I am having centerpiece anxiety! I am wondering if I have to add color to them. My colors chosen by my dear hubby to be are great, I love them… HOWEVER, I always dreamed of having shades of white wedding. My venue is called the White room, I am getting married in late January during the “Night of lights” when the whole town is illuminated with white lights. Beautiful exposed brick room with mahogany chairs, white linens and wrought iron accents . I am wondering where to add my color. Our colors are teal and tiny accents of purple (dark blueish-purple). Is it ok for the only color to be only in the bridesmaid dresses? Or is that weird? Should I use maybe some colored chargers to accent the color? Or is that tacky? This is the centerpiece I wanna use…
I need some help!!! Comments needed!

Center peice is fine as is?
What about using VERY light purple and blue candles?
Shades don’t have to be 100% perfect and I personally like it better when its not.

Can you just add a table runner down the middle- that will add the pop without taking away the white tablecloths.

i WOULD add tiny little peices of color yes but doing them tiny I think is going to be amazing!

I don’t think you need to add color if you want a white wedding.
When you look at the most formal dinners, everything is white including the linens and candles.
There will still be lots of color with your brial party and the guests’ clothes.

You could add a couple of blue flowers at the bottom with some greenery?

I love the theme you’re planning for the wedding…..keeping the color only in the bridesmaids dresses is also a very subtle and classy element.
I love the centerpieces and generally if you keep in mind “less is more” you cant go wrong. They are perfect in keeping with the decor you described…I would consider placing them on a mirror (try to find one not much larger in circumference than the candle centerpiece) This will help refect the light and give it a bit more presence…….
The white of your linens, and the twinkle of the crystal will make a very elegent look…..the candles reflected in the mirror will add a bit of sparkle….To add a bit of drama you can add just a sprinkling of (again less is more) of greenery or colored flowers to the mirror area, but only a touch….it should act as a hint rather than a statement
I would use only white candles, keeping the whole look very rich and elegant
You’re instincts are good……go with your feelings you’ll just fine.

Thanks guys!! I have really been stressing. I guess I am over brided.. if thats a word. Lol. I have looked at too many things and I was trying to compare. I agree just some minor simple touches will be perfect. 🙂
