I think the birdcage thing is cute depending on what type of wedding your having. It is definately not leaning towards formal and does look like something that would flow better with a shower or tea party. If the wedding is more laid back backyard BBQ type than this idea may work. I think it wouldn’t be appropriate for a more formal event. If you want to keep costs down and have something more formal maybe go with the idea in the second pic with maybe only a few vases instead of several. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

@MissTaken:  I think your bird cage centerpieces would definitely fit your venue’s theme! They look super pretty — very fresh and rustic without being too “country.” I say go for it!

I would make sure, though, that there’s something of a common theme between all three centerpieces. The birdcage and the stone bowl from the first both look sort of pleasantly weathered and natural. Your glass and candles and silver from the second centerpiece are more polished and “modern” looking — still gorgeous, but you’ll probably want to make sure that you have, say, similar flowers decorating the trays as you do in the bowls. Just so everything ties together and it’s not the Greatest Hits of Wedding Centerpieces. But they’re all really pretty!

Lovin the birdcage idea and you executed it well. It could even be good with MORE going on, maybe a satin ribbon…maybe an artificial fruit?

The ONLY thing I don’t like are the candles honestly. I reeeeally don’t wanna hurt your feelings:) But it looks like aDIY project and you don’t want that….I like the lace idea but maybe a little more cleaned up….or maybe you could frost paint the candle holders so that they give off that glowy look…it’s super easy. There is “frost spray paint” at places like The Home Depot. Just suggestions….I don’t want you to think I don’t like what you’ve done.

I love straying from traditional so the first centerpiece is sort of bland to me. The second centerpiece is very pretty but gives off a japenese garden vibe. The birdcage makes for a more unique centerpiece, I love when it’s used for holding note cards. Yours is missing a bit of a wedding vibe though.

It looks quite wedding-y ๐Ÿ™‚ Not sure if its the cage or the flowers on the outside.

I LOVE the first centerpiece, the birdcage is gorgeous too ๐Ÿ™‚

but not sure about the second one with the candles and water, maybe make them a bit lower? possily add more flowers to the bigger middle one

If your planning on mixing and matching center pieces, I’d go with 1 and 3. From the info you’ve provided, it sounds like they will match your venue and theme the best. The 2nd one is nice but it seems out of place with the other two. Did you say you were having 3 per table? You couold alternate 2 bircages/ 1 flower and 2 flower/1 bircage on the tables.

I think the flowers and birdcage (#1 and #3) go together nicely, but I don’t think the candles fit the theme. If you want candles, maybe you could put them in lanterns. But honestly you don’t need more than the flowers and birdcages.

Love the bowl and the birdcage.  The middle centrepiece with the candles and curly willow doens’t match the other two at all though.

I love it.  Love the first one, because it gives you that centerpiece that has a big floral impact (but then you have the others which helps give some variation and keeps floral costs lower!). I love the urns they use in that pic. I think you can age your own to look older and rustic to. The second one, I can envision with the tucked flower heads around the base. Just make sure they are bigger flowers to have the most impact! Love that look though, reminds me of this pic that I love. I think the candles look better though than the floating ones in your pic. The pic below looks a little more vintagey and less modern, I think!

I like the birdcage, too. i think it will look great with fresh flowers. I think the fake flowers are a little underwhelming is all. I think you are on the right track with the votives. I actually think the lace is pretty, but it looks messy at the top where you can see the glass. I would try just putting lace around it to where you cannot see any of the glass. It will look cleaner and less DIY.
