I saw something in Fresh Home with brightly painted birdcages with orchids inside, coming out.

Have you decided what color yet?

Behind every great crafter is a kitteh, waiting to eat patterns, sprawl on fabric, and attack knitting.

Sounds like you have some good ideas, and the pictures of the train depot, that place looks cool!

I think it would be cute if you hung some smallish photos on the trees instead of putting them inside the cages.  Have you seen the photo frame jewelry charms?  I saw some on ebay that were six charms for $3.55, could be pretty affordable.  Then you could use them for Christmas ornaments after the wedding Wink  As for the birdcages, a tealight candle would be cute as someone else suggested, or even a flower.

Good luck with the wedding, sounds like it will be pretty.

I love birdcages Smiley  I say, keep it simple.  Maybe add some shimmer to the cage itself so it'll catch the light from any candles on the table or lights from above. 
Try a few things & take photos of anything you try, in lighting similar to the reception, to see if it photographs well - set up a mock table to see how it all looks together. I think the lighting will make a big difference (not sure if it'll be a day or evening wedding) in what people will be able to see.
Height will be a concern, as another poster mentioned, you don't want it to be in people's line of sight while sitting but you don't want them to be looking at just the bottom of the cage either.
Something like these cages (although they're made of paper) would be wonderful
PS Congrats! I hope everything goes smoothly Smiley
