We are doing the same things for our centerpieces but with calla lilies! I am going to do rocks on the bottom with a fishing weight on the flowers. Could you wrap the bottom of your flowers and hide a weight in the wrap? Even if you tied a weight on the bottom with fishing line, you shouldn’t be able to see it unless you looked close, so you should be ok.

couldn’t you try putting some hot glue on the bottom of the stem. not the tip or the orchid wouldn’t get water, but on the stem, or under the flowers or something. hot glue dries clear and fast so that should work. you can always do a test run.

We did that with roses.  We used aquarium rocks for the bottom.  To keep the flower in place we had wet floral foam in the vase first.  Then added rocks, then stuck the flower in the floral foam.  It worked out surprisingly well.  To do it without rocks, I know I’ve seen people use fishing wire.  They glue that to the bottom with aquarium glue then tie it to the stem of the flowers.
