I like it πŸ™‚ but not too much of a fan of the wire over it.

I love it! I love the mix of flower and brooch and the mixed colors. The lace bow is a little froofy for me, personally, but if you’re a lacey girly girl, then it’s perfect!

The silver flowers and the wire are throwing me off.  And the roses, IMO, look like gum paste flowers that you’d find on a cake.  Because of the foam, they don’t have the texture that a real flower (or even a good silk) would have.  I like the overall color scheme (minus the silver) and I think the lace is a nice touch.  The shape is great, too.

I think it looks nice! I kind of agree – I’m not sure about the wire. I think it would look fine without it. I understand where you’re coming from, trying to tie the flowers and the brooches together, but it seems like the wire should be incorporated more, rather than being laid on top.  But I think the brooches look really cute with the rest of the flowers. If you want to use the wire, is there a way to arrange it so it kind of fills in between flowers, rather than laying on top of them? Or maybe even find places to pinch the wire so it’s  a little mini “sprig” sticking out?

Personally, rather than the big bow, I’d just maybe wrap the lace around the stems, or make the bow smaller (thinner lace?)

Regardless of my opinion, it’s still lovely! Whatever you do, don’t feel bad about the flowers (I think they’re lovely!) and don’t get rid of the brooches – the sentimental things like that are what make your wedding special!

No, I love the wire!  I love the texture of the flowers and I think the metal mixed in is super neat and very pretty.

Very pretty! I’d lose the lace bow and just wrap the lace around the handle.
