They look great, but I’d recommend using the larger 3″ floating candles and I don’t think you need the crystals or the floralytes

I think they look really good! I actually like the buds sticking out of the top. But maybe they look fake IRL?

I agree that you don’t need the crystals or floralytes.  That is just extra money.  The definitely look great!!  Try leaving them in the water for the same amount of time they will be in water on the big day to make sure they don’t fall apart or something.

@Miss Care Bear:  Thanks so much! I’m having a destination wedding and I wantto make my own centrepieces with orchids. I plan to go to Montreal in the fall so maybe I will look then. I will also check out Ikea cause I live right near it. I was going to go to dollarama but I want the flowers to look lifelike and I dont think there flowers really do lol

I think they look great!!!

I don’t want to be a downer bee, but @Luvita has a point about the fire hazard.  You may want to check with the venue on any restrictions (some venues don’t allow open flames, others have restrictions as to how high in the vases the open flame can be).  Just a thought!  πŸ™‚

I did this at my wedding and it turned out great. If you use a colored orchid, it will look less fake. Not sure if you want to do that though.

I like the second picture where the vase is not so crowded.  And I LOVE the crystals and the floralytes… and agree with the larger floating candles.
