    They are a little dark; I’m having trouble deciding if that’s because of the picture or if it’s hard to make out the roses in real life too.  I’m also trying to picture them with the votive candles around them and think that they might look better once there is more light from below.  One more thing you can do to get them to stand out a bit more is to put them and the votive candles all on square or circular mirrors.

    Really excellent start though!

    I think they look pretty good, but maybe trim off a few of the leaves?  Particularly in the bottom picture, the flower is blocked a bit.

    i think it’s pretty, but not in the wedding stye of way – it almost seems kind of dark, emotion wise.  I keep thinking of sinking flowers in reference to death, and throwing flowers in the ocean when someone passes away. 

    Sorry – just wanted to be honest!  It is pretty, but I’m not sure if it’s what you’re looking to convey.

    Lots of people do submerged flowers – I don’t think it’s any kind of death reference!  I say do a trial with the real flowers you plan on using A – to make sure they work and don’t float; and B to see how it will look on wedding day!

    i actually would try adding like 10 votive candles instead of 4-6..it should “brighten” it up a lot.

    I like the design, but I’m worried it will be too big.  It looks like your guests might have a tough time seeing around it.  Maybe you could use shorter vases?  I also agree with PPs on fewer leaves and more votives.

    I actually really like it, I think the votive candles will brighten it up a lot!

    I think using a different flower with looser blooms would be really gorgeous.  The roses are just kind of small in relation to the stems and all the leaves.  Lilies would probably be an improvement, or other flowers that grow along the stem.  I think it’s a great idea though!

    I would pick bigger flowers, but of course that is just an opinion. You should do whatever makes you happy.

    i also agree, smaller and more votives may look best.  the vase seems a little too bulky. Perhaps a taller more narrow vase to give it some dimension. Definitely trim off the leaves from the roses that way you can see the different height of them.

    I agree with the PP’s.  Bigger bloom flower would look fabulous.  The roses get lost in such a big vase, including all those leaves.  How about you take fishing line and use just the rose (or any flower) part (no stems or leaves) and cascade them down the middle of the vase somehow?

    I don’t like the roses in there.. it seems a little morbid to me for some reason.

    i’d use the fake colourful flower-sinkers (not sure what they’re called) that stain the water a pretty color.
