    The purple ones look more like flowers. The green one looks like a swirl, still like it but I don’t think “flower”.

    Why don’t you make both shapes? Or even 3-4 shapes? That might be more realistic than a whole bouquet of just 1 shape of flower.

    I agree with the previous posters. The purple one looks more like a flower than the teal.

    @lollieinkansas:  It’s hard to imagine how many of each would be best without seeing it. The best thing to do is probably just make a bunch and play around with it till it looks right.

    First, let me say WOW those ribbon flowers look so pretty! I really like the purple one 🙂

    What colour are the bridesmaid dresses and how else are you incorporating these colours in the wedding party?

    @lollieinkansas:  If it were me, I would decide on a specific flower design for each color (so all purple ribbon is a certain flower style, all teal is another flower style, etc.), and put them together that way. I would do that because 1. that would mimic the way a lot of real flower bouquets are—each plant/flower specices adds a specific color to the bouquet  and 2. it simplifies the process greatly!

    @lollieinkansas:  I don’t think having all four colors would necessarily be too busy, if they’re balanced right (have one color be the main color, with others just as accents), but having fewer colors would work just as well- simplicity is always nice.

    The purple ones look more like flowers. BUT if you do both shapes, or more, I think it would look best. The teal ones on their own don’t look to flowery, but next to the purple ones it looks like rosebuds next to full bloom roses.

    I definitely think you should keep the color variation to a minimum.  I would say pick the color that is most complimentary to the color of the fabrics around it (dresses, tableclothes, etc) and maybe even find a ribbon of the same color but more muted to mix in with the deeper version.  That way you have variation but not a rainbow….
