    I dont love the light in the vase. But otherwise I love it. I don’t like (silly) that the light in the vase has blue in it and the light in the candles have a yellow tint.

    @ChuckNorris:  Agreed.

    OP- if you don’t mind sharing, how much is your centerpiece? I’m looking at a centerpiece of that size and I totally think my florist is ripping me off.

    The flowers themselves look gorgeous but I have to be 100% honest and say I really dislike the light in the vase. I was just at a wedding that was golds and pinks and it was stunning, and inside the vase were these lights and it just totally threw off the whole romantic, dim light ambiance. I think you should add some more candles around the centerpiece if you want a golden glow and ditch the light.

    Very stunning!

    However,i don’t like the light in the vase and there is something about the dark maroon ribbon interwoven that is bothering me. Maybe try a lighter ribbon? Or no ribbon at all and add Hydrangeas?

    I definitely don’t think it needs MORE…I actually think it’s a little overwhelming.  But if “alot” is your thing then I definitely think this is it.  I wouldn’t do any more.

    I think I would have to see the venue because it is very large. Also, I dont much care for the light or the flowers in the vase. It just has a lot going on. The flowers are beautiful though.

    Gorgeous flowers!  I also vote to take out the light from inside the vase…and I’d go a step further and take everything out from inside the vase.

    @Marquise123:  Thanks. Good to know. My florist, as I suspected, has completely lost her mind in terms of money. I think you got a great deal!

    Love the flowers, not the light or weird rock things at the bottom.

    I think it is beautiful. I see what you mean by adding a little fluffiness to it though. Maybe you could take out those red leaves and maybe even some of the little pink flowers (bouvardia?) and substitute for hydrangeas. It might make it more expensive though. Just talk to your florist. Even if you leave it, it still looks great and I think you got an awesome deal.

    As far as the lights, I agree with everyone else. I made the mistake of buying white floralytes for my centerpieces. I think if you get amber yellow, as it would look nice and more like a candle in the water. Either that or get rid of the lights.

    I think it’s gorgeous as is!!!  I’ve seen centerpieces like this at weddings before and I think the light in the vase is great.
