    I feel like it just doesn’t flow right or something. It looks like too much. IMO.

    I can tell you’re really trying to put a lot of thought/effort into this, but my concern is that it will make it difficult for guests to look at the person sitting across from them and might impede conversation.

    They remind me of something that would be in a fish tank.

    I did not vote because I don’t think it’s ugly. But it is also not my cup of tea. I don’t think i would go to a wedding and say “wow that thing is ugly”. I think it’s too hard and sparse looking if that makes sense? Maybe something could be added to the branches?

    I think it’s quite artistic and I cna imagine it with the orchids and it looks beautiful, but I think’s a bit all over the place if you’re having round tables. It’ll look fantastic on a long table or your guestbook table or a candy buffet but maybe it’s too much for a small rounded table.

    I think the branch is a little too heavy looking, maybe something more delicate?  Also, on the jar it looks like a (sorry, I dont know what its called – the crochet item) looks very off and doesnt seem to fit in.

    IMO, the wood is TOO large

    What if you used long, low pieces of driftwood instead? I like the “look” of what you have, but they’re too tall for tables I think. I feel like they would be in the way of people who were sitting across from each other and wanted to talk. Also I don’t know if the crochet matches. What about trying some raffia instead? You could also add touches of beach glass, that would go with your theme I think!

    I like it!!!  I think once you add the orchids – it will look more “wedding”.  I definitely see where youre going with it though!!!

    My FH thinks my ideas are crazy too – dont worry, they dont understand!

    Yeah, I agree with the above posters. I think the wood is just a bit too thick, and something about the doily on the jar doesn’t seem to fit right.

    I don’t think it’s ugly at all, I think it’s quite cool, especially for a vintage hawaii beachy kinda theme!!  I think the problem is it’s on your kitchen counter and not on a long dinner table with nice linens, nothing in the background, etc.  I can totally see your vision.  The only thing I will say is that if your tables are round, the driftwood (?) may be a little too much length-wise.
