That is super cute idea! Just make the center candle does not melt the plastic frames.

Can you use pictures that are vertical instead of horizontal or change the frames so that they are sitting horizontal?

I agree with Tulip- Use pictures that are vertical instead and that should look better.  Took me a while to see the photos.

I agree with Tulips idea. If you can place the frames horizontally it would look better. Can you also maybe get a taller center candle? Or have it raised a bit.

I would probably do a taller vase with a floating candle for the center. Maybe you can submerge the same flower in the vase to pick up the colors.

I don’t think it looks cheesy, but the frames do look a little awkward. All your guests are going to crank their necks to try and see the photos of you two (I just did it! hehe).

hmm are those plastic flowers? if they are? I would nix them. along with the flowers.


I think you can do just candles of varying heights and that would look really nice clustered in teh center of the table/

I think this is a good idea, but that you might try a few things to really bring it together.

If the frames will stand vertically, use photos that are similarly oriented.  Ditto if they’ll be hrizontal.

Use colored craft paper to back the photos.  The white that shows through between the frames is, to me anyway, distracting. 

Can you use larger blooms?  Or ones with centers?  The floral ring is very pretty, but the whole arrangement might look larger and lusher with different flowers.

Are those just frams tilted towards each other?  I think another bride did something similar with pictures around it with a candle in the middle.  I think she just used a square frame and glued the pictures over (kinda like a square luminary).  It was really cool.  I think it would look less DIY than just the plastic frames

On a practical note, are you somehow fixing the frames together or just leaning them up against each other? If someone bumps the table and they are not secured, they will fall over.

I agree with teaadntoast about using some paper on the backs of the photos.
