    I didn’t vote as I think the options are two exreme. It doesn’t look so cheap that I would worry, but it’s not gorgeous either. I think it’s just fine and honestly quite good for DIY with fake flowers.

    It doesn’t look “cheap” necessarily, but it doesn’t look real (not sure if that’s what you were going for). I don’t usually care for silk flowers because I’ve never seen any that look real. But, I’ll say that it’s a good thing all the flowers you chose are in natural colors (not navy blue roses and metallic hydrangeas and whatnot, lol).

    I think this is definitely usable. It’s not gorgeous necessarily but I don’t think it looks bad/cheap either. I don’t think anyone will think to themselves that you are cheap or your arch sucked πŸ™‚

    @bluebelle23:  It’s a good base, but you can add some other elements (like organza drapes or lights) to add more effect and volume to it.

    There’s no such thing as being cheap. It all depends how creative you can be.

    Example, I’m planning to make these paper roses below. Paper is cheap, but depend how you do it, you can make it look elegant.

    It doesn’t look real, obviously, but it looks nice.

    @bluebelle23:  In all reality, depending how close the camera is close to the flowers, chances are, you won’t notice them. Only you would know that they are fake.

    I’m also using silk flowers because of the cost and the fact I can assemble them ahead of time plus I can sell them to recoup some money back. 

    One of my friends used silk flowers, and honest to god no one knew until she pointed it out. Definitely experiment with different combos or looks, and take a picture of it. See if you like it or not and keep fixing it πŸ™‚

    From that angle it looks more like an inverted V instead of an arch. If that is not what you are going for, I’d suggest altering the shape to curve gently.

    I’m also not sure how big you planned on.  If it’s a static display over the alter, I’d want to make it as grand as I could, since people will be looking in its general direction for the duration of the ceremony.  If it’s something that is carried in, the size should be all right.

    The color selection looks really good and from a distance I don’t think it will make a difference.

    I love the colors! Looks very natural. It migt be the way it’s hanging on the door, but I’d try to make sure it’s a good arch and not V-shaped, like above poster said. Great job πŸ™‚
