What color tableclothes? Will there be chair covers? any colors at all? i am asking because i think these are great as is and if you have too much going on at the tables it can be distracting. At my wedding i kept thinking i needed more and more on the tables but when we started putting things together i actually changed my mind and changed my centerpieces on the fly.

I think it would look really nice layered with additional votives/tea lights. That with dense rose petals would give a really rich, luxe feel to the table!

OOOh I think little feather wreaths in your purple color around the candle sticks would look neat.  If the glass hurricane part comes off you could slip little wreathy feathery things on and they would rest on the lip.  You could probably make them out of pipe cleaners and feather boas attached together, or a styrofoam circle with individual flowers attached.  Sort of like 5 tiny versions of this on there.

Or if you’re not a feather fan, you could pre-tie a bunch of bows out of ribbon and attach those with pipe cleaners the day of in no time flat.  That would give it the same little pop of color and interest.  I also like the idea of using the rose petals and votives around it.

Just a thought if you are trying to save money on the flowers! Use Ferns and lots of them. Or Euqliptias. They are beautiful too. And enexpensive. You may even live in an area where they grow naturally. Ask around. The trees always need triming!

I’ll attach a pictur with some euqiliptias branches and maybe you can get a slight visual. Just picture them alittle smaller wraped around your centerpieces!

Since you’re in the south, another really southern thing is mint julep cups. These make delightful little tiny vases. You could do small cups of flowers and votives. Julep cups or other small vases would be the right scale to alternate with votives. This would look nice below the taller centerpieces you already have!

I would drape the crystals like you’ve planned. Maybe even do purple and black crystals to further tie in your color scheme. Some black up in the candelabra would help tie in with the black tableclothes!

Use lots of candles and flower petals to add color.

Could you possibly take the center candle off and replace it with a pomander in one of your colors?  You can make pomanders relatively inexpensively too.  Here’s a pic from my friends wedding recently:

Frankly, I’d ditch the mirror. I think it makes it look like someone is trying too hard to glam up the centerpiece.

Have you considered ribbons on the table or a runner?

Or a wreath at the base of the candelabra? I love the look of a succulent wreath-these can be a DIY ahead of time
