I actually think those look pretty good for your first time!  You don’t actually have to have foam or tape for your table arrangements.  You will need tape for your bouquet, I’ve bought it at Hobby Lobby before and ordered it off of amazon.  You may want to buy some Allum (a pickling spice) for your hydrangeas, it helps them last longer.  You just make your angled cut, dip in Allum and put in the water.

esaints2:  Looks beautiful, basically professional! Although you might want to designate someone to do them the day of, could be a lot of work depending how big your wedding is.

It looks a little flat on top, but other than that it looks great! Good job 🙂

beautiful!! Just curious, did you know what you were doing ahead of time? I’m DIYing mine as well and am slightly concerned I might jack it up. Was it easy?

I think it looks nice, but big!  I’d be concerned about the time and cost to do 10 of those plus bouquets.  If it were me, I’d probably try to find some smaller vases and/or make them a little less full.
