Just looking for some other opinions. There are two centrepieces I am deciding between – the first, callas and orchids, $70 per centrepiece, one vase per table.
The second, submerged callas, two per table ($50).
We will have approximately 8 round tables of 10 – mostly white, with just a little navy blue (napkins, gifts) and two luminaries per table. We’re trying to keep things elegant and simple.
Which would you go with?

@yaena: I like both!! Why don’t you use both and alternate them??? It would give your tables more depth. As the Callas and orchids are tall and the lillies are short!!

I like #1 much better. I’m not a fan of the flowers submerged in water thing.

@yaena: I like the second one. The first one reminds me of asparagus..

@yaena: If it were my decision I’d go with the second one simple because I feel like the first looks someone made a mistake- like the stems were too short/thick to go all the way down into the vase, and I don’t think the orchids in the first one add much- I think they’d look better maybe tied around the vase instead of the stems of the calla lilies? Good choice with the calla’s- I LOVE them!

I LOVE #1 with the callas and orchids. It is much more elegant and original, but it won’t have the same impact with one vase per table.
Be sure to adjust your expectations.

I like both, but I have a question about option two. You said “Two per table” – is that one vase with two callas, or two vases with two callas each? The reason I ask is that groupings are more asthetically pleasing in odd numbers – the two callas in one vase is fine, or two callas in three vases, but I wouldn’t do two callas in two vases, if that makes sense.

I love both, they’re similar but I think #1 takes the cake!! a bunch of brides on wedding.choisr.com have somewhat similar centerpiece designes, it’s a great place to get some inspiration and off the wall ideas! 🙂

I LOVE the first one. The Lillies look they are drownding in the second one.

The first one is lovely in part because there are four vases on the tables. If it were just one vase, it’d look as sparse as the second image. If you can figure out how to do shorter/smaller versions of the first in greater quantities, I’d do that.

I feel like the submerged flowers thing has been done and overdone. Also, I don’t see what the difference between using silk and real flowers is if you’re just putting them in water. You could use silk and save $40/centerpiece! Just my opinion…

@Sweetescape1976: +1! Yes and you could have the fancier ones at head tables and parents tables, to sort of make them look special!
