I think they are really cute!  I think they could be a bit “fuller” though?  It seems like other ones I have seen are thicker stalks.  Maybe pull those closer together or add a bigger ribbon?

I agree with PP that it just needs to be a LITTLE bit fuller and then it would be perfect. Great job!!!

To make it look a little bit more full for the GM, you can vary the height of the wheat  and slightly overlap them like in the inspiration photo, and maybe put a sage colored leaf behind the wheat.  I think it would be great if you did the same for the groom, except just add a few of those berries. . .I forget what they call them, but they do look very nice.   Awesome!

It looks like that inspiration picture has 4 stalks and yours only had three.  I think that fourth one might be key. 

As far as pinning it on, I have no idea.  To be honest I’m not sure I know how a bout goes any normally. 

I think you should make the grooms a bit different to stand out some. The picture you posted looks like they added hypericum berries and soming else (lavender?).  I think maybe if you did one or the other that might be about right.

Here are a few more options.

Here is another one with hypericum berries:

Here is one with a green kermit mum.

i love your bouts! i agree making them a bit fuller will help them out a bit.  as far as pinning them on…  the pin is under the lapel and goes through the back of the ribbon on the bout that is holding it together and back out without showing on the front of the lapel, magic!  =D
