I like it, but I don’t like the mirror as a base. I can’t think of something else you could use off the top of my head, but I will think about it and post back!

I like it.  Just one thought, instead of using a taper candle, how about one of the tall pillar candles sitting on the mirror base?

@felloutofbed:I like anything original.  Is this for a Christmas wedding, by chance?  I would consider adding some springs of evergreen either instead of the mirror, or radiationg out from the arrangement on top of the mirror.  I bet anyone with evergreens in their yard, or perhaps some nearby trees, would be glad to furnish them for free.  Best wishes!

Going off of what HawaiiBamaBride said, I’d like it with a pillar candle. Something to still give it the height, but not oo much height. I like everything in the centerpiece, but there’s a big space between your “tiers”. Doing a pillar candle would make it flow nicely. My first thought was just to use a shorter taper candle.

@HawaiiBamaBride: Agreed on the pillard candle.

The lantern things are cool. How did you make those?

What are your colors? The blue flower thing looks out of place, but maybe it ties in with the rest of your stuff?

If you can I would spray paint the candlesticks gold. What are your colors? Gold white and blue?

I like the white doily lights (which could be dyed) those are cute. I dont know if it fits with the little flowers IMO.

I do like the mirrors with candles it looks really good when you dont have alot going on. Maybe consider doing 2 smaller candle sticks with the one big one. That would be very simple and elegant. If you’re using long tables I would put the doily lights between the candles.

I agree with @Goodatlove , I like everything except the blue flower. If blue is one of your colors you might want to incorporate it somewhere else, because it looks sort of unnatural in a flower. (Maybe a blue pillar candle?)

 

Maybe you could add more of the crystals and beads around the centerpiece so it looks fuller?

 

I love the doily idea!! so creative!

 

ETA : I love the two candle idea from the PP!!

The flowers look very Christmasy….I would try something more softer and natural looking.  I LOVE the lantern balls…those are awesome!
