I think it’s a great deal price wise, and it’s nice that there are just touches of burlap in the bouquet, but maybe have the stems wrapped in another material, like lace or ribbon so it’s not too much burlap?

Maybe just the stem in burlap or burlap flowers and an alternative material for the stem bit x

KapOct18:  I think normal flowers would fit your theme better. Those aren’t just a touch of burlap and rustic, it’s a whole lot!

I think they’re very pretty, and suit the theme. I think changing the burlap on the stems to cream lace or ribbon sounds like a good idea.

KapOct18:  + 1 to the previous posters who say changing the stem to lace / anything but the burlap

They are cute! Another option would be to do real flowers with a burlap stem, just a thought.

Vintage to me is lace and muted colors.   

I see burlap as rustic.  

They are pretty.

I don’t think they match your theme with all that burlap. I don’t like them.

Burlap isn’t vintage. Not really a fan of them at all.

I love the idea of the lace stem, I think it would give it a more bridal touch. Maybe keep the bridesmaids burlap though to make yours stand out a little more?
