@HollyJ:

I would do votive candles in normal holders, not the stemmed tealight holders. The flames  will look prettier if they are low and will bounce the light off your vases.

6″ is not too low for vases. There are two rules of thumb. One is that the tallest flowers should be 1.5 times the height of the vase. This will make a nice centerpiece at a height that will not interfere with coversation across the table.

The other rule of thumb says that the vase takes up 1/3 of the total height of the arrangement. In this case the flowers would be 18″ tall, which would interfere with conversation.

Depending on the theme and look you want for your wedding, you could place the vases on top of a small stack of books, add a chachka or two, even put  a single flower  in a votive holder etc, or, place the stack of books next to the vase and top with a small bottle with flowers

If you don’t like the look of random book covers, you could cover the books with kraft paper , old maps, or in your case something metallic.

or a metallic box

@HollyJ: to me, the flowers wouldn’t make a huge difference, do you have dark color linens underneath?

Small round wreath floral forms and stick in whatever greenery/flowers you want in them and lay them flat on the table, vases in the middle. That’s kinda what I’m doing.

@HollyJ:  yeah the dark color really makes it pop. maybe you could do a runner or even just a square napkin underneath

@HollyJ:  i think it would be beautiful! if you think it’s too much you could probably do without the mirrors
