    I don’t think they look quite right, sort of like they were added as an after thought/ don’t fit in the arrangement.

    What if you just dusted the roses with a bit of glitter?

    I think the glitter flowers will work,especially as it is  New Year’s Eve wedding, but I think the proportions are wrong.

    Let’s start with the boutonnieres. I would use only one rose, the glitter flower and add a stem of greenery. Maybe even trim the glitter flower so it is a little smaller.

    For the mother’s corsages reduce the number of roses to only one, two or three, depending on which look you prefer and add the glitter flower

    For the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets reduce the number of glitter flowers to 3, tuck them down in amongst the roses more and add some small filler flowers in white and blue.

    @BrookieCookie9:  oh that looks a lot better, I think most of the problem before was that they were squishing the roses

    @julies1949:  that’s awesome tutorial! i love flower arranging and the proportions are very important. OP any possibility the glitter flowers can be a little smaller? if not, i would suggest just one in the bout – in your original pics you have two roses plus a glitter flower in the back – i would do two roses in the same orientation with the glitter one in the front bottom to the GM’s left or a flip flop of the orientation and the glitter flower to the front bottom right.

    the bouquets still look a bit off as the shape of the glitter flower doesn’t seem to blend well on it’s own with the roses.  i wonder if some sort of filler flower might help with the transition..spray painted baby’s breath or something similar?  Another option could be to use a bouquet ball and make it round. you can wire the sparkly flower and have them spread out more over the top.. like this..
