Artificial flower haters beware!
My Fiance is extremely allergic to flowers and as is my mom. Things aren’t pretty when Fiance comes near flowers/trees/outdoor things haha (i.e during his allergy test the test spot/blotches lit up light a christmas tree! and no allergy meds will help if his sorrounded by it). So we were strolling along michaels originally looking for invitations (which we are getting with some awesome 50% off coupons this week!) and I saw some clearance flower arrangements on sale 70% off. I bought 6 of each of the ones I liked planning to take bits of each to make bouquets and it came out to about 47$ CAD. With that I made my bouquet along with my three brides maid bouquets and one extra just in case. I now plan to return the other 6 I didnt use for a refund unless I come up with an idea for centre pieces. So 4 brides made bouquets and one giant bouquet for me (hehe) came out to 24$ 🙂
Anyway! I was wondering what you think 🙂 and any suggestions to improve them. Thanks!
this is how they each came:
this is the brides maid bouquets (they arent done yet, going to add some other little flower add ons
This is my bouquet (its not complete or actually wrapped how I want it yet)

I’m doing a brooch bouquet for mine. I have collected brooches for places i have vistied over the years as well as borrowed some from friends. I have all my something old new borrowed and blue int the bouquet. So you might want to jazz it up a bit with some bling. It is a matter of tast.

I’m all about real flowers but love these! The only thing I might suggest is swapping out the greens for something that looks a little more life-like – that’s the part my eye is drawn to when I look at the bouquets.
Really like your bouqet though, so pretty!!!

I am not against fake flowers and I think you assembled them very well! However, I think you will have better results by mixing in just a few of the higher quality fakes with the cheapies.

mimigirl7: yah because they were “fall” bouquets the greens were this faded color, I plan on waiting until all the christmas stuff is gone and get some spring/summer fakes to swap the faded greens out with 🙂
