I think they will be lovely when you add the flowers.I would be careful about overdoing the bottles though. 3 of anything is usually enough, especially if you are also having the candle and fairy.

I would do without the candle, personally. I like the rest of it though.

Love the tree slices & the vintage bottles (think 3 is a good number). I would try a different type of candle. Personally not a fan of the fairies, I collected them as a kid & love them but don’t care for them in wedding decor. But if they go with the feel of your wedding then go for it! The flowers sound like they’ll be perfect.

I would also nix the candles of put them in something. This could be a big fire hazard with the wood

Agree with PPs, no to the candles. I think they just do not match at all. If you want the candle look maybe a few small tea candles (or slightly bigger- enough to stay lit through the whole thing) But I don’t really think candles at all match too well

Are the numbers attached to the fairies? I think you have too many bottles on each, so if you pare them down, the candles will look great with everything. I like them, as they add another texture.

 

Like #1 would be perfect with just one bottle, since its so large. The second has too many of the brown…maybe one taller and one short one. If you try to make each vignette have an odd number of items, it will be more pleasing to the eye. Plus, once you add flowers in there it may be too overpowering.

@Weetzie:  I am so confused by people not liking the candles. I think they look nice. I actually think you need 1 or 2 more candles to really illuminate the whole arrangement.

Plus, everything will look much more cohesive once the candles are lit and the flowers are added.

ETA: I love @OkieHeart‘s recommendation to spread out the coloured bottles between all of your centerpieces. That could also help mix up the sizes, too.

#1 needs one of the large square bottles removed and add 1 or 2 small colored bottles. #2 needs some of the brown bottles switched for other colors. I agree with having odd numbered bottles, even numbers of items look off to the eye. I’d suggest having one bottle of each color, mix and match the large and small, and make sure the colors are scattered around the room.

I think you need candles, but the ones you have are a shape that is a strange combination with the rest of the items. No offense, but they also look a little bit like a bees nest. I would go for plain round ones in votives just to simplify everything a little bit.

@MlleFabuleux:  I like that picture!

Maybe it’s just the lack of candles that makes me think they don’t go. That ONE lone candle doesn’t look good to me…smaller candles and more of them lining the edge of the wood would look much better
