I started working on my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, and I am at a loss. I found some glitter flowers that I want to incorporate but I do not know if it work. Our wedding is New Years Eve, not sure if that makes a difference to anyone.
Below are the pictures of the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, groomsmen boutonnieres, and mother’s corsages. There are with and without the glitter flowers. Please let me know what you guys think. Not sure why the Groomsmen flowers are so small but you get the idea

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.

Cut the flowers down and redid the bouquet, etc. Tell me what you guys think of the redos!

@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..
