I think that is very lovely and very magical-foresty-looking. Maybe some green the color of the frame on the numbers, something like, raffia draped around selected branches? I really think it’s lovely. I think a little color up top would make it  pop. Smile

I think it looks good! Maybe add some white flowers and green hanging amaranthus to the branches?

I LOVE the taller vases! And I am so sad I couldn’t drag Fiance to Michaels today. LOL

Love the vase and frame. I woudl remove the smaller scattered items. Less is more and it just screams home-made to me- not that it looks bad, just doesnt look as good as it could. I do like the idea of something draping from the branches like @natbug21:  suggested though

@HappilyEverAfter54:  I think this picture has been around here already, because I found it on another thread, but this is what I’m using as my inspiration (minus the candles). It doesn’t have to be the dendrobium orchids in there either, any tall white flowers would work I think!

Ugh I can’t add pics with my iPad for some reason! But I think what you described sounds beautiful!

ETA: ok I don’t even wanna say this but I feel like I have to cause I’ve been following your wedding decor forever and feel like a part of it lol 🙂 but I think the vase needs to be shorter 🙁 just so the branches can spread out a little and everything isn’t so straight up and down. I know you just went through all that trouble but I really thnk itwould look bettit waste vase was a little shorter..

you can always try these orchid flowers from ikea the price is great….

and FYI when your shopping with coupons at michaels check acmoore online they have 50% coupons more often than michaels and you can use them both in michaels and joanns fabrics etc to get your wedding decor much cheaper…good luck

 

oh and i do agree with the post suggesting shorter vases…slightly shorter and slightly wider so the branches will be more open and look more like your inspiration pic.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  You don’t always have to have the same flowers for every table! You could use different white flowers and just have some tables with those orchids, some tables with other kinds (I really don’t know flowers that well or else I’d name some others, but I’ve seen ones that would work in Michaels). 

But I think the flowers you have would look quite nice.
