We are doing photo centerpieces, using family wedding photos.  This isn’t a great picture, but you get the idea.  There is a diffent photo in each frame, and we’ll place them on some thick, glittery scrapbook paper.  We’ll have electric candles in the midde (they are printed on vellum so the candle light will shine through).

haha i was going to say candleabras … we are usuing these with table squares underneath – i almost think if you get a bigger candelabra you can get away with just that – for me, mine are big enough that if i added more stuff it would just look crowded with table numbers, plates, cups, napkins, and favors

  • A floating “candleabra”:  Different heights of rocks (or another pretty thing) submerged in different levels of water with floating candles.
  • A family tree:  manzanita with pictures of the people seated at the table and the bride and groom cut in the shapes of leaves and hanging from the branches on ribbons.  I’m covering the backs of the leaves with glitter.

this has very few flowers, and i think they are silk

some branches could add height

something smaller.

We’re doing 2 different types of non-foral centerpieces…My colors are black/white with teal accents and we also have about 40 tables.

First – I’m DIYing ribbon pomanders which will sit atop a 12″ eiffle vase filled with silver tinzle (we’re also draping teal fabric around the base and setting votives around each one). 

Second – For the other half we’re using these tall glassware sets (idk the actual term for them but they kind of look like big wine glasses) — they are 10″, 12″ and 14″.  We’re filling them half way with glass beads and setting a candle inside. They’ll also be draped with the same fabric and have candles around the base.

Hope this sparks an idea! 🙂 

Here’s a picture of one of the ribbon pomanders…

When I very first started looking this is whatgot the inspiration ball rolling for me. I just don’t think you can go wrong with lots of candles. Simple and beautiful!
