Assuming you’re doing round tables I’d just combine the two & use the pomander in the middle and a ton of varying candle heights around it. If you are doing long rectangular tables you could fan out the candles along the length of the table…. 

It might look odd to have half the tables with these super tall pomanders & the other half with much shorter candles…

I had 30 tables and had 3 different centerpeices.  I was a bit worried it would be too much, but it ended up looking beautiful.

I don’t have pics with me, but one was a cylinder vase filled with water and beads that hung in the water and a floating candle on top. Another was a purple charger plate with about 8 mini pillar candles on it. The last was a silver “mirrored” vase thingy and we put purple LED lights inside.

I think it will look great if you alternate centerpieces on the tables 🙂

@TMB47:  Haa Haaa! My family is the same! I ask for an opinion on a color or fabric & everyone’s all “whatever you want honey, its your day” it’s so frustrating!

My centerpieces are completely mismatched. I don’t think it will be awkward at all. You could also do long tables instead of round and have multiple centerpieces, like 2 short and 1 tall.

oh I wish that was my issue-  I have a self invited bridesmaid who is in my bridal party at her assumption because she set us up-  She was so excited that I didn’t have the heart to tell her I only wanted family-  she won’t shut up about all of her opinions!!!!!  she wants a sexy brudesmaid dress and to buy me all the bridal thing. I am a 39 yr old first time bride and so don’t want to do certain things-  one of them being the garter toss- she told me people will expect it so I should do…my stories could go on and on-  needless to say I am so wishing everyone would say it’s your wedding, whatever you want.


Best of luck to you all-

I think it’ll look great.

We’re having 30 tables and 3 different centerpieces, too.

We are having two different centerpieces, so I am biased, but I think having two different centerpieces can look great.

I think 2 is better than 1 for it helps break it up so its not just all tall centerpieces across the board. Love what you have started!
