    Hmmm ya, they’re not as full. I think buying wheatgrass is your best bet. It’s not very expensive so at least that’s a bonus 😉

    I think they look fine.  I don’t see a real problem.

    Maybe keep what you have already grown and just supplement it with annuals…..a combo?

    I think they’re really pretty and no one will think they’re not full except you.

    what flowers are in your boquet? How about adding a few around the 4 corners of the wooden pots to complete?

    I don’t know … I think it’s awesome that you made them yourself and everyone will think they are very cute. But, i can understand wanting to have the perfect centerpiece!

    i think its a different size pot so the grass looks more sparse…? looks fine to me for what it is. if you are worried you can always buy more and beef it up.

    I think it looks great the way it is.  No one is going to think it isn’t full enough unless they are specifically comparing it to something else.  I think you should save yourself the time/money/stress and go with that you have,

    Don’t stress yourself with it at this point. You have four days that should be filled with other things, like excitement and fun! The pic you posted looks just fine, and the only reason this bugs you is that YOU see the difference between the two. Nobody else will, and will likely be impressed that you grew them for the wedding!

    I agree… I wouldn’t stress. I think they will work fine!! Anything that is DYI especially when you have to grow it (!) is not going to be perfectly the same. I still think it will look great! Keep them!

    I think it looks fine, but we don’t have a top down view, so it’s hard to really say how sparse it really it is… but from the side, it looks good.

    I’m thinking about doing wheatgrass centerpieces as well, and while I agree that a little fuller would be ideal, if my centerpieces come out like yours then I would be happy enough and go with it.

    BTW – where did you get your containers?

    I honestly would not have noticed anything off about yours if you hadn’t mentioned it. 🙂
