@S_hazeleyes:  I love everything except the feathers.. maybe I’m a feather hater. LOL.  But seriously, for a fraction of the cost, it looks beautiful!

I like it- you did a pretty amazing job re-creating the original! The only thing I would change is to make the round lower part fuller & not so tight/together. Looking at it the bottom white flower part appears to be more of a flower band around the vase than a full floral arrangement… Other than that it’s gorgeous!

I think the bottom on your version needs to be wider and looser. But they;re really not bad as-is.

Did you use silk flowers? It’s gorgeous and for a fraction of the price!

Love this. Well done you! The only thing do can think of off the top of my head to solve the visible from the bottom issue is maybe fill with water and float a fairly thick layer of petals on top of the water? That way from the bottom all you will see is the floating petals? This sounds silly even to me when I type it – hopefully the other bees have more ideas for you!

I think it’s beautiful!! If you’re wanting to hide the underside of the flowers maybe put a thick white ribbon around the top of the vase. It might be a pretty cost efficient way to hide it if the ribbon is large enough.

awesome job! 

Can you cover the styrofoam in your wedding colors fabric before you put the flowers in?
