I am trying to decide what to do with my centerpieces. I know I am going to do floating candles in cylinder vases. I dont know if I should go with 3 vases at each table (6″, 7.5″ and 10″) or one really tall vase (maybe 2-2.5′). They will both be on a mirror and surrounded with votive candles. If I do the 3 vases, I will buy them and re-sell them later. The tall ones I will rent from the venue. Help me decide!

The 3, you can do more with 3…put different color flower steams or petals in it float in water. Put a floating candle on the top. The 3 gives you more variety to do many more decorations/looks…plus it will take up more room on the table.
I am have several..all staggering in height, and I’m using the 2 tallest ones during the ceremony..they will have water with floating orchid steams in them, of different changes of purple.. then.. during cocktail hour, they will be brought in to the reception and a floating candle will be placed and lit on the top. I thought to do it, saves you money and serves 2 purposes!

I would say one tall vase if you had something in the vase, rocks, gems, a flower, otherwise three short ones.
Where are you getting your tall vases?

I am going to do floating candles in them…maybe some purple rocks or gems at the bottom but for sure a floating candle. I just wonder if the 3 sizes are too short…thoughts?

If youre just planning on floating candles, definitely the 3 short vases.

I think those sizes are great! Not too tall that you cant talk to other guests over them!
