    While they are all pretty, you need to find out before you order anything if your venue allows open flame candles. Many do not due to the RI nightclub fire from several years ago. Since you are having a destination wedding, you need to take into account the cost of shipping overseas, which will not be cheap, as these are not allowed into luggage on airplanes.

    That said, while I like the look of #1, the candles don’t seem like they would be terribly sturdy with the rounded base. In which case, I would go with #3.

    I like choice A the best.  However, maybe you could consider doing an assortment of all three?  They are very similar in style, so I think it would look nice.

    I like choice C the best as well.

    I do have a comment about your choice B. They actually sell that exact same decor set at Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99 (not a sale price, their regular price) and you could use a 15% coupon off on each one of them if you buy them one at a time. I know this because I just bought one a few months ago for our living room LOL!

    These are great.  You could also do something with a clear/glass container, sand and a candle or large sea shell.  I love seeing the sand centerpieces ~ esp at beach weddings.  🙂

    I like #1. It feels a bit more “tropical” to me… It’s more sculptural and smooth. When I think of Bahamas I think of stone pathways made of round rocks and whatnot. I think the square one is really pretty but more modern. Ask about having candles for sure though! Also the comment about shipping is very valid. It may cost you a fortune to bring a suitcase of rocks down with you. What if you just got vases or low bowls, and asked the hotel if they could supply the pillar candles and you and Fiance could spend a couple hours rock hunting on the beach when you get there?

    I take #3! I think it’s the most elegant.

    I think if you are doing round tables, then the round centerpiece would look best. 

    You could always add some leafs/branches to the middle once you get down there.

    You should be able to carry them in your checked luggage, but defintely check about the open flame thing.

    Are you going to have square tables or round? I like the C choice without the rocks, I see the sell the crystal kind on the website as well and they are cheap 😉

    I definitely like the rectangular ones for long tables.  Symmetry is pleasing.  🙂  That said, I voted for C, but either C or B would look great.  Actually, they all would.  Nice find!

    normally I’d vote for A, but with long tables I went for C…still think a variety could work, though, especially if more than one table..and reusable/resellable!
