I don’t think it will be bare, but people certainly won’t be able to see each other across the table. 

I just did a little experiment and I think that the postcards will be right at eye level.

If that doesn’t worry you, I say go ahead.

However there are lots of ideas on here for non-floral centerpieces that might be cheaper and easier than putting that together.

Just use the search engine in the upper right corner.

Here are a few ideas I found for you using google images. 

If you don’t want flowers, you could always go with candles, small or big, in vases or on a mirror. 

If you do want to go with the picture holder, you could always but something small at the bottom if you are afraid of it looking bare. I do agree with roseychicklet though, it could block people’s vision.

I totally dig this idea of picture centerpieces, and it’d be really cheap to just print off the pictures and buy jars/vases.  The second picture is off photo cubes, which you can make at home if you have your own printer. Just google "photo cube template."

Here’s one I love!  I’m probably incorporating our love of books and reading (and our link to southern authors) into a centerpiece, but this one is lovely with or without the book underneath it!

Imagine a black tablecloth underneath it, or a black damask runner on the table with a white tablecloth..and black and white tealights surrounding it!

First I was going to suggest votives but since there could be a fire issue if you have those battery opperate candles with votives that are covered with velum or something so that the light is just coming through that could give more to the table so that it isn’t just something tall on the table. I think that is a great idea though. I haven’t seen anything like that.

The votives are in glass votive candle holders.  I have had votives at events before .  I also had tons of them years back at a large hotel wedding when I married years ago.  Votives are ok as long as candles are ok with the venue itself.  The venue usually will let you know if candles are ok..I’d say  most are ok with that as long as they are contained in something..either on a candleabra, on some sort of base, or in a glass candle holder/tealight container like in the picture.
