Centerpiece Advice

I am working on my centerpieces but can not decide which candle I like better to surround the centerpieces. The one on the left I painted the color gold that matches are wedding colors, the middle on is simply a regular Dollar Tree candle, and the one right is an unpainted candle holder with a tea light in it. The table clothes will be black with a gold runner. There will also be mini frames between each candle with pictures of our ancestors in them, but the frames have not arrived yet. Any advice is welcome. Thank you!

    Ooo I love your centerpieces. Very pretty! If it were me, I'd go with the gold candle holder.

    I love the gold but with the black table cloth, gold runner, and frames I would probably go with one of the clear options. To me it just seems like a lot going on otherwise.

    Thank you for you opinion. I understand your thought that there is a lot going on, but the tables we are using are huge and it just looks lost with just the wood slab and lantern. The venue actually allowed me take the centerpiece to the venue with the tablecloths and runners to see what it would look like so I was lucky enough to be able to see it before they are placed the day of the wedding.

    I would definitely use the candles- I would just personally use the clear ones.
