Well you go girl! You are so on top of things. . .BRAVO!

I love all of your ideas. . .very cool. Personally, im not a matchy match person so i think the bouqets and the bouts are cool. . .besides the bouts tie in nicely with the rest of the decor. Love the table arrangement ideas; just one thing you may want to re-think is having the fish in the centerpieces. . . if you arent careful you may have some dead fish by the end of your reception. . just a thought

I think the bouts are cool too! I just showed them to my guy & he loved them (he’s not really into flowers…lol). And when they are on the men, they’ll look great. I think if you added anything to them, it might look too much "stuff", I like the clean look of them based on your decor pic. Also I wouldn’t worry about the flowers being mismatched, they’re beautiful.

i agree with the first comment about rethinking the fish. dead fish aren’t pretty at a wedding, and honestly, i’m not for handing out live creatures as favors.

perhaps keeping with the orchids & candles would be a more hassle-free alternative 🙂

I think everything looks great. You’ve been working hard! One thing I will say, is that while the bouts look good, they do look a little "unfinished". Wrap some nice ribbon around them and I think they’ll look perfect. I also didn’t see a picture of pails or ribbons, did I miss it?

Everything looks so lovely!  For a September wedding, you’re way ahead of the game!  :o)

I love the sweet touch of having the charm with your grandfather’s photo.  I’d like to do something similar to honor my grandparents.  Can you share how you made yours?

be careful with the fish for your centerpieces. the only types of fish i know that can stay alive for long periods of time in that kind of environment are beta fish, but you can’t have more than one in a container as the pretty ones are all male and they fight. also, floating candles… i don’t think that’s very safe for any fish.
