    I think they look ok but might look better with some more natural looking greenery and take away those little white things. I’m going to DIY my bouts/bouquets too and haven’t even gone there yet and my wedding is a week after yours. I found  stems of real touch orchids at Hobby Lobby for 14-20$ea with enough flowers on one of them to make all the grooms bouts. Haven’t thought how to put it together though. Good luck!

    They dont look bad at all, but the texture of the flower looks like a cake fondant flower.

    They look great! No one will even notice them, so I would leave them as is! They will photograph nicely!

    I’ll be honest…they don’t look spectacular but that is the last thing people will be looking at so I say save them money and have them wear them!  There is so much other stuff that require your budget and time!

    Don’t want to steal your thunder etc 😛 Here’s mine, they are latex calla lillies with saftey pins and ribbon hot glued to the base. I love yours and the only thing I would personally change is make the stems a little shorter so they don’t stick out soo much

    Those are cute, but I love fresh flowers so I am biased. Do you have grocery stores near you that sell calla lilies? They’re actually not that expensive, $8 a bunch. You would need 2 max, depending on how many groomsmen you have.

    I think they look great! I however have to agree with @Ang3lfir3 on cutting the stems to make them shorter.

    @bmo88:  Nice job! I think they look cute. I have to agree with the three flowers idea since odd numbers seems to be the rule in things decor. The pearl buttons could also go without any loss to the look, but that’s only me. I’m more into simple arrangements.
