Let me start off by saying I am not a very artsy creative person. I opted to look at all inclusive venues because it takes the least coordination and creativeness on my part (I also live 4 hours from where I am getting married and it makes it 1000x easier for planning). The place I chose is absolutely gorgeous inside.
They give you the option to use their centerpieces or bring your own. During the final meeting to select all of my options on Friday I opted to go with three votive candle holders on each table (theirs).
While looking at Pinterest last night I saw a bunch of gorgeous centerpiece ideas. My question is, should I stick with what I already chose or splurge and go for making my own? Do guests even really care/notice them? My venue is so pretty, will the simple ones look like a downer next to that or should I keep them that way to not draw attention away from everything else?

How much additional cost would the centerpieces add? 3 votives per table doesn’to sound like much. An easy jazzy looking centerpiece would be to get an assortment of sizes and shapes of clear vases from the dollar store, fill them with hydrated water pearls and put a waterproof led light in the bottom, and a floating candle on top.

I’m always interested in what people’s centerpieces look like. Three votives will probably look simple but if that’s the look you want, then go for it. Do you have any pictures of your venue or what the votives look like?

Do three votives constitute the whole centerpiece? If so, I think it may look a little sparse.
I hear you on the non craftiness and the distance from the venue issues. You want to keep it simple. It would be easier to make suggestions if we knew anything about your wedding, or your venue.
You could use a cylinder or hurricane vase with a pillar candle.
You could use a short vase with one head of hydrangea.
