@kenobee:  Beautiful!! Can’t even tell it’s faux in the closeup! I agree with putting a little more green in maybe in the top view for a bit more contrast if you like.

@kenobee:  It looks nice, simple and clean. I’m just distracted by that one flower with the crown-like pointy looking petals (don’t know what it’s called). It looks out of place and too sharp for a bouquet. But ultimately, you will be the one carrying it so if you like it, go for it.

Well done. I think it looks marvellous and actually like the white protea! A little fresh ivy on the day will be perfect.

I like it! Except I agree with pp that the sharp spiky crown flower doesn’t match. I would take that one out, otherwise it looks great !

@socalgirl1689:  Agreed. It’s lovely but this flower looks like it was cut out of paper and sticks out like a sore thumb.  Otherwise, it’s beautiful! I think without that distraction it will be really pretty. Nice job!

I like it, but def agree with other PPs about the spiky one. It’s way distracting.

It looks beautiful! I do agree the spikey one throws me off.. it kind of looks like paper or plastic cut to look like a flower! 
I had a silk flower bouquet with dried babies breath and I loved not being a sneezy snotty itchy mess!!!!

I think it’s gorgeous! I also made my bouquet from artificial flowers, since my husband and I both have allergies. I might be concerned that the real ivy could make the greenery in your bouquet look more plasticky though. That was the part I found hard when I made my bouquet, all the fake greenery I found just looked really fake.

Honestly I can tell that they’re dale flowers, but no one on the day will be seeing them as close up probably as we are. 

If it were me I’d do a fresh bouquet made up entirely of greenery and focus on different textures and shades of green and variegated to make it more appealing.

@kenobee: I love, love fresh flowers; however, anything bigger than a small bouquet and I’m sneezing! So it’ll be fresh and silk flowers for me. At first I was concerned with what guest would say, but most of my family and friends are aware of my condition. Also, I went to a wedding last year where they used silks, they were beautiful and no one seemed to mind. They even took the centerpieces home.

Silk flowers may not be for everyone, but you have to focus on what works best for you, your style and your budget.

Sidenote* I like the “spikey white flower”.
