They look nice.

I think the stems on your bouquets could be a little shorter though, and I would wrap the stems of the bouts with ribbon, but other than that, you did a wonderful job:-)

I think the biggest problem with your bouquets is the design looks dated. They remind me of the bouquets that were all the rage in the 90’s with bold colors always paired with white, and a perfectly round shape to them. I feel like more modern bouquets look a lot more organic, have a much more relaxed and looser shape, and use more muted colors. I found a picture (below)

I think they look nice! What a relief to get them done and out of the way. Good for you!

I think you did a great job! Are you going to add any flower crystals or a little bling on the ribbon? These are all just ideas how you have them now is perfectly fine! I have started gathering inspiration pictures because I plan on doing mine also. I am with Medina I might need some guidance from you. LOL

Dude, Twinkle–y’ouch!

I am amazed at people who make their own bouquets—I think you used a great variety and should be pleased with them.  I second that the stems are a bit too long, but otherwise–I’d say leave ’em be!  bravo.

They look awesome!  I am DIYing mine but with fabric flowers and I’ve been too afraid to start.  Where did you get all the flowers from?  They look better than what I’ve seen at my craft stores.  Or maybe it’s all the variety you used.  Love the colors.

I really like them! I just ordered mine from afloral.com and im happy with choosing fake flowers. Honestly, im not in love with the 2 blue rhinestones. I would add them elsewhere. Also, the white in your bouquet will go great with your dress … I would not worry about that outdated comment.
