    I think the jar is… ok.

    but the wood is very large.  and bulky.

    I really like the idea of driftwood centerpieces for an eco/outdoorsy wedding. But I don’t quite like yours. It’s a weird shape that I don’t really get and I agree with other PPs that it’s too big.

    I do think it’d look much better with some orchids tho!

    I really like this:

    I like the idea you were going for, but I hate your center pieces. The jars look out of place and just not at all pretty or elegant. The grapewood actually is pretty, but doesn’t look right for a wedding center piece.

    I think you have the right idea, but might need to modify your design a bit.  I really don’t like the doily jar.  Can you stick to just branches?  Smaller wood and a bit of playing around will your elements will do the trick.  I like the sample you posted!

     

    And if you’re feeling a bit disheartened after all the work you did, don’t worry about it!  Many creative endeavors require a few tries before getting it right!

    I like the centrepiece/wood, but I would lose the crocheted mason jar. I also feel like the starfish is a bit off-centre with the vibe of the rest of it. I feel like it’s really natural and rustic, but the jar sticks out to me/competes for attention. I would go for a smaller, simpler glass votive.

    it sort of looks like naked mermaids laying on each other. Soo…I would maybe add flowers or something.

    They’re not hideous.  Exactly.  Can’t wait to see the updated new ones, though.  😉

    If you downsize, and they were like 1/4 the size, then they would be perfect!

    That is kind of large for a table. Something a little more delicate? But I definitely get and appreciate your vision.
