so we had our sample table yesterday and i’m not sure how to feel – mainly about the flowers. colors are dark purple and peach. i didn’t really have specific expectations but i was surprised. i’m not sure if that’s bad or good. i feel like they definitely make a statement but i’m not sure if its the right statement. or maybe i just need a few eyes to tell me they look nice and normal and not weird and will be beautiful. we did make some slight changes to even up the colors a little bit (less pinky, more peachy/creamy, getting rid of the lighter purple stock). and i know things will look very different in the ballroom with the lighting and everything all together. anyway, i ama anxious so please give me some feedback. first pic is tall, 2nd is the short and 3rd is w/ the place setting/chair etc.

I saw that you were disappointed no one responded (from the August post) so I decided to come take a peak.
I think they look really beautiful! I really like that some are going to be tall and some are going to be short.
I think it will look gorgeous!

I really like the flowers. A LOT! the thing that threw me off though were the little lamps coming out of the tall centerpieces. they just look like too much and take away the integrity of the flowers in my opinion.

I love the centerpieces the tall one especially but you should take the lamps out of it because there is already enough going on!

Suuuper pretty! My favorite color is purple, so I’m all about those centerpieces.

The colors and flowers are beautiful! I agree that the tall arrangement would be better without the lamps. It will be lovely! Do you intend that there be tall and short arrangements around the room? I can imagine that would be lovely!

THANK YOU! i appreciate the feedback. there will be both tall and short (like half and half)
unfortunately, my venue does not allow open flame, so the lampshades have to stay on. the ceiling is also very tall so it won’t look as cramped as it did in the multipurpose room of my planner’s condo. and the tall arrangements will hopefully make the giant ballroom feel a little smaller and more intimate. but they are actually cool and beaded and match the silver placemat thingy we are using instead of a charger. and its is a candlelabra, so it would be weird to not have candles in what is essentially a candleholder.
i am feeling better about it tonight – i definitely think our plan to take out the lighter lavender pieces will make it look a little less springy and more formal.

I love it!..but of course I love flowers..especially purple! I think I would also take the lamps off of the taller one and put them around the base of the vase. I think it really pulls away from the beauty of the flowers. If you want some lighting up there, why not buy some of those LED lights and have them inserted in the bouquet?

Beautiful colors. Everything matches. I would just remove the lamps. The overall look is gorgeous.
