    I love them!  They’re nice and will last forever, you won’t have to worry about them getting ruined, and they’re pretty!

    A lot that I’ve seen I don’t really like and they look to craft show to me.

    Those, though? Those are awesome. Do it!

    I love felt and fabric bouquets, they’re fun alternative to real flowers and you get to keep them forever. I’m not a fan of freeze dried bouquets stuck in a dome – my sister did this and it’s totally her style, but not mine. One thing to keep in mind though if your wedding is going to be on the more formal side, they may look out of place, especially if you go with colors that aren’t found in nature (You may not, based on the sample pics you posted). If you’re going all out with whimsical DIY, they’ll probably fit in perfectly. I actually considered going with that shop you posted, but went another route.

    The ones you posted are fantastic!  I would go with that shop- I think if they look either real or very whimsical, it will look amazing.  Good luck!

    I love those. I’m crocheting the flowers for my bouquet, so I’m going an even more craftsy route..

    I like them, as long as you boldly go in the “these are not real flowers” direction — like by using colors and fabrics that couldn’t possibly be real. You definitely want them to make a statement, as opposed to just being a poor man’s flower bouquet, if that makes any sense. You want people to know you used fabric flowers intentionally!

    I made a fabric flower corsage for Future Mother-In-Law and it’s a real statement piece in a way that real flowers or even silk flowers can’t be! (haha and it looks better in person, I swear)

    @kalcote what did you decide to do?  I was looking at those exact etsy boquets – it looks like they do really nice work.  I’m debating the same thing now for my april wedding.

    I was a bridesmaid in a wedding a couple of years ago and the bride did all the flowers herself out of paper. It was absolutely gorgeous!
