I love this (: I actually have these exact same balls in my living room as decoration, they’re so pretty 😉  I think it would look really lovely with the bow.

I think the one bigger one with the dark on it is okay, but I agree them together is a little off looking. It is super fun!!

Cute but once I saw the testicular comment I can’t see anything else lol! I’d probably eliminate one of them so you dont’ think about ti every time you see your pictures!

 

Can I ask where you got those little flowers? Those are adorable!

The BMs’ bouquets are amazing! I agree on the ahem, testicular comment, tho on yours. Do your organza bow to soften it, give it a ballectomy and you’re good to go! Such a cool concept. Very nicely done and something I haven’t seen a million of.

I love the idea of the bow but also some woodsy feathers could really help it pop and soften the look

I agree that it would benefit from something soft added. I love the idea of feathers. You could also try dried grasses, or raffia.

You might also check out sola flowers. They’re the same material as your balls, so they’d fit right in, and they’re also quite cheap.

To fix your testicle bouquet problem: one of the issues is that there’s two large balls. Florists usally do things in odd numbers, so 3 would work, and 1 might work.

Also, the way you’ve constructed your bouquet, they stick up quite a bit because of their size. If you give the smaller items a longer wire, to the top surface of your bouquet is more even, it’d look more cohesive.

Your bridesmaids bouquets are cute, too. Only a couple things stick out to me. One is the colour of the green twine balls. It’s much more of a dyed hue, and doesn’t fit in with the rest of the colours in your bouquets. But, if you’re using that shade elsewhere in your wedding, it’d be fine.

The other thing is that little bundle of raffia on the side of one of your Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets. It’s a bit out of place, since all the other elements are rounded. I’d replace that with a ball, and cut open the bundle, so you have a bunch of little pieces of raffia, and then maybe wire some of those seperately so that the ends stick out wispy-like from your bouquet.

Really, I think it’s a fantastically unique idea. It’ll fit in perfectly for your orchard wedding, and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of compliments from your guests.
