Hi, i am looking for an alternative to a fresh flower bouquet and have come across paper bouquets. Has anyone had one? Do they look good or a bit cheap in real life, ive only seen them online and how robust are they?

Having an outdoor wedding ceremony made a paper flower bouquet a no-go for my St. Louis summer wedding (too risky with sudden thunderstorms). But I am doing paper flower centerpieces for the covered reception space.

Some of the tissue paper flowers in my centerpieces are incredibly delicate, while a few of the crepe paper flowers can be dropped from quite a height and come out no worse for the wear.
Here’s one of my centerpieces. Each centerpiece has about 40 floral stems and takes me roughly 25 hours to make:
