I love this intimate look.

Much to my mom’s dismay, I think we’re ditching traditional flower centerpieces for candles and rose petals. (Sorry mom, but thanks for being supportive. You’re awesome!) Don’t get me wrong, I love flowers but we don’t love the price.  Not to mention, I just don’t envision my reception to be one adorned with flowers.   Sure, we’ll have floral BM bouquets and a couple of arrangements at the ceremony site, but the fiance and I agree, we want our reception to be aglow!

To be honest, of all the weddings I’ve been to in the past, I don’t even remember what the flower centerpieces looked like.  Oh, at the time I probably ohhed and ahhed at them but apparently they didn’t leave a lasting impression.  So I say, let there be candle light! 

Since Kenny and I are having our reception at the Greektown Casino and Hotel, we’ve been tossing the idea around of having a 1940s glam wedding theme.  (As a matter of fact, the 1940s marks the period when Las Vegas’ lavishly decorated casinos and top-name entertainment came into existence.)  We’re thinking romantic candles, martini glasses and rose petals… Simple elegance.

Check out some of these candle center pieces. What do you think?  Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I like this larger martini glass with floating candles

I like this larger martini glass with floating candles but it definitely needs a creative touch...

 

I like the candles, rose petals and blooms. Not sure about all the yellow...

This is pretty with the candles, rose petals and blooms. Not sure about all the yellow...

 

Another look I like, but maybe varying sizes of the votives?

This is NOT the look I'm going for!
