I love the look you’re doing here. Very elegant colors! If you’re looking for more decorations to fill in the little details, I’d go with air plants. Get the silvery, delicate ones and they’ll go really well with your existing decor. You can hang them from the ceiling to really fill in a room. I’m using mine in my house right now.

Yep leaves and orchids don’t clash. After all, orchids come with leaves naturally. 🙂

@Lulume:  I think your details flow very well. I do have some concerns that the two vases of orchids will not be on a large enough scale to even be noticed against all the chair covers.

Have you considered something on a larger scale, like tree branches with either silk orchids attached with hot glue, or real orchids added to the branches?

having a hard time telling scale in the photos, but I think you should maybe put the vases closer to the altar and not beside the chairs in the aisle. I would be concerned about blocking views or scratching your dress as you walk by. I honestly don’t think you need a lot of decor here.

what about something like this for  your arrangements?  You could make 4, 2 for when you first walk in and 2 for the front of the room.  You could make the column with PVC pipe painted chocolate brown with a faux finish glaze or similar:

 

ETA: I’m just talking about the copper/floral arrangements, not the giant grass things.

@Lulume:  Also check Home Sense for vases. They have huge cylinder vases at a very reasonable cost. If you get a clear glass vase, you really need good looking rocks though- something you would want people to see.

If you don’t want to pay for polished stones, you could use a sheet of brown poster board, roll it into a cylinder, line the vase with it, then place your branches and fill with rocks. That way you end up with a nice clear glass vase that you will be able to use later.
