    I like the second arrangement more but I think the person whose opinion is most needed is your fiance. If he doesn’t care, that’s great but I know I would hate to be sitting at my wedding with center pieces I think are ugly. Even if he can barely dress himself, he has an opinion and “ugly” is a harsh opinion to just ignore.

    Can’t you like, lay the wood down… and get rid of the mason jar? That would be good.

    It’s cute, BUT if he hates it, you need to revisit it…it’s not ‘your’ ceterpiece, it’s his, too, What does he want? Is there a way for y’all to compromise something?

    @Stephie07:  I do competetive flower arranging as part of flower shows. So–I LIKE it. haha. Here’s what I like: a big piece of driftwood that is decorated. Now THAT is a statement centerpiece, and nice pieces of driftwoood like that are very expensive. With the bit s of moss and sea creatures, that’s nice.

     

    But the mason jars with covers have to go, they are completely out of place.

    Do think about the problem of a large centerpice like that blocking diners’s views of one another. Typiclaly, thick and tall arrangements are not put on dining tables for that reason.

    The talls ones you see on party dining tables tend to be tall sticks with flowing, big tops that are well above the diners’ heads.

    @EffieTrinket:  Now I just saw the updated version. I say: don’t mix in mild glass anything. Keep it all driftwood and naturals on the driftwood. Add voticvs, they are practicallly invisible.

    I like the updated version but maybe a diff colored orchid? I feel like your inspiration picture used the deep purple orchid for a “pop” otherwise your version only has all neutral tones.

    the revised version looks nice i believe! I like it! but i agree with having scattered candles as a PP said, and i do like the white orchids. i like the natural feel of it all, good job!

    I think maybe little bowls or mason jars with the starfish/anemone things in them, then maybe some pieces of driftwood on either side of them if you’re having long tables, and like maybe alternate between putting some kind of sea-smelling scented candle, and the bowl/jar where pne piece of drifwood ends. Because the driftwood will not be exactly the same length each time, this will give it less of a precise, unnatural feel. I think it’ll be a really nice way to use your ideas in a more practical manner.
