Very pretty!  I love the color combination!

The peonies look a little smushed in the first picture.  Did you cut the stem a little too short?  I might work a little bit more with layers & height too.  Just a little suggestion!

I LOVE the centerpieces you did in your last couple pictures.  I prefer the flowers being spread in the vase rather than clustered all together.  Great job!

I agree with @Wendy, I love the different types of flowers all mixed up, not just organized by type. The colours are fab too!! Awesome job!

I vote for the 2nd centerpiece. It’s just a better layout than the first one. The colors are really beautiful, you did a great job! Peonies are soooo pretty. They’re just too darn expensive  for me to use during the time that they’re not in season (which is such a small window to begin with). Just a little jealous here. 🙂

I like the flower arrangement in the last 2 pictures the best.  I think for the ribbons because you said the venue is a yacht club and the bridesmaids are sleek – you may want to do a more sleek, crisp line wiht the ribbon ends.  Either by not having a bow and just doing a ribbon line or having one of those short almost tuxedo-looking bows with short ends.

Colors really flow nicely together, really good job.

the last two are the best, for sure! The first one looks weird because of the same-flower clusters.

What about playing with different vase sizes/shapes?  I really like the color combinations.  Are those hypericum berries?  Did you want them to be red?  I only ask because we are using green hypericum berries but when we went to publix to get some for our mock ups they only had red ones available.

I really like those size vases but centerpieces always look different in different shape vases.  I would check out Dollar Tree (either in store or online) and see what they have for $1 and kinda go from there.  You really can’t beat $1 vases and their quality is just as good as the more expensive vases.  

I think that color scheme would look great with some green berries.  My groomsmen didn’t really want to wear flower bouts so we are doing green hypericum berry bouts.  This might be easy for you to do the week ahead of time and you would have to worry about them wilting etc.

If you use the second setup I’d definitely stick with these vases, but if you cluster them, then vary the height of the flowers and go with a skinnier vase I think. I love how they look with the latter pictures and I think getting green berries will help it from becoming too overwhelmingly red/pink. That way it pops more.
