Definitely, you could fill the vases with marbles, pearls, sand, rocks, coffee beans, water and use floating candles, etc. You can also put ribbon or other embellishments on the outside of the vases.

Sorry had to switch computers at work. It’s fun having two sometimes 😛

Do you know what feel you are going for? Vintagey, classic, dramatic, romantic, etc? Do you have your flowers or anything else picked out yet?

I would maybe google “brown inspiration boards” or “vintage inspiration boards” or just look around here at WB to get some good ideas. The color combinations with brown are endless. You could do brown and light blue, brown and green, brown and pink, different shades of brown…

You may also want to check out sites like save-on-crafts.com too if you haven’t already which has realtouch flowers, decorative branches, vase fillers, and other decorations that you could use in your centerpieces. Your pearl idea would look really elegant and romantic I think so you could always stick with that idea and maybe put a ribbon around the hurricane glass with your monogram on it or something.

Since you want to stay away from flowers, you can work to really dress up your candles. Here is a pic of a vase wraped in a vintage lace as well as actual candles wrapped with lace. It would be really cute to do a cluster of candles for each centerpeice & very affordable. Plus the lace gives a very romantic & vintage feel.

Do they have colored linens available (one of the pictures had an overlay)? That might be a cost-effective way to add a little extra something to the tables.

the only thing I recommend AND will make the place amazing will be chiavari chairs, that is ONE thing brides should really not be cheap about, it transforms the room and makes it look so elegant…… all of the options above are great =)

re your colours

Maybe Chocolate brown and either a fushia pink or a pale pink, another option that looks really nice is Chocolate and blue like a pale tiffany blue, or to really go Vinatge you could go Choclate and ivory cream, match with loads of glass candle holders and maybe a silver plated candelarbra in the centre of each table if you wanted some flowers you could att some short vases maybe some flea market finds with a soft pink flower in one colour or various shades?

just a few ideas

if there is a ledge at those big windows maybe you could line the windows with the big hurricane vases with candles in them? the room looks huge having loads of candles might make the area feel more intimate
