I’m making my own centrepieces- I’m having a November wedding here in the UK so going for a wintry wonderland look. I’m silver glitter twigs in a vase, potentially with baby’s breath surrounding the twigs. On the table around the vase I’m having 7 little bubble vases -4 with candles in and 3 with colour themed sweets in (fuschia, silver and white).
My question is, does the vase with the twigs in need to sit on a mirror plate or is it ok just on the table?
I know it may sound odd and I don’t have any pictures of a mockup as I haven’t bought everything yet. Hopefully what I’ve written makes sense?!

@Jolly81: I think you’re fine without the mirrors, it sounds like there is a lot going on already and if you add the mirror with the reflection it might become tooo busy.

@Jolly81: I’m not usually a fan of mirrors used in centerpieces, but I think in this case it would work to give that icy, wintery look you are going for.
I think centerpieces are fine without mirrors at any time.

You definitely don’t need them. I think we used them only because our venue threw them in for free!

I think mirrors are nice for candle-heavy centerpieces because it gives a lot of reflection and light, but definitely not required for what you’re describing! It sounds pretty though.

I think I’m going to go ahead without them- I can always throw them in at a later date and you’re right, there will end up being too much going on!!
Always good to try and pinch the pennies a little where possible as well!!

Does sound like your have a lot going on already, so I don’t really think it’d be too missed if you didn’t have them. Maybe try to do a mock one though just to make sure, I love the way the mirrors reflect candle light.

My centerpieces were something like that as well, we used glittery material in the clear vase, put an led light in the bottom and put the glitterized sticks in. we also had pinecones, If we had mirrors it would have been too much, so I think you’re fine without them

@ginnwitt: thank you! That really helps to hear your opinion when you had similar centrepieces.
Will definitely be doing a mock up- I’m not someone who likes overcrowding so if it looks to busy I definitely won’t feel bad about taking some elements away!!
