Just use rubber bands while you’re getting it right. Cheap and easier and it’s only temporary. The wrapping and unwrapping is a pain and you shouldn’t even bother until it looks the way you want it to look.

I agree, it’s a good start.  Even though red is one of our colors, I think THESE particular red ones don’t go well.  They’re too flat, like another poster mentioned and they don’t resemble real flowers at all (to me anyway).  I definitely wouldn’t give up on the idea – I think it has the potential to be gorgeous if you move some things around and replace the flat red ones.

Also, I’m in the same boat with a lot of things I’m doing and people not “getting it.”  I’m doing button boutonnieres which everyone has thought was crazy.  They also don’t get my blue wedding shoes – one of my BMs literally asked me three times, “Tell me again why you would even consider wearing blue shoes?”  Some people just don’t “get” that you don’t want to do things like everyone else has done them … and guess what, that’s a GOOD thing!

@curlygirlybride: I guess mine would be considered free form. I didn’t use a styrofoam ball or anything like that to shape mine.  I used a ton of floral wire, hot glue, and floral tape to put mine together.
