    I would make the lumies shorter than the centerpieces, but then, I would probably keep the centerpieces all the same size. I don’t think it would be too much going on. I’d really have to see it all together to know how I feel about it for sure. In my imagination, I prefer the lumies with ribbon to the lumies with flowers, but I think it could look really good all put together with either ribbon or flowers. I voted that we’re soulmates because I too overanalyze everything. 🙂

    So how many of the submerged orchids are you planning on doing? Personally, I don’t like the flowers on the lumies, it doesn’t seem to match the elegance of your plates and other centerpieces. If you really want to do these lumies…I would probably make them smaller than your centerpiece so they’re not the focal point.

    If you’re just doing one, I would not do a cylindrical luminie. They have the same shape and I don’t think they match close enough.

    I would prefer a simpler version of the table number. I find the floral lumie a bit busy and it takes away from the centerpiece.

    I did a floral centerpiece with like 20 smaller vellum luminaries around it with fake “flicker” candles.  One of them served as the table # as well.  i think if you want to do this, it would look very nice–i did the luminaries with the candles b/c I wanted the “lots of candles” look, but didn’t like the way fake candles looked (and I couldn’t do real candles at my venue).  The flowers on them may be too much, but you could do them all in a colored vellum rather than white, or like 2 or 3 slightly different shades of the same color.  Or you could just double up some or do something to change the texture of others if you wanted to keep it the same color, but add a bit of depth/texture.  I did 3 different textures for ours.  Here is a pic:

    @MandaMack:

    To be honest the red and the purple do not compliment each other, It pains me to say that to you. The china is absolutely beautiful but the flowers on the lumies are a bit child like. Deep purple will make it more elegant and will make the red and gold pop.

    Yes, do varying sizes of the luminaries and change the floral design to a purple ribbon. That would be cool.

    If you do red I hope you are doing a deep maroon red otherwise it will CLASH. Different heights on the luminaries and candles would be best.It creates interest. Have you thought about doing the luminaries in the red also with a purple ribbon around the center that has a gold edge on it with the gold monogram?
