have you considered paper flowers?  they may be easier and cheaper.

Definitely not my style, but it’s your wedding!

I think they are cute and unique. If you have a talent or skill like that, I definitely think you should incorporate it in your wedding:)

The first two words that came to mind were “cute” and “kitchy.”  If there are a lot of other crafty elements (like a quilt guestbook) or you’re known for sewing, they could work but it definitely has the potential to go wrong, especially in large doses.  Ultimately,  it’s your wedding and you should do what you like! 🙂 

I am, however, a huge fan of the coffee filter flowers.  There was a recent gallery post for a beach wedding where the bride found tons of fake peonies and they were absolutely beautiful! and a great price if I remember correctly.

Not a huge fan of these although I think if you chose more natural or subdued colors it would probably grow on me.  But as most others said you should use your talents to save money and do what makes you happy as it is your day.  I crochet myself and find it very stress relieving.  It might actually be fun for you to make since weddings can get so stressful and crocheting can help you unwind a little.  But I find that yarn has become so darn expensive lately in the more popular colors and that you may not save that much money as these look like they require a lot of yarn.  All the women in my family crochet.  If I went with something like this I would have it be more meaningful and personal by perhaps asking each woman in my family to crochet one flower for my bouquet.  They would look more natural when bound together too as everyone has their own style and some would be loser or tighter stitches.
