigs/nature in there. 🙂 A mirror might detract from the rustic feel, unless it was a little old/antiqued? I dunno, having trouble envisioning it.

I would mirror the decor on the other side, or fill in a little with greenery.  it’s a VERY cute idea!  I love the style.

P.S. You should also post a picture of it lit. 🙂

I love the rustic look. My first thought was you could add another smaller element, like some sprigs of berries or smaller flowers.

Rather than mirror the design exactly, you could balance it out (and still keep it natural-looking) by adding a couple of seedpods and/or eucalyptus to the opposite side of the wreath. I think it’s quite pretty as is, too.

You could put in on those thin wood/log rounds they sell at Michael’s instead of a mirror to keep more rustic.
