I feel like maybe if they had a little more flowers instead of greenery I might like them a little more.  But honestly, at the right wedding, I think they’d be really cute.

I don’t really know flowers that well myself, but I think if you stripped some of the greenery off of the stems of the flowers and cut them shorter it might look a little fuller and more like typical centerpieces.

I don’t think there are enough flowers and they are a bit too tall… Try putting all of the flowers in the center vase and see how that works…

I think especially for the middle vase you need a lot more flowers in there.  Don’t be afraid of greenery, it is great for filler!  You just have to arrange it correctly.  

See how these flowers are all about the same height with the greenery “supporting” them from underneath? 

Here is another simple example: 

 

I just saw this picture and loved it so I thought I would share, little vases like these would add great filler on the tables too.

You’ll need to water your flowers frequently in those vases because they’re so small. Right after you trim them they’ll drink lots of water, so keep that in mind. I think the other posters have it right. All you need are a few more blooms up top (but without greenery, to balance out all the greenery on the bottom). Arranging flowers is a skill that can be learned! They already look good, I’m looking forward to the update. 🙂
