Add a few more flowers (daisies?) in there, it looks a little empty in some spots.  Personally, I’m not a fan of the twisty things but they definitely match your quirky theme!

If you can try an encorporate some darker colours in there like eggplant or brown it would help with the balance too…

It’s a little bright for my taste, could you tone it down a bit with a few of the darker colors in your theme?

Looks like it could use more dimension… Adding a lil darker colors so it’s not just all orange. Or maybe some bright yellow….I def think that would help it pop more. I’m not a big fan of the way it looks right now. I think with a few changes it could be great thou.

Its hard to tell holding it in mid-air like that. Do you have a picture with you holding it against your body? I don’t think it looks tacky at all. Kind of a nice change!

@lauramae89:  Here are some inspiration pics that have some more darker colours in them for balance. Also as a side note, artificals arent a bad things if you do them right. I am doing all silks for my wedding and am super happy with my choice. It took me 3 completely different drafts of my bouquet to get to something that i liked, so dont give up 🙂 It is smart of you to start so early because it will give you more time. I started on all my stuff more that a year before the date.

Honestly, I am not a fan of fake flowers. I think paper flowers or a completely different type of “bouquet” would be a better idea.

@lauramae89:  Afloral is a great website that might help you out a lot. They have some awesome stuff on there. I unfortunately have a problem ordering from there because i am in Canada and the shipping is crazy expensive.

Here is a link to their fall stuff
