- Wedding: September 2011
To begin, my colors are Purple, Red, and hints of Gold.
Okay, so no matter what I plan on doing submerged red orchids in cylinder vases with a floating candle for the focal point of my centerpiece. I want different heights for the cylinder vases on different tables, but for them to all be the same diameter.
Also, for chargers/place settings I plan on doing white, round plates with a gold ring around the edge. And eggplant purple table clothes.
Now, I’ve started to fall in love with luminaries for table numbers. And I can easily make them myself with vellum paper and instead of putting a real tea candle in it get fake ones so I don’t have to worry about fires at my wedding, lol.
So I was looking for lumie inspiration (on etsy) and I saw these ones that had cut out flowers going up them. But tell me, would these be too much alongside a submerged orchid centerpiece?
Sorry for the blurry orchid picture, its the closest resemblance to what I want and the picture just kind of sucks, lol.
Now I can still DIY the lumies (with my handy dandy cricut) and I would have most deeper purples (probably a few shades) for the flowers, potentially a few tiny gold ones thrown in here and there. My plan is to have the centerpiece in the middle (duh) then 3 lumies spaced around it.
My backup plan, if I decide the floral ones would be too busy, is to do a purple ribbon below the table number with a little circle “fastener” (to hide the seam of the ribbon) that has our monogram embossed on it in gold.
AND since I plan on having varying heights for the centerpiece, should I vary the height of the lumies? Should they all be the same height (but no matter what shorter then the centerpiece) or just always make them like a certain number of inches shorter then the cylinder vase in the center?
I’m probably way over thinking this, but thanks for your help!
