    That’s a really cute idea, but are you putting anything else on the wooden slab?

    I think you could totally utilize some of that open space on the slab to either etch/burn (not sure what type of material your fake wood is made of) in table numbers, cute little LB+FI in a heart sign, or lay cute couple photos out on each one. I think the burned in #s or initials would be cutest.

    @LissaBell86:  Very creative!  I think it would look even better with a heart and your initials carved into it.

    ooh cute! 

    Def carve the initials or put some type of design on the wood. 

    I’m not a fan of the bow.  It looks too small.  I would experiment with something fuller–like a wire ribbon or some other type of bigger ribbon?

    I think you have come up with a great idea!

    I agree with your idea of adding your initials to the slab. If it is fake wood, you might have to try a couple of ideas ( use the underside of one slab) to see what works the best. It depends on what it is made of- you may not be able to use w woodburning tool or carve into it. You could get a custom rubber stamp made.

    You could also add a couple of shorter glasses with votives to give the cluster look

    I’m not feeling the bow or the candle holder…I did similar centerpieces and the candles stayed on just fine without one.  But, overall, love the idea with the wood slab and carving initials in the wood!

    The slab is looking pretty empty, i think you need three things on there, ie a shorter glass with a candle and a candle holdder on its own, I am not into the bow either.

    Mrstobe as did similar centrepieces with sand, candles and mason jars and they looked amazing, check them out here http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/im-just-a-tease

    I love the idea of carving your initials and date into the wood slabs. I do think they need maybe one more decoration. Love the idea though, and I am intrigued by the wood slabs at michael’s, I wanted to do a similar project and this woul dbe perfect!
