    I like the fullness of it but not the business of it. Looks too much like a get well bouquet. I think even if you lost the pinkish orchids it would make it a bit cleaner looking.

    I like it but it seems kind of like too much is going on. Maybe it is too many types of flowers, I just can’t quite put my finger on it. The size is great.

    I think the colors and flowers themselves are fine, but the way its put together just looks really messy and big.  I would pull out the giant leaves along the bottom and just pick one plant that cascades or shoots out of the centerpiece, as opposed to 3 that I’m seeing.  

    I have no idea when you are getting married, so flower availability might be an issue, but I think the mix of flowers is also off.  There’s a lot of orchids going on, which is tropical feeling, but the you have hydrangea and bells of ireland and hypericum berries, which are more romantic English garden.  

    If you want a more European feel, perhaps a change of flower types to something like lysianthis, asters, dahlias, iris, and daisies might be nice.  Green hydrangea might also be prettier than stark white hydrangea, with some roses thrown in.  Like this:  http://www-static.weddingbee.com/pics/58086/purple_green_centerpiece.jpg

    If its the orchid look you are after, then I think you should stay with the orchid mix, but use fewer kinds of flowers and have the giant leaves wrap the inside of your container.  Like this: http://yvonnedesign.typepad.com/.a/6a010534a9832e970b010536b7c44d970c-pi

    Part of what struck me when I looked at it was that you’ve got hydrangea and stock in with exotic orchids.  Why not do all of one particular flower, like this:

    and then add height and width with greenery?  You could even alternate, with a 2nd type of arrangement, white and purple.
