I like the colors that you’ve picked.  As for the shape, I think you need to decide if you want a ball or not.  If you do, the flowers all need to be about the same level, rather than the roses sticking out so far.  If you want something more relaxed, then you should probably stay away from the spherical shape entirely.  Either way I’d suggest a little more going on with the fir/spruce branches.  Cluster htem so they don’t look like strays you shoved in to fill space.  Likewise with the ivy. Maybe you have more ivy there but from this angle it looks like “crap there’s a hole here… what can I fill it with?”  I do really think it would help a lot to have your plants all about the same length, though!

Personally I prefer more relaxed bouquets where the greenery hangs down some.  My own bouquet was a lot rounder than I expected for sure and I wish I’d known that’s what the florist was thinking so I could have corrected the plan.

One question/suggestion – It looks like this is for a wintery wedding.  How about some berries in there?  You could make them pop up a little like the spruce does.  Example below in all the wrong colors, but I’m pretty sure white or even gold berries are possible.

Agree with PP that it needs to be more level/smoother to look like a proper arrangement. Ideally working with a floral “belle” would help I think if you haven’t already to give it structure. Attaching a picture of mine because I made felt roses and inserted them into an oasis foam belle with other little fake flowers and felt leaves.

I love the roses! Did you make them yourself? I agree, more level may look a bit better if you wanted to improve things, but I really like what you’ve done. You may want to bring in the pine bits so they don’t stick out as much like the other photos have done, however it looks good as is!

watson2be:  I love it!  My only suggestion would be to add a few more white flowers where there are a couple of holes so that you can’t see down into the bouquet.

I like the arrangement. I agree that a little more spherical would be better, but not too much. Great job! I love the colors you chose.
