Hi all,
still working on wedding planning. I've been thinking about what to do on the tables.
What do you think of this pic? I found it on the knot specialty bios
http://bios.magnificentbliss.com/




I'm going to sprinkle some orchid buds around there (they hold up really well without water).  The picture looks like maybe 8 votives. What do you think of that amount?

Do you think it will look okay even though there's not one big focal point on the table?
I'm having a hard time picturing this. I may need to try it out.

Nice pic!

Round or rectangular tables?  What are the measurements on them?

Will you have place settings and/or place cards on the tables?  Table cloths?  Runners?

Sorry so many questions!  I want to give you an honest opinion, but need to visualize your whole table. Smiley

I think it's fantastic. The advantage of not having a big focal point in the center is that people won't have any trouble seeing and talking to each other across the table.

I still need more details.  I won't be peer pressured! Cheesy

I mean, sure, a talented photographer can make rocks and candles look awesome...

I think it's a great photo but agree with Sweets, I'd need to see more to get a better idea if they work overall.

The tables will be round and seat 8.  I'm not planning on having place cards.. I want the seating to be open. (but I've been known to change my mind)  The table cloths will just be white and I'm not planning on having a runner. (at least at the moment)

So, basically I have no idea what I'm doing with the tables!
I think I am going to pick up some stones and candles and try it out. I'll let you know how it looks.

Sounds good!  I think they would look very pretty with what you're planning (so far).  The tables are fairly small, so they'll be proportionate and make a nice focal piece.  They'll pop against the white (if you use darker colored stones such as these), too.

Can't wait to see pix/hear how they look with your test!

Just a note about something I learned...If you don't have assigned seating, you're supposed to have more tables and chairs than you have guests. It's silly but it's something about people leaving empty seats at tables.
