I think you have done a great job.

I’m not using fresh flowers either.  I have ordered a felt flower bouquet from Princess Lasertron.  And I will be using candles in glassware for centre pieces.

I think you should stick to the vision that works for you.  Some brides have to have fresh flowers, some don’t. On the plus side, your bouquet will last long past your wedding day as a keepsake.

We’re doing a combination of tissue paper poms and roses made from cardstock. This was my first try with the paper roses. This is what they’re looking like now.

I don’t have a completed picture, but I looked at hydrangea/rose combo centerpieces for inspiration. They’re going into mason jars – 5-6 poms and about 5 roses, dark purple roses with white poms, and storybook roses with dark purple poms.

@CrispyRN:  My Future Mother-In-Law has made about 90% of the roses. She’s a machine. It’s amazing. 🙂

 

She managed to find a bunch of different books and online tutorials while we were kicking around ideas. I can dig up the one we modified if you’re interested. She’s also done some improvisation (I think to keep from being bored) which has had some pretty good results. 🙂
