    I personally prefer paper flowers BUT that may be b/c my bouquet was paper…

    Out of the 3 pics I definitely prefer the fabric AND I think it woudl fit the formality of your wedding better.

    If you do decide to go with paper I would add another kind of flower in the bouquet to go along with the kusudama. I used rolled roses & the kusudama all different sizes to work for the “shaping” of the bouquet.

    Here’s a pic of mine for reference

    if you have a bit of a whimsical flair in your decor, I say go for the paper because I love how well those boquets photgraph. But it sounds a bit more formal, those pearls would really pop with the Navy dresses and go very well together. That’s the first pearl bouquet I’ve seen before and it’s gorgeous! Maybe do fabric flowers for the bouts?

    I think paper would be too informal, given your wedding.

    The pearl bouquets are beautiful, but you’ll run into the same color problem since I don’t think you can get copper or navy pearls either.

    Fabric seems the best option.

    i would say  pearls- maybe white with some sparkle for you, and you should be able to find dyed glass pearls in copper tones- some of those for bridesmaids?

    How about a mix of Fabric and Pearls?  Or Feathers?  I’ve seen some gorgeous  feather bouquets on the internet, just type in Feather Bouquets in google and search icons.

    @Cariad:  I was thinking the same thing…a mix of fabric and pearls.

    I really like the paper ones but they dont say wedding so much to me.. the fabric ones look great and I think your colors would be amazing 🙂
