So I got around to doing my table mock up 8 days before my wedding and it felt like it needed more color. I wrapped the candle at one end of the table in black/teal ribbon and the other end in just teal. I can’t decide if the black draws away from the beachey feel of the pearls and sand in the candle or if it ties in with my placecards, or if I like the simplicity of just the teal. Any other ideas of things to add or make it look better would be appreciated. Thanks bees
We’re getting married on the beach with 12 guests and just having dinner and drinks at semi formal restaraunt after for reference.

I see what you mean about the black tying in with the place cards, however, I prefer the candles with just the teal ribbon.

So this baby’s breath is the center piece look I’m going for but i can’t figure out how to light it up :-/ I put marbles and a submersible light in mine and its too much

@Camgurl16: I agree with you. My personal opinion is that the whole lighted vase filler just screams Vegas lounge to me. I’m sure that it has been used in a classy and elegant way before, but I have yet to see it.

To tell you the truth, that’s probably something else lighting it from outside and it just seems like its coming from within. Possibly some sort of spotlight.
I, personally, find all of the black distracting, even the place cards. The table just feels like it’s missing something. Maybe get some larger sea shells along with the small shells to give a bigger impact. I do like the teal ribbon though.

I think the shape, size and height of the vase is wrong for the type of lighting you have.
What kind of submersible light are you using? I may be able to find a vase/light combination that will work for you.
The table does seem sparse as well. Someone mentioned adding bigger shells, I think. That sounds like a good idea.

The vase light is from michaels, it’s a round led submergable light :-/ maybe if I skip the light and submerge a white rose, it feels like its missing something to me too. I’m not sure what else I can add though besides larger shells. Maybe I could skip the submerged centerpiece and do a rose arrangement that’s not as high. Augh I’m freaking out I need to get this right by Monday

@Camgurl16: I think it’s looking really pretty. The only thing I would change would be getting rid of the large centre vase altogether and maybe adding some larger shells.

What about adding a bunch of tea lights to the spread and maybe some votives to add different height. The bigger shells are pretty costly here 🙁

What about using a teal vase filler to give it more color? I think your decor is pretty, but a little bland.

@Camgurl16: it’s a little monotone, can u give some more height variations and a pop of color? I like the idea but just like another pp said its missing “something”

@Camgurl16: Have you considered wrapping a wide, teal ribbon around the middle of the tallest vase in a bow (without the lighting inside)? I was imagining an organza ribbon or something similar in texture, to match the texture of the table runner. It just looks a little plain without somewhere to really draw the eye.

@Camgurl16: Votives and tea lights would look great, yeah. I can’t find a solution for the LED light, sorry.
Maybe some sort of mat to go under your table decor would look nice. Like the one in the fourth picture in the post above mine. That might bring the look together. Some star fish would also help fill it out; those can be bought online from party supply stores.
