I would fill the bottom with some marbles to fill in some of the empty space. Other than that I think it’s lovely.

I think it also depends how big your tables are.  I would think about maybe adding a small square fabric underneath to pull it all together.

 

Here is a pic to show what I mean by the fabric.

What if you used sand in the bottom under the shells, then water, then candle? these remind me a little of Mrs Corn’s centerpieces…

i know my caterer provides napkins and has a ton of colors-i think we’re going to use some (dif color from the guest napkins) as the fabric with our centerpieces.  and that way i don’t have to buy any fabric!  🙂

check with your caterer, you might be able to use some for free!

The issue for me is not that its too simple, but that your ribbon is so wide that it hides most of your center piece. Maybe consider a slightly thinner ribbon, more shells, one of those mirrors to go under your piece w/ a couple other little candles at the base of the vase.

I agree with many of the posters.  I think you have the general idea going great!  Use a smaller ribbon (it does hide most of the shells), put either a mirror or a “napkin”  under the arrangement and then add 4 or 5 smaller votive cups with some sand in the bottom and a tea light on top of that.  You could use a very thin strip of the matching ribbon around the very bottom of them if you’d like.

Watch where you get your candles from.  I learned the hard way with my son’s wedding.  His only lasted for 2 hours and went out as dinner finish.  I was so upset!  I found a company www.CountryLightCandle.com that has really nice tea lights in clear cups that last 7 hours!  They’re made of soy too. 

I’ve recommended them so much, but I have no attachment to the company except that I LOVE THEIR CANDLES!  I don’t buy from anyplace else anymore.

Great job!  It’s going to be beautiful.
