My wedding colors are pink (mostly everyting is light pink, except the bridesmaid dresses are a dusty rose color), white, and sparkly gold.
My centerpieces are going to be floating candles w/ pink orchids (with gold sparkly votive candles around the centerpieces).
Which vase filler do you prefer? My florist loved them both and said it’s up to me and they both will look nice.
Option 1: http://www.orientaltrading.com/pink-acrylic-ice-a2-3_1008.fltr?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhZOLneHV2gIVi_5kCh2lPwfsEAQYBCABEgKgB_D_BwE&ms=search&cm_mmca2=GooglePLAs&cm_mmca1=OTC+PLAs&cm_mmca12=Pink-Acrylic-Ice&cm_mmc10=Shopping&cm_mmca11=3/1008&mode=Browsing&source=google&cm_mmca3=PS544&cm_mmca4=FS39&cm_mmca5=Shopping&cm_mmca6=PLAs&BP=PS544&cm_mmc=GooglePLA-_-44071635732-_-736570281-_-Pink-Acrylic-Ice&parentSkuName=acrylic-ice&parentSku=13619341
Option 2: http://www.michaels.com/pink-cream-and-pearl-acrylic-gems-by-bead-landing/10505358.html
My concern for option 1: The pink acrylic ice color may be too light? FYI: It would need to be “pink” b/c per the reviews, the “hot pink” is actually purple.
My concern for option 2: They are not see through marbles, so will that look weird?
I can’t seem to find flat-sided clear pink vase marbles (that I can get several as our wedding is pretty large).

I prefer option 1, but if you want a more intense color you could buy them in clear and just put in pink LED light

I prefer 1. It looks a bit more classy to me, regardless of color. 2 looks like something that would be used on a baby shower craft decoration or something.
If it’s not pink enough, you could definitely add more pink in there in a variety of ways. Pink glitter, pink lights, pink “pearl” fillers mixed in, etc.

I prefer option 1. Option 2 looks cheap to me, like a little girl trying to play dress up, for some reason.

Option 1 due to colour. are there solid white ones also that you could mix in?

lovelyruby : Good idea! I like the pearl idea. Looks like option 1 is the direction I’m going. 🙂

Honestly I think they both look cheap, but 1 is far better than 2. I’m not a fan of vase fillers in general but if you must use them I’d keep it as simple as possible and stick with something clear or natural looking like river rocks. Some examples based on what you described:

Number 1. The second option looks like candy melts.

I like the softer look of #2, but I think #1 goes better with the look you’re describing.
