I am in the part of that lovely "doubting" period that I think every bride goes through, I need to stop looking at blogs and pictures I think Anyway, we are having an outdoors, very rustic wedding and reception at a local park, reception in a lovely old pavilion area.
These are pictures of a mock set up I did, this isn’t the pavilion we are using, but I set up the tables in the way that I "thought" I wanted.
What do ya’ll think? Do I need to add something? Take away? Any suggestions? I used silk flowers for the pics but we will be using real.

I think that your vases are just lovely and that the candle and it’s holder are just gorgeous! Maybe adding more umph (i.e. more flowers) will take your centerpiece to the next level?

I agree the vases, candles and holder are beautiful. I’m a little unsure of the flowers, I know you will be using real, but perhaps just a little more would take it to the next level as VandalSammie said?

We are thinking of using various wildflower-looking flowers in the vases. Kind of like Mrs. Cherry Pie’s are in this link http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/03/27/married-in-montana-all-in-the-details-part-2-of-2/

And I could see a gorgeous runner made out of a material that would go with your theme…burlap, or something heavier in a merlot or gold color…
Other than that, I think your centerpieces look charming!!!

I like your candles and flowers and agree with JennyBryde that the only thing I would add would be a runnr for an extra pop of colour.

Thanks ladies! I have been cutting out burlap and sewing the edges for table runners, that stuff is miserable to work with, it gets on everything….Will try to set up a table with them and see what it looks like then.

Agree, something on the table underneath them (chargers) would be perfect! I think the burlap will have the same effect. I can’t believe you’re sewing it yourself, that stuff is a BIA.
I’m using flower petals to blanket my centerpieces….but since you’re outdoors that may not be feasible
Since you’re going for rustic what about river rocks? May not, I duno!

I think that having the table linens pressed would go a long way to making it look more professional. Seriously, though. It looks great.
