I like them! Petals would look nice, but I think this way looks good, too. Especially since most people won’t be seeing them up close–I think the effect will be the same. Feathers sound like a fun touch!

I like the mix and match! It doesn’t scream “formal” to me, but if the dresses, shoes and bouquets are, then I’m sure the fascinators won’t take the look away.

I feel like they may be a bit better if you cut the layers into multiple petals, and burned the edges of each petal. Right now they look very flat to me, and I think more petals would add some dimension to them.

To get it to look fuller, like this:

You don’t need to cut individual petals, but you do need to do graduated sizes of circles.

 

Put the smaller ones on top, and it should fill in the space. The uneven burnt edge should do the rest. You could even do ovals to get a more overlapping (rose-like) look. That way you can add to what you have, rather than starting over.

If you did cut petals, it would look like this:

Which I’m not as fond of anyway, and it seems like much more work.

 

Try etsy for inspiration, and to see the different variations on this type of flower. 

 

I like the look of the different coloured layers. I think it adds depth. As to the formality of it, this style of flower has a more whimsical, cute feel rather than elegant and formal, but I don’t think it would look out of place for your wedding, and will look lovely.
