I think its fabulous! And you have plenty of time to knock out another one before Christmas. You already know how it goes together, so that cuts out a lot of the build time.
I'm with your wife as for as it looks right now. BUT like the rest of the ladies have said, it just isn't finished yet. Swags and or netting would look great. Maybe paint the uprights like a tree and wrap vines around the lower portion and swags for the rest of it.
