    If you are on a budget and dont want to upgrade I would consider removing the baby’s breath and opting for a clear vase with floral wire. Baby’s breath is dated and maybe incorporating some other flowers would change the look of it.

    If you have the money, I would definitely say upgrade. i loved your inspriational picture. Very classy.

    If you can afford it, get the flowers you want.

    If you want to save money:  stick with the venue.

    They look ‘fine’… but personally, I’m not a fan of colored water or baby’s breath.  That said:  if it were INCLUDED – I’d probably do it!  The baby’s breath is the worst part of it for me (but that’s just because I don’t like it).  If you were trying to cut costs, I’d say it’s worth it to talk to the florist to see what other options they could come up with (instead of all roses).

    I also adore the idea of a gold candelabra (any pics of it from the venue?), which is why I’m leaning toward ‘upgrade’.

    ALL THAT SAID – your mom and BM’s are right – those really will be fine … but if you don’t really like them now – you aren’t really going to like them then.

    I let my florist surprise me with what he did – and while I wasn’t terribly crazy about how the centerpieces turned out, they were perfectly fine and it didn’t really matter.  And, it helped that i loved the arrangements he did for the ceremony, which ended up at either end of our head table… and the head table flowers rocked my world.

    your upgrade is soooo nice. The baby’s breath with very few roses kind of looks like a cheap grocery store bouquet to me. Your upgrade is so much more sophisticated!

    If I were you without a doubt I would much rather save my money and go with the original venue provided one.

    I think they are fine… I would go with the clear vase with clear water and buy gold flakes to have (think Goldshalger) floating or settled at the bottom of the vase.  I say save the $$… but that’s also coming from someone making her own centerpeices.

    I agree with crayfish.  If you can fit it into your budget definitely do the upgrade – it’s absolutely gorgeous!!!

    What if you keep the original glass vase but replace the baby’s breath with more roses? This may be less expensive than paying the rental fee for the candelabras but you still get the flowers you want.

    I vote to save your money, but go with clear water instead of dyed (I’m a fan of the natural look – and it’s a bit more environmentally friendly).
