It looks beautiful! I don’t think you should change it at all. I agree with keevolpi. That is not going to be their main focus for the day anyway, so it’s just a lovely accent to go with the main event: your marriage!

Be proud that you made it yourself, and if others don’t like it, screw ’em. It’s your wedding and should reflect your personality and likes! And I’m sure your SO doesn’t actually care all that much about it. If he did, he would have tried making it himself.

You managed to go off the beaten track in an elegant manner with your arbor decor.  Sometimes, when people see a design element that is not typical, they react the same way your Fiance and his friends did. They are not used to it; they find it strange.  Trust your design instinct; do not second guess it.

On another note, it would be a good idea to reach an understanding with your Fiance as to sharing your ideas with others for their opinions. Tell him what you feel comfortable with, and what you don’t.

Honestly when the first looked at it, I thought it wasn’t finished. It’s not quite asymmetrical enough for me to realize it’s supposed to be like that- if that makes sense. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and you did an amazing job with the flowers, but something about it is bothering me. I think there’s too much bulk in the middle to have a truly asymmetrical look

Gah! These guys and their ideas that everything has to be symmetrical! I’m doing mismatched milk glass vases for our centerpieces and have been looking for cheap milk glass at thrift stores. Every time my fiancé is with me when I buy one he’s like “Do you have any others like that? Will it be an even number of that kind?” For the bazillionth time NO!! It’s supposed to be mismatched! It will NOT be symmetrical, they will NOT match, they will NOT be in sets, and the centerpieces at each table will be different! I told him he’s got about 10 months to get used to it before the wedding lol. Meanwhile I have about 40 milk glass pieces sitting on our dining room table and he has arranged them into matching patterns and sets lol πŸ™„

I think your arbor decor looks awesome! I think your fiancé is going to think any decor on the arbor is going to look odd when it’s sitting in your house and not seen in the context of the wedding. If he had walked up to it at the wedding he probably wouldn’t think it looked odd at all. I’d stick with the female opinions on it and don’t worry about what the guys say lol.

ETA: After posting I just walked into the kitchen to find my fiancé taking all the shelves out of the kitchen cabinets to trace them to cut shelf liner to fit each one….. I think his OCD tendencies are getting worse lol. I showed him the pic of the arbor and he goes “Why is it uneven?” It’s clearly just a boy thing lol. Just put a “No boys allowed” sign on the room it’s in and only let females see it until the wedding lol. It looks great πŸ‘πŸ»
