Good job,  but I think I would leave out the flowers on the table. The two floral areas seem to be fighting each other for attention.

The candle in the bling vase seems a bit disconnected.  I think I would lean towards using mercury glass votives if you want to add candles.

Amazing! My wedding isn’t until October but would love any tips on how you did it! Got all of our florist quotes back this week and we can’t afford any of them!!!

@DCHousewife_2b:  i love them but I agree with @julies1949:  that the flowers at the base take away from the gorgeousness of the rest of it.  Maybe if you made the ring smaller.

AMAZING job though – I would never guess that was DIY!

ETA: is that glowing blue thing part of the centrepiece?

@DCHousewife_2b:  it is beautiful. I too agree, that it may look better with out the flowers at the base. I think it would be more simple/elegant + itll save you time and money.

If you dont want to loose the bottom flowers just make sure that the circumference of them is smaller than the top, because it looks a bit unbalanced/upside down with such a big thick bottom. Maybe choose different/smaller flowers, thin it out or just have the pink flowers at the base. It is very pretty just the way it is, I just think that it could be a pinch betetr (a slight pinch) if you somehow balanced it. Maybe add to the top? if you dont want to take from the bottom

@DCHousewife_2b:  looks gorgeous. I agree with pp though, that the flowers at the base are somewhat stealing the thunder though from the flowers in the vase

Omg that is gorgeous! Please share how you achieved this! I have yet to contact florists for our wedding next year and I’m dreading their quotes :/!

@DCHousewife_2b:  I love the vases and the top flowers….  but I’m with PPs, I don’t really like the flowers on the base

I think the flowers at the bottom are pretty but you could decrease the circumfrence of those and add to the top. It looks very pretty though!!
