What’s the theme/scheme of your wedding?

This is kind of nice. I think you could scatter votives and flowers, with a picture-framed table number.

Or you could thrift-hunt and put all kinds of mismatchy milk glass or old china with poms and pearls.

here are a few idea – not sure what your colors are:

if you didnt want to use the candle in the vase – something like this might be neat and then put the votives around the base

or fill them like this

I second the Martha Stewart one (with ribbons & flowers near the mouth of the vase). Lots of votives around the base would be beautiful and easy on the wallet.

What are your colors?

I got all excited that someone was really doing a different centerpiece when I saw “plane”.

Then I found out you meant “plain”- not being an English teacher here, just had to change thinking from aeronautical to candles and vases.

You can buy small wreaths that fit around the base of your vase-grapevine wreaths can be accented with a couple of yellow flowers placed in floral tubes

you can decorate the candles inside the vase using your colors-perhaps use a gingham check ribbon and a yellow flower

if they allow open flames, you could turn the vases upside down, fill the space with lemons and place the candle on the top

depending on the size of the vase your venue has, you could place the pillar candle in a smaller container and fill the spce between the two containers with colored ater

you could wrap the base of the vase with a strip of birch bark into which you have burned a heart and your initials, or your name

or to go back to my original thought, you could do this LOL

Are the pillars going to be white? I really like the idea of wrapping a cool yellow ribbon (maybe a pattern with some white and gray, or a check etc) around the actual candle like a PP mentioned. Then you could put a lot of different things in the bottom of the vase or around it. Yellow and white marbles, sand, river rocks etc… Check out a hobby store for cool vase filler. Some sort of wreath around would also look cool with candles tucked in. Just make sure the candles don’t catch anything the wreaths on fire! That has happened to me at Christmas before! LOL

If your colors are yellow and white, your wedding is a summer wedding. I’d go with lemons or gerber daises for just a little color. You can scatter around or do that cool upside down idea!
