I would love opinions/suggestions for these. (5B will be one of our table numbers since we are playing up that we have been long distance for 6 years and each table will represent an apartment number where one of us has lived) We will also have 4-6 frosted votives with gold glitter accents on the table. Also please ignore the hole on the top left I accidentally broke this one.

    I like the idea of the wine bottle and I like the idea of the frosted glass table numbers. I do feel though, that the two of them together is a bit disjointed and does not flow very well. Perhaps you could have some tables with the wine bottle (creating it for table numbers) and others with the candles

    I think I would prefer the bottle on its own. You can even place the table numbers directly on the bottle by using paint that resembles etched glass

    I don't understand why the bottle is sitting inside of the frosted vase thing.

    I actually don't care for the entire look. The flowers/fillers look like large versions of those clover things that grow wildly in fields, the blue bottle is a pretty color, but is completely thrown off by the frosted, plastic looking box with the Celtic twist design and the gold number/lettering. I feel the lettering would look better as silver.

    However, I love the idea behind the table numbers, very sweet!

    Love the idea!! But if I can be honest don't really care for the thing the wine bottle is in but could you possible show us what the table would look like with the votive holders ?

    Like you and Shaymay I'm doing wine bottles also. Smiley smile just remember we can give you opinions and ideas but it's your wedding you do what you think would be your taste and what you like !

    @Tara I agree, i like the bottle and flower on its own. just food for thought, to incorporate your apartment number still you could make a label with your number on it, or hang a sign on the bottle almost like this do not disturb sign....but have your room number on it.?

    Thank you for all the input. I'm hoping the votives will help it look more connected when they come in. I will keep making changes and update/post again when I come up with the next draft. More suggestions are alway welcome!

    You can tie all of the pieces together with a few adjustments. The blue bottle is pretty (I love cobalt blue glass). Take it out of the little box with the 5B on it. The shape of the bottle is an important aesthetic feature, so don't cut off the bottom by hiding it in the box. As for the two flowers, cut the taller one down a little (for this type of minimal arrangement, the top of one flower should be pretty close to the bottom of the other flower) and remove the green leaves from both stems (they add nothing to the piece and are fighting against the simple, clean lines of the bottle and the stems). Add Curly Willow branches -- you can get them from the grocery store (spray paint them gold and they will visually connect to the gold number on the box and the gold glitter accents on the table). You only need one branch per vase -- and you only need the top portion where the branch divides into two smaller branches. Their natural height (3 - 4 feet) is way taller than you need for a wine bottle container, and once you see them, you'll understand where you should cut them. Then, put a votive candle (preferably in the pink color of the flowers of the dark blue of the bottle) inside the 5B glass box. Put it next to your blue bottle as your table number. As long as all of the pieces reference each other, it will work.
