Maybe have both color on each table but in sepatate vases (not mixed in the same arrangement)

I really like your idea! I also like that you are getting away from the “typical”. I am also planning to do 3 different arrangements for my wedding (colors have not been picked yet though).

If I were you I would try and find pictures online of a wedding where someone already did it and show your mom how beautiful it can look.

I think that would be really pretty, but I see your mom’s point a bit too. Are you going to be using the same flower, or similar vases, or any other point of cohesion? Because if there’s one thing that makes them look similar, then they’ll blend fine. Also, if you have coral and white all over your reception (which I’m assuming you will), no one’s going to be like, dude, why this color?

I totally don’t think you have to mix the flowers.  I like your idea.  The room as a whole will tie together, nobody will just be comparing 2 tables.

I too am doing the three different heights for 20+ tables. I understand what you mean trying to be original and different. To give you an idea of what we’re doing, we will have clusters, medium height vases and then tall vases. All of my different levels won’t have the exact same flowers. For example, among other things, the tallest will have lavender roses, sage green roses, green hydgrangeas, fuscia dendrobium orchids, and other green and lavender colors, but then the medium will have primarily only fuscia dendrobium orchids, with greenery, but without roses altogether. And then the clusters will have only roses lavender roses, sage green roses and another color.

I think the cohesive feel could come in the re-use of the same type of flower throughout all, even if it’s not the same color repeated.

Again, I bow to my florist, because I really got a good one and relied on her to guide us as to what she thought looked good.
