I’m no florist, but my first impression is that they look like the big fake roses you can get at craft stores. I would go to hobby lobby or michaels and buy a few so you can play around with them and see what you like. I don’t know what specific breed of roses they model them after, but they definitely look like those!

I am not sure what kind of roses they are, do you realize they are silk? Not that you can’t have silk roses at you wedding, but that is probably why they look so perfect.

edit: oops someone beat me to the punch

While your roses do look like silk roses and not real ones, I don’t know if that is necessarily a horrible thing. A large pomander of silk rose heads might look very lovely. I would play around with them, maybe mix some other textured flowers or materials in with the roses. On their own they look unnatural, but if you add some smaller silk flowers, buds, or even berries, pods, and other unusual textures, you could come up with something great!
