    I like your bouquet the way it is, I wouldn’t add those other flowers. I’m doing silk as well, I could not justify spending all that money or fresh flowers when they die.

    I too like the bouquet with just the peonies.  They look real to me!

    They look very real and very nice! LOVE the pink Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, I think that’s a very flattering color. Maybe in real life the flower might look fake, but no one is going to see your flowers close up. And in photos, which is what really matters, they look gorgeous! Good for you!

    Ok so I was thinking about doing silk flowers as well because real red roses are SO expensive! Where did you order your bouquet from? I’m on a very limited budget because I over spent on my dress which I don’t regret! haha HELP! =)

    Does it look real? No.

    Does it look nice? Absolutely. You did a good job.

    @dancingfox:  Thanks for posting pics from that site, it’s one I have been eyeballing to mix some DIY fabric flowers with the same pink peonies you purchased.  The only thing that doesn’t look real is the leaves, but it looks really nice and it looks real in the next to last flower pic above.  

    I think once it’s all wrapped up and you are all dolled up no one is going to notice a little thread on the flowers.

    @Hyperventilate:  Agree. They’re lovely and well arranged but they don’t look real unfortunately.

    I think you did a great job but I don’t think the white ones look real. The darker pink ones look more real to me but I wouldn’t worry about it bc it’s still pretty!!

    Not real but well done.  The pink flowers look better than the white ones.  If you add more pink, it would help.  I don’t think billy balls really go with that bouqet though, too modern.

    I dont think they look real at all.

    If your trying to go for a real look, I would keep looking, or even go for a cheaper flower that is real. 

    If your going for something pretty, real or not, then they are very nice!
