    I think it is all gorgeous.  The only thing I might change is to make the bouts a bit more full.  They look a little scrawny right now.  Great job!

    Edit:  I voted that they looked fabulous.

    I would add a silk leaf  or two behind the beads on the bout.

    If you want the bridesmaids to have the same flowers as you, I would look for a smaller version, or take this one apart and make it smaller.

    I’m sorry i chose option 3.

    I really like the buttoniere. That is very unique.

    The lantern doesn’t look full enough. It needs more flowers.

    @MissFireFlower:  I really like the inspiration photos, but I think you might want to add a few more flowers to your lanterns. Also, I second the suggestion to add a flower or leaf to the bout, it would help it pop!

    Have you considered looking at Sam’s club for real flowers? You can get great deals on bulk flowers.

    If I were you, I’d replicate the look and feel/colors with affordable in season real flowers or at least higher quality silk. I’m sure it won’t be that expensive. I get roses from Aldi’s for 5 dollars, is there an optin like that?

    @MissFireFlower:  if it’s not for budget reasons, I’d definitely upgrade on the quality of the silk

    I can’t say I’m a fan of fake flowers, but… I really like these! They totally work! However, I agree with the suggestions above to add a leaf behind the boutineer, and a little more volume to the lanterns.

    How do the bridesmaids hold these?

    Who wears the boutineer?

    I’ve never heard of lantern bouquets before so I’m having a hard time envisioning it. I think maybe paper flowers might look nice?
