Can you cluster two or three flowers together and then hang the crystals off the cluster? I think the clusters of decor would look more lush. I also think it will look a lot better after you get them into vases and set up at your ceremony, kinda hard to tell in the house! I love the color of the branch!

I don’t think it looks like crap, but I think you can do some more to enhance it.  I think the flowers look better when they’re not at the exact tip of the branches, maybe you could move some, bunch some together, add some.  Also maybe you could add some hanging ribbon pieces with just one crystal or bead at the end.  Is it going to be windy for your ceremony?  If not I would also add some longer pieces.  Good luck!

I really like it.  It doesn’t look like crap at all!!  I think you have been looking at it too much so it is starting to look odd.  Happens to me all the time – the more you look, the more something looks ‘off’.  I’d leave it alone for a day or two & then see if you still see something odd.

Honestly…I was trying to think of things to try (i.e. touches of moss on the a branch or two, or fake leaves)….but I think that may take away from the simplicity of it.  I think it’s great as is!

I think it really does need something to enhance it. It is a beautiful starter piece, but adding a couple of clusters of crystals or flowers I think would be pretty. Just something to add to it to make it that special look that you want.

I would consider hanging strings of “crystals” all over it.  You can get them really cheap at garden ridge, hobby lobby, dollar general.   Like the kind made for christmas trees.

It looks like you are just using one substantial branch for each tree.  You need to wire a few substantial branches together to form one tree.  That will keep it from looking bare and weighed down on top.

If you google for images of wedding tress, you’ll see that they don’t have many of the smaller, twig like branches.  In fact, many of these are trimmed off, leaving just the thicker limbs.

Wire a few thicker branches together until you form a pleasing shape, then paint the whole thing one color, so that you can’t see where they were wired together.

How about hanging some votive cups with tea lights in them from the branches?  I also think cluster some of the flowers and adding the hydrangea will make it “perfect”!

 

Great job!
