Centrepiece (with pics) which do you prefer?

Hi girls,

I have my centrepiece, but don't know if I need mirrors or not. To but mirrors will cost me another £60 or so? Do you think they are needed? I really can't decide. (By the way it's not a mirror in the pic it's a candle plate but you get the general gist!!!).

    i dont think you need them tbh, spend the £60 on something more important x
  • Both look nice but i think i prefer without the glass mirror x

    i prefer it with...think it finishes it off nicely and brings it all intogether. Thcandles and crystals will look more stunning on the mirror. Lovely centrepieces tho.

    i prefer with as i think it brings it altogether more nicely.
  • I prefer it with. If you weren't having the tealights (the low ones) and the scatters then it would be nice without, but a mirror would finish it off.

    IMO, I think the mirror stops people putting things by the candles also as people tend to leave it all alone, whereas without people will dump the salt & pepper etc around the tealights and the may end up a little lost.

  • I think with! It finishes it off lovely!
  • Thanks ladies...! Still not sure. I agree that the mirror gives it a 'finished' look, but not sure it's worth £60. Am going to see how cheaply I can find mirrors, if they are cheap enough I'll get them I think.
  • I prefer without, but both look lovely.

    Why not get square mirrors, I got some from Ikea, pack of 4 for £4.88 they are 30x30cm so another cheaper option.

    I agree it looks better with

    How much would it cost you for candle plates, such as the one currently underneath? If it would work out cheaper, i'd say go with those, it still has some reflection to it, but I think the matte quality of it works really well.

    Both look ok but when the candles are lit they will reflect in the mirror and then I think the mirror justifies its presence.

  • I prefer it with the mirrors.

    How many tables have you got though cos I got my mirrors for £2.50 ish each from weddingmall.co.uk. So they shouldn't work out to expensive, and they are 20cm diameter, I think the 25cm were only £3 if you needed bigger ones.

  • I like with, you also get a lovely reflection when the lights are all down in the evening, and lovely light in the daytime. I think the mirrors are worth the few extra pence...... x

    Mirrors add depth and reflect them beautifully. For a cost of £2 per mirror i think it's worth it.
  • Thanks for all your advice girls. Am DEFINATELY going to go for mirror. Bought some candles over the weekend and lit it and turned the lights off and it looked gorgeous even without a proper mirror, with the mirror the reflection will just be beautiful. Thank you for all your help with this! Here is a pic of the lit version!

  • I also prefer with, once the candles are lit and the jewels are sparkling it will look amazing. Have you tried ebay? I got 12 centre mirrors on there last week for £8....loads of bargains on there!!x
