I think each of the arrangements are beautiful, but I would either do all fruit or a mix of the other ones. My preference is a mix of the other ones, but if you love the fruit, then go with that one.

Sorry, I am not much help. I change my mind a lot.

Edit: I see you just added another picture. If you like that one, I would just do that one and not mix it with anything.

I say stay away from the fruit in the centerpieces unless its a theme in the wedding like i saw a bee posted about using oranges I think as the place cards, very cute! Using the fruit can go from fun and original to tacky pretty quick lol but I loce your inspiration pics and think short and tall centerpieces would be very pretty!

I know you posted about this before and you said that your florist said that to fill the martini glass with so many roses would be expensive…I think that if you really want it and don’t want it to cost so much then you should choose a fuller flower. either use roses that are more open so you don’t have to use so many or use hydrangea or some other flower that is fuller. Go see your florist again and see what they come up with…if you want the martini, get the martini…

btw..I see we have we have the same avatar…cute, right?! Wink

I love the 3rd picture! My preference is shorter centerpieces so your guests can see the person sitting across from them! It allows for easier conversation. I think the third one conveys your look and is very beautiful! Normally I like fruit in centerpieces but the vase that you have in the first picture looks too much like a martini glass to have fruit in it!

I really like the 2nd and 3rd together, it would look very visually appealing and attractive to do a mix of the high and low centerpieces. You could also do candles, like from the 4th pic, along with them and that would really add to it.

i like the short vase look because to me it is more intimate/ romantic. 

Maybe you could just use shorter martini glasses. I think the tall glasses will cost you more..and plus is wont look as good.

To be honest i recommend you buy the vases yourself. Florist over charge. And im sure it will cut cost of you just got them yourself.I went to a florist the other day.. i told her i bought my own vases for 6dollars. SHe quoted me like 35 dollars for hydrangeas and roses. I recommend you try a 2nd florist..just to make sure she isn’t ripping you off.

here is a link to some short martini vases

Also, if you want to save more..you can maybe just add flowers around the bottom of the martini, and just add some floating candles inside the martini. With maybe an orchid inside…or something like that.

hope this helps.
