I like the purple but I feel like it looks more like a resteraunt than a wedding set up. Maybe switch up the tray and the vase? I’m sorry if I’m being too harsh.

@lollygagon:  I think you are well on your way.

When you have a table of eight charger plates and add glasses the look will be more complete.

I agree that the frame seems a bit large in comparison to the size of the vase. Can you lay it sideways? Some frames have stands on the back so the frame can be used in both landscape and portrait style.

Rather than have candles in all three of the crystal glasses,I would try placing just one flower in the center glass. You could even use something like a small fern or a succulent.

@lollygagon:  I love the mirrored tray you have!  I think you’re off to a good start.  The thing that jumps out to me is the vase is too tall.  I would look for something smaller and footed like your inspiration pic.  Short champagne glasses like this might work:

I’ve picked these up at garage sales and thrift stores for next to nothing.  You could also post in your local Freecycle group to see if you can get them for free.  Spray paint them gold and get some wet florist foam and add flowers.  Fifty Flowers has a Purple Combo packfor less than $100 depending how many tables you have, I would also get some green fillers too.  You wouldn’t need that many flowers to fill it maybe 5-10 plus the greenery.
