I can’t even see what you are describing because the uplighting is overpowering the pictures so much. Looking at the link, those aren’t going to give off a ton of light. You’d probably need several per vase to even really see them. Maybe order a couple and see what you think? You’re not going to get a powerful color wash like you would with uplighting. It’ll be more of a very soft subtle glow, if anything.

Oh wait…are you saying you want to recreate the washes of color on the walls with floral lights? I thought you just wanted lights in the vases. Those tiny lights won’t do anything like the pictures (thought you wanted us to see lights in the floral arrangements, haha). I actually did have uplighting at my wedding – they are very powerful lights – there’s no shortcut to that. It also wasn’t that expensive, maybe $600 including labor.

I would check around. Lots of event rental companies rent out uplights.  The company I used to work for rented them out for $25 each, and you only needed a few to make an impact.

I’m pretty sure they also use pinspot lighting too over each centerpiece in addition to having candles on the table. Both were recommended by our florist. That’s why you see that circle of light on the table itself.

In the second picture you linked, are you sure there’s no uplighting? I see the draping and the draping is lit up somehow. I’m pretty sure there’s also pinspot lighting on each centerpiece. Uplighting comes in a ton of colors.
