Okay now I love them even more, I saw your dress in another post and loved it! The dress and the boquet together are HOTT! I’m glad you don’t have a white dress, the red makes the feathers and flowers even more fantastic!

I love the bouquets! I think you did an excellent job. I’m worried, though, that they might blend in or clash with your beautiful dress. Might you incorporate some white or other shades of red? You could even put a little orange and pink in there; it would give some variation and it doesn’t have to match the rest of the wedding exactly, since it’s your bouquet. That would give a nice contrast between you and your bridesmaids, and theirs could still be solid red, which would compliment your dress beautifully.

Like a lot of other Bees, not my style, but they are well executed and seem in really good keeping with your look.

My only concern is that you check to make sure that the red of the bouquet goes with your dres really well. Reds of different shades look especially off when put together. If your dress and the bouquets aren’t a perfect match in tone of red (the picture looks kind of pink, but could just be lighting), I would recommend making a new one just for you. Maybe with white flowers. I think if your BMs carry bouquets that are slightly off from your dress, it won’t be a problem, I just think your bouquet should match very closely.

I love them – thanks for clarifying that the roses are also feather because that was my first question.

Is your family aware of the theme of your wedding? Because … while I love them and the Hives seems to love them, … I can hear my grandma’s reaction in my head, and she ain’t loving them.

They’re cool, but they’re definitely pretty non-traditional as far as bouquets go, and you’ve mentioned how brutal your family can be – so it might be wise to steel yourself against their reactions, just in case. Does that make sense? No matter what all of us think, they’ll form their own opinion. If they vocalize that in a hurtful way, just remember…. we all love them!

I think they’re perfect for your theme. I’m not really a fan of feathers but it’s your day. Don’t let your family bring you down.

I think they look perfect!  I love that the feathers are around the bottom almost showcasing the flowers!  However…..there is always a But……I am also concerned how they will look next to your dress becasue you want them to be exactly the same or noticeably different so it doesnt look like a mistake that was over looked.  But aside from that I think you did a beautiful job putting them together!  i am making my bouquets as well with silks!  did you use pins or how did you hold the ribbon on?  By The Way I love the white on the ribbon!  Sealed

I really like them, they’re totally funky!  Since you promised your feelings wouldn’t be hurt: I personally prefer real flowers to fake, and I think they would look awesome with fresh red roses.  But if you like the “look” of faux, then you’re spot-on!

@Magenta:  Oh that’s a bummer … do you guys have costco in PR?  I know they have really really affordable bulk flowers, and you have the skills to put it together…or check fiftyflowers.com, maybe they ship to PR?
