    Hmmm… it’s a tough one. But, my opinion is that if your hall is going to be very brightly lit, I would go with the tall-low centerpieces. But, because you’re having a late evening dinner, if you can dim the lights in the room I think that the submerged flowers and the candlelight would look amazing!

    I am in love with the second group of centerpieces! I usually lean immediately towards just tall, but the combination in the second picture wouldf look great in my opinion.

    I really like the look of the second set of centerpieces, but practically speaking, I hate it when I can’t see the other people sitting at the table.  Because of that, I would choose the high and low.  They both look great though!

    That is a tough one.  I agree with Miss Olive that the second picture with the grouping of vases doesn’t allow guests to see/talk across the table. 

    Also, I think the multiple vases looks maybe a bit modern for the venue?  Hard to tell from the limited pictures.

    Because it’s a night wedding and formal, I voted on #2. It’s a lot more elegant and will set a nice ambiance. I personally think #1 is a bit too informal for your lovely affair.

    I love the second centerpiece.  It looks so beautiful with all the candles  illuminating them.  So nice!

    With both options, guests will not even be able to see each other which does hinder conversations and make things very awkward. If you cannot live without tall centerpieces, I would go with option #1.

    What kind of feel do you want for your wedding?  The high/low centerpieces are very traditional, and seem to fit with the look of your ballroom (the one in that picture, right?).  Whereas the submerged centerpieces give off a much more modern feel.  Both are beautiful!  I can see how it is a tough choice.

    While I LOOOOVE the second and am doing something similar, in the venue you described I’m going with the tall arangements. If you have the high ceilings it will just look so elegant and glamarous. Gorgeous!!!

    we were sorta stuck in the same boat as you – i really wanted candles and something tall, but i agree with others that a setup like #2 would hinder guests being able to see across the tables and i was afraid that they’d move them (i’ve been to functions before where the centerpieces just “got in the way” so people put them under the tables! =O). so we’re doing a mix of both:

    tall, thin stands with high floral arrangments (like #1, but taller/thinner), and then wine glasses filled with water and floating candles sitting at the base of the stand. it’ll hopefully create the high-low effect we’re going for (dramatic floral arrangements up top that are seen as soon as you walk in; and dinner by low candlelight while sitting). maybe ya’ll could do something like that? it fulfills your want for candles but still has the high dramatic arrangements <- at least that’s what it’s doing for me, lol. we’re gonna do a mock up of it this weekend, i’ll take some pics and post them so you can get a better idea of what i’m talking about.

    good luck and let us know what you decide! 🙂

    eta: we’re going for something similar to this: http://www.wishspecialevents.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/tall-hydrangea-green-white-wedding-centerpiece.JPG
    but the stands are metal and thin, and instead of cylinder vases, we’re using wine glasses to float the candles in.
