THE RESULTS =)
what do you think? they are of course fake flowers so telling me how “fake” or “cheesy” they look is not necessary i would just like to know what you think about it as a whole?
and i cant decided if i like it better with or without the things sticking up.
flowers are not really important to us thats why i dont care about having fake ones. we may end up just getting some from the grocery store the day of as they have what i woul want. not sure yet. and we probably wont have the huge bow on the bottom i just havnt cut it off yet

i would get rid of the thing sticking up on top…it looks good on the sides though. also, cut some stems just to add to the thickness of the handle.

I really like it! Definitely go without the sticky-up thingies, though. As far as it being fake, if you hadn’t said they were, I wouldn’t have been able to tell (except for the fact it’s months before the wedding, lol). It looks great, nice work!

I also think it looks good. I’m with you on the not caring about real flowers. Not sure why; both my FI and I just don’t have a big pref. so why spend the money. 🙂 The handle looks a bit crooked, but not too bad.

@cllyons – You did a great job creating your bouquet! I can’t decide whether I like the things on top or not. On one hand, I like the bouquet to smooth…but, then I think they add some dimension which might be good for photos. So…go with what YOU like!

I think it looks great, but I’m not crazy about the things sticking up or it plain, perhaps you can cut them down a bit or find something else. I like how it gives it textural variation, but not how far it sticks up.

Definitely prefer the second picture over the first. I do like the idea of having something above the main flowers for visual interest, though; I could see something more ethereal like spray pearls looking good.
I really like how you did the wrap 🙂

I like it better without the sticking up bits!

Sometimes I think the more tight the blooms in a bouquet (with faux flowers), the more realistic they look. I’m with the others. Not liking the flowers sticking up. Love the rest of the bouquet.
You did a great job on the handle!
Very pretty ribbon and pin work!

AM not a big fan of the bow at the bottom.. I the flowers sticking out at the sides are nice but the one on top isnt. Overall they look nice

i definitely like it would out the extra texture, but you did a great job. i don’t think it looks cheesy at all. i think that the smaller white flowers with bling will be the perfect final touch!

I think the sticky-outtie things should stick out of the sides. i like the ones that stick out of the sides, but the one sticking out the top reminds me of Cindy Lou Who for some reason.
I personally would go with a different ribbon. I like the flowers a lot; I think for me it’s the ribbon that’s not diong it. The fact that you can’t see any green whatsoever makes it look less “real”.
