I’m doing submerged blue dendrobium orchids as my centerpieces, but can’t decide how many i should have per vase – either 2 stems or 3?? The vases are 20″ and 24″ cylinders – half and half so i can have some visual height interest.
I’m pretty sure they are using 2 per vase in this pic –
Also, another thing I am undecided over is the mirror underneath the vases like this (I will have 3 tealight candles around the vase with or without the mirror). What do you all think? I did get pin lighting in our lighting package, so each centerpiece will have its own spotlight basically.

That is what we plan on doing! Blue orchids are our main flower! Seeing that reminds me of how pretty it will look.
I would stick to 2 stems. 1 might not be enough and 3 would be so full you would lose the look of the flower and end up with just a crowded vase of pretty colors.

@Mrs Hedgehog: I would love to see pics after your wedding!
Thanks for the reply! Now that you’ve said that, I totally see what you mean…it’d be WAY to much with 3! Awesome..means less money! lol.
What are your bouquets like?? Its my main flower as well!

great choice! We did one stem. I felt that 2 was too much but I guess it depends on how open the blooms are too. And I prefer the CP’s without the mirror.

@JessicaDolly: I actually have 2 main flowers. Blue orchids and Calla lilies. This is how she describes my boquet on the contract:
Bold Blooms of Blue and Purple Hydrangea, Lisianthus/Stock and Blue/Green Orchids with White Miniature Calla Lily Accents; Rhinestone and AB Swarovski Crystals within Bouquet;
My BM’s have calla bouquets so that wouldn’t help you much but all my men have orchid bouts with grass loops with the exception of Mr Hedgie who’s will have a calla and orchid bout.
The moms are having orchid and Calla lilie mix corsages and nosegays.
I wish I would give you a better idea with pictures. I wish I could give ME a better idea with pictures too! But since she hasn’t ever made these arrangements before she doesn’t have pictures of them… sad… lol
But good luck! It’s great to see somebody else with my flower! It is just too pretty.

I’m doing submerged orchids. I was originally going to do like you are doing and my florist recommended using 2 stems. However, I’m now going to do them on a string so each bloom would be tied on a clear string but still using about 2 stems worths of flowers total.

I really love the blue orchids and was planning on doing something very similar, but I was told that the dye from the orchids will turn the water colors.
