I really like the Pier One flowers (minus the greenery and better arranged, a little smaller). But – I am super biased. I do not love all-calla lilly bouquets. I think they look odd in general and are hard to get to make a nice shape. I think the fullness of the Pier One flowers is a much nicer look.

Ok, this is out of your specifed price range, but I bought my 21 piece bridal flowers from this seller, they are not these flowers mine are plum and white. The link is for a 21 piece package, but they will sell you by the piece, what if you had a brown ribbon where the pinkish/ivory ribbon is at the bottom of this bouquet?

@MissFireFlower:  Have you looked into Accents and Petals? They have beautiful wooden flowers. I don’t remember if you said they were out of bounds. Did you see any that you may have liked on Etsy but was out of the price range? Maybe you could talk to the seller about making you a bouquet to fit the budget! Just some thoughts. I’ll keep on the lookout. Good luck 🙂

The one that you made just doesn’t looK full enough in my opinion. The one from Pier One is a little too full…If you take out all the greenery I think it would look a lot better and would look nice with your colors.

I think a feather fringe would make your calla lilly bouquet into a bridal bouquet- give it a little more presence.I’m not sure which of those calla pics would be your bouquet , but I would try a feather fringe and a ribbon wrap.

I know you said you dont want real flowers, but our grocery stores have amazing selections here in colorado, way less than $100. That being said-I like the pier one flowers better than the calla’s, maybe if you threw something in w/the callas, like a rose or a peony, I am not sure. Google boquets or weddings and find something you like w/the callas and see if you can find a better picture to guide you -is what I’d do. Good luck.

@MissFireFlower:  

 I personally think it’s alot easier to have someone else make it for you. I’m getting real touch flowers and the person I’m using is called Bloom Bridal..I think she is also on Etsy but her website is bloombridal.com She has some really great stuff and is very helpful

I like the all white calla lillies with the cuff if the cuff were in a different color. Like just an ivory cuff or something. I don’t love the pink calla lillies.

@MissFireFlower:  What about a single sprig of cherry blossoms for your girls, something bigger and fuller for you (with the sprigs tied in) with everything wrapped in ivory ribbon?

I think part of the problem is that your bouquet looks too tight and small. You can still use those callas and maybe just build upon it. Not sure where you can find silk cherry blossoms, but maybe adding some of that in there to go with your theme? 

Why don’t you want to use real flowers? You can definitely make a bridal bouquet for much less than $100. In fact, you can even use your calla lilies and then add real flowers on the outside to hide the bright green color. For a May wedding, you should be able to find tulips or even peonies at a reasonable price. Pink wax flower attached to curly willow branches would make a great accent, and it looks similar to cherry blossoms.

@MissFireFlower:  Are you dead set against real flowers? The pics you posted of the callas look nice but personally I like a larger fuller bouquet. A Bee posted on there stating that Whole Foods does lovely arrangements; at the cost of the flowers at retail posted price. Maybe that’s a possibility?
