I think it looks great for a Christmas wedding. But it needs a little something around it on the table. Maybe flower petals with candles? Just a suggestion. Nice work!

I think the pomander ball is too small for the vase below it. I believe it’s nice, don’t get me wrong…but I believe the vase is so massive and impressive that the pomander sort of shrinks on top of it.

I dont like it at all. No offense, but it doesn’t look balanced or pretty. The ornaments in the flowers are garish and the as someone mentioned, top is too small to accomodate the size of the vase.

Agree that pomander is too small for the base. I think the overall concept is pretty, but just could be better.

As long as you love it…Does it really matter what we think?  I’d say go for it!

i LOVE the pomanders (if they were bigger), but i’m sorry i just don’t care for the LED lights… I would put branches, holly, hypericum berries, something natural to float in the bottom in the water. The light, IMHO cheapens the beautiful look of the flowers.  I’m having a christmas wedding too, good luck with your plans!!

I’m afraid the lights will end up being too much for the overall look – what is the color of your linens? and the flowers and decoration? you need to consider that as well.

 

I like the jewels 🙂 good job!

I agree. The pom is much too small for the vase. Not really a fan of the jewels in the pom either. Kind of reminds me of those party favor rings you got as a kid. I think White LED lights would be much more elegant. Overall, it’s a good start/

First off I really like the jewels and if you spent a lot of time on them you should use them! I do think though that larger pomanders will balance out the vases. Also, if you are doing red and green uplights and you are alternating the red and green sashes and runners then you should definitely go with a soft white or amber color in the vase to soften the look and make the centerpieces glow.
