Ok so my wedding isn’t until May but I’m already freaking out about almost everything lol. I have been working on my centerpiece but can’t get them perfected.
The first picture was my first attempt and I found two things extremely annoying… one I couldn’t get the flowers to float without them flipping over and two the flower was too big on the front of the vase so I went with the ribbon flower in picture 2. I don’t know what to do now because I kind of like the flowers floating but the centerpieces I see with the flowers submerged are really pretty but I don’t know how they stay in place. Please I am open for any and all suggestions or opinions I’m trying to make these the best they possibly can be 🙂 thanks.

I would try that gel water stuff. I am not a fan of the ribbon flower maybe try a smaller flower for the front. I do really like everything in picture 1. The gel water may keep the flowers in place.

Here’s the problem. You have a footed vase which doesn’t lend itself to floating flowers. Floating flowers look good in a low wide dish with maybe a couple of floating candles, and a few dendrobium orchids floating, not daisies, and of course use the slices and the glass pebbles. If you still want to use the high vase, I would suggest Dendrobium orchid sprays pushed down between the slices and pebbles and coming out of the top of the vase, with a branch or two in the middle.

I read somewhere in my infinite search for a similar centerpiece idea that to get the flowers to stay in place you either have to have a floating candle at the top or if you are using flowers with stems, you can weight them down (and wedge them between) rocks or gemstones at the botom of the vase. Here’s the picture that i love – I believe it’s from one of the boards here on Wedding Bee.
