    Perhaps a shimmery white ribbon around the base.  Otherwise, they’re so beautiful!

    I think a lace bouquet wrap would look so amazing.

    I think it looks great, maybe just some more pearls/buttons/bling in the centre of the flowers to make them jump out a bit more

    More pearls and brooches, it still looks “naked” but don’t change the color, I like the beigy-ness of the flowers!

    I would change the wrap on the stems, and add some jewels to it.

    THey just seem a bit small to me. I think they’re very pretty, but need to be a bit bigger.

    So I seriously voted for crystal because they are beautiful, but I think they could ue a littler sparkle or glitter.

    But I also voted for “Drug all the guests so they’ll trip out and think they’re awesom” just because I think that is a hilarious option

    Why don’t you put a colored ribbon on the stem? To match your girls dresses.

    Blingy broaches would be worth a try, I think it would be really pretty. Great job I love the direction you’ve got going!

    They’re really pretty, but they feel a bit heavy. If you could insert two or three additional flowers made of a stiff tulle or something similarly airy, I think it would make a world of difference. You have tons of gorgeous texture already, but all of them are similar in that they all have a certain weight to them. I think that’s the problem.

    A very, very subtle pink-ish shade (sort of straddling the line between fawn and pink) might also add visual interest while still keeping the color pallette pretty neutral.
