What do you mean by cheap?

No I don’t think they look cheap.  I don’t think you need to add any sort of outline to the lily though, I think the purple is enough and makes it stand out against your wedding dress

One of the things that I don’t love about non-real flower bouqs is that the stems look a lil dwarfish.  If this design is what you like, the only thing I would add is a lil more volume to the handle (you can use piping since you a covering up the stems with ribbon) and voila!  A more substantial bouquet in an instant.

One last thing, I don’t really get the fallish looking leaves with the brilliant lilies.  They just seem to be from different seasons.

They are a little on the small side. You mentioned adding more purple, which would be a great start. But in your inspiration picture, each bouqet has at least 3 lillies. They also included orange roses, which is another option for filling our your Bridesmaid or Best Man bouqets. You could have multiple white lillies for your bouqet, or you use a few of the smaller orange lillies, orange roses, or white roses to surround the large white flower you already have. 

The llilies are bright enough on their own. The fall leaves are what cheapens the overall effect, In My Humble Opinion. I would leave them off alltogether or replace them with something green (real or fake).

@constellation: I agree now that you pointed that out.  The bouquet would look great with at least 3 lillies

@woodwindwaker: I get the color scheme and I like purple and orange.  I just don’t love the look of fall leaves with a flower that does not appear to be particularly fall-ey.

@woodwindwaker: In your inspiration pic, I think i fell in love with these Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses! Sorry to be off-topic, but do you have any idea where you found this image? Or where the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses came from?

Also, the lilies look spectacular! I love how vibrant they are!
