Have you done a trial? Can you post a pic? It’s hard to say without a visual..

It’s hard without seeing a trial picture think. One doesn’t sound right. How about doing 3 calla lilies submerged together or different lengths. Maybe do white lilies, floating candles. purple rocks. If your budget allows then you could add a mirror, votives, or purple petals. Purple rose petals would look just fine!

I wouldnt mix fake and real calla lillies. Just doesnt seem like a good look. 

My idea
Submerge the single lilly with the black rocks, add a nice big floating candle on top. Place the whole hurricaine on a runner with some votives.

Im not sure about the whole lillies AND rose petals thing. Just trying to picture it.

Some inspiration pics.

I went to a wedding with a wine theme. They had one real calla lily in a wine decanter for the centerpieces, it was very simple and elegant. I think with the rocks and the sparkels maybe its too much going on.

I really like the top photo posted by @TheRookieYear:.

It’s not cool that your Bridesmaid or Best Man hasn’t helped with anything so far, but I doubt she was trying to be mean with her feedback..

I think calla lily’s and roses go fine together. You can spruce anything up with rose petals around IMO. 🙂
