So tell me what you think about these… the biggest problem i ran into was that bc i used alot of smaller flowers to accent and fill in and used alot of flowers bought in bunches vs individual stems my stems were really really skinny like less than pencil skinny and looks so horrible…
How did i overcome this… easy with a trip to lowes $2 pipe insulation a craft knife and some duck tape:) Perfect size squishy handles that were easy to wrap
My Bouquet and my toss bouquet
After Wracking my brain on my something BLUE I decided to add two blue rhinestones to my bouquet… but Im not sure if I am in love with that… What do you think?
I’m not sure what to do about the boys bouts… do you think they look ok with just the floral tape on them?
EDIT:::::: completely forgot to add all the other bouquets LOL
3 bridesmaids bouqets… My daughters in back (she didnt want to be a flower girl she wanted to carry a bouquet & Maid/Matron of Honor

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:-)

Thanks for the opinions 🙂
Yeah i wasnt sure how short i needed to cut the stems… I just went with what would fit well in a shorter vase to display them…
I definately think my Maid/Matron of Honor stems are too long but LOL i really dont want to have to unwrap and redo it LOL

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 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

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.
