Trying to figure out my centerpieces…. My colors are green and blue, with hints of orange. I don’t want real flowers (allergic), so sticking to paper flowers throughout the wedding. Here is a mock up, please tell me what you think? The candle inside the lantern is a battery operated one and flickers. There also is a candle inside of the 7 the flickers, and I will be putting those water beads inside the flower vase, but didn’t want to do them right now as the wedding is still 7 months away. There will also be a picture of us in the frame in the middle.
The two pictures show one where the other 2 items are close to the lanters, other is farther away. does the first one seem too cluttered? second too far apart? which is better? Does this centerpiece look nice or does it look cheap? Thanks in advance for the help!
If it helps – our theme is “a country boy and a city girl”

i do like it but here are my suggestions , take in mind i dont know you or your wedding dream.
1)i would recommend silk flowers, they are more realistic and no alergies to worry about. but paper flowers give more of a artisic feel if thats what you want
2) i like the first layout the best, but it does seem a little cluttered
3) two different non-corrdenating light sources is a lot to take in as your sitting down. my solution is instead of a electric candle, fill it with candy or place the number candle holder in the lantern and decor the lantern with paper (or silk) flowers and ditch the vase for a more centered look and it would solve the cluttered feeling

Ok my honest opinion …
it’s a little cluttered and lots of colours so I’d get rid of the picture frame all together (too distracting) and I’d stick with 1 kind of paper flower (the orgami ones is what I’d stick with), maybe do 3 flowers (2 orange & 1 blue) & use clear beads in the jar & keep the tall things with the flowers to give height.
I think that will improve the overall look and make it look higher end.
I’d keep just those flowers, and do 3 of them.

What a fun color palette! The first one seems too cluttered because there’s a lot going on and all pushed together. I like that it is eclectic, though.
I would stick to the one type of flower like MrsN2Be said. Maybe use 2 or 3 colors and one type of paper flower. I would get rid of orange plate and fabric circle underneath, neither of those say country or city to me. I would add fresh fruit, (oranges, limes, orange colored tomatoes) to get those colors in and still use some naturals without using flowers. Fruit/veggies = country to me.
But, what I think you are missing is the “city” part. The lantern, the flowers, the table number all say country.
I hope that was a little helpful! Good luck!

I really like the idea, but it seems a little cluttered. I would reccomend splitting them up…maybe one table with a lantern and the orange plate and another with the green glitter mat and the flowers? I think it would look much nicer seperated and make each setting different–one being more country and one being more city. Cute theme by the way! 🙂

i love these colours together. i did a bday party in these colours years ago and it was great.
your paper flowers are cute but to be honest your centrepieces are a bit cluttered. my eyes didn’t know where to look. there are too many different things going on. if you want it big, then use a lot of 1 thing (like 3-5 lanterns of different sizes) with little accents. or use 1 big thing with smaller accents but not too many types of accents. the sequin mat and then the charger are a bit redundant. i can’t make out the square thing in the front. what is that? a frame? ask yourself what you want the focus to be… the lantern, the paper flowers? then, use that as your main and then scale back on everything else.

I agree that it is a bit cluttered. Items tend to look better in 3’s so I would get rid of the silver thing (frame?). I would also get rid of the plate only because it is hard to make the items fit nicely together with it. If you need the orange maybe you can get the green matt in orange? Also if your theme is country I might try distressing the lattern, might give it some nice texture. I love the colors! Great theme!

I love the idea of paper flowers, and i almost used this idea for my wedding till i discovered singed/fabric flowers.
paper flowers with rhinestone button centers
singed flowers/my actual wedding bouquet 🙂
