You could make crystal stems for the bouquets to add a bit of sparkle.  You could also wrap the tall vases in ribbon and attach a brooch onto the women.  I’m not sure what your theme is- I personally think the vases and flowers being plain are lovely.  You could also add some flower petals/orchids or candles to the tables.

What is the theme/general feel of your wedding? Or any other colors you would like to include?

You can fill the tall vase and float the one flower in it and have a floating candle/possibly petals on top of the water floating.

For a little sparkle maybe crystals in the water?

add a few votives

confetti is cheap and great way to bring in some color

little aquarium/vase gems are relatively inexpensive and add color and/or sparkle

spread a few rose petals around the vase

For vases that are tall and thin (18 to 24 inches in height), a suggestion that I’ve shared with my clients is to fill the vase with crystals or glass beads/gems that coordinate with your two primary wedding colors.  Then pour water into the vase as you normally would.  If the lighting at your reception is going to be low, try using colored cellophane loosely bunched in the vase instead of beads and surround the vase with three or four votive candles to enhance the shimmer of the cellophane.  Granted, it sounds a little odd, but the effect can be pretty.

Good Luck!
