Centerpiece Schmenterpiece

I'm feeling generally uninspired about the flowers for our wedding. We can't settle on colors, flowers or even how to present them. It's not that I don't have my favorite blooms (hello, ranunculus!) Even though I spend countless hours looking at stunning centerpieces online, nothing is jumping out at me for us really...and I feel strangely compelled to use our (almost reserved) reception space's available hurricane/candle centerpiece with something like a flower ring. Yes...it's a little old-fashioned, but that's almost why I think I like it. Here's a few not-too-horrible samples (with different flower colors, of course.) See? No baby's breath in sight! Could look good with our gold plate chargers too, don't you think?

Another option we're considering is something like a fab-o vintage hobnail vase with a mix of greenery and flowers (similar to this image but perhaps a bit darker or brighter, given that it's a evening wedding in November.)

Lastly...we're also considering taking on the task of buying bulk flowers and sticking them into some sort of vase and calling it a day. For this, I am a fan of these flowers:

Oh jeesh (as D. would say.) What to do, what to do...
