I think that perhaps you might have too much for centerpieces!

I think one lantern with one sunflower vase is more than enough. Afterall, people still have things to put down at the table.

I say no worries, your pics look amazing, no stress!

I think you are over thinking it a little bit. You still want guest to have room on the table to place there plates and drinks. So I wouldn’t over do it on the centerpieces. Your idea about the rectangle tables is a good idea it will make it seem as though there’s a lot on the table with everything continuing down the table with your decorations but still be beabutiful and minimal at the same time.  I think you can have the candles on the table as part of the decor they don’t have to be lit.

I think this sounds great! I love simplicity and yours seems like you’ve put a lot of thought into it. It’ll be very nice.

Putting real candles unlit on the tables is just asking for trouble. I guarantee that in mere moments someone would be lighting them for you.

It’s easy enough to do a mock up, either at home or at your local rental center. If you are at home draw a 72″ circle with chalk,or make one with newspaper. Set out the cutlery and napkins. Remember there will also be wine and water glasses, salt and pepper, and people will bring drinks from the bar.

Sounds perfect to me, bee! Maybe doing a mock up would help ease your anxiety a bit and visualize it better, though, like some other PPs suggested.

If you think they might not be enough, you could see if you can get some wood blocks (or old books) to elevate some pieces higher than another to give the illusion of fullness. After that maybe some loose stems of flowers or greenery, even some petals can help fill up space? How about some rocks or glass pebbles?

Notice how this doesn’t have any big centerpieces, but fills up the table space well with different heights and volumes.
