    Looks good!  The only suggestion I have is to really try to find an unscented candle – having a room filled with those plus food isn’t a great combination.

    Check with your venue, too just to make sure you don’t need to surround any open flames with glass.

    Great job!

    Simple and cute all i have to say is make sure no one trys to take them home (the cup and plate) I went to one where the bride and groom rented all the vaces and everything then the guests took them home WITHOUT ASKING… But i like them just not sure what to do with the left over flowers….

    Beautiful! I also had never thought about the scented candles!

    They look good, but I was going to say the same thing about the scented candles… could be a little over powering X12

    @cyrgycyrg:  🙂  You’re welcome!  I’ve hada couple of brides in past years use scented candles because they just love them… then they walk into their reception and realize how bad it can get with so many plus so many people and food!

    I think they are pretty- My venue requires that our flames are surrounded by glass too so I second asking!  Good job!

    I like it. I agree about the scented candles. Not the best mix with food.

    Love it!

    But a question – when the candles are burning, where will the wax go? It looks like it’ll just melt right into the rocks and make a big waxy mess. (That sounded harsher than I meant it too)

    @Gingersnap: Good point. I would suggest doing a smaller candle or a larger glass and putting the candle in the glass and then the flowers around the glass maybe. m

    I love the look of it!

    Take everyone’s suggestions into consideration.

    And somehow make sure ppl know not to take these home! Because if I knew they weren’t rented I’d want to take one! lol.
