It really depends on the look you are going for, do you have inspiration photos? I personally like the look of all the same size but then depending on the way its arranged it can also look good with various sizes too

I initially thought it would be nice with a few small and a few large but I can’t find any photos of it on google!

So with that said, maybe sticking with all the same size will be best!

The test flowers look great! I think you should stick with one size, and then after it’s finished you can add more to it if you feel it needs it.

I was hell-bent on doing tissue paper flowers for the BMs until one of them got squished and ripped by a dog paw. They’re fragile, they tear, they get crunched. If you can figure out a way to transport them (maybe make a few extras just in case!), I say GO FOR IT! I’m lovin’ your colors ๐Ÿ™‚

@DeathByDesign: I love your test flowers? How did you make those? They don’t look like the regular coffee filter roses I’ve seen floating around here… any tutorials?


EDIT: I like the idea (and simplicity) of just making them all the same size,at least if you’re using the same kind of flower all around… but if you decided to make a different kind of flower (lily, for example) then it would add visual interest to make some of those larger or smaller.

All the same:

The colors are great! I think I would go with all the same size so there are no odd gaps and that way you can have a set amount for each bouquet. I think it will be so cute!!! Just make sure there are extras in case of damages ๐Ÿ™‚ The trials look great tho. Post when they are done ๐Ÿ™‚

Also would like to throw in my $.02:  I see that you’re getting married in 2/12 – don’t make these too soon as the paper might yellow/change color/wilt/crumple/whatever.  Save this project for January 2012!!!

@DeathByDesign: Oh wow, those are so nice and easy! Why don’t you try a mock up of both ways? make two small bouquets: one with the colors of flowers all the same size, and one where some are larger than others and see what you like best? You could always use the flowers you don’t use for something else anyway i’m sure!
