    They’re not exactly the same, but they’re still pretty. I think with a little tweaking they will be beautiful. I think the taper candles are prettier than the votives.

    I don’t like the little candles. I think that is what is throwing me off a bit. Also there needs to be more roses. The colors seem to bright in the mock ups.

    @atlbride2013:  Honestly, I think the flowers look gorgeous. Your guests will only see them as they are, not as they are compared to your inspiration!

    Your inspiration photos weren’t available – that’s why it wasn’t the same. It’s also possible your budget didn’t allow for it to be as large/full as the inspiration photo. If that’s the case, it might be helpful to think of some alternatives that are equally chic but less $$

    Well the obvious difference is the tall tapered candles versus the tea lights. Do you know if your venue allows an open flame?

    I do like the mock ups however I agree with the PP that they are more vibrant and bright (a lot of white flowers with hints of color) versus the inspiration which is rich in color with hints of white.

    I honestly think it’s very beautiful. I agree with the other bee, it needs subtle tweaking and the taper candles would definitely be better.

    First thought neither the bouquet nor the centerpeice looks wonderful (and it’s not that it’s not true to your inspiration) I actaully think the look/ quality of is sub-par.

    i like the low ones a lot better. idk what exactly is off for me on the taller ones, but i dont like tall centerpieces in general so maybe that’s all it is

    i think they’re gorgeous, and i might actually like them better than your inspiration.

     

    its the color that is off, i guess? your florist went more springy than subdued? i get that, i also had a september wedding and tried my best to stay away from anything bright.

    maybe show her specific flower colors? like a sahara rose, etc.

    Ooohh I see what you’re saying and I’d be disappointed too.  The really large flowers – are they white hydrangeas?  Kind of throw off the balance – I’d ask for more roses like the inspiration.  Also, the inspiration photo seems to be a larger sphere with more on the bottom – maybe you need to add fullness underneath what’s there?  And the greenery throws it off – either have it throughout or not at all – this to me is a way of creating cheap fullness but the leaves aren’t the same shape as the flowers.

    good luck!

    It looks like your inspiration picture had a lot more roses than the mock-ups. The Mock-ups are also much smaller.

    It isn’t anything tweaking can’t fix– they need more roses, less hydrangias, and a different holder. Also, slightly more greenery.
