    I think they look wonderful, I wouldn’t worry about the fatter one – I wouldn’t have noticed a difference if you hadn’t pointed it out.  Do you have any colors in your wedding scheme?  Because color wise, there isn’t any.  You mentioned the amber uplighting in the venue, have you considered amber glass beads in one or all of the vases?  They look great the way they are…  I’m just curious.

    this is not bad, but i like the flowers in the inspiration…i think it adds something, and you wouldn’t have to use that many blooms!

    I love it! I originally wanted to do something like that put instead of the flowers do ornaments (for x-mas theme) but it was going to be WAYYY to much work!

    Where’s the “I <3” it choice?!? It looks great – very close to the inspiration – and I even like the framed mirror.

    If you want an “amber” element, what about a deeper shade of ivory for the candles? Or a small amount of of colored water in the smaller votives? Otherwise – I think they’re perfect.

    I lot of submerged flowers are orchids, they are beautiful & I don’t THINK they look like a “hooha”!

    These are very small orchids, but they make much bigger ones.

    Just if you are looking for flowers.

    This is one of my favorites! Orchids, tulips & cherry blossom

    You could also submerge succulents, long grasses, pretty much anything if you try.

    I also think that varying the widths and heights of the arrangement makes it more viusually interesting.  I say keep the fat one!

    I say keep it the way it is, if you’re happy with it. But if you feel like something is missing, I suggest doing what other bees have said, submerging flowers. I think the cherry blossom idea is a great idea, if that’s within your color scheme. I get you on the whole flower looking like a “hooha”, and a lot of them do look like it. LOL! I think it looks beautiful just the way it is.

    Looks great!! Flowers would be pretty, but is and added cost that is not needed. I don’t think that your guests will pay attention anyhow. I say go with what you have. Good job!!! =)
